People fear what they don’t understand. Maybe that’s why they all fear me. I’m sure they have their reasons, I just couldn’t possibly care what any of them are. As long as they’re afraid.

Born to a drug dealer father and a drug addict mother, I’ve been through enough to make a normal person lose their mind five times over. I’m not normal. Normal is for weak people, and I'm anything but weak.

My childhood was made of nightmares, but there was one light in all my darkness. Her name was Reina Wilde, and when my mother would hit me or pass out in the middle of the living room on her high, I would confide in her. We were from completely different worlds, but she meant something to me, though I never figured out what, because she left. In the years that followed, I built a reputation for myself, and let go of any and all deluded notions of love. 

I’ll never go straight now. It’s just too much fun taking things from people who are powerless to stop me. And make no mistake about it, I take what I want, from who I want, when I want. 

I'm infamous in this city. But everything changes when, after years apart, I finally see Reina again, and she’s standing next to my enemy--the underboss of the Philadelphia mob. 

It’s not just about power anymore. It’s not about respect. No, this is personal now. 

Gasoline has been thrown on the flame, and for Reina, I’m about to burn the whole world to the ground.

I've been a fan of WS Greer for a couple of years, ever since I read Kingpin, and I have to say that Madman is my favorite book by him to date. For me, reading this book was like riding the Fury 325 at Carowinds: you leave the station slowly, but 8 seconds the ascent starts, and by the time I swiped four times on my iPad, the descent and twists and turns kicked in and wouldn't let me go until I got to the end. The book hangover I'm still recovering from is proof positive that this is a fantastically insane story that kept me glued to the pages until I finished.

The only thing I can say about Solomon King is that he isn't an enigma wrapped up in mystery. He is the product of his environment, with zero f#cks to give. It's pretty clear almost from the start that Solomon is a psychopath, and amazingly he's a psychopath who's managed to reach the upper echelon of Philly's underworld in a relatively short amount of time. It's clear from the start of the book what Solomon's end game is, and even Nix to a certain extent, and while we learn why Reina keeps coming back to Strawberry Mansion when they were younger, we really don't get to know much about her, since the story is told through Solomon's POV. We only get to hear from Reina at the end of the book.

Now I will say that this book is long.

WS Greer is an international bestselling author, and an active duty military member with the US Air Force. He's been serving his country since 2004, and has been an author since his debut novel, Frozen Secrets, was released in 2013.
