Product Description

About the Author

Bryan Koepke grew up in Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Oklahoma, moving several times with his family. He settled in Arizona and then twenty years ago made his way north to Colorado. A private pilot, former Electrical Engineering Technician, and Aerospace Finance guy, Bryan decided he hadn't had enough careers yet, so he took up novel writing in 2010. He's a fan of too many thriller authors to list here, and enjoys watching television shows like 24, Homeland, Breaking Bad, The Blacklist, and Ray Donovan. Bryan estimates he's seen over 1,000 movies in his lifetime and enjoys studying them, and taking something away from the experience of watching each one. Visit Bryan's website, www.bryankoepke.com, for all his latest book news and for what he's been up too lately. You can also find him on Twitter @bryankoepke for his latest in 140 characters or less. What reviewers have to say about his work: Bryan Koepke writes like he has been doing this for years. His book is so well conceived and written you would think that this is the tenth or twelfth book in a series, but alas it is his first novel. That is so exciting because it means there will be more to come and I look forward to reading his future works. by William D. Curnutt A twisting tale full of action. I thought I had it figured out several times only to learn that I had not done so. Put everything away and get ready for a great story. by Linda Bryan 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. by Grady Harp

It was ok, I finished it, which I haven't managed with the past 3 books I've read, so it can't have been too bad.

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good debut novel 18 April 2014
By Owen Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Reece Culver is a former aerospace engineer, who is now working as a private investigator. Which of course he is, that is the natural career progression… Okay, so he kind of gets into that line of work because of his own father’s murder, that was never solved, which still torments him. When a woman hires him to help her find her missing mother, he is shocked to find out the person responsible for this, could also be responsible for his father’s death. What are the odds!?

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Impressive Debut Novel by a writer of depth 6 April 2014
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Colorado author Bryan Koepke brings us his debut novel VENGEANCE with a long desire to be a writer coming true. The subject of his novel involves a former aerospace engineer and we can be assured that the facts of that venue of work are accurate in that he works for an aerospace company integrating, testing and launching spacecraft from both the West Coast and the East Coast. Though his early years were spent in Michigan and Oklahoma he now is settled in Colorado, working and participating in activities that apart from flying include hiking, skiing, fishing, riding ATVs (All Terrain Vehicles) as well as motocross (Motocross is a form of motorcycle racing held on enclosed off-road circuits.) - the parenthetical definitions are for those of us not used to such extensive sportsmanship devices. Koepke is what defines `a man's man' and that adds to his propinquity for suspense novels. He also founded and owns Writers Cabin Press, a small publishing company.

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

3.0 out of 5 stars A good read 2 May 2014
By shannon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was a good read. Believable characters and a good plot. I only gave it three stars because there were a lot of characters and at times it was hard to keep track of them all. All in all a good book with a good plot.

4.0 out of 5 stars A seductive woman leads PI on search for truth. 28 April 2014
By mountain girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
An unlikely private investigator finds himself deeply involved in issues he never thought he’d be involved in – art theft, gambling, murder, romance. This is a thriller that gets personal while stories twist around each other.

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too long winded... 26 Jun. 2014
By prosenjit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
It starts well enough but soon loses itself. It is too long winded and the sub plots do not connect well together.. Ambitious effort, but it fails to sustain interest...
