    An Impressive Debut Novel by a writer of depth Colorado author Bryan Koepke brings us his debut novel VENGEANCE with a long desire to be a writer coming true. The subject of his novel involves a former aerospace engineer and we can be assured that the facts of that venue of work are accurate in that he works for an aerospace company integrating, testing and launching spacecraft from both the West Coast and the East Coast.

The subject of his novel involves a former aerospace engineer and we can be assured that the facts of that venue of work are accurate in that he works for an aerospace company integrating, testing and launching spacecraft from both the West Coast and the East Coast. Though his early years were spent in Michigan and Oklahoma he now is settled in Colorado, working and participating in activities that apart from flying include hiking, skiing, fishing, riding ATVs (All Terrain Vehicles) as well as motocross (Motocross is a form of motorcycle racing held on enclosed off-road circuits.) - the parenthetical definitions are for those of us not used to such extensive sportsmanship devices. Koepke is what defines `a man's man' and that adds to his propinquity for suspense novels. He also founded and owns Writers Cabin Press, a small publishing company. Reece Culver is a former aerospace engineer now a private investigator who struggles with the mysteries of his father's murder, now a cold case with the law. He encounters Crystal Thomas, a beautiful, seductive yet desperate woman hires him to recover her missing mother. Complicating the investigation and chase which covers the terrain of the Midwest, the involvement of a core of wealthy ring of art thieves, and of course the obligatory romantic inclinations and the slow unveiling of the perpetrator who is responsible for his own father's murder. The pace is like running on a cardio treadmill until the pieces all fall together. For being a debut novel, Bryan Koepke's VENGEANCE manipulates the usual ingredients for a thriller - revenge, betrayal, and redemption - in such a forceful way that once started it is difficult to set the book aside for fear you may forget an occult clue Koepke has just dropped in our psyche. He is a writer of enormous promise.

    Reece Culver is a former aerospace engineer, who is now working as a private investigator. Which of course he is, that is the natural career progression… Okay, so he kind of gets into that line of work because of his own father’s murder, that was never solved, which still torments him. When a woman hires him to help her find her missing mother, he is shocked to find out the person responsible for this, could also be responsible for his father’s death. What are the odds!? I’m kidding, obviously. L Reece Culver is a former aerospace engineer, who is now working as a private investigator.

When a woman hires him to help her find her missing mother, he is shocked to find out the person responsible for this, could also be responsible for his father’s death. What are the odds!? I’m kidding, obviously. Logic jumps aside, I very much enjoyed this thriller. The whole aerospace-engineer-to-private-investigator thing was actually very interesting, and made for a fairly original protagonist. That’s what this book has going for it the most: Characters. Each and every person that we meet is slightly bizarre, and unique, and fairly unforgettable. And it is the wide array of characters that holds this book together, even when the fast paced plot goes a little off the rails at points. The story itself never really broke for me, and I did enjoy it overall, but there were a few clunky parts here and there. Overall, I very much enjoyed this book. While I did think that the plot could have been smoothed out a little here and there, considering this is Bryan Koepke’s first novel, I am optimistic that the next installment in the Reece Culver series will be worth checking out, as well.

    An unlikely private investigator finds himself deeply involved in issues he never thought he’d be involved in – art theft, gambling, murder, romance. This is a thriller that gets personal while stories twist around each other.

The stories intertwine and make this a quite readable thriller.

This is a thriller that gets personal while stories twist around each other. Reece Culver quit his successful aerospace engineering career to become a private investigator with the hopes of finding his father’s killer. The stories intertwine and make this a quite readable thriller. We are introduced to Reece as kind of a loner, living with his dog in a rundown section of town, having a hard time paying the rent. He’s spent the last year unsuccessfully looking for clues to his father’s death. He meets with a new client, Crystal Thomas. Crystal is the classic mysterious woman of few words. Seductive and secretive, Reece is suspicious yet attracted to her. Reece is broke and gladly accepts Crystal’s request to help her find her mother who disappeared years earlier. The story moves across the Midwest. There are some dead end scenes that don’t necessarily add any information to the story but in general this is an entertaining book with several twists. The prose stutters a bit at times, not really finding a steady voice, but overall, it’s easy to read.

