3 stories of revenge: a loyal friend hunting for his friend's killers, the emotional battle between a suicidal man and the psychiatrist trying to help him, and a poker player who has to use all his deductive and observational skills to rescue someone important to him before time runs out.
Fans of simple but effective prose and carefully-constructed plotting will relish these three superior stories of revenge, told from very different perspectives; one features a quest to avenge a best friend’s death, and a second, a desperate attempt by a winning gambler to protect a friend being held hostage. The tour de force is a sophisticated account of the deepening relationship between a man thinking of ending his life and his psychologist, which makes their therapy sessions as suspenseful as an action thriller. Well-developed characters and a talent for misdirection are other pluses.
