Retribution: The Riveting Sequel to Redemption! is written by Stephanie Baldi, and it is full of breathtaking suspense. Carmela Santiago, daughter of Ricardo, founder of a drug and smuggling empire, waited for almost six years before she placed her plans in motion - to exact retribution from the man she was supposed to marry. Nicholas D'Angelo was the trusted hired killer groomed to marry the daughter of his boss but he ends up assassinating the man he used to work for. Now married to Carrie and living in Tuscany, Italy, he wants to leave his past behind, but can he?
Stephanie Baldi's Retribution is the second installment in a series that is all about money, power, murder, deceit, love, and revenge. Baldi weaves a complex story that will surely make it difficult for her readers to put the book down. As the story unravels, the vivid description of Carmela Santiago's character is spellbinding for how does a woman with money, beauty and power seek retribution? The suspense doesn't end there, however, as we get to know the other colorful people in the story. The characters in this novel are well developed with their own flaws and strength, and as such, one can feel some kind of empathy for most of them. And as we follow the plot from California to New York, to Italy and South Dakota, we sometimes have to hold our breath. This is because Stephanie Baldi is a brilliant storyteller who does not leave loose ends undone and she certainly knows how to keep the suspense going up to the very last page!
