What is a disgraced ex-cop to do? Open up a Private Investigator firm, become a gigolo and surf the waves to your heart’s content, of course. In “Vengeance is Now” by Scott D. Roberts, that is what Tate Holloway did anyway and he was doing a darn good job too. He was kicked off the police force for asking all the wrong questions about a case that he thought should not have been closed. The real killer was just waiting in the wings to start his killing spree again and to have his nemesis, Tate, take the fall. It was fail proof, wasn’t it? This story starts with the tragic upbringing of a young boy who is traumatized by his sister’s consistent rapes and their mother’s inability to help herself, let alone her children. They are eventually put into foster care where their lives became even more of a living hell. Who could blame the boy for growing up to be a serial killer with a fetish for eyes? Tate Holloway just had the bad luck to land this case and work for the wrong people.
I am really excited to read the entire series if they are as well written as “Vengeance is Now” was. Throughout this book another story was unfolding that will be the next installment and the author wrote it in so well that I actually thought it was part of this plot. Kudos to you Scott D. Roberts!
