I should mention the cover I'm showing is not the cover for the edition I read, but I like this cover so much more (the one on my ebook is boring). The Retribution was a Free Friday offer at B&N and the description was too good to pass up, though it is the 7th book in the series. Thankfully, it is more or less a stand alone book.

I really like Carol and Tony and, again, you get to know them really well though it is the 7th book in the series named for them.

The Retribution reminded me of The Line Between Here and Gone (see review) and a much better story than Broken Harbor (see review).  The two murder mystery plots were both engaging. I often find myself wanting more of one story line or other, but that wasn't the case here.

When I picked up The Retribution, I was craving a thriller and this book satisfied that craving. I look forward to picking up the other books in the series.
