This is the first book I’ve read in a long time and it definitely did not disappoint! The main character Roger Grimes is a surprisingly likable character, he is tough yet has a heart. Though he has a shady background, it makes him an even better private investigator- and more relatable human. I found myself unable to put this book down. I absolutely cannot wait for more Grimes books! While reading this, I couldn’t help but see this as a television series, Netflix, perhaps- it would definitely be an awesome watch. -Amazon Review|
“The action is gut wrenching in it’s realism, the characters described so well they get you either mad or give you a hard-on.” –Sons of Spade http://sonsofspade.blogspot.com/

About the Author
Yes my real name is H.A.L. Wagner It is a family name and I’m not the first. If you are reading this than you probably have skimmed my books and know the genres I write in vary. I enjoy crime/mystery and love the possibilities science fiction offers.
My latest vigilante justice series starts with Grimes’ Punishment and now Grimes’ Retribution. Set in Daytona Beach, FL, it tells a neopulp story of Roger Grimes, former thief turned private investigator. He’s on the hunt for a run away teen and quickly uncovers a sex trafficking ring. Instead of just calling it in to the police, he takes matters in his own hands.
