Book Description

Gary Remington, a warrant officer in the British Army Intelligence Corps and a veteran of several wars, obtains a compassionate discharge from the Army to care for his fourteen-year-old daughter, the only surviving member of his family—victims of a hit-and-run driver.

Remington determines to seek justice for the deaths of his wife and son, but soon realises that the only way this can be achieved is to dispense his own kind of wild justice—outside the law. His fateful decision leads him to take on the role of a vengeful vigilante who shows no quarter in executing his brand of justice.

Review comment:

Bryan Marlowe's new novel, "A Kind of WILD Justice" is the absolute epitome of a well constructed page turning unique crime tale. Marlowe's story is refreshingly dissimilar to any criminal yarn ever published. Take note movie producers and directors, "A Kind of WILD Justice" is deficient in nothing.

Review by Tom Slaughter:

This being Bryan Marlowe, it will come as no surprise to his regular readers that the proficient (and prolific) author once again turns his attention to revenge, the "wild justice" of which Francis Bacon originally wrote and whose quotation provides the title for this page-turner.

And Gary Remington is certainly a man with vengeance on his mind - his life, which was fomerly that of a warrant officer in the British Army Intelligence Corps and a veteran of several wars, is thrown into turmoil and devastation when his wife and son are killed by a callous hit-and-run driver, who also leaves Remington's 14-year-old daughter fighting for her life. Granted a compassionate discharge from the Army to care for his remaining flesh and blood, Remington becomes obsessed with finding justice, but quickly learns that he can only dispense his own 'wild justice', namely as a vigilante working outside the law. But will he end up having to dig two graves, as the ancient Chinese saying warns?

Marlowe certainly knows how to make you empathise with and care for his novels' characters - here, Remington emerges as a credibly deperate man, and his search for his prey will remain with you, in this thrilling and in parts brutal tale well told.

The building and repair work carried out by dangerously incompetent and unscrupulous builders, often known as “cowboys,” is widely reported in newspapers and investigations into their nefarious activities make popular and thought-provoking television documentaries. This publicity helps to warn the unwary of the misery, unjustifiable costs and even death that can result by employing unskilled building workers to carry out improvements and, often-unnecessary, repairs to their homes. The cowboy builder will always ask for “cash-up-front” before he starts to work. Later, he will ask for more cash, because he “underestimated the work and material needed to finish the job”. If the householder is unable or unwilling to part with more money, the cowboy will leave the property in such a state that it is an unsafe dwelling. This is the story of two men who take deadly retributive action against cowboy builders.

Readers of Leaving Mercy to Heaven, which introduced Eli (Mac) Murray, an embittered ex-SAS captain and Sarah Shahar, an Israeli Army captain, who joined forces to fight a fanatical terrorist group, in North Africa and the Middle East, might be interested to learn that they are bent on action again.. They are now married, but find they cannot settle down to a humdrum life and are ready and eager to answer a call to arms. This time they are engaged by a powerful British media magnate to take on the task of rescuing his son (a foreign correspondent) and his daughter-in-law, who have been arrested and imprisoned by the Syrian Secret Security Service. Their mission takes them, incognito, to turbulent Syria, where President Bashar al-Assad's tyrannical government is engaged in brutally subduing the dissident populace, who are demonstrating and dying in their attempt to overthrow him and replace his government. As you might expect, the action is very strong, with Mac and Sarah giving covert, but no holds barred, support to the rebels in exchange for their help in freeing the newspaperman and his wife.
