Depraved Difference



When a young woman is brutally assaulted by two men on the subway, her cries for help fall on the deaf ears of onlookers too terrified to get involved, her misery ended with the crushing stomp of a steel-toed boot. A cell phone video of her vicious murder, callously released on the Internet, its popularity a testament to today’s depraved society, serves as a trigger, pulled a year later, for a killer.

Emailed a video documenting the final moments of a woman’s life, entertainment reporter Aynslee Kai, rather than ask why the killer chose her to tell the story, decides to capitalize on the opportunity to further her career. Assigned to the case is Hayden Eldridge, a detective left to learn the ropes by a disgraced partner, and as videos continue to follow victims, he discovers they were all witnesses to the vicious subway murder a year earlier, proving sometimes just watching is fatal.

From USA Today bestselling author J. Robert Kennedy comes Depraved Difference, a fast-paced murder suspense novel with enough laughs, heartbreak, terror and twists to keep you on the edge of your seat, then knock you flat on the floor with an ending so shocking, you’ll read it again just to pick up the clues.

Twisted5 star

This story is definitely one of the more twisted thrillers/mystery’s I’ve ever read. I almost didn’t read it after the first couple of chapters, thought it’d be too creepy for me, but then I was hooked. It will keep you guessing 55

Enjoyed the book. Good story line. Was not expecting the ending. 45


Not his best work3 star

This first novel in the Shakespeare series has a decent premise but it is held together by very shaky dialogue. I read the entire Dylan Kane series and loved them. I don't think the author is as strong in police procedure as he is in the special operator/military thriller genre. I would have given it two stars but the last third of the book provided some redemption. 35
