At the peak of the Coronavirus Pandemic, Jaxton Bello seeks to take his own life on the George Washington Bridge. He is rescued by Cason Sax, an NYPD Sergeant, and September 11th survivor, who rips Jaxton off the ledge and into the hearts of readers. Cason implores Jaxton to return home and rebuild his life with his wife and daughter. Jaxton must first journey into his past, through his consciousness and along the vacant avenues of a New York City on ‘pause.’ During this self-reflection, Jaxton trespasses at shuttered venues, outruns pursuing cops, collides with former love interests and crashes a Black Lives Matter protest. “The Great Silent Roar” is a colorful tale that voyages into a man’s wounded soul and delivers a valentine to the most remarkable city in human history. As riots rage, past demons must be slayed if Jaxton is to reignite his flame for living and complete his odyssey home.
