My Rating: 5 Stars
As a NC native, the intriguing tag on the front cover drew me in to an exciting world of protagonist, Benjamin Tucker, best- selling true crime author, set in small town of Holly Springs, NC, with this thrilling new series (A Benjamin Tucker Mystery (Volume 1). My relatives are Tuckers, as well, so an immediate connection and a huge fan of the TV series, Castle, which doubled the desire. (Ben can be funny like Castle, as well).
VENGEANCE IS MINE does not disappoint, as you are drawn immediately into this suspenseful drama, keeping you on the edge of your seat from beginning to the end. If you are a fan of Michael Connelly, Karen Robards, Lisa Jackson, or David Baldacci, you will love this author, Harry James Krebs (he will be one to follow for years to come). This is my first read by this author, and so look forward to reading more. (loved the Raleigh-Cary connection, having lived in the area).
Ben, is haunted by his traumatic past, with a drive to seek justice for victims of extreme violence. When a brutal serial killer starts a spree of attacking women, Ben jumps at the chance to dive into the investigation. However, he may get more than he bargained for when the killer targets Ben’s family.
The page-turner, and edge of your seat gripping thriller will keep you reading into the night, with a well written plot and characters with a sense of humor mixed in, (Roberta - love her) action packed, with twists and turns, for an engaging highly dramatic mystery adventure.
Highly recommend and looking forward to reading #2 in the Benjamin Tucker Mystery series to find out what is in store for this dynamic and complex character!
