What I liked was the way the author gradually built up the romance between the very unconventional hero and the girl on the jury that he initially intends to kill. Kessler handles the transition with masterful skill, really getting inside both characters.
And the showdown with the villain is a psychological tour-de-force!
This is a brilliant thriller telling a story of injustice, arrogance, revenge and guilt. The story describes the efforts of a man to exact revenge from the jurors who convicted his brother of rape and murder. This is a somewhat savage motive, but the jurors are not quite as innocent as one might think, and the vengeance-driven hero is not quite as heartless as he might at first appear.
But as he starts killing off the jurors, he also starts to confront the question of who did commit the crime that his brother was accused - and this starts him on a second quest.
I don't want to give away the ending, but all I will say is that it was quite a surprise - not to mention that proverbial "roller-coast ride" in getting there. It's a cliche I know, but when you read it you'll see what I mean.
I can't wait to read some of his other books - I just hope they liveup to this one.
