A hit man is haunted by a preacher's dying words: "I forgive you."
Forgiving Solomon Long is a page-turning thriller that combines the drama of King Lear and The Godfather with the adrenaline rush of an action epic directed by John Woo.
Crime boss Frank "Fat Cat" Catalano has dreams of building a legacy in Kansas City--but a coalition of local store owners and clergy have banded together to try to break his stranglehold.
Detective Tom Griggs is determined to bring Fat Cat down, no matter what the cost. Even if that cost is neglecting--and losing--his own wife.
Hit man Solomon Long is flown in from the coast to make sure the locals get the message from Fat Cat. But when one of his kills goes awry, his whole world comes crashing down...
