Breathtaking

This was the best book I have listened to in months. I couldn't stop listening. from beginning to end you were trapped in the story and had to know what happens next. A beautiful tale of sweet vengeance served. As a father of a young daughter I could only imagine the pain they went through. keep the story's going I love everything you have written so far. My favorite story. Excellent book! Almost made me cry a few times had to fight the tears back at work lol. thank you sir!

Law of Retaliation

This book was so good. I highly recommend any books by Jon Athan if you like this genre. He is very creative with the deaths. Keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the book because you know that something is going to happen. Paul D. Henry did a good job with the narration. I received this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I am not a fan of titling reviews..

I had high hopes for this, especially because it seemed to have everything I love in a book & no deal breaker dislikes..I’m all about a story fits perfectly into the suspense/horror/thriller genres but I don’t enjoy the commonly repeated police procedural plot lines..because they’re all too similar in my opinion & call me weird but if I’m not genuinely creeped out or in suspense then I tend to lose interest. So with that said, it’s not an easy task to find books I thoroughly enjoy so I was initially really excited for this one & considering the cost, I decided to purchase it as opposed to using a credit. The story itself wasn’t so bad, I do believe it lost some momentum about mid way through but what really ruined it for me was the narrator..his lack of enthusiasm & inability to truly take on each character’s persona, made it so difficult to listen & actually enjoy! I currently have 43mins left & I honestly have no desire to finish.

I can't imagine the pain of losing a child. Imagine witnessing the murder of your own child. How far would you go for revenge? Especially after the murderer gets found not guilty in court.
Yep, I think we can all agree that a parent would go to extreme lengths to seek revenge.
especially if the murderer is a nazi.
This is what I love about Jon Athan. He hits raw nerves that people can relate to

Emotionally charged

How far would you go to revenge the death of your child. Luckily most won't have to find the answer themselves.

Paul D. Henry's performance is fantastic.

Great

it's a brutal and compelling read. Definitely not for the faint hearted, with depravity, violence and gore although it's not gratuitous. A great exploration of what humans are capable of when pushed to breaking point. Will read more from this author.

One of the best books I’ve read in a long time

After being targeted by a bunch of racist things are going to a lake cabin Ryan and Alexa swear revenge for the death of their five-year-old daughter Lucia. Only to find out at the breaking in the leaders parents home that the parents neo-Nazis as well and there’s more people there than they bargained for. This book and the resolution to the problem with our original and so well thought out I loved it. I thought the narrator did a good job. I just wish they would have explained why the neo-Nazis were targeting them it wasn’t until the middle of the book I found out that Lucia and Alexa were Spanish. The narrator I thought did an outstanding job and I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves the underdog winning the day and the bad guys getting what they deserve. This book just proves when it all comes down to it we’re all monsters.
