Review by: D. A. Childers on May 26, 2013 :
Visits, by John Phelps, is a well thought-out and entertaining read.

As the story begins, we meet Tony Lansing, who is a bit down about his life as he celebrates his 60th birthday. Tony's never had it good, and has basically been pushed around and bullied all his life. Finally deciding that he's had enough when he gets robbed by a prostitute, he begins a new chapter in his life when he finally stands up for himself. Of course, standing up for himself means killing the prostitute who wronged him.

Once emboldened, however, Tony makes a list of all those who have wronged him over the course of his life, and begins to decide what -- if any -- revenge is necessary upon those unfortunate enough to have made the list. As Tony works his way through the list, however, he continually has near-encounters with an unexpected acquaintance of the prostitute he killed, who Tony suspects is out for some revenge of their own.

Carefully avoiding these encounters, Tony continues to work his way through his list. As he progresses, he learns many new things about some of the people from his past. As Tony works to reconcile some of this new knowledge with the events of his past, a few profound decisions simply must be made.

Going along with Tony as he makes these decisions takes the reader on a fast-paced and exciting ride through a string of events that, though unlikely as they may be, are pieced together in a very logical and entertaining way.

Visits is a thoroughly enjoyable look into one man's life just as he reaches his breaking point.

Review by: Denis OLeary on May 14, 2013 :
An enjoyable, almost plausible, tale of a man's descent from modest salesman to a mad serial killer. The relationship between himself and his first victim was a bit of a stretch, but overall quite a good story.
