Product Description

Product Description

please note that this novel was previously titled "Vengeance has Fangs" it is the same novel just with a different title and cover.

From the bestselling author of "Gated" a UK Horror Chart #4 and "Asylum - 13 Tales of Terror" a UK & US Horror/Anthology Chart #1. "Abra-Cadaver" & "After Darkness Falls 1 & 2"

Praise for "Vengeance Has Fangs" from goodreads.com

"Fast, fun, brutal....." "Excellent Book....." "I recommend it highly....." "Fast paced and entertaining....." " The characters were well developed and the story flowed well....." "Fantastic....." "Definitely a winner....." "I think that it will be a big hit....."

If you have come to this book as you've enjoyed "Gated" or "Asylum" please note that this novel is a very early example of my work. As such I hope that you read it with that in mind and judge it accordingly.

Jimmy "Eyes" Glick and Abraham "Ghost" Jacobs both came through life the hardest of ways. A chilling combination since their orphanage origins, one a fully fledged psychopath and the other a borderline sociopath.

Together they worked for Bennett Drake who ran the criminal underworld of the city of Eagleport. But Jimmy and Ghost were never going to take orders for very long and in the ultimate act of betrayal they seize control of the organisation in a bloody coup.

18 years later they now control the city with razor sharp intelligence and an iron fist. The organised crime empire that they have built over the years has its foundations laid in blood, and pain. Ghost has worked hard to control Jimmy's legendary temper as he attempts to move them into the legitimate business world. Jimmy lives for the limelight and is the figurehead of the company, whilst Ghost is content to lurk in the shadows, but there are problems brewing. Jessica Kyle gave up a promising journalistic career to pursue the illusive story of the man behind the whisper in the king’s ear. She begins a determined pursuit of Abraham "Ghost" Jacobs and won't be deterred despite the obvious dangers.

Suddenly the very building blocks of Jimmy and Ghost's empire are crumbling. As Ghost attempts to understand the threat that has arisen, he suddenly finds himself fighting a war on all fronts. Someone is launching a calculated plan to ruin them; their bank accounts are empty, their properties are all stolen from under them, some employees are disappearing, whilst others are turning on them.

Ghost soon discovers that their organisation is under threat from an enemy far more different and dangerous than anything that they could have ever possibly imagined. His singular purpose in life is complicated by his growing fear that they are not as invincible as he’d always imagined.

As Ghost fights for his life and those around him, he loses his tenuous grip over their kingdom and Jimmy's sanity.

He's about to discover that some betrayals, won't stay buried.

An intelligent horror thriller with depth, that mixes vampires and gangsters and not a “Tween” in sight.

More About the Author

Born in Bath, England in 1974, a self-professed "funny onion", equal parts sport loving jock and comic book geek. I am a lover of horror and character driven stories. I am also an A.S sufferer who took to writing full time two years ago after being forced to give up the day job. Not having come from a literary educational background, I work hard every day to improve as an author and hope that I am succeeding to do so despite being self-taught.

I have a career high position of #5 on Amazon's Horror Author Rank of which I am immensely proud.

"GATED" is a UK Horror Chart #4 best seller
"ASYLUM - 13 TALES OF TERROR" is a US Horror Chart #5 It was also voted #5 on The Horror Novel Review's Top 10 Books of 2013 & is a Readers Favorite 2014 finalist in the Anthology category.
"ABRA-CADAVER" won an Indie Book of the Day award.

I now have nine novels on Amazon, "Asylum - 13 Tales of Terror", "Gated", "Rapture Falls", "Fangsters" and my latest novels "Abra-Cadaver" & a new horror anthology "After Darkness Falls" Volumes One and Two.

I have also just published a sequel to "Gated" called "Gated II: Ravenhill Academy"

New for Summer 2014 is "The Travelling Man"

I am currently proofing a new novel called "The Montague Portrait" while writing "Double Visions"

4.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, thrilling 8 Nov 2012
By Sir Alf
Format:Kindle Edition
Vampires that are vicious, violent and dangerous-Twighlight this ain't, no tween romances here thankfully. Well drawn characters with depth and complications. I thought this intelligent story was well constructed, dark and gripping.

4.0 out of 5 stars great!!!!!!! 28 Oct 2012
By markyt
Format:Kindle Edition
In a genre that has been flogged to death and apparently taken over by teenie romance writers this is a refreshing change and a return to a proper grownup vampire theme that will gladden the hearts and minds of all vampire afficianados. Thrown in some hard bitten city crime and you have the perfect mix for a classic winter read.Fangland

4.0 out of 5 stars Vengeance has Fangs 1 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book. It reminded me of the movie "From Dusk til Dawn" in that it started out as a typical gangster story and ten morphed into a vampire tale.
Bad editing and numerous typos in the kindle edition spoilt it a bit.

I was gifted this book by my wife who thought it would be my kind of thing. Wow, the story takes hard crime fiction and adds a fantastic supernatural element that grabs the reader by the throat (excuse the pun).

The pacing is a little slow to start whilst the author builds the characters background and establishes relationships. The readers patience is however rewarded with a dark, action packed chase through the criminal underworld that won't let go. Drabble also manages to interweave two other stories that help reinforce the characters and the plot whilst actually being great tales in their own right.

The author has an excellent skill at building suspense that gets the heart racing and sets the imagination on fire with images of monsters lurking in the dark.

The main characters in the plot are multi-faceted and manage to draw sympathy and affection from the reader, despite being violent gangsters. This is a rare talent and one wielded effectively by Matt Drabble.

Finally, the book ends with a sweet melancholy that leaves the reader feeling a sense of regret on behalf of all the characters that you've followed on the journey.

I will give this book 4 stars as opposed to five for these two reasons. Firstly, the pacing is a little slow to start with and you do need to trudge through it. However, as I said before, your patience is rewarded. Secondly, I found quite a few technical errors in the text that can distract you from the atmosphere and flow of the book.

If your're into crime fiction and horror, I fully encourage you to give this book a go. I will be looking forward to seeing more from this very talented storyteller.
