Terminal Life by Richard Torregrossa

Terminal Life

I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.


Book Description:

Luke Stark, a Special Forces veteran, returns home from his second tour in Afghanistan to learn that his wife has been mysteriously murdered and his son has disappeared. These tragedies, in addition to suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, push him over the edge. He has also been diagnosed with an incipient form of cancer, but he forgoes treatment, a decision that is akin to a slow suicide.

Although he languishes in a shelter, he wears an impeccable suit, an eccentric characteristic that sets him apart from his fellow down-and-outers and just about everybody else. He is nicknamed, somewhat ironically, The Suited Hero.

Revenge and the search for his son spark a kind of rebirth in him that is as cathartic as it is brutal. This leads him into the dangerous world of illegal prescription drug distribution, where nobody in this gripping mystery crime thriller— not even some family members—is who they appear to be.


Luke’s wife, as stated in the description, was brutally and mysteriously murdered while he was in Afghanistan and his son is missing. He will stop at nothing to catch his wife’s murderer and sons kidnapper. Luke is a bit of a mystery. He believes that clothes, and the way you wear them, give people an image and that they can help you transition from one part of life to another.

We first encounter Luke when he is on the way to a job interview. The lady who is interviewing him doesn’t seem interested in him being there for the interview and is rude by taking a PERSONAL call in the middle of the interview.


This book was an absolutely AMAZING read. There’s a lot going on and I couldn’t decide what to put in here and what not to include. I don’t want to give too much away. All I can say is, THIS BOOK IS WORTH GETTING! There is no other way to put it. This book is one that will be staying on my bookshelf and one that will be read often!
