Mobsters and gangsters continue to capture the public’s attention whether in fiction or real life. Stereotypes of these citizens of the criminal underworld linger through Hollywood productions like “Goodfellas”, “The Godfather” and “Gangs of New York”. In his new novel, “Retribution”, Lee Trawick delivers the same potent mix of menace, intrigue and violence that cemented mobsters’ place in society’s subconscious.

In a small New Jersey town, a young boy, Brad Hampton, has been murdered. Sjock Hampton is determined to find out who his brother’s killer is. His obsession to uncover the truth is rivaled only by his thirst for revenge. As Sjock sets off to finish what has been started, he will find himself enmeshed in an intricate web of lies, corruption, greed and his family’s dark past.

Every step of the way it becomes clearer that retribution will mean nothing less than confronting a powerful enemy—his town’s mob boss— and redeeming his family’s tarnished name. In this complex, multi-layered novel, readers, alongside Sjock, will discover that nothing is ever quite what it seems.

Moving to a stunning crescendo of suspense, “Retribution” is a fast-paced, darkly riveting story of people bound and broken by crime and revenge, power and greed, fury and fear.
