I absolutely fell head over heels for Detective Rick Burns. He is the
nice guy, the stand-up brother, the son who tries to live up to his
Dad's expectations. He tries to play by the rules and it's starting to
wear on him. His life starts to unravel when a slew of unsolved murders
takes over Indianapolis. The work of a serial killer, all of the victims
are violent domestic abusers. A small, sickly boy shows up and seems to
be the key Detective Burns needs to unlock the killer's identity. The
only problem is that Burns is drawn deeper and deeper into the mystery
surrounding the boy and his link to the murders themselves. Something
evil is afoot and Burns seems to be losing the battle- not only of
solving the murder, but also with his own personal demons. Bennington
is a master storyteller of thrillers! This book hooked me in right at
the start, and it was a very long night- since there was no way to put
it down until it was good and finished. He kept the suspense and pace
just right; enough to give the reader ample time to mull things over,
but then wham! Something else would come up that would throw you in a
whole new direction. I loved it! Without giving it away, the ending was
superb and totally unexpected! I actually gasped out loud a time or two
(earning odd looks from my spouse). The characters are very realistic
and easy to empathize with as they draw you into not only the current
case but also into their lives. I found myself aching for Stella and
Rick and the promises made. Bennington does an exceptional job
balancing the detective with the personal in this novel. I came away
satisfied with the outcome of the mystery and emotionally weary from
Burns' personal story. Well done! If you like work by authors such as
Dean Koontz, James Patterson, or Lisa Jackson, you'll find Jeff
Benninton's Twisted Vengeance right up your alley! *I received a free

A must read!
A twisted tale to be sure, with no idea where exactly it's going to end up. I found it full of people I might have known in my line of work. Believable characters with depth and a good read overall. Looking forward to seeing more of his work!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
