Rosie's Avid Readers

Rosie’s Avid readers are people who like reading and have a book to tell us about, they are the voice of a friend who says ” I just read this book….”


Avid Reader’s Thoughts.

Vengeance Wears Black is definitely a man’s thriller. Written with spare prose, but enough to give you a good idea of the characters and their emotions, the book provides lots of action with hardly a pause for breath.  Not to say that a woman reader wouldn’t enjoy it – I certainly did.

It centers on a struggle to control international drug smuggling, prostitution, and money laundering between two rival gangs, one from London and one from Eastern Europe.  An international security company steps in to stop them after one of their own is killed as a bystander.

Book Description.

Jack Calder and his former SAS colleagues at ISP, a specialist security firm, are saved from certain death when an ex-Gurkha is killed smothering a deadly grenade thrown into a lunchtime Chinese restaurant in the West End of London. They learn that murderous turf wars are raging between Asian Triads and Eastern European mobsters vying for control of international fiefdoms of drug smuggling, people trafficking, prostitution and money laundering.

An unexpected visit from the highest levels of international law enforcement offers Jack and the ISP team a means to use their black operations skills to wreak a ruthless retaliation against the drug lords.

Unlikely partners emerge in their onslaught against the gangs as the warring criminal factions threaten an unholy alliance to repel them. The pursuit spins across Europe, Turkey and North Africa before a final reckoning.

  1. I love this cover, Seumus. If a trifle gory. LOL. You are a great supporter of other indie authors so I hope that your books are selling well.


  2. Spare prose, action packed . . . sounds like a master class on how to write a good thriller. Sshhhushh, don’t tell anyone. There’s nothing I like better than to read a good thriller as an antidote to all that romance.
