Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Irene Compton awoke one morning with no husband, no home, and few possessions. What she had left was a group of people who had signed her and her husband's death warrants. Those facts had to be accepted. Letting them get away with it was something she could not, would not accept. Her mood then shifted to revenge.
A thrilling novel awash in betrayal, conflict, revenge, and vigilante justice.

My Impressions: Brutal, betrayal, vigilante justice, extreme revenge, mesmerizing

Main Characters:
Carter A. Johnson – Saint Louis, Missouri, detective.
Kate Menke – Saint Louis, Missouri, detective
Irene Compton – Wife of murdered assassin.


Acceptance First: Revenge Second takes place in the Missouri Ozarks near Table Rock Lake. Two murders are committed at the beginning where the reader learns Robert Compton is a hired assassin. Soon after, Robert is killed when his and Irene's house explodes. Then the real action begins as Irene sets out to learn why her husband was murdered and who was responsible. But the killers aren't satisfied; they want Irene dead too. She thwarts several attacks, and then enlist the services of J&M Investigations. Carter Johnson and Kate Menke and their support staff begin the arduous task of gathering evidence that will lead to the perpetrator of Robert's murder.
But after taking the case, the detective staff is suspicious of Irene's motives. They feel she is withholding information from them that would make their job faster and less expensive.
Get ready for a fast paced, action packed ride as Irene and the detectives are attacked by the criminals they are pursuing. When petite, diminutive Irene suddenly disappears and people begin to die the case takes an unexpected turn.


The editing and sentence structure are outstanding.
Character development is thorough for main and supporting characters.
Details are above adequate to maintain interest.
Thorough research is apparent in the use of firearms and explosives.
The plot is complex and held my interest from the beginning.
The writing style is crisp and fast moving and delves into individual personalities.

I can highly recommend Acceptance First: Revenge Second for hard-core action and crime fans.
