Today is our fourth installment of our month-long spotlight series of Swaggernaut Authors with Zada Leon (swag name: egyptgoddess) and her thriller Vengeance Is Mine.  We will finish out the month next Friday at 10am with a discussion of Kickshaw Candies by R.K. Finnell.  Checkout our previous discussions with the authors of Are We Walking To Alaska?, Tales of Pixie the Cat: Four Short Stories and The Broken Road.  A big thank you to all the Swaggernauts who submitted their works for inclusion and have taken time out of their busy schedules to come hang out with us.  All of these books are available as Kindle editions in the Swag Store.

Below is a brief synopsis of Vengeance Is Mine.  Please join us in the comments as we discuss this work as well as the writing process and any other questions you may have for egyptgoddess.  I will be choosing 10 random comments and hooking up the users with 25 Swag Bucks each so please join in.

Lead Detective Alexandra Hunter has spent years working her way up the ranks of the ‘boys club” of police detectives in Los Angeles. Working cases is hard enough in the busy Hollywood Division, fighting the resentment and bias of the male detectives assigned under her make her job that much harder.  When a serial killer strikes in the Hollywood area; it falls to Alexandra Hunter and her team to solve the case. Men are being murdered and horribly, sexually mutilated, who appear to have nothing in common other than being similar in appearance and age. The murders are committed brazenly, out in the open, escalating in number, each more horrific than the last. As panic begins to envelope the city, political pressure is brought to bear as the powers that be find themselves under intense scrutiny and pressure by the media and the people they are sworn to protect.

The serial killer is careful, smart and thorough, leaving little evidence, which makes finding this killer a daunting task. Alex and her team race against the clock trying to prevent more deaths as the bodies continue to pile up.  Alex is a striking looking woman with the eyes of a lioness, and she uses her unusual instincts (some have called her a witch) to guide her, Alex fights to motivate her team and work the case. Alexandra and her team finally discover that even hardened cops can be shocked at what they uncover.
