Shadoe Kilbourne is the consummate intellectual assassin, with an impressive arsenal of both wit and weaponry at his disposal. As Seattle’s most successful nightclub owner and restaurateur, he is also a man of great resource, humor, and humanity. His lethal charms and deadly ideologies are a devastating double-edged sword, brandished at will to put the bad guys in their place and get the good girls back to his. Driven by vengeance, derived from a painful and poignant past we can only speculate on, his ties to the highest echelons and lowest corridors of humanity also make him the perfect middleman for those who seek to solicit his fervor and favor in the hunt for his brand of justice, both inside and outside of the law. This book was just named by GQ Magazine as one of the Five Best Books of 2010 along with Stephen King and John Grisham.
