THE VENDETTA by Michael Tyler
Reality ain’t pretty.
His extensive history in military and law enforcement gives author Michael Tyler the experience and believability to make his debut novel The Vendetta a realistic and gritty drama about a take-no-prisoners cop on a destructive path of vengeance.
Michael Griffin is a narcotics investigator who gets the job done; the hard way if necessary. Two of his friends turn up dead – one tagged a suicide, the other discarded like yesterday’s garbage, and no one seems to care.
But Griffin cares about his friends, no matter what paths they have chosen in their lives. When the system fails, Griffin opens an unauthorized investigation that plunges him into the murky depths of the underworld. His street-smarts, determination, and don’t-give-a-damn courage keep him alive when he becomes the hunted, but will it be enough to finish what he started?
The Vendetta is entertainment at its finest, combining the best of the mystery, suspense, and police procedural genres. Mary Menzel of AllTheseBooks.com calls The Vendetta “…everything a crime fiction novel should be.”
“I think people like my stories because of their gritty, harsh edges and the ugly realities they dance around--something I hope my readers will enjoy in The Vendetta,” Michael Tyler told BookHuntersBlog.com
Having served in as a US Marine Infantry and Army Special Forces NCO, as well as a narcotics investigator and SWAT member in law enforcement, Michael Tyler knows tough and gritty and projects his experiences onto his stories. Written with an authenticity reminiscent of the groundbreaking, award-winning TV show The Shield, The Vendetta seamlessly blends the harsh, visceral flavor of the street with believable human drama to deliver a stunning debut novel.
