Everyone Dies (Karma's Children) by John Dolan

“An obsession with revenge might not be great for your mental health, but at least it’s calorie-free.” Private detective David Braddock is holed-up on the Thai island of Samui plotting the death of Grigory Polzin, the Russian oligarch who ordered the killing of his daughter. Embittered and descending rapidly into alcoholism, the Englishman must find a way to exact his retribution before he completely falls apart. Fate, however, has one final lesson for David Braddock: the dead don’t always stay dead. 'Everyone Dies' is the final book in John Dolan’s 'Karma’s Children' trilogy.

My Review 

“Misery is always uncomfortable around happiness.”
Everyone Dies by John Dolan is the last book in the 'Karma’s Children' Trilogy. This excites me (to get to read it) and also bums me out (there won’t be any new John Dolan books released anytime soon). It’s a mixed bag. I’m elated and sad at the same time. After you read these books, you will understand why.

I’ve loved this series and adore the author’s keen sense on humor, sarcasm and clever use of wordage.
I sure hope this is not the end of David Braddock. Fingers are crossed as I write this! If it is, well I’m not about to tell you in this review. You will have to read for yourself. Enjoy the bumpy ride. I assure you, it’s not a smooth path but that's half the fun. Buckle up! Wear a jacket. And if you are so inclined pour yourself a whisky and light up a Marlboro or two. 

Now that I've reached the end of the road I might have to read this book again as I'm not ready to let go...
