Review of ‘Ricochet’ by Keri Lake



The only sure way to destroy a man is to take what he cannot live without.

Three years ago, I had everything.

A beautiful wife.
A son.
A reason for living.

Until a ruthless task force, assembled under Mayor Michael Culling, with a brutal strategy to make the streets of Detroit ‘safe’, ripped away everything I loved in a deadly hunt called The Culling.

They tried to kill me, too. I wish they had. Now I’m cursed by the memories of that night, and the words I whispered to my dying wife.

A promise—to avenge the wrong and set it right.

I’m no longer Nick Ryder. I’m a masked vigilante. Faceless. Loveless. Fearless. A man with nothing left to lose—one who’s seen the dark and violent truth behind the city’s flawless veneer.

Michael Culling doesn’t know who I am. Or what I want. All he knows is that I’ve kidnapped his beautiful wife.

An eye for an eye—isn’t that how the saying goes? And Aubree Culling is the perfect pawn to destroy him.

If she doesn’t destroy me first.


Wow! This book was something else! I have read plenty of Suspense books, but this one stood out to me the most.

In one devastating instant, Nick witnessed the brutal murder of his entire family. He has harbored an intense rage over the last three years. Now, his only purpose in life is bringing vengeance to the men responsible for his family’s slaughter. It has taken time. It has taken meticulous planning. It has taken an exorbitant amount of patience, but finally, Nick is closer than ever to carrying out his objective.

Despite his methodical scheming, things don’t turn out exactly how Nick envisioned they would. He, soon, finds himself battling more than just an organized group of criminals…

This novel blew me away! It has plenty of action and suspense so it never became tedious or slow. It didn’t take long for me to form an attachment to Nick. His memories of that dreadful night are hard to read at times. There is a big twist that I never even saw coming! It’s rare that a book can surprise me since I’m usually good at predicting endings.

Overall, I highly recommend this book if you want to read a heart-wrenching, action-packed novel that will stay with you for a long time to come! This book officially goes on sale around midnight tonight!

Rating: 5 out of 5 stars!
