My Impressions: evil, murder, terrorist acts, lies, betrayal, betrayal, betrayal, typical failed socialism.
Oswald Bardolf – Evil businessman
Gorg – Bardolf's evil chauffer, body guard, right hand man.
Ulysses Lundetto – evil Chancellor Zone 11
Judith Grove – 34 Y.O. JAC supervisor, one of the few decent people in the story.
Dudly Tronk – JAC, the name fits, he's a real dud.
Vengeance of an Evil Man is set in the future in an unnamed socialist society. It was hard to pick out the Evil Man because most of the main characters are liars and constantly betray one another. It's not a world you'd want to live in.
Oswald Bardolf is framed for the theft of vast amounts of money from the government. In order to avoid prosecution, he is blackmailed to disrupt the government ahead of the appointment of a new World Leader. Mr. Gorg is his main go-to-guy to carry out disruptive attacks while learning who framed Bardolf for the theft.
Bardolf is an egotistical, controlling, vindictive, extremely wealthy monster who retaliates barbarically against minor slights he perceives as an afront to his character. He thinks nothing of destroying innocent lives physically and mentally because he feels he has been offended or he looks down on their character traits.
Bardolf is a people user who throws them away when finished with them. Ulysses Lundetto is even worse than Bardolf.
There are obscene sexual encounters that are mildly described, nothing graphic. And there's mild torture.
The editing and sentence structure are good, but the author needs to learn the difference in meaning between past and passed.
Character development is good for the characters depending on their involvement in the story.
Details and research are immaterial because the entire society is fictional.
The plot is complex and interesting, but I tired of it before the story was finished.
The writing style is crisp, action filled and professional.
There is an abundance of intertwined characters and I soon lost track of them.
