Has anyone checked out Tim Smith's new novel, The Vendetta Factor? It's wonderful...I mean -Did Tim actually know some of those New York Mobsters??? The book demands attention from page 1 and has a wonderful twist in the end. You'll love it! You'll be calling your travel agent to book the next flight out to Key Largo!

Every page must be turned...You have to know what happens! I think it would make a great movie! Do you love New York or Florida? You'll love Tim's lastest novel...It won't keep you waiting!

From the first few pages, the book grips you right away. It soon brings you into a complex world of mafia bosses and the people that work for them. One man is caught in the middle of two feuding families. The book is fast paced and well written.
The descriptive passages of the Florida landscape and locales are excellent. The dialogue is well done. The violence is portrayed at just the right level. Overall, gives self-publishing a good name.

Reviewed by Richard R. Blake for Reader Views (5/07)

From the first sentence of the prologue to the last sentence of the epilogue, Tim Smith takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride of plot twists, adventure, and suspense. "The Vendetta Factor" has all the ingredients of mystery, intrigue, romance, and adventure, interlaced with humor and subtle satire.

Nick Seven, former CIA agent, now a club owner in Florida finds himself in the middle of a turf war between the Musante Family and Dominic Ferrone, heir to the Scarletti Family of New York. Ferrone wants to take over the Musante Family control of organized crime in the state of Florida. Justice prosecutor Michael Quinn has a private agenda, for personal power and promotion that adds another level of complication to Nick's dilemma. Aided by his girlfriend Felicia, FBI agent Bob Teague, and Key Largo's sheriff Ted Cain, Nick is drawn into a web of bloodshed, thugs, and ultimate revenge.

"The Vendetta Factor" has great movie potential. Smith is convincing in presenting insights into mafia thinking, their reasoning, their strategy, their motivation, and their lust for revenge, retaliation, and vengeance. The character Crisotto, "the Crease," is described: "His weathered face told the entire story of a man who had lived a dangerous life on the fringe of civilized society."

Smith's characters are realistic. Nick is described this way, "He was never one who liked having to dance to someone else's tune, and when that someone insisted he do so he naturally dug in his heels even harder." Strong dialog keeps the reader on target with the many plot twists and scene changes. Word pictures and imagery of the locale are colorful and authentic. Descriptions of violence and sex are sometimes graphic.

This story was a completely different type of book than I normally read. Definitely outside my comfort zone and I truly enjoyed it. I'm not easily swayed into other genres so, anyone who can make that happen--is an incredible author. Tim Smith has consistent plots, strong characters and an amazing talent for drawing the reader in. I look forward to reading his other books :)
