Publisher's Summary

They won't be victims anymore.

In Seattle, an aging mutual-funds salesman falls prey to the lure of a young boy's flesh; in New York, a 10-year-old plunges an ice pick into the heart of a street hustler to prove his love for a girl he met on the Internet; in Chicago, a young girl waits in the rain outside a seedy downtown bar for a man she's never met to stagger home; in Vancouver, a teenager waits patiently on a deserted rooftop for a signal that one of North America's most notorious murderers is about to walk free.

Tom Hackett, a Seattle-based freelance photojournalist, is always looking for the perfect front-page splash, but when he stumbles into the bloody path of the mysterious group known as K.A.R.M.A., he quickly discovers that its thirst for revenge is unquenchable - and it won't let anyone get in its way.

Any additional comments?

** spoiler alert ** I thought the concept for K.A.R.M.A was interesting. I still think it's interesting. But I couldn't go any farther than Ch. 11. It's not that it's horribly written (well, the dialogue could be better), or littered with grammatical errors, there's just something off about the focus. There's too much emphasis on details that don't need it, and where it could be developed, it's glossed over. I know this is vague, but I don't want to leave too many spoilers for those that this doesn't bother (I admit - I'm particularly picky about what I read) and are reading or would like to read the book. For me, there's also an issue of plausibility. I read fiction. Fiction is fake. But to have a good story, even if it's vampires or faeries or zombies (nothing of that nature in this book, just an example), there has to be an air of plausibility, a hint that this could be happening... some root in something in which the reader is familiar or identifies. I am thinking of a very specific thing, but I can't do this without a bit of a spoiler, so stop reading now if you don't want to know.
