MEET JOE VENN. THE OMEGA DOG.





Joe Venn is down on his luck. A Marine and police detective lieutenant, he was kicked off the Chicago force for getting a little heavy-handed while cleaning up the streets. Now he’s eking out a living as a private eye in downtown Manhattan, on a road to nowhere.



His life’s about to get a whole lot worse…



When Venn is arrested for a murder he didn’t commit, he’s given a choice.

Track down a missing professor of neurochemistry, in an operation that’s so politically sensitive even the FBI can’t be allowed to touch it.

Or face life in prison.



Dr Beth Colby is having a bad day, too.



She’s used to dealing with death, in her job as a physician at one of New York City’s busiest hospitals. But two people she knows have just died mysteriously in the space of twenty-four hours.

And before the day’s out, Beth herself will become the target of a shocking attack.



Events conspire violently to throw Venn and Beth together, and soon they’re locked into a desperate race against time to uncover the secret of Professor Lomax’s disappearance.



What’s the connection with the research he’s conducting into groundbreaking neuromodulatory drugs?



And why are Venn and Beth being hunted by not one but two professional assassins – as well as by the most powerful organized crime family in New York?



As the chase spreads from Manhattan to New England and back again, and the net closes relentlessly in on Venn and Beth, each of them must use their unique set of skills to the maximum.

Not just to uncover the terrible secret so many people are desperate to keep hidden.

But also simply to stay alive…



Relentless in its action, terrifying in its suspense, and riddled with twist upon shocking twist, OMEGA DOG is a heartstopping rollercoaster ride that will thrill and chill you in equal measure.



OMEGA DOG is the first book in the bestselling Joe Venn crime thriller series.



Tim Stevens is the author of the highly acclaimed thrillers RATCATCHER, DELIVERING CALIBAN, JOKERMAN, SEVERANCE KILL and ANNIHILATION MYTHS.

Format: Kindle Edition
Tim Stevens's OMEGA DOG is a fine beginning to a series it might be worth perusing. His protagonist, Joseph Venn, ex-Marine, ex-cop turned PI, is still one of the good guys, and as this series opens, he's up against a whole pack of bad guys from the usual suspects wearing expensive Italian suits, to some he thinks he should be able to trust, but soon learns he can't. As he struggles to protect a woman who doesn't want his protection, but needs it, he must also unravel the mystery of who wants her dead, and why. The ending leaves the protagonist and antagonist in positions to take up where they left off. This is a well-plotted book marred only by the publisher's use of British dialogue formatting, using single quotes as opposed to double, which at times makes it difficult for a North American reader to follow who, if anyone, is speaking. Those single quotes are easy to miss. Also, the author seems not to understand the basic difference between the words "farther" and "further". He switches spelling styles in the word "kidnaped" and "kidnapped" instead of choosing one and being consistent, all errors easily corrected, but which drop the book from a 5-star category to a 4-star, at least for this reader.

Pretty good for a first in a series book. I didn't find editing, grammerical, spelling or language issues to be any annoyance whatsoever as some reviewers did. Unless, of course, they are often, blatantly obvious and downright distracting, which this book's aren't. I'm according a 4 star due to the way the book ends. A coerced confession that ties up absolutely every conceivable issue is just a little bit much. The book, however, is very entertaining and certainly an absorbing read. I really enjoyed it.

Nonstop action and intrigue. A secret blackops project needs to be terminated, along with all its participants. Joe Venn is blackmailed to find the missing scientist in charge of the study.

They messed with the wrong people.

Action, characters and story caught me right from the start. Detailed descriptions of characters and settings are vivid, easily springing into the mind's eye. An enjoyable, fun read with enough plot twists to keep things interesting from beginning to end.

This was my first Tim Stevens book and I'm impressed! I found it intriguing, exciting and all around enjoyable. I will definitely read the other books in the series and add Tim to the list of authors I read.

Fantastic plot! Character development was ok- considering the length. I would really have loved to see this 200 pages longer.....all the makings of a Hollywood movie in this little tale!
