Revenge is not always best served cold, in fact it can be downright bitter. A brother and sister, Hamish and Heather McKinnon, hunt down a serial sexual predator and mete out their own brand of justice, starting simple and gradually escalating to the ultimate - and beyond. Along the way Hamish begins to suffer a crisis of confidence as the weight of responsiblity to avenge Heather's date rape falls on him. This is not a blood fest, slash 'em up revenge drama with action around every corner. It is subtle and thoughtful, concentrating more on the psychological than the physical effect the pair's actions have on themselves as well as on the recipient. The dialogue is written in an almost conversational manner, almost as if we are eavesdropping, and often includes moments of light heartedness which breaks the tension and demonstrates the very tight bond between the siblings. The final rather inventive revenge carried out by the pair had me squirming and a little frightened, yet ultimately satisfied. Verdict - not your usual revenge thriller. Carefully and thoughtfully constructed with a highly satisfying conclusion. Highly recommended
A brother and sister take the law into their own hands and have a fine old time taking revenge on a sexual predator, until revenge starts to bite back and it's not so much fun any more. A really good read, and some very inventive paybacks. Liked it a lot.
