Editorial Reviews


  • "A world worthy of being a sister city to Gotham. Gritty, grimy, and mesmerizing."--Actor Lou Diamond Phillips (Prodigal Son, La Bamba)
  • "White-knuckled and unfiltered. The Roach plunges you into the filth of the city and holds you under."--James S. Murray, #1 Bestselling author of the Awakened series, and star of truTV's Impractical Jokers.
  • "What would happen if Batman was in a wheelchair, drunk, and broke? Surviving in the big city, and taking on crime is tough enough when you're at the top of your game. 'The Roach' is about being at the bottom. Great narration and dialogue, Rhett C. Bruno brings to life a character who'd rather be dead... or at least has a death wish."-- Darick Robertson, co-creator of The Boys (now a Prime Original Series)  
  • "A dark and powerful journey into the broken mind of a crippled vigilante, clawing his way out of despair to protect his legacy and his city. Reader beware: once you crack this novel open, you won't be able to close it!"--Jeremy Robinson, NYT Bestselling author of Tribe and The Others
  • "The Roach dives into the psyche of a vigilante like I've never seen before. Captivating! I couldn't put it down."--Matthew Medney, CEO of Heavy Metal Magazine
  • "A grim but riveting deconstructed superhero tale."--Kirkus Reviews
  • "A masterful blend of thriller, mystery, and dark comedy."--San Francisco Book Review
  • "The Roach is an unlikely, and at times unhinged, hero who is someone the working class can both empathize with, and cheer on as he continues to fight regardless of the obstacles thrown in his way."--Colin F. Barnes, Bestselling author of the Codebreakers Series
  • "Sparked by Bruno's precise prose, sparkling dialogue, and the chemistry between Reese and Laura, The Roach is one of the year's best thrillers."
  • "A dyed in the wool, no-holds-barred, old-school vigilante. Absolutely badass!"--Jeffery H. Haskell, author of Arsenal
  • "It's rare that a novel leaves you glued to your seat, wanting to read it again, but The Roach is certainly one of them..."--Book Viral
