Kill Bill meets VI Warshawski in this original first novel by Robert Fate. We follow Kristin Van Dijk in her journey from abused daughter of a traveling poolplayer into avenging angel. Her father is killed by a couple of thugs, she's left for dead, beaten and raped. Slowly she recovers from that trauma and learns the skills to avenge her dad aided by an Army veteran and a private eye.
The action is furious, the setting almost like a spaghetti western. Robert needs little words or pages to get the story on paper, making this an easy and thrilling read. After turning the last page I was happy to know there's a sequel on the racks and another one coming up.
