Karma Never Loses An Address
Betrayal on Every Level Marley Bennington had brutally murdered her older sister Samantha in a drug fueled rage. Only two people know that fact as true. One of those two people, was sitting in a state prison, serving a sentence for a crime he didn’t commit. Who was that unfortunate person? Alex Clarke, Samantha Bennington’s husband, the man so buried in circumstantial evidence that he confessed to a crime he didn’t commit, rather than face a trial. He was now trapped with no way out. It all began as sibling rivalry and jealousy, as so many tales of treachery do. Now, that intense jealousy had ended in her sister’s murder. Once Alex was tucked safely away in prison, Marley was set to inherit millions of dollars tainted with her sister’s blood. But suddenly, two obstacles stood in her way preventing her from quickly obtaining the reward for her well executed plan. One obstacle was her brother, and the other a nosy little old lady. But for Marley, this wasn’t a problem. She had killed twice already and cheated the justice system. What were a few more bodies? Justice delayed is justice denied. Can Marley be trapped by the very people she tried to deceive? Will karma finally visit her door? Another gripping, tangled tale from the author of Facing A Twisted Judgment.

It should have given me pause that she thought we could, at some point, be suspended upside down and needed to take notes.Honestly, that man had more balls than a pool table.My Review:After reading her last book, Facing a Twisted Judgment, I was an instant fan of Ms. McGillick's unique style, which involves a special blend of amusing humor embedded in her intrigue and suspense. This was despite the expletives streaming from my mouth and steam shooting from my ears upon reaching that cliffhanger ending, which oh happy day, reached a conclusion with Karma Never Loses an Address. Karma was even more complex and cleverly nuanced with the chilling fratricidal psychopath Marley taking center stage, and I would have expected nothing less from the diabolically clever Ms. McGillick. My favorite octogenarian, Mary, was well represented but could always handle more attention, as I adore that wily little crone and her lethal handbag. Mary deserves her own book, as she is such a corker. The storylines were well-constructed and multi-layered and told from multiple POVs with several rather complicated yet intriguing crimes taking place. Moral boundaries were smudged and ethics were stretched, but it all worked out to the greater good… essentially ;)

    Ha! Karma is a bitch, darling! 😉Unexpected storyline, liked this concept a lot! Justice comes in different forms, Karma is my favourite 😎 "...for now, I suppose I’ll just have to step back and let Karma finish off what she started..." I was slightly disappointed when I started this book, since despite it's connected to Facing A Twisted Judgment, the main characters Dalia and Declan wasn't present in it. Mary didn't have her own chapters, but she was an active investigator. The car scene - Mary, Ha! Karma is a bitch, darling! 😉Unexpected storyline, liked this concept a lot!

I was slightly disappointed when I started this book, since despite it's connected to Facing A Twisted Judgment, the main characters Dalia and Declan wasn't present in it. Mary didn't have her own chapters, but she was an active investigator. The car scene - Mary, you are the badass!!! 💋Marley - female murderer and the 'main' villain was written excellent. I hated her, such a cruel heartless person! I only asked myself how could she escape for so long? The last chapters incl her arrest and meltdown were satisfying. She definitely deserved what she's got, even more. Alex - the male villain from the previous book (what a waste if a beautiful name 🤣) wasn't miraculously set free and jeez. This abhorrent manipulator and cheater also deserved what he's got.👑 Karma, darling, you are the Queen! 👑Tallulah - the attorney, who was hired by Eloise and Mary to help with the investigation, was also a good friend. I assume we'll meet her in future books, because her character and also her possible love interest have a big potential. Marin Steele - an artist, who worked for Tomaso Avanti, the shady art dealer, was a 'black horse' till the end. I didn't expect her to deal the way she did. Bravo! Sooooo cool! 😀 She may become a suspect in one of the future stories, but I still hope to meet her again.I really enjoyed this book. It's not your typical crime-mystery, it's deeper.It's always a pleasure to discover an author, who respects her readers enough to research every aspect she's writing about and to deliver an intelligent book, which makes you think!

