Overview

One good cop. One part-time hooker. Both dead.

Michael Griffin is a cop. Narcotics. Tough as nails. The man you want at your back when things get bad-the man to avoid if you are bad. His friends have been murdered; one tagged a suicide, the other discarded like yesterday's garbage. But Griffin values his friends, doesn't sort them by race or profession, and he wants justice. True justice. If he can't get it from within the system, he'll take his game out of bounds, rules be damned.

The Vendetta is the story of Griffin's pursuit of renegade criminals responsible for a string of brutal murders. Cops and mobsters, wives and lovers, hookers and dealers-meet them all as Griffin plunges into the murky depths of the underworld. Street-smarts and gut instinct put him on the trail, pure determination keeps him alive when he becomes the hunted, and don't-give-a-damn courage carries him through to the end of his quest.

"Tyler has penned a mystery-thriller masterpiece. It's got it all: drug dealers, the mob, prostitutes, strippers, bikers, murderers, traitors, and a courageous and talented team of street cops?all told with such authenticity, wit, page-turning realism, and edge-of-your seat suspense that it would make you swear the author must have worked the dark streets of this very town as an undercover agent himself. Not for the faint of heart. It's HOT!"

    Awesome book!

    This is a book I usually would not read. I am more into Jane Austen books, but my friends dad wrote this so I thought I would give it a try. I was amazed! The descriptions in the book made me feel like I was right there. Lots of action. Once you start reading it is hard to put down

    Everything crime fiction should be

    In ¿The Vendetta¿ Michael Tyler has given us a front row seat into the world of cops, drugs and violence. In a rural North Carolina town Dave Griffin is a cop taking each day as it comes until a fellow cop and good friend¿s death is ruled a suicide. Griffin knows without a doubt that it was murder and engages in a one man war against those responsible. Michael Tyler¿s experience in law enforcement gives him the ability to write with realism and accurately portray life on the streets. The interaction between the characters in the police squad is reminiscent of the members of Ed McBain¿s 87th Precinct. The language is rough, the violence is gory and the plot is tough and intricate¿. just the way it is in real life. ¿The Vendetta¿ is everything a crime fiction novel should be.

    All I Can Say Is WOW!!

    The Vendetta is an awesome book that kept my attention from the first page to the last! I took it on vacation to Acapulco to read on the beach and by the pool and I think my hubby was mad because I was more into the book than I was him 'and it was our 25th anniversary vacation!'. Seriously...if you like fast pace adventure, non-stop action...at times leaving your heart racing, then this book is for you! An awesome book that leaves me 'begging' for the next one! By the way...when I finished the book, hubby read it and also loved it! He understood why I couldn't put it down!!

    A reviewer

    Reading The Vendetta by Michael Tyler was a very captivating experience. For each page read it seemed one more needed to be read to end the suspense. The author has successfully created what seems to be a true life tale about a cop that believes in keeping his word no matter what it takes nor where it takes him. Michael Griffin, the main character, plays the mean tough cop with lots of heart who, when things get rough, is the one you would want by your side backing you up. Throughout the book up until the last page, Michael Tyler has made it so tantalizing, that most anyone reading the book will want to hear more about Griffin¿s exploits in the near future.
