I liked Reece Culver, didn't like Crystal at all, found her quite annoying, the storyline was ok, so many characters though, found it hard to know who was who and kept having to go back and check, won't say anything else about that as it may spoil book.
Might read more of his books should there be any.

I’m kidding, obviously. Logic jumps aside, I very much enjoyed this thriller. The whole aerospace-engineer-to-private-investigator thing was actually very interesting, and made for a fairly original protagonist. That’s what this book has going for it the most: Characters. Each and every person that we meet is slightly bizarre, and unique, and fairly unforgettable. And it is the wide array of characters that holds this book together, even when the fast paced plot goes a little off the rails at points. The story itself never really broke for me, and I did enjoy it overall, but there were a few clunky parts here and there.
Overall, I very much enjoyed this book. While I did think that the plot could have been smoothed out a little here and there, considering this is Bryan Koepke’s first novel, I am optimistic that the next installment in the Reece Culver series will be worth checking out, as well.
Reece Culver is a former aerospace engineer now a private investigator who struggles with the mysteries of his father's murder, now a cold case with the law. He encounters Crystal Thomas, a beautiful, seductive yet desperate woman hires him to recover her missing mother. Complicating the investigation and chase which covers the terrain of the Midwest, the involvement of a core of wealthy ring of art thieves, and of course the obligatory romantic inclinations and the slow unveiling of the perpetrator who is responsible for his own father's murder. The pace is like running on a cardio treadmill until the pieces all fall together.
For being a debut novel, Bryan Koepke's VENGEANCE manipulates the usual ingredients for a thriller - revenge, betrayal, and redemption - in such a forceful way that once started it is difficult to set the book aside for fear you may forget an occult clue Koepke has just dropped in our psyche. He is a writer of enormous promise. Grady Harp, April 14
Reece Culver quit his successful aerospace engineering career to become a private investigator with the hopes of finding his father’s killer. The stories intertwine and make this a quite readable thriller.
We are introduced to Reece as kind of a loner, living with his dog in a rundown section of town, having a hard time paying the rent. He’s spent the last year unsuccessfully looking for clues to his father’s death.
He meets with a new client, Crystal Thomas. Crystal is the classic mysterious woman of few words. Seductive and secretive, Reece is suspicious yet attracted to her. Reece is broke and gladly accepts Crystal’s request to help her find her mother who disappeared years earlier.
The story moves across the Midwest. There are some dead end scenes that don’t necessarily add any information to the story but in general this is an entertaining book with several twists. The prose stutters a bit at times, not really finding a steady voice, but overall, it’s easy to read.
