Kramer and Shadow are forced to take on a new team member when their nemesis surfaces with plans to exact retribution from America on a monumental scale that will have 9/11 pale in comparison. People on all sides have their own scores to settle. Who will be left standing after the dust settles? In LEX TALIONIS Greg Smith has written a strong story with an intriguing premise; one that can easily become all too real in this day and age. Smith takes the reader into Kramer’s doubts and struggles with his own demons as he leads his team against a malevolent opponent. They face an almost untenable situation with survival questionable. “Smith is the Hemmingway of crime fiction. Brutal, concise, and elegant.” David Bailey, English Professor Director, and CEO at Bailey Education Professionals.
