FBI agent Frank Castle’s final case ends with a literal bang, when a wannabe weapons smuggler is gunned down during a sting operation. But the dead man isn’t just any punk. He’s the son of Howard Saint, the powerful Florida tycoon whose hot-spot nightclub has made him famous, and whose multimillion-dollar money-laundering business has made him as rich—and as ruthless—as any of his gangster clients.

Saint wants payback—with interest—for his boy’s death. And he gets it, by orchestrating a massacre that claims the lives of Frank Castle’s beloved wife and son—and almost kills Castle. But almost doesn’t count. Now Frank Castle—ex–FBI agent, ex–Special Forces commando, ex-husband and father—is canceling his retirement and starting a new career. One that begins with teaching Howard Saint the ultimate lesson: No evil deed goes unpunished.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Punishment for the reader PLOT OR PREMISE: Frank Castle is ready move to London. He's worked undercover for years for the DEA, now he's ready to take a desk job and spend time with his family. But his last case goes a bit sour and an unknown newbie to crime gets killed along with Castle. But then the newbie turns out to be the son of a big-time gangster who wants revenge on the agent responsible for his dead son. And the agent's family. And anyone who ever loved the agent. So, he exacts revenge but fails to kill the agent. Now the agent, Castle, wants revenge from beyond the grave. . WHAT I LIKED: I liked the premise, and as this is a novelization based on the film, a lot of the description is very visual. The pace moves along well and there is little time to worry about not enough stuff happening. . WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: Neither the writing nor the story is first-rate. It moves along, from cliché to cliché and there are lots of reasons en route to just stop reading. I didn't and I kind of regret that as I don't think this is a series I'll follow. Love the character of Castle, hate this version. . DISCLOSURE: I received no compensation, not even a free copy, in exchange for this review. I am not personal friends with the author, nor do I follow him on social media.