With Alex now safely tucked away in prison, Marley was set to inherit millions of dollars tainted with her sisters blood. But suddenly two obstacles stood in her way,one was her brother and the other was a feisty,old woman.Mary wasn't happy about Alex's conviction and when Mary gets a bee in her bonnet about something,nothing and no one will stop her getting to the truth. Ok, Alex might be an obnoxious,sleezebag but that didn't mean that her deserved to be locked up for a crime that he didn't commit.But Mary is pitting herself against a deadly,twisted psychopath who has killed before and is prepared to kill anyone who stands in the way of her obtaining the reward for her well executed plan.If you have read the previous book Facing A Twisted Judgment then you are already aware that Marley is more than one sandwich short of a picnic. We get to spend a lot of time inside Marley's head throughout this book and she is definitely a very twisted,opinionated and not very likeable character. Neither Jackson,Cillian or Dalia appeared in this story instead the main character was attorney Tallulah West (love that name) who was best friends with Jackson's wife Eloise and was hired by Mary to help her prove her case against Marley. Tallulah had her doubts about becoming involved in the investigation especially considering Alex had confessed to Samantha's murder. But the more they uncovered, the more she began to realise just how deadly and devious Marley really was. Interspersed throughout the book were chapters that were voiced by a young artist called Marin who had been tasked with reproducing replicas of Samantha Bennington's collection of paintings. Unfortunately none of the chapters were voiced by Mary which was a shame because she is a wonderful,vivid character. I think almost everyone would love to be as active and feisty as she is when they get to ninety.The Italian Mafia,abusive husbands,unscrupulous art dealers and a unstable,crazy woman all combine together in a deception filled game of cat and mouse. There was twists and turns and a couple of intense heroine in danger moments. It's a well written thriller,it's obvious that the author has done a lot of research into the subjects covered in this book. An enjoyable read and I hope the author is planning to write more books featuring Mary in the future.

    When I picked up this book I did not realise this was the third book in the series. Although it does not impact any of the reading, it has made me really intrigued to pick up the first two as the one constant in the books is Alex Clarke, especially with the things alluded to in this book.

Although it does not impact any of the reading, it has made me really intrigued to pick up the first two as the one constant in the books is Alex Clarke, especially with the things alluded to in this book. I did get a little bit lost at times with some of the story, however, after re-reading a couple of passages I understood what was going on, just the wealth of knowledge and information is amazing.I love legal thrillers, I love courtroom dramas the best, so to get an insight into this world is something I really enjoyed. Aunt Mary, well she is a spitfire and a half, she is one crazy lady you want to make sure you stay on the good side of. The story is told mainly through Tallulah's eyes, a family law attorney and from what I can garner a new character in this series. I really liked her as she seemed to be a voice of reason at times.I love that the author created a character you are not meant to like them, but in Marley’s case, I kind of did like her. Don’t ask me why, there was something about her honesty and determination to get what she wanted, even though she was completely and utterly in the wrong! She is a self-absorbed woman and is out to get whatever it is she wants without thinking of anyone else. She was devious and I think that is what made me like her so much, not normally me – must be my mood!The depth of the knowledge that Ms McGillick has is amazing, and it definitely enriches the story as you watch it unfold. It is snappy and keeps you on your toes. I am off to get the first two books on Kindle Unlimited so I can see how this story started!It is true that Karma truly will bite you on the bum!

