An 'eye for an eye' progresses into a hard-core reality in this superbly-written crime revenge thriller. Debut author, Robert Enright, delivers a powerful, edge-of-your-seat read with peaks and lulls in just the right places. This author is off to a pretty incredible start in his career with this first novel.
Seldom do I feel such a strong level of emotional involvement in a fictional tale where I'm still thinking of the characters and their stories days after finishing a book, and experience an ultra-heightened sense of loss. I believe they call it a 'book hangover' in book reviewers circles. But this one just did it for me. I felt every bit of pain and anger Lucas Cole felt. Knowing his style of vigilante justice is wrong didn't matter. I rooted for him anyway. And all the other characters in the novel are full of depth as their own backgrounds and stories are unveiled in a truly skillful manner.
Throughout the entire experience, I kept thinking how this book would make an amazing movie. Hopefully, the author has some knowledge of how to make this happen because it undoubtedly would be a blockbuster with the right casting. I imagine the role of Lucas would be a very coveted one as well.
Excellent read and I can't recommend it high enough! Hope to hear more from this extremely talented author soon.
