Product Description

SIN AND VENGEANCE

...the book was spellbinding. The plotting is brilliant, and Randy is an exquisite character, an evil genius for the modern age.
--Debra Hamel

C.J. West delivers, from the highly erotic opening scene to the chilling conclusion. Sin & Vengeance is a provocative page-turner brimming with intrigue and heart-pounding suspense.
--Alynn

THE END OF MARKING TIME

... West has brilliantly portrayed a world gone crazy where the rule is there are no rules, or are they.  Crime fiction meets science fiction in this awesome thriller."
--Book Bitch

Powerful, thought provoking and massively entertaining... I loved this book and the way it made me root for someone who I knew I shouldn't like.
--CrimeSquad.com

ADDICTED TO LOVE

This book had me so hooked. I loved the plot ... unique and creative [with]  just the right about of romance, sexuality, thrills, mystery, and just plain crazy ...
--Tiffany Harkleroad, Tiffany's Bookshelf

CJ's latest offering is a blend of the thrillers we come to expect from him and a new touch of romance, actually a little steamier than just any old romance, so I like to call it a "steamy thriller."
--Roxanne


When his knee shatters on the playing field, Charlie Marston is plunged into turmoil. The fallen college superstar joins the family winemaking business, but working alongside his parents is not the future he had planned. He escapes work whenever he can and soon finds a new friend named Randy Black. Randy is part stunt-pilot, part Casanova, and part drunken Pied Piper. Randy introduces Charlie to Deirdre Deudon, the provocative wife of a French farmer. They come together in an ill-conceived stunt that explodes into consequences that chase Charlie and Randy back home to Massachusetts and change Deirdre's life forever. The after-effects of this tragic mistake bind the three of them together and threaten everything they hold dear.

From the Publisher

CJ West is a compelling young writer with a unique voice and a talent for breathing life into even his minor characters. He paints his scenes so vividly that we were proud, but not surprised, when this work was optioned for film. West has created a work so fast-paced and a plot so dynamic that readers are too enthralled to stop and unravel the intricacies on their own. Even when readers finally believe they've got it all figured out, West ends with a flourish of surprises that forces readers to consider the entire work, all the way back to the opening erotic scene.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Explosive Novel June 29 2009
By Toni Osborne TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
This novel is very exciting; it has everything one can wish for in a good thriller: sex, violence, great mystery and a fast paced plot with superbly described effects tantalizing the imagination. To heighten the thrill, Mr West embedded hidden messages, an added stimulant for those up to the challenge of deciphering them.

Right from the start we are plunged into a compelling intrigue that created the foundation for this great story. A threesome sets out for a night of erotic debauch suddenly they are interrupted by an unwanted guest, who later ends up murdered. The story moves on with Charlie Marston, a winemaker in the family business and his new found friend Randy Black, a dare devil and a vindictive man.

As time progresses, Randy leads Charlie into terrifying predicaments that become more exciting and dangerous as time passes. Randy's antics are at first played out in the vineyards of France and eventually lead to the vineyards of Massachusetts.

The narrative is superb; I found my mind roaming in overdrive imagining the special effects such a story would have on the big screen (Hollywood style).

The characters are skilfully drawn creating a love-hate relationship even with the evil Randy; you are left with a sense that we have only discovered a part of this person's character. The author is a master at weaving a perfect blend of intrigue and suspense.

This is one explosive novel....one that kept me on the edge..

5.0 out of 5 stars I had to remember to breathe... May 16 2010
By K. Little - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I picked up a copy of C.J. West's "Sin and Vengeance", and settled in to read it after work. Several hours later, I'd had an evening of twists and turns, vivid characters, and several moments where I found myself reminding myself to breathe.

Charlie, the son of an overbearing business man, and Randy, a free-wheeling man completely unworried about repercussions, are having a threesome with an older lady, Deirdre, in a vacant farmhouse. The death of a character scatters them, but they are brought back together seemingly by fate. The sins of more than one generation come back to haunt them, and the chase is on. I was spellbound by the turn of the pages that tied in tragic past events with current day vengeance. I'm not even sure if I ate dinner that night, as I was so sucked into the book. If you want a dish of adventure, C.J. hands it to you on a platter, and liberally sprinkles twists and turns like a master chef adds eye-catching garnish. No mere parsley on the side here!

Go pick up a copy - you know that you want to!

5.0 out of 5 stars an exciting twisted thriller! May 15 2008
By Susan L. Violette - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book was one of the most exciting I've read in a long time! The characters are complex-especially Randy-and the plot is intricate. I never was able to get one step ahead of Randy and his manipulations. His blinding need for revenge is astounding. The twists and turns in the book keep you on a roller coaster that ends with Charlie coming into his own and finally outwitting Randy. I could not put it down!! I hope the movie makes it to the big screen!

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much narrative, too little action Aug. 31 2011
By tom4416 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really don't understand the "I couldn't put it down" reviews for this book. I put it down, permanently, about halfway through. It just goes on and on and on without much happening to keep the readers attention. While it has good, but not excellent, plot line, it takes forever for it to unfold and even when it does, the story plods along. This is one I was really let down by after all the sterling reviews. The only reason I even gave it a two is that it is one of the best formatted Kindle books I've read - someone took their time with this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A suspense lovers's dream July 1 2012
By Franz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A rising collegiate football star whose wealthy family owns a chain of wineries. What could possibly go wrong in his life? Plenty when C. J. West is the teller of Charlie Marston's tale. With the deft hand of a master, Mr. West weaves a riveting plot with more twists and turns than Lombard Street. From the opening scene when Charlie becomes an unwitting accomplice to murder to a climactic battle of wits against a diabolical mind intent of destroying him and his family, C. J. grabs the reader in a vise grip of mystery and suspense that refuses to release until the final page. I look forward to reading more tales by this author.

3.0 out of 5 stars in between May 1 2012
By Wanda Peters - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In reading the reviews I find myself somewhere in between "I couldn't put it down" and the ones that said it was so boring they couldn't finish it. It is true that it starts out slowly and I thought of deleting it from my kindly several times but I plodded through and was glad I did. Probably about the time one reviewer said he gave up on the book it became much more exciting.

If you have the patience to wait for the action to pick up I would recommend this book.
