This book was a shorter read than average. It was very fast paced which was nice yet at the same time I was so into the story itself I wanted to know more of the dynamics. I also had a slight problem with a paragraph switching too fast without real warning and would need to reread to make sure I was on the right track. That is the only reason it didn't go 5 stars for me. That being said, it was a gritty book, down and dirty on criminals vs. the law and brother's love. No matter if they are criminals or law abiding citizens. It was a very good book and I really look forward to reading some more of Keith Rommel!

WOW is all I can say I kept reading and the ending was not typical. Lots of action lots of questions to ask ourselves about when is the point when we say enough is enough and just walk away? And when is the time to stand your ground and fight! Very well written the characters were believable and interesting!

A couple of seconds can change the life of many. This book is a true tragedy in every sense of the word. I became so caught up in the book that I found myself in tears as to the hell that so many people suffered because of a small child's innocent action. I could not stop reading until it was finished. Jennifer is in a hurry to get home because her husband Rainer, a doctor and local hero, is being honored this evening, and she wants to make sure everything is perfect for his big night. After finding out she is pregnant, she even decides to keep that a secret until the next day. On her way home, one of her twin daughters undoes the strap on her booster seat, scaring her already anxious mother so much that she pulls out into traffic, does NOT cause an accident - but fuels an already angry "gangster girl", Ruth, into a tirade. Ruth comes over to Jennifer's car, screams and puts a couple of dents in the BMW by kicking it. Thus begins the chain reaction that causes so many people, good and bad, to lose their life, their family and their future. Rainer is called away from the dinner to do emergency surgery on a Police officer who was shot. It turns out that the shooter is connected to Ruth. Rainer has a near fatal car accident that leaves him severely brain damaged. This accident is also connected to someone close to Ruth. Are both incidents a result of what happened earlier that day? When Rainer's brother Glenn, a local police officer, finds out about the connection - he does blame Jennifer, saying, "You killed my brother". This is not the last time these words will be spoken. Sadly, Jennifer becomes so distraught; she kills herself and her unborn baby. It is not until now that they already grieving family finds out Jennifer was pregnant. The book continues to go back and forth from those connected to Ruth and those connected to Rainer. A feud has developed between the two sides, and it is bloodier than the feud between the Hatfield's and the McCoy's. Who will be next? Who will survive? How many different people will say, "You killed my brother"? Read this book and find out. One suggestion, you may want to keep a box of Kleenex handy.

What might have been the exploration of a compelling plot is lost amid under-developed characters and the author’s pontificating on his own point of view rather than the telling a realistic story. It’s a tale filled with mindless havoc, but the demons that drive the characters to take these actions are never revealed. So many things [such as a police officer’s son died despite treatment by the highly-esteemed doctor] are simply tossed into the story and left hanging, as if their mere mention is sufficient to justify their inclusion. There is a consistent lack of realism in many actions, especially with regard to the police officers. They do not draw their weapons and wave them around while speaking with gang members; officers are not asked to surrender their weapons simply because a relative has been gravely injured in an accident. The writing is often off-putting [“Ruth sat on the couch and was sobbing into her hands.”]; several sections are out of order, making readers feel as if a time machine is bouncing them through the pages of this unpleasant, violent tale. Instead of being drawn into the story, readers are sidelined to observe the increasingly annoying action. As soon as they realize where the author is taking his story, the outrageous events become predictable and lose their shock value. Although the horrific, dark ending is, at first, extremely disturbing, by this point the story has descended so far into unreality that the reader no longer cares about any of it.

Engaging characters and descriptive prose come together to make this book very readable. A real page-turner that has you on the edge of your seat, anxiously awaiting the next catastrophe. A cracking read. 4/5 stars. I received a free copy of this book via Librarything in return for an honest review.

Reviewed by Trudi LoPreto for Readers' Favorite You Killed My Brother by Keith Rommel was chock full of mystery, suspense, murder, and twists and turns. Jennifer and her twin daughters are rushing home and are almost in a car accident. The other driver goes crazy, kicking Jennifer’s car, and ranting and raving. A nearby butcher shop owner, who views the entire incident, thoughtfully gives Jennifer the license plate of the other driver in order to report it to the police. This is the start of a chain reaction that will see the good guys battle the thugs of the neighborhood. Jennifer’s husband, Rainer, will also have a car accident later that evening and end up paralyzed; his younger brother, a policeman, and his wife, Stefanie, will also be faced with the consequences of this accident, as will the considerate butcher. The investigating police officers, the gang members, and their families all suffer, too. Keith Rommel has written a suspense story that felt very real and scary.  You Killed My Brother is not your typical good guy wins-bad guy loses book. Everyone in You Killed My Brother is forced to deal with pain and loss. This is not a warm and fuzzy feel-good story, the good guy doesn’t win, and there isn’t a happy ending. It is real life meets fiction in a very good book. You Killed My Brother is a book you will read late into the night. I give it top scores and have added Keith Rommel to my 'not to be missed' authors. You Killed My Brother is a WINNER.
