The scattered remnants of a disturbed man’s criminal ring turns their sights on the people responsible for his demise in authors Al E. Boy and F. Carod’s “Misadventure Memoirs Book Two: The Tiger’s Tears”.
Misadventures Memoirs’ second installment, The Tiger’s Tears, finds Sofia Hernández and her friend Dale Mathis in Guadalajara, building new lives and new homes with the generous rewards they were given by Tiara Tillman. The dangers and uncertainties of Cancun seem far away. But trouble is brewing. The aggressive nationwide investigations into Martin Tillman’s network of deviants, rapists, and murders results in many old homicide cases being re-opened and re-examined. Not a few careers and lives are ruined in the process. Before the long arm of the law can reach them, very powerful people deem it necessary to seek retribution and revenge on those they hold responsible for Tillman’s death, and the unraveling of their web of evil. Sofia, Mathis, and her family suddenly find themselves the target of the remnants of Tillman’s blackhearted, vengeful gang of miscreants.
The authors really elevate the action and tension in this novel. Building upon the horrors and chills of the first book, the author does a great job of balancing the terrifying criminals hunting down the main cast of characters with an abundance of action and suspense that evoked a sense of cinematic imagery in the author’s writing. The character growth was great in this book and did a wonderful job of naturally developing the bonds and relationships the protagonists had with the rest of the cast of characters, both allies and foes alike.
Yet what really stands out about this book and the whole series from these authors is the tension and atmosphere that they build. The reality of this narrative and how twisted criminal networks like this can, have and will operate around the world is a truly chilling thought, and the author’s ability to dive into this mentality while also providing an entertaining read was nothing short of masterful storytelling.
Haunting, adrenaline-fueled, and engaging, authors Al E. Boy and F. Carod’s “Misadventure Memoirs: The Tiger’s Tears” is a must-read book and a great sequel to one terrifying first adult thriller. With a cliffhanger ending that leaves one character’s fate up in the air and a shocking series of twists and turns that test the protagonists’ resolve time and again, the creepy murders and terrors that arise out of reality make this a gripping criminal thriller to behold.
