Certainly, many fans of thriller genre are already acquainted with C.W. Lemoine, the Spectre Series’ author. Absolute Vengeance: The Alex Shepherd Story is Lemoine’s seventh book and reading this newest book is like watching a blockbuster. The book is full of actions, tough language, harsh and brutally vivid scenes. So, definitely, neither followers of the Spectre Series nor new readers would be disappointed by reading this page-turner. Although Absolute Vengeance can be read as a standalone book, its plot is connected to the previous six. Moreover, as the author notes in the foreword to the book, the storyline practically follows Stand Against Evil, the sixth book of the Spectre Series, only this time the story is written from a different point of view. It’s written from perspective of a person, who simultaneously is a victim, a witness and a punisher. Writing a supplementary book on the same horrifying and shocking events from a standpoint of a decent man, who was severely and deeply affected by those very gruesome happenings seems to be an appealing and engaging approach.
