But he’s in a race against time with less than a day to unravel the mystery. Still reeling from a personal tragedy Mac isn’t afraid of pain. Hot on his heels is tenacious Detective Inspector Rio Wray. Double-crossed and in the line of fire, Mac has to swim through a sea of lies to get to the truth.
But only Mac knows he’s been living a double life. Can he be sure he doesn’t have the blood of a dead woman on his hands?
I’ve had this book sat on my kindle for way too long. This is another author who I’ve heard lots of great things about so knew I needed to bump it up my to be read pile. Having finished it, I am so glad I did and have to say I agree with all the good things that everyone else has said.
This is one action packed and fast moving story. It is actually shouting out to be made into a film. From the harrowing beginning to the explosive ending, I literally lapped every page up whilst enjoying this nail biting read.
Mac is a great protagonist and I instantly took to him. He really gets the reader routing for him, willing him to unravel the mess he has found himself in whilst avenging the death of Elena. There are also some very tender moments when it comes to Stevie and Milos that made my eyes fill up more than a few times.
Vendetta is a great introduction to a new author to me. With each page, I didn’t know what to expect next. It definitely had me on the edge of my seat as there are so many hair raising moments and some unexpected surprises in store. An exhilarating and gripping thriller that will have you hanging on for dear life!
