THE VENDETTA TRIFECTA - The Complete Series
Nine years ago, Claymore Beller tried to do the right thing. It was the last thing he did. In retaliation for his efforts, his mafia bosses laid waste to his family. Only the youngest–Cynthia–came up fighting.
Three years ago, Lee Maxwell made the same error. His wife and daughter paid for his mistake. In a haze of booze and regret, Lee disappeared.
Now, Owen Dunham is following the trail of the ‘Grudge Ninja’–only all his evidence is false and the profilers can’t get their heads around anything except the obvious fact that the Ninja is extracting a deadly revenge for an old wrong.
As the Ninja gets bolder and far more dangerous, Owen is forced to recognize that he hasn’t always made the right decisions–he’s spent far too much time trying to be right. Even as he questions whether bringing in the ninja is the right thing to do, the voice in the back of his head is telling him that it will make his career . . .
Will and Diana Kincaid have left their pasts behind. They’ve even discarded their identities as Sin and Lee, but the past will never leave them.
When the body of mafia leader Ivan Kurev turns up in her district, Diana is forced to take a hard look at how well she has—or hasn’t—covered her tracks. It turns out, no matter what she does, it isn’t good enough. A stronger generation of Kurevs is growing out of the wasteland she left behind and the Kurev sons have a memory that is long . . . and angry.
In the past, the fight and the choices that go with it would have been easy. But now there are friends to protect, a home she doesn’t want to leave, and a boss she likes . . . even if she’s more than a little suspicious of him.
It’s hard to choose sides when Diana can’t even determine what the sides are anymore. She can’t run, she can’t stay and she can’t protect what she fought so hard for, not when a newer, more dangerous breed of assassin waits around every corner . . .
In the middle of the night, two assassins break into a cabin that doesn’t exist on any map. Sin is just quick enough to get away. Lee isn’t.
When he doesn’t show up at any of their checkpoints, Sin is forced to do something she’s never done before: ask for help.
Once again, all signs point to a tactical strike from the Kurevs, still something about this hit feels very personal. Kaspar Kurev has built an empire on loyalty borne of greed and fear. But he’s never come up against anyone like Sin—a lone wolf, willing to shred her enemies bone by bone. Or her brother Nick—a leader whose faithful followers will gladly die for him. Or former FBI agent Owen—struggling with the duality of his own morals.
Each of these unlikely allies is backed into a corner by Kaspar . . . and by each other. Though they won’t go down without a fight, they won’t survive without learning to trust each other.
Can they truly end a rivalry written in decades of blood when each of them has an entirely different definition of justice?
