Review: Brute

Brute Brute by Con Sellers
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Con Sellers manages to mix action, espionage, and romance into a compelling novel that tells the story of Brad Saxon, an immense brute of a man, inclined to bursting through walls, mirrors, and doors - or just ripping them off their hinges, and frequently beating the crap out of guys. Former GI and pro football player Saxon’s unrequited love for a Japanese prostitute that he hasn’t talked to in nine years takes him back to Japan to try to marry her - a bad idea as he stumbles into a complex plot by communists and the Japanese underworld to use hookers to record private conversations of US military officers in a effort to undermine US security. Plenty of hard-boiled violence, and some surprisingly touching and elegant sex scene narrative make this an interesting and fun read.