I didn't have to wait long, as once again the author took me on a fascinating ride, telling this latest story from three viewpoints.Tallulah West, as a practitioner of family law could not have anticipated what she was letting herself in for when she "joined" the team who had initially investigated the missing paintings. But I think the icing on the cake was meeting Mary - it was for me too. Tallulah (Lulu) found herself embroiled in many a scene that challenged her rule-abiding persona, but the pursuit of justice kept her focused on the end game - which hoped to prove that Marley was the murderer who should be behind bars. With Mary as a constant "guide", the path to justice was never dull. Mary deserves a series of her own! Just sayin' ;)Marley Bennington, at the centre of the story for having killed her sister in the first place, did not go on to redeem herself in this story. In fact, she proved to be just as conniving, manipulative and cold-hearted as ever. She was the sort of woman about whom no-one would have had a good word - apart from her drug dealer maybe - and even that would be doubtful. Marley expected so much from life, hated the word "no", and looked down on almost everyone she met. Was she as clever as she thought she was? I couldn't possibly comment. You'll need to read the book.Marin, the artist, had an exceptional talent for imitating the works of the great masters. Until now, she had only ever dealt in creating replicas in the style of those artists, so the job ahead of her this time was both more challenging and more dangerous. Marin wasn't one for socializing, or for building friendships. She'd had a tough time at college and sought refuge in her art. I was on her side throughout, and so wanted the best for her. Was I surprised at how things turned out? You betcha! That was a clever twist by the author.With great characters such as these, the story flowed along at a snappy pace with plenty of bumps in the road. At the outset there was rather a lot of exposition, both in explaining much of the legalese as well as establishing the backstory, but story soon found its groove. I loved the contrast of the serious elements of the crimes committed which were balanced with nice touches of light humour (usually disbelief at whatever Mary did or had done to get the results she did).Another winning story from one of my new favourite authors.

    I'm really glad I got to read this book. It is very well written and realistic. In case you haven't read the first book then I'm not going to spoil anything for you but I was really hoping a particular character was going to get caught in this book. The character didn't deserve being free after all she had done. The only thing I didn't like is the character Marley, but it is a good thing because that means that author had written her so well to make me not like her character at all.

And in my quest, it bothered me more and more. I had questions but no answers. Thus Facing A Twisted Judgment and Karma Never Loses An Address were born. These two books are centered around the theme of- just due- justice and karma. But what is justice? I think of justice as what we as a society assign as punishment based on our expectations of people's behavior. Karma is what the universe assigns as your just due; cause and effect. Once a judgment is passed and if it's not adequate does karma come in to finish the job?It is my hope that readers will use the characters and plot merely as tools to help determine their own definition of justice and karma. Alex is clearly a corrupt attorney who should be jailed and disbarred for his misdeeds. But he faced a life sentence for something he wasn't guilty of. How could he be punished through our court system so severely for something he didn't do? Marley the little psychopath escaped a lethal injection. Sure she went to jail for a period of time for her other crimes but escaped with her life. How could that be fair? And Marin, in the end, tried to escape her bad deeds by transforming the fact she was nothing more than a thief into being a philanthropist. A philanthropist with someone else's money. She escaped justice altogether. Would karma catch up with her? Society asks us to blindly depend on a judge and jury to determine what punishment should be meted out. But what if our legal system is broken. Should we then hope that karma will find these people to inflict some type of punishment? Or should the aggrieved person be the one to hand out the punishment? I would love to hear from readers what you feel is justice and karma. When it was time for the characters to do the right thing, make a big move that involves absolutes or to accept responsibility for their actions and move on, did they?

This includes more murder. While some of the story is told through Marley's thought process, we get to see just how heinous she is.Marley cannot get her hands on the family millions if she is convicted of her sisters murder. She literally has millions of reasons to make sure that her evil doings are not discovered and will go to any lengths to make sure that her secret remain undiscovered. With some fabulous characters, this is a tangled tale that, when the pace picked up, kept me on my toes. I would like to that Rachel’s Random Resources and K.J. McGillick for providing me with a review copy of Karma Never Loses an Address. The gifting of this book has not influenced my review.

    Hard goingThe book started off really well, I thought j was going to be enthralled and find lots of suspects and conspiracy. But I feel really let down.The first couple of pages really had me convinced it was going to be my kind of book, only to have the thought ripped from my hands, and a cold damp squib left in its place.The book didn't really have a follow through, it kind of jumped from one person to the other, without really explaining anythingVery disappointed.
