    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
    copy of this book in exchange for an unbiased review

    This book is nothing I thought it would be and that's what makes it incredible. An amazing read and it is crazy that this beautiful work is only 0.99....this author deserves more than that!

    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!
