The Sweet Revenge Files

The Sweet Revenge Files

Will James Mysteries (Volume 3)

It is Christmas Eve, 2018. A bomb explodes in a packed movie theater.  As the First Defenders move through the crime scene making instant life and death decisions, federal investigators pick up numerous clues, fingerprints and even D.N.A., all belonging to a known murderer.  However, it soon becomes crystal clear that this particular criminal could not possibly have been responsible for this crime because he was executed almost eighty years before in the Cañon City, Colorado gas chamber.

In “The Sweet Revenge Files”, the latest in the current series of Will James Mysteries, the resourceful and quick-witted investigator and his crew chase after three different, seemingly unrelated killers, all but obsessed by a need to dramatically settle old scores –

  • A television preacher who claims to be doing God’s work by ridding the land of sinners… transgressors… non believers… but whose real driving force is to enrich herself and settle old scores regardless of the death and destruction left in her wake…
  • An art dealer with a dark and well hidden past as well as all of the resources necessary for getting what he wants regardless of who or what he destroys in the process…
  • A former KGB contract killer on a lifelong search for payback from the person who made it more challenging for him to ever rape another woman after he raped her…

Each of these criminals seems to be willing and able to do whatever it takes to get their revenge even though such an all consuming objective can and does threaten their own survival.

If you think you know how it will all end, guess again.  You will almost certainly be wrong – so very, very wrong – because in a Will James Mystery things are very rarely as they first appear.

You are about to be strapped into a roller coaster with no end in sight.  You will feel as if you are moving in various directions at the very same time but you will refuse to get off until the very end.

“I started off slowly a bit put off with the bomb part which is a part of our everyday reality in today’s world. But the more I read, the more intrigued I was with who, why, will they catch them! I love a good mystery. What a rollercoaster ride! I couldn’t stop reading and when I was finished, I wanted more. Amazing book. Amazing author. So much attention to detail and research. Usually I suspect what’s going to happen or have an idea where a plot is going, but there were so many unexpected turns that I was continuously surprised. It had me talking out loud and to the book. One character I found so antagonizing and when they changed it was a “well finally” moment uttered aloud. I love the pattern of how everyone and everything came together. I did cry at the end so much so that I had to stop reading to wipe my eyes so I could see again. I can’t wait to read the other two books. I highly recommend this book. You won’t be sorry. Thanks Martin. You actually put me on the road to seriously reading again.”…. Teresa Russell (Goodreads)

“Another great mystery. Kept me guessing.
Here once again the story had twists and turns.
I will admit that towards the end I did shed a few tears, I laughed at other parts.
That was telling me the author Martin Herman was doing his job and doing it eight. An author that can make you smile, cry, or feel other emotions in the span of a book or books, is doing his job.”….Karen (Goodreads)
