Brutus Nation

Front Cover
FriesenPress, Mar 3, 2016 - Fiction - 162 pages
Welcome to Brutus Nation, a ferocious, all-guns-blazing, neo-noir thriller set in the dog-eat-dog world of Athenian Union, where corruption, extortion, and murder are mere appetizers, and annihilation of every living enemy is the main course.
It all begins with a vicious homicide, the kind that leaves grizzled detectives shaken and stumped. Add to that a betting junkie in over his head, a grieving father out for revenge, an aging gangster seeking to prove he still has lead in his pencil, a militarized police force jockeying for its slice of the pie, and a mob lieutenant determined to seize control of the whole enchilada. Put it all together, and you have one of the most explosive debut novels of this century. Or any century.
Get ready for mayhem. Prepare for pandemonium. Brace yourself . . . for Brutus Nation....

About the author (2016)

Had he been born 200 years earlier, author Kris Kyzer would likely have amassed an army of merciless mercenaries, taken over a small country, and established his own "Brutus Nation." There, he would have dispensed all manner of pleasures to his subjects-and all sorts of cruelty to the enemies of his realm. Instead, he has set his sights on world domination via another means: exploring the slime and grime of the foulest, filthiest, most rat-infested warrens the urban jungle has to offer and populating his fiction with ruthless hitmen, debased politicians, predatory moneymen, unhinged kingpins and unscrupulous cops. For Kyzer, Brutus Nation is just the beginning. The beginning of a series. The beginning of a movement. The beginning of an empire. Hail Kyzer!...
