A Taste of Old Revenge

By BR Stateham

When Abraham Polanski, concentration camp survivor, is found dead at his desk, no one knows who would want to kill the old man.

A family man and pillar of the Jewish community, he seems an unlikely target.

Homicide Detectives Frank Morales and Turner Hahn are long-time partners, having bonded over their love of vintage cars. People on the force – and a reporter named Debra Paulson – are curious as to the source of his wealth, but Hahn’s not talking.

When his grandfather, a man he’s only known about for a short time, comes to town, he becomes involved in the investigation into Abraham Polanski’s death, and Hahn learns more and more about his own family history, and his grandfather’s mysterious past.

As the detectives investigate, they are also investigating the murder of a young convenience store clerk named Tommy Jones, a computer genius who is roommates with the son of a convicted racketeer-turned-businessman.

When signs start pointing to the roommate as Tommy’s killer, Turner and Morales know something is not right. Meanwhile, it seems Polanski might be more than a simple garage mechanic, as the detectives discover they are being followed, the FBI is interested in the case, and Mossad agents and members of the secretive organisation of former Nazis known as Odessa are all suddenly in town.

With hints of Raymond Chandler and John Le Carre, A Taste for Old Revenge is filled with murder, mayhem, plot twists and family secrets that will have readers racing through its pages.

B. R. Stateham is a writer specialising in police-procedurals and fantasy. A Taste For Old Revenge is his first book for Endeavour Press.
