Crimes against children are most horrific, and when they are carried out by prominent, moneyed citizens, it seems they are not punished as they should be. A Matter of Revenge by Laura Elvebak tells the story of two determined runaways who break into the mansion of a prominent man, and while escaping, one gets shot by the homeowner and the other refuses to say anything. Niki Alexander, former policewoman, and present counselor and children’s advocate steps in to help. The problem is that she is getting little or no cooperation from the victims. Can Niki weave together the facts and expose the crimes being committed when money and politics threaten to keep it quiet and allow a perpetrator to continue on?

This well-written novel will grab readers immediately. The suspense builds throughout, and the twists and turns become frustrating to readers because they parallel what often happens in the real world, and it seems that yet another bad person will get away with terrible crimes against children. The story moves fairly quickly, and will definitely keep most readers on the edge.

Elvebak is an excellent writer, has a good imagination for storytelling, and is able to create viable interesting characters who seem real. This thriller is quite unique, has a surprise ending as all thrillers should, and is recommended for anyone who likes a good thriller. Elvebak is an author to watch, and her subsequent novels will most likely be in demand as this one is.
