Ben has morphed into a safe person after a violent crime takes his family from him. Reserved, quiet and so in tune with safety that he sells his service as a safety consultant to businesses and corporations. He has settled into a vanilla life, marries another survivor in her own right, becomes father to his new wife's three girls and doesn't see any reason to change. That is, until he receives a piece of communication from an inmate right before death that reveals more than he ever thought he would regarding the loss of his first family. Through twists, surprises and a lot of angst, his life unravels; vengeance is his breath, his blood source and nothing will ever be the same for him.
Doug Richardson is a talented suspense writer who draws the mind's eye into his scenes, his characters. I forgot to breathe in a few places, reading as fast as I could so as to get to what would happen next. Characters are designed in such a way that you will be seeking the good guy, booing the bad guy and trying to figure out where everyone else in the cast fits in.
There was not one part that did not pique my curiosity, let my own mind play out what could possible happen . . . only to be disturbed, delighted with what the author brings next . . . every single time!
Anybody who has a taste for suspense will absolutely enjoy this book. I would love to listen to it on audio book!
