Welcome to the blog tour for A Stranger’s Revenge by K.J. McGillick. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources for the spot on the tour. Read on for more info, and my review.
When art law attorney Abigail Clarke is mistaken for the murdered twin sister she never knew existed, will she be able to outwit a man determined to kill every member of her treacherous family.
Thirty years ago, during a thunderstorm, on an isolated street in South Boston, an unidentified two-year-old girl was discovered, abandoned, shot, barely clinging to life. After a thorough investigation, the case was eventually designated to the cold case files until Abigail Clarke, now an astraphobic art law attorney, is mistaken for the murdered twin sister she never knew existed.
What the FBI Art Crime Division cannot determine is if Abigail is an innocent bystander or a co-conspirator in her sister’s art fraud crimes.
Compelled to uncover all her family’s secrets, nothing prepares Abigail for the disastrous meeting with her murderous brother and crime boss father. Her life is irreversibly changed the more she becomes mired in her family’s treachery. She soon finds herself drawn into a game of cat and mouse by the vengeful killer who methodically plans to execute every member of her family, holding each one of them ultimately responsible for the murder of his own family thirty years ago.
A Stranger’s Revenge by K.J. McGillick is an exciting, fast-paced read. I have been a fan of K.J. McGillick’s work and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on this one. I’m so glad I did because, as per usual, it was great!
I love the idea that there is a bit of romance happening but it isn’t the forefront of the novel. The suspense is. I enjoy a bit of romance, but realistically, the suspense would overtake in real life too, so I loved that. I had a hard time putting this book down because I just couldn’t wait to find out what happened!
The characters are great and the plot was compelling. The overall novel is what I look for when I pick up a thriller. That doesn’t surprise me because this character is fantastic. Don’t miss out!