    There is a lot going on in this mystery. Almost too many things are compressed into the story. It's not that I had trouble keeping the varied strands in the story separate, it's that I felt the author wove with a very loose hand. It did have the flavor of real life, with starts, stops, jerks and speed ups in the action that we all seem to have. Most of the events in the story represent a detour in our hero's life, as he is a trained engineer, not a detective. The biggest quibble I have with the b There is a lot going on in this mystery.

The biggest quibble I have with the book is the feeling that the reading level was not consistent. I got my copy of the book through Freado in exchange for a review.

    I just finished Vengeance by @bryankoepke_author I would recommend if you're into authors such as David Baldacci and like crime books with lots of baddies, theft, murder and fast moving action. I definitely enjoyed this book and there's lots of surprises along the way. You'll need complete concentration as it does twist and turn so quickly! 👍🏻And if you're like me you'll find yourself routing for the main character Reece Culver and pretty much hating everyone else! #vengeance #bryankoepke #crime I just finished Vengeance by @bryankoepke_author I would recommend if you're into authors such as David Baldacci and like crime books with lots of baddies, theft, murder and fast moving action.

    I enjoyed this mystery thriller novel, it's entertaining bought a smile to my face from time. It reminded me of Cameron Strike series not that I am comparing. The short chapters made it fast paced easy to read. What confused me a bit was, there are too many characters and I had to flip back to see who's who. Other wise, it was a fun read. I would like to thank the author for giving me a copy in exchange of an honest review. I enjoyed this mystery thriller novel, it's entertaining bought a smile to my face from time.

    Multi-faceted, complex plot with the main character trying to discover who killed his father and exact his vengeance. Diverse and interesting cast of characters. Some parts were a bit predictable and I was frustrated with the main character's inability to protect himself in some situations but overall very enjoyable read.

    I loved this book. I have read and reread it and on both occasions, it was nearly impossible to stop reading. I sometimes caught myself holding my breath whilst in the midst of the storyline. A really good read.

    Great Who Done It! A twisting tale full of action. I thought I had it figured out several times only to learn that I had not done so. Put everything away and get ready for a great story.

    This was a fairly enjoyable read, though did not get going as a must read page turner till quite late on, however the style and characters were really good; good book for a long haul trip were you can dip in and out without any anxiety about what happens next.

    I thought I would take a break from reading this book and maybe it would get better, but I am choosing to end the misery. This is not a good book. The initial chapters are hard to follow because the action jumps around, the explanations jump around, and the characters jump around. There are timeline issues and detail consistency issues. At times, the author gets a little preachy with social issues but they have little to do with the storyline. And there are a lot of cliche phrases.

At times, the author gets a little preachy with social issues but they have little to do with the storyline. And there are a lot of cliche phrases. The story takes place in Denver, St. Louis, and Tulsa. Mileage-wise: Denver to Tulsa is 694 miles and Denver to St. Louis is 850 miles. Tulsa to St. Louis is 395 miles. The main character drives these distances, sometimes in a day, within a week's time and manages to also hunt for clues. Sometimes the main character is all of a sudden in one of these cities - no mention of travel or the time it takes to travel. When he is in St. Louis at lunch time, he tells his mom he will be back to Tulsa in plenty of time to take her to dinner. Um, no. The explanation of the main character's backstory appears right away, but it has nothing to do with what was going on in that chapter. It is forced writing to try to develop the character. It didn't work. The central female character is all over the map. First she's a vixen, then she's working for the Department of Colorado's legal team. Next, she's possibly involved with gambling crime. She drinks herself silly when she doesn't get her way, but she's got a lot of money to afford the finer things in life. Oh, and she's attached to her step dad in a very weird way. This is not character depth. This is just confusing. I legitimately made it half way through this book. I had to stop when nothing was making any sense. It's not worth my time, and I'd say it's not worth yours.

    It was ok, I finished it, which I haven't managed with the past 3 books I've read, so it can't have been too bad. I liked Reece Culver, didn't like Crystal at all, found her quite annoying, the storyline was ok, so many characters though, found it hard to know who was who and kept having to go back and check, won't say anything else about that as it may spoil book. Might read more of his books should there be any. It was ok, I finished it, which I haven't managed with the past 3 books I've read, so it can't have been too bad.
