Review: Vengeance Is Mine

Driven by a traumatic, violent event in his teenage years, Benjamin Tucker, bestselling true crime author, is obsessed with helping authorities solve savage crimes near his home turf of Holly Springs, North Carolina. When a series of decapitated female victims is found in neighboring communities, he is helplessly drawn in to the investigation to help bring the killer to justice. But in a bizarre twist of events, the psychopathic murderer becomes fascinated with Tucker and stalks him, presenting him with unimaginable, grotesque gifts. The hunt for the killer turns personal and Tucker is not sure if he’s become the killer’s idol or his next victim. Vengeance is Mine, a gripping thriller with a healthy dose of droll humor, is a tale of sadistic revenge guaranteed to keep readers on the edge of their seats until the very last page.
--- book description

If you are looking for pure entertainment, Harry James Krebs' Vengeance is Mine (A Benjamin Tucker Mystery) (Peak City Publishing LLC, 2014) is just what the doctor ordered.  Krebs delivers suspense, humor, and interesting, colorful characters in a murder mystery that you won't want to put down.  Despite getting a little muddy at the end,  Vengeance is Mine is a fun read, and I recommend it.

I received a complimentary copy of Vengeance is Mine to facilitate my review.  No other compensation was received.  For full disclosure, see the sidebar.

Chain, Chain, Chain

A shot of my mother's Christmas tree.  I made that red and green construction paper chain when I was a wee little girl of five or six.  That makes it close to 40 years old, folks.  It's holding up better than I am!
