Noah Milano, son of the most notorious crime boss in Los Angeles, is willing to consider being Pratt’s bodyguard while he is in town. That sort of thing is what Noah does these days as a security specialist. Pratt is supposed to meet with Brady’s parents in the office of psychologist Denny Sturgis. The meeting is supposed to help both sides heal at least somewhat, but Pratt knows many would like to see him dead including Brady’s parents, Martha and Frank Resnick. Milano agrees to be there as his bodyguard in in Redemption: A Noah Milano Novelette.
Also part of this e-book is an excerpt from Triage: A Thriller (Shell Series) as well as synopses for several other Noah Milano series books.
A good compact story, the novelette is very focused on the case with little of Milano’s personal life. While the results of the initial set up are predictable, the rest of the read is not as it blends action, detective work, and twists in a page turning story. Action and detective work at a fast pace was also present in The Death Business: A Noah Milano Novella though in that book readers do get a little more of the background of security specialist Noah Milano. Like that book this read is another good one for fans of hardboiled pulp style stories.

The book is short but since I read it while waiting for a plane it was perfect. I'm hooked on Milano and can't wait to read more.
Noah makes for a distinct protagonist, the son of an LA mob boss who has broken ranks with his father's illegal ways and is nowadays walking his own path, trying hard to keep on the straight and narrow. This came at the behest of his dying mother, and his relationship with her is fleshed out a bit more in this story than in prior tales.
The real strength of this piece, however, is the intriguing premise Vandersteen has established for the case Milano takes on this time around. He finds himself working as a bodyguard for a just-released convict who was sentenced for a heinous crime he committed against another youth when he was just sixteen years old. The man is seeking to meet with the parents of his victim and establish some kind of closure with them for his terrible act of twenty years earlier.
Not surprisingly, things do not go well. Before he can find his own closure with the case, Milano must deal with several plot twists including intimidation, robbery, betrayal, and yet another murder.
Nicely done. Recommended.
