Some people can never escape their past.
When the fifteen-year-old daughter of UK munitions dealer, Sir Richard Hawkins vanishes without a trace – the race is on to find her. But Sir Richard and his wife’s worst fears are realised when they receive a video of Hollie, tied to a chair, with a masked man holding a gun to her head.
The ransom demands are simple, pay four million pounds in cash – or they’ll never see their daughter again. DCI Jane Phillips is assigned to the case, and has no idea of who, or what she’s up against. But as the investigation unfolds, it becomes clear Hollie’s kidnapping was the work of a formidable gang – who operate in the shadows and will stop at nothing to get what they want.
As the pressure mounts, can Phillips and the team find Hollie before it’s too late? Or will this investigation signal not only the death of the Major Crimes Unit, but one of her beloved team, as well?
Deadly Vengeance is one cracker of a read and a fantastic addition to this series. Whilst it can be read as a standalone and is easy to follow along, I do encourage you to read the first two books, not only to get the background of its characters, but more because they are both excellent reads!
Deadly Vengeance follows the disappearance of Hollie Hawkins, step-daughter of Sir Richard Hawkins, the UK’s biggest munitions dealer. When a video is sent to her family of her being held a gunpoint demanding a ransom of 4 million pounds, Detective Jane Phillips and her team are assigned to the case. It isn’t long before Jane realises that they are dealing with a ruthless gang that will stop at nothing to get what they want.
While this is a plot that you may have read before, OMJ’s spin on it gives it a freshness that makes you feel you are reading it for the first time. For me, this is what makes it a standout. OMJ takes the story and just runs with it, he injects so much tension, suspense and action throughout, it keeps you on the edge of your seat and furiously flicking through the pages to see how it will all unfold.
Never at any point does OMJ take his foot off the accelerator making for a fast paced thrilling read, that at times I had to put down just to catch my breath! It really does have you caught up in its drama and with such a great cast of characters, to love and to loath, it really does make this such an exciting read.
As always OMJ grabbed my attention through perfectly written prose and he is an author that I now class as a favourite and one who is up there with the best of them in this genre. Whatever he releases, whether it be books in this series or something new, I will always go along for the ride. It was my absolute pleasure to read and review Deadly Vengeance which I highly recommend.
