Assume Nothing
by Gar Anthony Haywood

The new novel from the critically acclaimed and award-winning author

When Joe Reddick and his family are threatened in their LA home by a masked, knife-wielding intruder, it means serious trouble for a gang of desperate criminals. The threat sends Joe Reddick over the edge.

He’s lived the nightmare of losing a family to a crazed killer once, and he’s not going to let it happen again. After sending his wife and son to safety, he goes to war, determined to kill those responsible. Soon Reddick’s living nightmare will finally be over. One way or the other . . .


Haywood sets up the premise skillfully, and he has plenty of surprises in his bag of tricks, turning the plot on its heel just when we think we know where it’s going. There’s also a stellar supporting cast of Elmore Leonard–style goofballs, both lethal and comically banal. A fine thriller from a first-rate writer.
