Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

WOW!! What an enthralling, thrilling read! – A Stranger’s Revenge by KJ McGillick

When art law attorney Abigail Clarke is mistaken for the murdered twin sister she never knew existed, will she be able to outwit a man determined to kill every member of her treacherous family.

Thirty years ago, during a thunderstorm, on an isolated street in South Boston, an unidentified two-year-old girl was discovered, abandoned, shot, barely clinging to life. After a thorough investigation, the case was eventually designated to the cold case files until Abigail Clarke, now an astraphobic art law attorney, is mistaken for the murdered twin sister she never knew existed.

What the FBI Art Crime Division cannot determine is if Abigail is an innocent bystander or a co-conspirator in her sister’s art fraud crimes.

Compelled to uncover all her family’s secrets, nothing prepares Abigail for the disastrous meeting with her murderous brother and crime boss father. Her life is irreversibly changed the more she becomes mired in her family’s treachery. She soon finds herself drawn into a game of cat and mouse by the vengeful killer who methodically plans to execute every member of her family, holding each one of them ultimately responsible for the murder of his own family thirty years ago.

My Review:

This story starts with events from the past
A betrayal, a shooting, things happening so fast.
Thirty years later, what occurred back then
Is going to impact on folks lives once again.

Art law attorney, Abigail Clarke, is shocked to discover
She and a murder victim look just like each other.
This leads her to decide to look into
To who her biological family is and what they do.

This story is filled with great characters and mystery,
A twisting exploration into the present and history.
What happened in the past is impacting somehow
As someone seeks revenge on her real family now.

Can the killer be caught before he kills any more?
Who can Abigail trust as she tries the past to explore?
With secrets, revelations and twists galore
This enthralling read keeps you wanting to know more!

If suspense filled thrillers are your kind of read
This is definitely the book that you really need.
It is filled with family dramas, mystery and revenge, too,
Keeping you guessing and surprised all the way through.

For my complementary copy of this book, I say thank you,
I throughly enjoyed reading it and this is my honest review.
