What would YOU do?
What would you do if you got away with murder? Would you stop there? Could you?
Susie and Roy thought that they committed the perfect crime.
Their planning was meticulous. Their execution flawless.
But, there is always a loose end, isn’t there? Always a singing bone.
Now, while enemies multiply and suspicions abound, their perfect world begins to crumble.
The hunters have become the hunted.
Franko knows how to weave many threads into a compelling story. Each of the threads represents a different character and each having a different piece of the overall puzzle.
As with the first novel in this series, the theme is revenge, a terrible task master. The personal dispensing of justice takes on a life of its own. Franko has created a situation where people cannot go to the police. There are people manipulating others with lies and deceit. There are secrets that turn deadly.
Franko is a master at misdirecting. He is also good at revealing the layers of deceit and secrets from the past as the plot progresses. He deftly brings in new characters. Previously unknown, they become essential to the plot.
I am hooked on this series. Franko has done a good job of exploring the psyche of one who craves revenge and those who are willing to deliver it.
My rating: 4/5 stars.
About the Author:
J.K. FRANKO was born and raised in Texas. His Cuban-American parents agreed there were only three acceptable options for a male child: doctor, lawyer, and architect. After a disastrous first year of college pre-Med, he ended up getting a BA in philosophy (not acceptable), then he went to law school (salvaging the family name) and spent many years climbing the big law firm ladder. After ten years, he decided that law and family life weren’t compatible. He went back to school where he got an MBA and pursued a Ph.D. He left law for corporate America, with long stints in Europe and Asia.
His passion was always to be a writer. After publishing a number of non-fiction works, thousands of hours writing, and seven or eight abandoned fictional works over the course of eighteen years, EYE FOR EYE became his first published novel.
J.K. Franko now lives with his wife and children in Florida.
