Although this is a quick book to read it is an enjoyable story. It is a story of tragedy and pain, but also one of hope and redemption. Initially I found the characters a little difficult to care about but as the book progressed I found that I grew to like them and was rooting for them to succeed. The story moves along fairly quickly although it is not an on the edge of your seat type crime book. This, however, is not a problem as it is not intended to be this way. The storyline is good with a strong plot and the resolution of the story is good. It is definitely one I would recommend. The only reason I have given four stars rather than five is that I feel that this is a series which will continue to grow and develop. I think the characters and their motivations will become stronger.

I downloaded this and the follow up in the series when they were free but didn't like this enough to finish it or to give the 2nd a go. The characters as well as the whole premise of the book was unbelievable. The fact that people who didn't even know Sarah would get involved and be willing to commit crimes across continents, the 'reprisals' that started before they even did anything other than talk about vengeance etc.
The story just didn't flow in my opinion, it had a jerky and overly simplistic style - would not recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Team of Unlikey Characters and a Bookmobile 11 May 2013
By Reader & Reviewer Barb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Really enjoyed this short novel. It's only 12 chapters, but the author has packed so much into those 12 long chapters. An unlikely team acts like the A Team. If you're a librarian or know one, you'll love this novel and how a bookmobile was used in it. Love, loss, heartache, pain, and a love-hate relationship with God spirals throughout the book, but it ends with love for God and a lesson in life about how when we're hurt the deepest, good can still come out of it because the Lord works in mysterious ways. A librarian, a wheelchair-bound excon, and a computer tech make up a team of the most unlikey characters you'd ever expect to work in the way they did. Tex is in a wheelchair, but he doesn't act like it. Liz is a huggy librarian who is smart and talented when it comes to research. Besides that, she knows people the team needs. Chris is the computer tech who is in love with Sarah and about to be married. His whole life changes in a split second. Who is Angela? Is she with the FBI? Chris suspects she's setting them up since it's like someone knows their every move. On top of that, someone is getting in his apartment without forcing entry. He hasn't given anyone a key. Will this unlikely team of characters be able to solve the puzzle, or will their love for adventure and mystery leave them with regrets? I highly recommend this novel, especially for those who enjoy short books and series. If you enjoy this one, there is another waiting, but unlike some of those where you have to read the next book to find a solution to the conflict in the first, this one has a resolution even though it's part of a series. That's the kind I like. I hate it when a book leaves you wondering, and you have to wait for the next one to find out what happened. I love a good cliffhanger as much as the next person, but not for the original conflict. A nice hint is enough for me to want to find out what happens to the characters next or to minor characters in the first book. I highly recommend this novel. You'll love huggy librarian Liz.

2.0 out of 5 stars Preposterous, ridiculous 27 Aug. 2015
By ChristianReader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book requires a willing suspension of disbelief. It is completely preposterous. The "squad" comes to the conclusion that the good guys (or they may be the bad guys) are setting them up to find the clues for them. Of course these good/bad guys are sending them directly to the exact location to find the clues, so they must have already known. The amateurs come to the crime scene after it has been thoroughly searched by the experts and find the key evidence. The computer nerd picks up a gun and manages marksmanship that is nearly superhuman. No explanation given for the mysterious contacts who fund everything and anything apparently with no questions asked. I expected "Tex" to actually be a superhero and his unseen wife secretly Wonder Woman or Super Girl. The good (or is he a bad guy) keeps popping in to the apartment because he has a key and the resident asks his landlord to change the lock but it never gets done. It is just dumb. Sadly, I think the author could possibly write a good story but needs to take a reality pill before trying again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and Fun With A Message Of Hope For Those Grieving The Loss Of A Loved One. 1 Aug. 2014
By Peter Younghusband - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I had this book on my To Be Read shelf since April 2012. It was only earlier this year when the sequel, The Vengeance Squad Goes To England, became free on Amazon, that I felt it was about time I read this first one. Then, a few months later, the author discovered my blog and contacted me requesting me to review these two books.

It was the cover that drew me to investigate what this book was about. The man in the wheelchair. I had not read a book with a character in a wheelchair and with my wife suddenly in a wheelchair herself due to a chronic disease, my interest was doubly piqued. I was intrigued how someone with a disability was going to be able to avoid the danger of finding these killers. At the end of the novel Frost more than satisfied my curiosity in this area. I am not a great fan of murder mysteries, but this plot was different to others whose blurbs I had read.

This is one very easy read and very entertaining. Frost says this about his novels,

"I would hope that readers would walk away with a feeling of joy in having read my books. After all, the main goal is entertainment. If some other meaning comes through, it is often unintended."

Having said that, there is also a message of dealing with grief and learning to trust God in such circumstances. From an interview involving this author, I discovered that Frost had experienced the loss of his wife to cancer. Frost says of this,

"My second novel, The Vengeance Squad, is about grieving. It was written after my wife died from pancreatic cancer. I experienced the same feelings the fictional character did when his fiancé was murdered during a robbery. Or, should I say he experienced my feelings."

I admire Frost for this, as it really does add credibility to this part of the plot. This would be the take home message in this novel and I pray that any reader who has had or having trouble dealing with grief will find comfort and hope that God is still with them and is there to comfort and restore them and be a stronger, wiser and better person for allowing them to come to terms and be healed from the tragedy of losing a loved one and become more like Him in the process. I must confess, I can identify with Chris' reactions having lost a loved one many years ago and I can say from this that Frost has dealt with this topic very well in this novel.

