A Hero Walks Alone

 
9781503505247: A Hero Walks Alone

Heroes are not made; they're born with the gift of having special powers that many of us only dream about. Wrongly judged not only by authorities but also by his own father, Fabian Barna's life dramatically changes after being wrongly convicted and jailed for a crime he didn't commit before becoming a hero in the Vietnam War. A Hero Walks Alone tells of the hardships the Barna family are forced to endure after being persecuted by the Aconi family, which began as soon as they planted their feet on American soil and continued through to the adulthood. This story takes you through a journey of how (against all odds) the Barna family survived years of torment and Mafia-related incidents, before becoming outstanding citizens. It tells of the transformation of Fabian Barna from once being a mixed-up street kid to becoming a true American hero and how he discovers love and romance in spite of the brutality he witnesses during his growing years. It also reminds us of the ever-growing supply of cocaine and assorted drugs being introduced into our streets and how Special Agent Peter Barna (Fabian's brother) plays his part by introducing new technology to Central Intelligence, routing plans of criminals aspiring to become the next Al Capone. Finally, A Hero Walks Alone tells of the many twists and turns played out by two brothers as Fabian and Peter Barna combine to avenge the death of their murdered parents as they pursue, capture, and eliminate their long time archenemy, Tosawi Aconi, in what can only be described as the most bizarre ending of a person's life.

About the Author:

George Cassar spent most of his life growing up in Surry Hills, Sydney, Australia, after his family migrated from Malta in 1952. Although his interest for writing came late in life, his first project was to write a memoir relating to the lives and times of his family (not for publication) before moving on to writing novels. One of nine siblings born into the Cassar family and having witnessed the difficulties of growing up surrounded by poverty, his attempt in mixing a blend of reality and adding his own touch of fiction, “A Hero Walks Alone” is a book that can relate to each and every one of us. Discovering that he could escape into the fantasy of his own writings and leave behind the many tragic events associated in today's world, George writes about what he truly feels, which is depicted in this novel. Having spent his early years as a graphic artist, his direction soon changed as he pondered if he had the mental capacity required to successfully put pen to paper and create a story that would satisfy the most ardent reader. What George offers up in this book has much to do with what he lived through in the late fifties and sixties, eras which were very much related with Mafia-related events. Combining powerful action, drama, and crime, thrilling twists and turns, and adding a touch of humour and spellbinding characters that will leave you wanting more, not only does his writings offer up a good read, this book reminds us of times that must never again be reinvented. This novel is set in New York, and the characters and dialogue are products of George's imagination and do not portray actual persons or events. Any resemblance to the living or people who have passed is entirely coincidental.
