A GRIPPING PSYCHOLOGICAL THRILLER
In a grimy hospital corridor six years ago, Brad and Lola Fairweather’s baby daughter Daisy, died in her mother’s arms.
Brad blamed the cops that stun-gunned him. Lola still blames the investors that had made them homeless.
Now, with their children Lilly, four, and Jack, eleven, they are trying to rebuild their lives, but find they are the targets of a criminal IRS department, led by the twisted Randall P. Cilcifus. When horrifying new details emerge, the Fairweathers are forced to take the law into their own hands, with devastating consequences.
As the body count rises, Detective Lt. Donatello investigates, but as he searches for the vigilante that the press are calling a hero, Donatello discovers he himself is being framed as the prime suspect.
With the clock ticking, Donatello must unravel a complex web of organized crime, kidnapping and murder, before the hunter becomes the prey.

Hello, I’m Tom Secret,
Like most authors, I began writing because I felt I had a story to tell. However, I pretty soon realized that it wasn’t about me, it’s about you, and what was driving me to re-write scenes again and again, was that I wanted to take you on an emotionally charged journey, that you would find as exciting as you would fulfilling.
I was a property developer to the rich & famous before I began writing. That turned out to be good training, because as you know developing takes a long time. What I hadn’t counted on, was that being a perfectionist developer is a lot easier than being a perfectionist fiction author.
The Charm of Revenge, went through the meat grinder: 6 months of developmental editing with Karl Eglasias (author of Writing for Emotional Impact), two rounds of editing for forensic & CSI accuracy with Jeff Goudeau Forensic Consulting LLC, and half a dozen rounds of editing with Michael Carr (the rock-star of editing, with well over thirty NYT, LA Times & Amazon bestsellers to his credit)
I write in multiple first person, so you get to experience the world through the eyes of each of the story’s main characters, rather than just one. Also, the chapters are short, so the pace doesn’t let up, and you won’t find descriptions of anyone’s socks, or other such meaningless drivel.
A very dear friend told me that reading The Charm of Revenge was like watching a movie. I hope you agree, and that you enjoy the story as much as I enjoyed writing it for you.
