The Big Thrill Recommends: RACE TO REVENGE by Dan Petrosini

Book Cover: Race to RevengeRecommendation by Millie Naylor Hast

Dan Petrosini, prolific USA Today and Amazon bestseller, smashes his latest out of the park with RACE TO REVENGE, the first in his clever new series, Art of Payback. Revenge may be best served cold, but Petrosini turns it upside down with his smart-mouthed main character, Beck, a former investigator raised in an abusive foster home. Beck finds creative ways to exact retribution when the justice system fails.

Beck and his brother-by-another-mother have teamed up to right wrongs. When Tom Petersen asks Beck to avenge the death of his wife, Beck makes no promises but agrees to look into the situation. Marilyn Petersen was killed when drunk driver Brett Caden broadsided her car. Through legal maneuvering, Caden escaped punishment on a technicality.

Suffice it to say, Beck takes us on a roller coaster ride through fine homes and seedy back streets of southwest Florida as he crafts a master plot Caden and his crafty attorney, Puzo, won’t see coming. Along the way, he enlists Larson, an attorney, and O’Leary, a police detective, along with Mario, to help. O’Leary has a special interest: a mobster named Royal is about to get off for assaulting a woman. Soon, Beck is entangled in both cases.

If you want to see what happens next, you’ll have to stay up late. Beck won’t let you go to bed as he devises a way to deliver his form of justice to the bad guys. The main question is, will he get them before they get him?
