The Victim

Anton Mackay was a brilliant lawyer winning a number of criminal drug related cases. He however had one lingering event of the past that cannot be erased - one in which only he can put an end to. Can he foster up enough willpower to do this and risk losing his family and his lucrative job? Soon he will be forced to take evasive action.

A vehicular accident that could have resulted in two people being rescued, though with serious injuries, turns into murder after the drunk perpetrator (Anton) sets fire the two vehicles involved in the accident. Anton Mackay thought the victims were dead and he wanted to remove any trace of him being at fault. Years later, Anton finds out that the two victims were alive!

This book started off with different scenarios that had the reader somewhat confused as to where this story was heading. However, everything started to fit together from the fourth chapter and after which the action really got started. If I had any negative feedback it would be that too many details were done on characters involved in court cases. This resulted in the reader losing focus on the development of the story. Overall this was a roller coaster thriller with the author playing out the scene really well. The reader can easily visualize the plot throughout.

Book Blurb for The Victim

Anton Mackey is a man with everything. At least, he seems to be on the surface. He has a rising career as a private attorney, a lovely wife, a beautiful daughter; he and his family live in an idyllic neighborhood that most people dream about. Sure, there are troubles that plague this family, the same as any other, but all in all things are looking up. Life is good, and the future is better.

Except Anton has a past, too, and something has been looming, bearing down on him from that history, just waiting for the chance to strike. Soon, everything will change, and the life he’s struggled so hard to build will come crashing down around him.

And the worst part of it all: Anton Mackey has no one to blame but himself.
