Series: The Dead Trilogy #1
Tom Starks has spent the three years since his wife's murder struggling to single-handedly raise their daughter, Julie, while haunted by memories of his dead spouse. When he learns that the man accused of her murder, Chris Taylor, has been released from prison, Tom hires a pair of hit men to get his revenge. But when the hit men botch the assassination, Tom is inadvertently pulled into their violent world. And now those hit men are after him and his daughter.
I really did like how E.A. Aymar made us understand more of Tom through Edmundo in the Count of Monte Cristo. Tom isn’t a big, fuzzy-feely guy so pointing out bits of the story with his students reflected back on him and his predicament. Tom struggles to find himself and in doing so puts a lot of people in danger and a lot of things in perspective. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not all doom and gloom. There are ironically funny moments and witty dialogue that adds to the dark humour and keeps the characters interesting.
