Deadly Repercussions by Karen Black is an action novel that follows Juan Velasquez. After losing his dad to a home shooting at 14, Juan was no stranger to violence and vowed to be a provider and protector of his future family. Married at 16 to the love of his life, he did his utmost to keep this promise despite multiple tragedies. The news of a possible snitch within the Federal Bureau of Narcotics, where his son-in-law works, has caught his attention, especially since it means his family is now in danger. After being persistently targeted, Juan will stop at nothing to protect his granddaughter, Elaina, and see that justice is served—on his terms.
Deadly Repercussions is a slow burner, but it gets your blood pumping and heart racing when it picks up. It got to a point where I was reluctant to put it down. My favorite character was Juan, and I loved how responsible he was for his family as they grew and expanded. It was beautiful watching him grow from a teenage orphan to being a father and a grandfather whose family could always count on him, no matter what. The action sequences were so detailed and intense that it was incredibly easy to visualize them. I got so immersed in them that it felt like I was watching scenes from an action movie. I had a few guesses on who the snitch in the Bureau was, but Karen Black still managed to surprise and impress me with the final revelation.
