Book Description

FROM USA TODAY AND BARNES & NOBLE #1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR J. ROBERT KENNEDY


Sometimes Life Gives Murder a Second Chance


It was the case that destroyed Detective Justin Shakespeare’s career, beginning a downward spiral of self-loathing and self-destruction lasting half a decade. And today things are only going to get worse. The Widow Rapist is free on a technicality, and it is up to Detective Shakespeare and his partner Amber Trace to find the evidence, five years cold, to put him back in prison before he strikes again.

But Shakespeare and Trace aren’t alone in their desire for justice. The Seven are the survivors, avowed to not let the memories of their loved ones be forgotten. And with the release of the Widow Rapist, they are determined to take justice into their own hands, restoring balance to a flawed system.

At stake is a second chance, a chance at redemption, a chance to salvage a career destroyed, a reputation tarnished, and a life diminished.

A chance brought to Detective Shakespeare whether he wants it or not.

A chance brought to him by The Redeemer.

From USA Today bestselling author J. Robert Kennedy comes the third entry in the acclaimed Detective Shakespeare Mysteries series, The Redeemer, a dark tale exploring the psyches of the serial killer, the victim, and the police, as they all try to achieve the same goals.

Balance. And redemption.


Available Detective Shakespeare Mysteries:


Depraved Difference, Tick Tock, The Redeemer,

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 3rd in the series January 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A must read if you enjoy a good mystery. I recommend reading the first two books in this series prio0r to this the third in the Detective Shakespeare series as he cracks another difficult case. The author makes you want to just keep reading. You are taken on a ride by the author with twists and turns that will challenge. I read all three back to back, since I really enjoyed the first book. A great way to spend a day off. Hope there are more in the Shakespeare series coming. So, get going on the next one Mr. Kennedy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Redemption is a two-way street: January 11, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
If you have read J. Robert Kennedy's first two books in his detective Shakespeare series then this is a must read. If not, this book is a stand alone. However, if you read "Depraved Difference" and "Tick Tock" either before or after this book, little nuances will fall into place for you. This thriller will keep you on the edge of your seat. "The Redeemer" is a totally visual read and you will empathize with the killer's victims as their redemption time nears. Shakespeare is a "human" cop in that he has the same imperfections and frailties in his life as we all do. He is in "over his head" in this mystery and the ending of this novel will be a shocker. This is a great trilogy and I hope Rob has many more Shakespeare adventures coming for us. I loved this book and recommend it to all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great mystery in the Detective Shakespeare series December 30, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Redeemer is a fine sequel to this series. I went straight from Tick Tock to this story. Almost as if I were living in the same time frame as Detective Shakespeare. Kennedy brings the characters closer to the readers, digging deeper into their personal lives. The main characters become more real, including their deeper flaws. The peripheral characters are given more dimension. And we get a new perp, even more psychotic than the previous evil doers in this series.
Kennedy's fluid style is such that these are 'can't put them down' stories. Don't start it late in the evening, because you won't be able to get to bed for a few hours. The author has picked up where Ed McBain/Evan Hunter unfortunately let off. This is the new 87th Precinct series. You don't have to read the earlier Shakespeare stories first, but you'll be glad that you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars My new favorite writer July 22, 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love the way you arrange your story. Often times they (characters) seem to be separate, then all of a sudden, they blend together so quickly that it is seamless and keeps me on track. Always a "surprise" as well.
