Parabellum by Greg Hickey

A shooting at a Chicago beach leaves several dead and dozens injured. In the year before the attack, four individuals emerge as possible suspects.

An apathetic computer programmer.
An ex-college athlete with a history of head injuries.
An Army veteran turned Chicago cop.
A despondent high school student.

One of them is the shooter. Discover who and why.

Review Dark. Psychological. Timely.The writing crosses the chasm connecting each character’s struggles - emotional pain, fear, anger, and self-discovery. This alone forced me to connect with each of them.Everything about Parabellum was beautifully complex. I particularly enjoyed the underlying analysis of each character’s mindset.I was blown away by the author’s ability to write such phenomenal scenes.I recommend Parabellum to readers interested in a fictional commentary centering on the psyche of those involved in mass shootings.
