Travis Mays starts a new life and a new career, teaching criminology at the university and building a cabin in the idyllic Idaho Mountains. He hires a beautiful river guide, Jessie White Eagle from the Nez Perce tribe, to steer him safely through raging whitewater, only to find that this trip changes everything—for Travis, for Jessie, and for those they hold dear. In the shadows lurks a man—calling himself Creasy—driven to make sure Travis pay for past sins.
This fast-paced thriller takes readers on a wild ride down Idaho’s whitewater rivers, along the historic Lolo Trails once tread by the Nez Perce nation, and onto the city streets of California. Tighten your helmet. This ride never stops until the last shot is fired and the final body falls.
Revenge is definitely my type of read, I really enjoy the good guy, bad guy stories with a twist. So when I started reading this novel I was hooked and it made it a little difficult to do all of the other things I needed to do.
Travis, a former cop, just can’t seem to escape from his past. An innocent woman is killed and he is blamed though he was not the only man on the team that night. Guilt follows him as he attempts to create a new life as a professor and in his new cabin out of the city. But somehow his past follows him and it will get revenge for what Travis did.
All of the characters are well-developed and never seem to stray from that profile. I really enjoyed their interactions, whether it be negative or positive, all of the relationships were set and strong.
The story was full, well detailed and filled with plenty of twists making it very difficult to put down. It is obvious that Mark Young has plenty of experience in the field in which he writes making it even more enjoyable. Revenge was one of the most enjoyable novels that I have read in a while that is not written by one of my listed favorite authors, now Mark Young has made that list.
