|Plot Summary of Rhythm of Revenge|
Twenty two year old Jessica Warner is thought by many to be a spoiled brat, however few of the people who think they know her are aware that the young woman carries a heavy burden from her childhood. It is a burden not easy to bear at this or any age.
The reader is drawn into the tale from the opening pages and is held in Jessica's grasp as tightly as she holds the characters appearing with her in the book. This inaugural mystery by writer Christine Spindler is a ‘can't put it down' read.
The torment felt by Jessica is manifest from the opening pages and the maddened behavior of her antagonist almost overwhelms the reader. The interwoven personal issues played out between the characters lead the reader on a merry chase to discover just who this antagonist may be. Inspector Terry uses his master sleuthing ability to sort out the mystery surrounding Jessica's disappearance.
The complex thriller by this young German native gives the reader a view of the human situation at it worst and best. Her vivid account draws the reader into the tale from the opening page. Characters are innovative, believable and well thought out.
The Rhythm of Revenge offers the reader another glimpse inside the mind of a beset, deranged individual who exploits obsession in a most horrifying manner. The Rhythm of Revenge is a narrative that will seize your interest from the opening page and will clench you tight right on down to the last page. Intensely perceptive and well recommended.
