Retribution Dark Justice horrifies with the high level of cruelty and depravity of the despicable acts of the criminals who have (almost) gotten away with their unspeakable crimes. However, by the time The Man's identity is revealed, the author has drawn the reader into believing injustice must indeed be avenged no matter the means of retribution.
added by ThorntonSteve1 | editThe US Review of Books, Linda Mae Wolter
Thornton weaves a splendidly taut page turner that exudes a chilling air of menace, while simultaneously delivering deserved criticism of the criminal justice process. Thornton integrates his views into compelling characters and a suspenseful plot, skillfully avoiding the appearance of badgering the audience with his message.
added by ThorntonSteve1 | editForeword Reviews, Jill Allen
Retribution: Dark Justice, Steve Thornton’s dark debut novel, with its anti-hero, The Man, is well written and generally gripping.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

The justice system is there to protect us, but it often fails. Sometimes those failures are so egregious, so dangerous to those who are least able to protect themselves, that they cannot be allowed to stand. But can these failures be corrected and the innocent kept safe? One man has figured it out and is bringing his own dark form of justice to those that have escaped it. Two detectives, David Felton and John Blanchard, are assigned to investigate what this man leaves behind, and they don't know whether to thank him for ridding the world of scum or hunt him down. When a serial rapist and murderer unleashes his gruesome talents, the two detectives hope their shadowy avenger will save them the trouble of finding the monster. But the clues aren't adding up, and as Felton and Blanchard get closer to the truth, an unbelievable twist in the case makes them question their jobs ...and their role as protectors. A gripping, fast-paced thriller, Retribution delves into the gritty underbelly of crime and exposes the powerful, sometimes obsessive drive to bring the guilty to justice.… (more)