From reading about Frost from another interview, I found it interesting Frosts' journey becoming an author resulting in his first book, Where Love Once Lived. I have not read this one yet, but reading The Vengeance Squad, I can see that the end result of his journey is one well written and constructed novel and he showcases his talent and creativity well as a new author. Just goes to show that it is never too late to follow one's dreams once God gets hold of it and it is left in His control. I encourage any reader to read this interview; it gives a good insight into this author and knowing some of any author's background enhances the reader's experience and appreciation of their novels.

Frost has created some very relational characters, from the lovable, grandmother type in Liz Siedo, head librarian, from the street smart ex-con, Percy "Tex" Thompson, to the tough and mysterious Angela, who claims to be an FBI agent. Rather an eclectic group, but who work well together in searching for Sarah's killers. Each has different and diverse talents or occupational expertise that when combined, are very successful in not only finding the killers, but thwarting their end game to kill the POTUS. While their methods are not depicted as action packed or fast paced with unseen twists and turns that you expect from more involved and complex plot structure, the methods used by The Vengeance Squad reflect their individual expertise and fits in very well with the general pace and flavour of this novel with its sub-plots of Chris' grief and Tex's continued quest to better himself from his past and his estrangement from his parents.

I became very fond of all of these characters. Liz makes me laugh the way she wants to hug everyone whether they want it, need it or expect it. Tex is very enthusiastic about using his talents and darker side of his life experience on the streets as an ex-con to educate Chris and prepare him to avenge the death of Sarah. Angela adds an element of mystery while offering the Squad her expertise, but not confirming which side she is on or whether she is an FBI agent, but proves to be one very tough and reliable Squad member and invaluable to them at the end. And speaking of the end, there is evidence of an attraction between Chris and Angela and I rejoiced here as this showed that Chris was coming to terms with his grief and learning to live again.

I also loved the element of the supernatural with the visit of an angel in the guise of a prison chaplain that provided Chris with just what he needed to be reconciled to God and to get his grief in the correct perspective, so he could "let go and let God" to quote familiar Christian jargon. Although a very short account in this novel, it was very effective in adding a touch of tenderness to Chris realising his need for God and that he had been wrong in blaming God for Sarah's demise and abandoning his faith. From this point on, the novel is strengthened with Chris' newly restored relationship and forms a pivotal point in the action and pace of the novel increasing until the very satisfying end where all the loose ends are wrapped up, but with an obvious tie in to the sequel.

I am glad I discovered this novel and author Sidney W. Frost. I am looking forward to reading the sequel, The Vengeance Squad Goes To England. I have decided also to read his other two novels, and I very rarely read in the romance genre, Christian based or otherwise, but if I let the influence of the reviews from these two novels have their affect, I am in for a treat!

Highly Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Super Thriller by Sid Frost 24 May 2012
By ibjoy1953 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The Vengeance Squad by Sidney Frost

Chris McCowan watches his fiancé die after being shot while checking out a helicopter crash site. Chris decides he is taking Vengeance into his own hands and strikes out to find Sara's killer. If Sara has to die, her killer doesn't deserve to live.

Chris finds help from a handicap ex-con and ex-marine living in a wheelchair, a granny-type librarian and Chris, thus called "The Vengeance Squad." With a mission to accomplish, these three start off on a journey that will change their lives forever.

Wow, author Sidney Frost gives us an action-packed, fast-pace thriller that will keep you on the end of your seats and your nose in the pages until the very last word. The cast of characters are real and believable and play their roles well as the story comes alive in front of our eyes. There are many twists and turns in this really great story that will keep you turning those pages until the very last one.

The one main thing I appreciate about this book is the way the author uses the characters to show how God can work in our lives when we give him the chance. Even though it is not always easy to let go and let God have His way in our lives, He knows what is best. And I felt that Sidney Frost so wonderfully teaches us that in this book.
I thoroughly enjoyed "The Vengeance Squad" and look forward to more books by this author.

If you like thrillers, well this is a must for you! I really can't say enough about how well written and how awesome this story is, so just go grab a copy of see what you think! I don't think you will be disappointed at all!

The author, Sidney Frost provided a copy of this book for me to read and review. I was not required or expected to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine only.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Read 24 Jun. 2012
By Lou Ann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
THE VENGEANCE SQUAD was a fun read. The main character has lost his fiancée in a terrorist attack. His main thought, understandably, is to "kill those guys." He starts out on his quest and gets deeper and deeper into federal intelligence and other worlds--some that he wishes he hadn't gotten into. He is constantly trying to figure out who he can trust, yet needing to trust the people he doubts. You'll have to read the rest for yourself.

I liked the guy in the wheelchair. He is realistic. I have quite a few friends who are disabled in some way, and this rang very true to me.

The main character grows and changes, and I liked the way his Christian values are dealt with. I also liked the way the author treated the theme of vengeance.

I loved the hugger and the spy, both fun characters. The spy who gets killed is also interesting.

Are you ready to read this yet? A fun book! It's not a literary masterpiece, but if you're looking for an entertaining book that has action, intrigue, and some good characters, this is it.
