A first-class comedy mystery thriller with perfect pacing...

I enjoyed the story, character development, and dialogue. There were plenty of plot twists that I didn’t see coming and that added to the book’s mystique. When I stopped reading to work, I found myself wondering what happened in the book, and replaying parts of the novel in my head to see if I could figure more out. It has been a while since I enjoyed a book this much. It’s a first-class comedy mystery thriller with perfect pacing. Not

Andrew Williams has done it again! A relevant and timely story that's a must read for everyone. Though the story is about a good man Jim who finally decides to give it back to his bullies, it is a story that many will be able to relate to.

We're all living in a harsh world were bullies think it's OK to push people who are silent, don't voice out, or don't have the looks or means, and what not. In most cases, they just bully because they want to and find reasons to give!

An ARC copy was received from the publisher.

This is a slow starter with so many variables that it didn't make sense in the beginning. To be honest, I had my doubts and thought to quite by chapter 4. Nevertheless, I continued and by the last page, I am glad I did.

Jim's Revenge is a witty, cleverly planned plot with so many happening at the same time that you get lost in all the details. With this book, details definitely made the story. Each scene another building block cleverly devised till the

This is a mystery thriller that made me wonder and think quite a bit not only about what was going to happen next but also about what would happen to some of the characters. It is an unforgettable story that lingers with you for a while even after you have read the story. It is a story that has breath and depth.

Jim Godwin was a man who tried hard to live a life that was not transparent. He tried to even do the honorable thing from time to time. All he wanted was a part-time job to put a bit o

Revenge is a book best read with a chuckle!

So, after reading A R Williams’ First 2 Arcadia’s Children novels and eagerly awaiting the third I was somewhat surprised when this book appeared on my “because you read” on my kindle.

“Jim’s Revenge” is a pretty far departure from the two previous books. There isn’t a killer mutant space millipede or psychotic robot to be seen anywhere. Instead we get the epic tale of an elderly bloke who gets a part time job making brews for a bunch of office workers.
