Rick is trapped in an asylum with a delusional roommate and guards who want to kill him. His one goal: escape and inflict vengeance on the man who put him there, presidential hopeful, General William P. Straker. Unfortunately, no one knows Rick is alive, except for one fifteen-year-old old girl.
Clara Blue is a recent escapee from the Brookhill Children’s Psychiatric residence. She is also now the reluctant leader of an aspiring mercenary group made up of fellow escapees. Clara’s only interest is in freeing her anointed dad from that asylum, if only she had the know-how, or her new allies were willing to help in this task.
Clara’s plan: hire the only other mercenary she knows, Jake Scarberry, the man who spent years as Rick’s mortal enemy. Even if Clara can convince Jake to help, and they succeed, will Rick prove to be the parental figure she envisions? And what happens should he find out the ultimate betrayal Clara committed when she escaped Brookhill?
One of my favorite things about being a book reviewer is learning about new authors. I have read all three Rasner books and it's so exciting to find a fresh author who has the potential to be on the New York Times Bestseller list. Rasner's Revenge is fast-paced, thrilling and downright addictive. Mark's writing is genius and his characters have depth. I highly recommend this book.
