The children want revenge. Tech-savvy victims of abuse unite to turn their collective pain into bloody retribution. The group calls itself K.A.R.M.A: Kids Against Rape, Murder and Abuse. To ensure the group’s message is heard, K.A.R.M.A’s leader enlists the aid of Tom Hackett, a rebellious freelance photojournalist who flaunts his willingness to break the rules for that perfect moneymaking shot. By tipping Hackett to the location of fresh kill, the group ensures sensational front-page media play. But when the identity of the first victim hits too close to home, K.A.R.M.A awakens a haunted past that could destroy everything Tom holds dear. In struggling with his conscience, Tom becomes an obstacle that K.A.R.M.A can’t allow to live.

Here are the first reader reviews from Amazon UK:
“A fantastic read, was gripped from the beginning. Grant McKenzie is fast becoming one of my favourite authors. Would highly recommend this book. A+++++” – mpala67
“Grant McKenzie scores a hat trick with his third book K.A.R.M.A. A story of injustice against innocent children being put right. As with Grant’s first two books this third has the same short chapters that leave you needing to read just one more,then another,then another. Grant McKenzie just gets better and better he is a top author and now one of my favourites. His books all come highly recommended.” – C. P. Garfield (Worcester, England)
“A great read couldn’t put it down, certainly becoming one of my favourite authors also. look forward to the next book!!!” – godz79
“Being an avid bookworm it takes a lot for a book to become my kind of A list and Grant McKenzie has attained that with this novel, His previous novels, including SWITCH, attain this standard, the stories are fresh, riveting and unique. Grant McKenzie should be up there with Harlan Coben and Linwood Barclay two of my all time favourites. The story instantly grips you and has the quality you long for in a book of not being able to put it down. The storyline is gritty, it has a mystery quality and something rare in murder/mystery, a sense of compassion.” – Jan Erlam

Born in Scotland, living in Canada and writing exciting, fast-paced fiction, I like to wear a toque and kilt with my six-guns. My debut novel, SWITCH, earned fantastic reviews internationally when it was published by Bantam TransWorld UK, in translation in Germany by Heyne, and in Canada by Penguin. In 2011, it was translated into Complex Chinese for Spring International Publishers of Taiwan and into Russian for AST – the largest publisher in Russia. My second novel, No Cry For Help, was published in the UK by Bantam TransWorld and translated for Germany by Heyne. My short stories have been featured in the First Thrills anthology edited by Lee Child from Tor/Forge, plus Out of the Gutter and Spinetingler magazines, and my first screenplay won a fellowship at the Praxis Centre for Screenwriting in Vancouver, B.C.

As a journalist, I have worked in virtually every area of the newspaper business from the late-night “Dead Body Beat” at a feisty daily tabloid to senior copy/design editor at two of Canada’s largest broadsheets. In between regular newspaper gigs, I have also contributed technology/humour columns to various magazines around the world. I currently reside in Victoria, British Columbia, where I am Editor-in-Chief of Monday Magazine.
