All over the world, people are mystified by the superhero image. The classic hero—men and women with noble virtues and extraordinary powers— linger in society’s consciousness through numberless Hollywood productions. Author George Lockie reinvents the superhero mythos in “Eye of the Hunter”, a new novel that will rivet readers from beginning to end.

Lockie’s debut unfolds from the 1920s to the Second World War—a time of great change and impending turmoil. At the center of the action is Rory Glassen. Rory learned to kill without remorse at a very young age. Forced to live alone in the wilderness of the Scottish mountains, he was isolated from society with only a grandmother to support him.

Just before the outbreak of the war, Rory encounters troops sent to the mountains for training. Intrigued by their disciplines and comradeship, he would soon become a part of their world and feel, for the first time, needed. His ruthlessness and skill in combat made Rory a valuable asset but these could not prepare him for the tragedy that lay ahead. Driven by a thirst for revenge, Rory will be embroiled in a dangerous game of power where survival will be the least of his concern.

Intricately plotted and relentlessly paced, “Eye of The Hunter” is at once a thrilling, action-packed military saga and an exploration of the dark undercurrents of human nature and society.
