Review of Vengeance is Mine by Harry James Krebs

Vengeance is Mine (Benjamin Tucker, #1)Vengeance is Mine by Harry James Krebs
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book came to me via a review request and I am so pleased I accepted, I couldn’t put it down. It is an excellent story of Ben Tucker, a crime writer cum journalist, who when he hears of a gruesome murder in his home town, it brings back painful memories of the murder of his first girlfriend years ago, and he feels compelled to offer his services to the police. Then there is a second murder, a serial killer is at large.
Ben has only recently married, and his description: ‘She was high-society money, but I was a mutt,’ sums it up, but he never married Maggie for her money. It was a real love match. His family plead with him not to become involved, it is too dangerous, but the more they become dragged into the serial killer’s clutches, the more determined Ben is to solve the crimes.
The whole family are a lovely believable group of people and the author’s description of Oscar, the family dog, whose two left legs are shorter than his two right ones create welcome lighter moments. As does Ben’s relationship with Lieutenant Netter.
And the ending! Well, I didn’t see that coming. A very clever, well-written story. I understand this is the first in the series. The author has created a great character in Ben Tucker and I look forward to reading more thrillers involving him and his family.
