Los Angeles is a city under siege.
When Detective Addison Mowbray begins investigating the murders of two young women in the Hollywood Hills, he can’t imagine where the case will lead. He suspects the crimes were inspired by an occult fascination due to some missing body parts and the inverted Christian cross branded on the victims’ breasts. But apart from Addison’s temperamental partner, Jed, the only other person keen on them pursuing that line of investigation is Lilly Coniglio, a medical examiner from the Coroner’s Department.
The LAPD is already under immense public pressure due to all the bad press another killer—a vigilante—has brought to their door: it’s been over a year since the first organized crime figure showed up full of holes, with a plastic police badge beside his body.
As Addison and Jed navigate a murky, disturbing occult landscape in search of answers, they uncover something even more terrifying than a killer hiding in the shadows: an organization so vile and powerful that it changes their lives forever. These two troubled detectives are all that stand between this organization and a spectacular season of carnage.
Set against a backdrop of urban bleakness and social inequality, Sons of Brutality combines deeply flawed protagonists with human monsters, integrating strong dialogue, violent action, and gripping suspense.
About The Author
Daniel Jeudy is the alter ego for a former salesman, singer and shameless wanderer who spent his younger days living in the moment. His French and black Irish mother ensured books of every variety were always within arm’s reach throughout his childhood.
Daniel strongly believes in the preservation of creative freedom, irrespective of what an author’s views or opinions might be. Because there is already way too much vanilla in the world, right?
His first novel, Sons of Brutality, draws heavily on situations he faced in smoke-filled spaces around the world in the 1990s and 2000s, the underworld culture he experienced while on tour in America, and a random vacation when he travelled alone to Moscow in 1998.
Daniel has written and collaborated on a broad range of musical projects. He lives in the Blue Mountains, Australia, with his wife, Lilly, and their two American Staffordshire dogs. Sons of Brutality is the first book in the Addison Mowbray trilogy. The second and third volumes will be available later in 2021.
