A Lifetime of Vengeance by P.J. Grondin, ISBN: 1-4137-9357-6, PublishAmderica, review by ellen george


The McKinney brothers were bright, handsome, and they didn't have good sense.

They invested in an orange grove in Florida - it had a surprising feature - a bomb shelter built in the event of an attack - The boys' see this covert area - they could put this vault to better use...

They started dealing in illicit drugs, making money hand over fist. Then they started to get greedy - figured if they fudge on the weight of the drug packages by putting filler in them, they'd stretch their supply and get more money. Well that didn't last too long - their 'friends' who did business with them retaliated in horrible fashion - they raped and murdered Mike McKinney's wife of two weeks - even videotaped it! For some reason, which is explained in the book, they are set free.

The McKinneys join the service, get their lives in order, and one, Pat, marries, has a family and all are successful - except Mike - he has never gotten over his wife's murder.

The brothers have planned their vengeance on the men who committed the murder - but something happens - after a while, murders do happen, but the McKinneys aren't the ones systematically killing off the bad guys -

Who is doing this? How did they get the McKinneys' plans?

So lays the foundation for a series, establishing the McKinneys from drug distributors to upright citizens. We come to like them and root them on as they fight to maintain their lives in the face of great tragedy.

Plenty of action, mystery and romance to satisfy every thriller fan, Pete Grondin deftly fulfills every facet to create an excellent book.
