Three years ago Lew Fonseca quit his job as a process server with the State Attourney's Office in Cook County, Illinois, and drove his rattling Toyota south to escape the memories of his beloved late wife. Headed for Key West, the Toyota broke down in a Dairy Queen parking lot in Sarasota, Florida. Buoyed by the friendship of a few trustworthy souls, Lew settled there, making ends meet by doing some investigative work for local attourneys.

Now, Lew is hired by Carl Sebastian, one of Lew's lawyer's clients, to find his missing wife. Following up on a few leads, Lew finds himself being trailed by a mysterious burly man, and saddled with another missing person case -- this time a runaway teen. With the help of some friends, Lew seems to be getting closer and closer to Melanie -- but will he find her before the unthinkable happens?

Praise for Vengeance

"Staked with vivid characters and plenty of local color... Lew as a real future ahead of him". - The New York Times Book Review

"As always, Kaminsky's sense of place is faultless, and he skillfully captures a parade of lively, credible characters... With an early hook, he grabs readers and takes them on a memorably tumultuous ride of violent dips and turns, careening from Sarasota's most squalid shacks to its richest condos." - Publishers Weekly

"The first episode in a new series by Edgar-winner Kaminsky is a very satisfying, exciting read. ... Readers will be demanding the sequel before they've finished the debut." - Booklist

"Kaminsky pulls of climatic suspense for each [mystery]. The biggest news, though, is his depressed little Lancelot in Levi's, who's worth at least a dozen more installments." - Kirkus Reviews
