Blurb; The Santa Killer is coming to town… One night less than two weeks before Christmas, a single mother is violently assaulted. It’s a brutal crime at the time of year when there should be goodwill to all. When DI Barton begins his investigation, he’s surprised to find the victim is a woman with nothing to hide and no reason for anyone to hurt her.
A few days later, the mother of the woman attacked rings the police station. Her granddaughter has drawn a shocking picture. It seems she was looking out of the window when her mother was attacked. And when her grandmother asks the young girl who the person with the weapon is, she whispers two words.
The rumours start spreading, and none of the city’s women feel safe – which one of them will be next?
He’s got a list. It’s quite precise. It won’t matter even if you’re nice.

Will Abel’s reign of terror ever end?
Who will live, and who will die?
My Review; Wow. This is a MUST READ! Brilliant. I did not expect any of that. Highly recommend. A well deserved five stars. You need to read this thriller. It will stick with you. I managed to devour this book in less than a day, very fast paced and addictive.
Abel’s Revenge is a one of a kind story, contains short chapters and is told through different characters. I actually started to feel sorry for Dan’s character at times even though part of his situation was self inflicted…
I DID NOT EXPECT THAT OUTCOME AT ALL! Neither will you. It is a true jaw dropper and will leave you shocked! Also ends with a cliffhanger open for the reader to interpret what they think. Seriously gob smacked right now. Very impressed. Will be going into my top 20 of 2018!
Could you forgive murder? What if it was something worse?
A childhood accident robs Vincent of his memories, causing him to become sensitive and anxious around others. His differences attract bullies, and he comes to rely heavily on the support of his family.
After the devastating loss of his parents, a remarkable woman teaches him to embrace life and, little by little, he realises the world is far more forgiving than he imagined. When fragments of his memory return, he begins to unravel his past.
Who was his mother? What kind of a man is his brother, Frank? And why does death surround them?
Fate is cruel. History is dark. Things are not as they seem.
Perhaps he should have stayed at home.
I want to start by saying I loved Ross’s previous book The Boy Inside and looked forward to reading this one with very high expectations. I was not disappointed, yet again another brilliant story! This story is written well, easy to read, fast paced and a very deep thought provoking read. I would highly recommend this story to you all and the previous books by this author. Ross is an upcoming author we all need to keep an eye on in the future and I cannot wait to read more upcoming books by this author. I have nothing to fault with this story, a great read! A well deserved five stars from me.
