A veteran crime reporter, Nick Mullins was no stranger to scenes of violence and loss. He was well practiced at keeping tragedy at arm’s length with a professional detachment - until he was forced to face his own tragedy when a drunk driver took the lives of Nick’s wife and one of their two daughters, forever shattering his world. Now, with a nine-year-old to raise on his own, Nick struggles to balance single fatherhood with a career that daily puts him into the dark corners of death and justice. When a convicted murderer is dramatically and publicly gunned down with a single bullet to the head in front of a county jailhouse, Nick is immediately dispatched by his newspaper to cover the story, pressing his old police contacts with his usual mix of subtle charm and brazen questioning. But when he realizes that the victim was the subject of one of his old stories, Nick is drawn into the investigation himself. Before long he’s one step ahead of the cops in the hunt for a cold-blooded killer…a sniper who has a talent for targeting criminals, and who makes it clear that he has his eye on Nick. With his career, family, and life on the line, Nick plays a delicate and potentially deadly game of cat-and-mouse with the police, the Secret Service, and his editors - all of whom are watching Nick’s every move as he fights to find the shooter before he strikes again. A stirring page-turner bristling with an intense, gritty realism and filled with vivid and unforgettable characters, Eye of Vengeance is Jonathon King at his very best.

    " I have enjoyed all the other Jonathon King books but for whatever reason I just couldn't get into this one. Might be my mood or the writing style but I like to be grabbed by the nose by a book and pulled into the story, this one just didn't do it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe O'c | 1/17/2013

    " Very Good; reporter begins to notice that recent sniper victims were all subjects of columns he wrote and works to determine who the sniper is before the next victim "

    " Not as absorbing as the Max Freeman novels, but I did like Nick Mullins. I'd like to see him in a sequel! Definitely worth reading. Great book! "

    " I really liked this book. Jonathon King gives the reader a glimpse into the process of how the news is shaped and delivered and at the same time tells a good story. I enjoyed seeing the obvious struggle between the reporter trying to "get the story" and the police trying to stop the sniper. "

    " An OK, but nothing really special story about a sniper who kills bad people and his relationship with a newspaper crime reporter. "

    " Liked the main character - Nick. His kid was not too obnoxious or cutesy. The writing was good. The ending was, well, unsatisfactory. "

    " I've enjoyed Jonathon King's Max Freeman series but I found this book to be both predictable and disconnected. I'll continue to read his books but this on just couldn't hold my attention. "

    " Oh my goodness I didn't have a book on cd to listen to on the way to work!!!! -- I grabbed this one and found I enjoyed it. If you like mysteries with likable characters I recommend it. "

    " An average detective novel. Good story, good execution. Nothing special. "

    " Jonathon did a lot of research regarding snipers and journalists and he put the two together perfectly in this book. I love the plot and I just can't put it down but continued reading it until the end. "
