Book Description

Wealthy Colombian coffee-grower/rancher, Alejandro Calwel, leaves his wife and young son home when he goes to New York on a routine business trip.

He receives an emergency phone call. His wife is missing. Alejandro returns home to learn all the evidence points to her drowning rather than a kidnapping.  No ransom demand has been made 

But days later, a brutal assault on the Calwel ranch is carried out by a ruthless drug lord and his Miami accomplice - decimating the household. Only Alejandro's young son and nanny manage to escape the carnage and hide in the jungle.

But Calwel survives the savage violence. He needs to find his son, ferret out who is after him, who has betrayed him and - learn the truth about what happened to his wife.

The power of love, friendship, and the thirst for survival sustain Alejandro. But so does Retribution. 

Complex plot twists & compelling characters give readers a shot of adrenaline in this fast-paced thriller - taking them into an explosive climax. 

For mature audience, graphic violence and profanity

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I hope you enjoy reading my debut novel as much as I enjoyed writing it. The experience of writing a book is unique. It requires serious investigation to provide a suitable background to the theme of the story and there's no better way to do that than to visit the places the story teller includes in it. I'm presently working on the second book of this series.

For a first-time author, Mr. Reyes has written a first-class novel. It will have you turning pages to find out what happens to Alejandro and the fate of his family. Can't wait to read the second book on the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars A thrilling thriller April 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The characters in this book are very well developed and described in great detail, as is the entire setting, which draws you right into the very centre of the story. The novel is full of surprising twists and the author manages to keep the tale suspense-packed throughout; it is almost impossible to put the book down.

A thriller that is truly thrilling - can't wait for the second book to come out!

His career in international finance allowed him to travel extensively throughout Latin America and live in several Latin America countries. He acquired a profound admiration for the cultural richness of the Americas, its struggles, its victories, its people.
A near fatal encounter with the big C changed his outlook on mortality and with a second chance at life, he decided to pursue a lifelong dream. With his wife's support and encouragement he began writing. The fictional story; "Justified Retribution" is the first of a three book series.
