The Victim is an intense crime thriller. This cleverly crafted complex novel kept me guessing until the end with its many twists and turns. I found the characters in this story to be well-drawn and their dialogue realistic. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this intriguing and compelling book.
Attorney Anton Mackey has made it in life. He has a beautiful wife, a healthy baby, fancy cars and an expensive home in a gated community. Anton also has a problem. He carries a dark secret and knows that if it is exposed, he will lose everything dear to him.
Anton’s past comes back to haunt him when Daniella Avery, a battered wife, calls his office to request legal council. Daniella Avery isn’t completely honest with her new attorney. To him, she plays a timid and frightened victim. But, what she is really after, is to use Attorney Anton Mackey as a pawn in a twisted game of revenge.
Eric Matheny is a new author for me. This is the first book that I have read by this talented writer, but it surely won’t be my last.
I received a copy of this book from BOOK PUBLICITY SERVICES in exchange for an honest review.
5 out of 5 stars, Review by Peg Glover
