Shadows from the past. A brutal murder. This time it's personal.
It takes only one phone call to turn Harry Starke into a monster. It begins when Harry's kid brother is brutally murdered, his body thrown into the murky waters of the Tennessee River. That alone would be enough to set Harry on the warpath, but less than 24 hours after the body is found, Harry finds out there's a bounty on his head, too. $25,000. His answer? Strike first and strike hard. And so it begins. Harry and his army of three must go up against old enemies, but they face almost insurmountable odds when they go looking for retribution.

When I first received, via Audiobook Boom, a complementary copy of Retribution to review, I had not previously read or listened to any in the Harry Starke series. This could have been problematic as many long running series depend upon earlier volumes to build character development and background. And this was number seven! I needn't have worried. Very early in the book, Harry emerged as a fully three dimensional, believable person with all relevant history attached. This was enhanced by Tom Lennon's narration. With his calm, pleasant, somewhat legubrious reading, he became the voice of Starke.
I was also expecting, from the brief accompanying book blurb, an action packed shoot-'em-up pursuit thriller with a vigilante loner out for Vengeance following the death of his brother. Well, partially right. This is certainly a thriller, Harry's brother is murdered and there is a (big) shoot out. But it's far more than that. It is also thoughtful, sometimes emotional. And Starke is not a loner. He has friends ..
This is an above average book, well written, with tension and action, great characters, a fine narration and guns. Lots of guns. I learned some interesting facts about guns. So if you haven't yet met Harry Starke, give this book a try. I doubt you'll be disappointed. If you are familiar with him already, well, you know this will be good.
