This book is a really good story. I was surprised because those who read suspense novels always think of people like Patterson, Cornwell, Coben, etc. but I got a say this, this guy is pretty darn good. Great dialog, well developed characters and smooth plot. I thought, oh man, 400 pages, but amazingly the read was quick, almost Patterson style with the short chapters, but I have a short attention span, so it worked. I wonder if he has another book coming out soon because I would definitely buy it. Good job Mr. Reighard, whoever you are.
The Reunion Reaper is a very interesting story about a killer who waits for more than 20 years to have his vengeance, and this creates a very intriguing plot. Andrew Keane, a very likeable main character, is new to his position and it shows. He wants to focus on this case, but knowing he is out of his jurisdiction makes it more difficult. Throw in problems that he confronts at his job, at home, and with other characters, Andrew is pretty overwhelmed and wonders if he is capable of figuring all of this out. I don't want to give too much away, do yourself a favor and read this book by a pretty good up and coming author. Oh, and this is addressed to anonymous. If you are reading a book just to look for spelling and editing, then you are reading mainstream fiction for the wrong reasons. Maybe you should set up your own editing business if it means that much to you. As for the story, you will be highly entertained, and for a weekend read that is what I am looking for, not "dangling modifiers", or "run on sentences."
I read about this author in my local paper in an article about his latest book and decided to get this one first. I am more than disappointed in his grammar, usage, and punctuation, given the fact that he teaches English in one of our local schools. If he doesn't know basic standard verb tenses and can't spell, he needs to learn or find an OLD English teacher who did learn those rules. The plot might be great if I can stand to finish it in spite of run-on sentences, strings of adjectives, wordiness, etc. in addition to the other problems!
I first came across this book when someone on a plane sitting next to me was reading it. I liked the cover, even though it looked like one of those self-pub deals. The person told me what she could at that point. She was half way through the book. So I ordered it and I have to say it was a very good story. Yes there have been books about vengeance, but this had some very interesting characters, a well conceived plot, and the author wraps things up very nicely at the end. It was refreshing and I know this sounds weird, but almost like the author was having a conversation with the reader, so yes very readable. You will enjoy this story.
