Praise For Bentley's Writing

Mayhem is a fitting title to this sequel to ‘Mercy’ which first introduced us to Matt Deal.
While Mercy ended with the drug cartel putting out a contract on the former British detective.

Deal, however, is equally determined to exact his own version of revenge against the cartel for the carnage perpetrated on his family.

So, the scene is set for what becomes a fast-paced tale of mutual revenge and retribution. There’s action aplenty within the pages of a book that at times makes for quite a breathless reading experience.

The author has created a panoply of realistic characters and he makes it easy to cheer for the good guys and despise the quite bloodthirsty criminals.

His background in law enforcement and the legal profession allows him to inject more realism than others who write in the genre.Mayhem will definitely not disappoint, and is well worth a big 5 stars from me.
