The Lucky Man: An Act of Malice is an engrossing novel by Monika R. Martyn, a gripping story. Jack Spencer is an attractive man who also knows how to mess up with beautiful young women. But having an affair with a woman about to marry a best friend is a mistake that comes with dire consequences—even if it is the woman who made the first move. He wakes up in the middle of the Pacific, far from his hotel room, on a canoe. His mother, Myra Spencer, knows something is wrong when her son goes missing, even if people don’t believe that he has completely disappeared. Can she uncover the truth and bring her son home? Meanwhile, Jack is headed for a destiny he never dreamed of; an exotic island where everything seems to be waiting for his arrival.
Wonderfully written characters, a compelling plot, intense action, and plot twists that make for a page-turning adventure — you’ll find them all in The Lucky Man: An Act of Malice. From the moment that Jack wakes up from his stupor and finds himself on a canoe, struggling to recall what happened, the story becomes compelling, and the descriptions of his state of mind, the anxiety, and the abandonment are just gorgeous. The premise is strong and the characters elaborately developed, from Myra to Kai Hale to Jack. I love Monika R. Martyn’s writing and her unique storytelling skills, blending the art of exciting narrative with good dialogue and bringing the psychological turmoil alive through streams of consciousness. This is a novel that will keep anyone awake until the last page is turned.
