As Dr. Victoria Ward listens patiently to her clients spilling the horrible, painful stories of domestic violence, she reminisces on her own childhood and the very reason for her chosen profession. She sees her own mother through the eyes of the very women who bare their souls, day after day. And she wonders what makes men do this to the best part of their lives? Who do they think they are? What gives them the right? Rather than speculating on her role in the issue, Victoria takes fate into her own hands, making the matter right. It might be illegal in the eyes of the law, but this has to stop. Death is not good enough. These men must suffer to the point of madness while admitting their ultimate sins. As Victoria investigates her next “client”, she relives every injustice ever served at her father’s hands. No, death is not good enough.
I was beyond angry from page one on. The author shows no restraint in bringing the reader face-to-face with the evil act of physical abuse. Even with the end justifying the means, the rage reflected in this work is palpable. Provocation: Pen Pals and Serial Killers Book 2 by Jo Michaels is a first class tale of spousal abuse and neglect in which the author projects the surprising final twist. The reader is left questioning the happy façade of the couple next door while gaining a new perspective on happily ever after. Provocation is a riveting single sitting read that will haunt one’s dreams long after the final page is turned.
