Is the greatest revenge really served cold?

Dr. Yoav Walberg is one hell of a lucky guy. He is heir to a huge fortune, engaged to a beautiful woman and is soon to be appointed to a senior position in a prestigious hospital. However, when his best friends become jealous of his success, they plot a devilish and sophisticated scheme against him. Will he notice the deadly spider webs woven around him in time to avoid the bite that will bring about his inevitable death?

As fortune continues to play with him, after three miserable years, Dr. Walberg in tragic coincidence arrives in Tibet, where he has once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to start his life from scratch.

After many years, he turned into the known and successful American businessman, Adam Defoe.

Will Adam Defoe uncover the true story behind the attempt on his life?

Will he pity the responsible?

The powers he must outwit are very dangerous, and he finds himself, once again, fighting for his life.

˃˃˃ A tightly-plotted, very well-executed thriller

The Revenge of Adam Defoe is a tale of human nature - greed, envy, jealousy and revenge. The main characters are 21st century people dealing with the issues of today in a world of consumerism, ambition and moral turpitude, but the moral of the tale is not smug or trite; it is human, thoughtful, and spiritual.

My Review

This is a tale of friendship that turns into jealousy and greed. Dr. Yoav Walberg seemingly has it all – a beautiful fiancée, a fantastic promotion and has discovered he is the to heir to a substantial fortune. When his group of friends begin to get jealous of his life – one over the fortune he has acquired, one over his beautiful wife to be and that third over the fact he was passed over for the promotion when Yoav got it instead.

His so called friends plot his demise and Yoav finds himself in Tibet, where he has once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to start his life from scratch. For me this was a fantastic element to the story and the twist that gave Yoav the chance for revenge on his former friends.

This is a fast paced story that show just how greed and jealousy get to people and this is a great story of revenge.

5 stars
