Synopsis: DISCOVER THE CONTROVERSIAL, EDGE-OF-YOUR-SEAT THRILLER BY NEW CRIME MASTER J.K. FRANKO
What would YOU do? That’s the question racing through the reader’s mind as they get swept up in the heart-pounding thriller Eye for Eye, Book I of The Talion Series by J.K. Franko. Roy Cruise and his wife Susie are still grieving the tragic loss of their daughter when they are approached by another couple with a bizarre Strangers on a Train crisscross-style revenge proposal. Full of compelling twists and turns, dark secrets begin to surface throughout the story, putting the Cruise’s marriage and, eventually, their lives at risk. Cinematic in scope and vividly descriptive, this book is for anyone who ever tried to imagine pulling off the perfect crime. True-to-life investigative interviews dramatically portray how police, lawyers, and witnesses weave a mysterious web of lies and misdirection. Eye for Eye is a fast-paced modern noir, full of surprises, that asks: Are we all capable of murder under the right circumstances?
“With so much on TV about CSI experts and the many ways criminals can get caught, I loved the idea of a character trying to pull off ‘the perfect crime.’ Could they plan a crime, a serious crime like murder, with all the modern investigative technology that’s out there, and get away with it?” Franko says. “I also found the question of moral equivalence – an eye for an eye – worth exploring in relation to violent crimes against women in particular, and timely in this age of #MeToo.”
This Gillian Flynn meets John Grisham crime thriller will have fans begging for the next book in The Talion Series.
About the Author:
J.K. Franko was born and raised in Texas in an atmosphere where what he really wanted to do in life – writing and film – were not considered legitimate jobs. His Cuban-American parents believed there were only three acceptable career paths for a male child: doctor, lawyer, and architect. After a disastrous first year of college pre-Med, he ended up getting a BA in philosophy (not acceptable), then he went to law school (salvaging the family name). Franko did pursue writing along with his legal career, and was recognized on the National Law Journal’s Worth Reading list. He later went back to school where he got an MBA, and later pursued a PhD, crossing the line from well-educated to over-educated around the turn of the century. After some prodding from his wife, Franko turned to writing fiction. He now lives with his wife and children in South Florida with their four dogs and one cat.
