The Black Pelican by Vadim Babenko
Vadim Babenko is a Russian National Bestseller novelist with three books;
Semmant, A Simple Soul and The Black Pelican. I absolutely love a suspenseful thriller novel and this is exactly what Babenko delivers. Why pick up this thriller? It is about action, danger, suspense and murder. I loved the adventure the author takes the reader on in the city of M. Personally, M should have been a name like "mystic" or "maniac," anything but M. That was the only thing I did not like about this enticing thriller. Your imagination will take you on a journey and out of your comfort zone.
The main character is “Vitus” whom plans his revenge against the world and ends up in the city of M. His secret plan is to kill his longtime enemy, Julian. He cannot find him.
Quote from the book, "All at once, a feeling of melancholy rose up in me. It was like realizing that coming here had been pointless – there was no road for me and no hope of finding what I sought." This book will take you places which will make you turn the page to want to know what will happen next.
A little about Vadim Babenko, he is a Russian scientist with a PhD from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, a widely recognized leader in the field of artificial intelligence, an entrepreneur in high-tech development, Vadim Babenko closed the door on his past achievements to fulfill his desire to write.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

They fear it more than death, they desire it above all else - those who are able to imagine it in their dreams. It's a myth that is no myth. It's a quest that must be undertaken. It is the Black Pelican. When Vitus, driven to the brink by devastating blows, plans his revenge against the entire world, he cannot even imagine what he is getting into. He hits the road and arrives in the strangest of places, the mysterious, rumor-shrouded city of M., to implement his secret plan to kill his longtime enemy, Julian. However, once there, his search for Julian proves futile. Trapped in a complicated muddle, he makes a desperate move, joining a group of fortune-hunting strangers. Together, they delve deep into the ocean dunes that are home to the most fearsome of legends... To his shock, the legend - the Black Pelican - turns out to be very real. Finally, the world notices Vitus, offering him a chance to demonstrate his potential. Forced to endure fear, pain, and despair, he discovers an unexpected inner fortitude. He suffers defeat - but he also gains victory by insisting on his own terms despite the humiliation and mockery surrounding him.… (more)
