Timothy McDougall

Violence

Timothy McDougall's first novel takes us through a maelstrom of emotion, adventure, chaos, and retaliation.  Noel Anderson is a successful average Joe with a vaguely troubled past whose life is ripped apart when violence destroys his family and everything he has worked towards.  A weak justice system, impossible odds, and the short end of the stick seem to greet him at every turn.  As his life is forced to continue whether or not his heart is ready, Noel, finds himself alone, lost, and confused.  Or is he? Detectives following several cases related to the loss of his family seem to think a series of bloody crimes committed years later may be the work of Noel's vigilante justice.  An action packed, breath-stealing ending leaves readers wanting this broken man to find love, happiness, and harmony again.  Find out if he succeeds in Violence.

A fresh book with excellent character development, riveting action scenes that leave very little to the reader's imagination, and attention to detail surrounding every new topic.  This book will be enjoyed by many, but especially the under twenty-five set who look forward to a video-game-style background story come to life. A non-linear timeline would have really made this book outstanding, but overall, and excellent first novel.  Looking forward to more. Three out of five stars!
