An enjoyable read after a somewhat rocky start. For me, A Case of Revenge started off a bit slow, with a lot of ‘telling’ of events right off the bat. Even the opening scene that was supposed to be dramatic left me feeling a bit detached and removed from the action. So I worried that I wouldn’t like this book very much, but as the story progressed I found myself becoming fully immersed in this creepy and downright troubling mystery. The element of technology in this novel was unsettling, and it really can be used as a real-world weapon. The characters were unique in their own right, and believable to a point. Overall I can say that despite the rocky start, I ended up enjoying this novel and would recommend to my friends.
Who is The Sorcerer and what game is he/she playing? He’s playing the revenge game, and winning…so far. I was pleasantly surprised in reading this book that the author took chances with his characters and stepped outside the standard norms in creating his villains and victims. Instead of the typical one-dimensional cardboard cut-outs, these characters are fleshed out and real. The fast paced twists and turns kept me on my toes and reading way later than I intended to during a work week. But who needs sleep when you’ve got a great thriller on your hands? Although it felt a bit abrupt, the ending was satisfying and surprising—A definite plus in my opinion. All in all a very good read that will appeal to fans of mystery, crime dramas, and thrillers.
An interesting and frightening twist on the revenge game, this book grabbed me from the opening pages and held me until the heart pounding end! I love it when a book can totally suck me in like that, and it was never predictable of boring. I won’t re-hash the plot (that is what the summary is for), but this is definitely an intelligent thriller with many layers (cyber-crimes, hospital setting, suspense and mystery) that will satisfy almost any reader looking for a well written book that takes you on a mind-bending journey. Great characters (especially Carly) and dialogue. Will be looking for more from this author in the future.
I really liked “A Case for Revenge” by Darryl Bollinger, and read it from beginning to end in one night! It was well-written and easy to read. I liked the character of Carly, and I thought she was likable and smart. The narrative flowed well and it kept me guessing right up until the end. I’m happy that it wasn’t predictable of cliché like so many mystery/thrillers are these days. A must read for fans of the genre. (
