“K.A.R.M.A. is one fine piece of work” - Andrew Vachss, New York Times bestselling author

In Seattle, an aging mutual-funds salesman falls prey to the lure of a young boy's flesh;

In New York, a 10-year-old plunges an ice pick into the heart of a street hustler to prove his love for a girl he met on the Internet;

In Chicago, a young girl waits in the rain outside a seedy downtown bar for a man she's never met to stagger home;

In Vancouver, a teenager waits patiently on a deserted rooftop for a signal that one of North America's most notorious murderers is about to walk free.

Tom Hackett, a Seattle-based freelance photojournalist, is always looking for the perfect front-page splash, but when he stumbles into the bloody path of the mysterious group known as K.A.R.M.A., he quickly discovers that its thirst for revenge is unquenchable -- and it won't let anyone get in its way.

From internationally acclaimed thriller writer Grant McKenzie comes a story that will shock and grip you from the first page until the very last.

This is not only a brave story, but a wonderfully told thriller, too. I couldn't put it down even when I wished I could. Great characters and a powerful story.

Brilliant! A real page turner. I read it in one sitting. I had to know what was going to happen. This author is quickly becoming a favorite. I started with his Port Sorrow then I read his Switch. I think K.A.R.M.A. is my favorite.

Very difficult to identify with any character in this story which made the improbable, amoral storyline flall fat. I finished but it was an ordeal.

Good story line but it just never came together for me. Not as good as some of his other books. A skimmer.
