Eli Yance creates an exceptional story of three narratives that come together in an unexpected way that will have you on the edge of your seat in Consequence. This novel focuses on a family of three, two conmen, and two hitmen, who wind up becoming enmeshed in each other’s lives through a series of decisions that lead to terrible consequences, which the title hints at. Each choice these characters make, no matter how small, ripples out and changes their lives forever.
Howard Price is a rich executive who adores his family, especially his seven year old daughter. After being goaded into taking a holiday from work, Price spends the time spoiling his daughter and enjoying their time together. In a brief moment his relaxing family time is interrupted and everything begins to spiral out of control after an evening out. The other two narratives in the story each focus on a pair of men. Darren Morris and James Roach are hitmen, who are gradually becoming frustrated with their work. The more time they spend working on a job for their current mobster boss, the more they want to set out on their own. Roach and Morris wind up agreeing to do their own job for the first time, which they never expected to become something so elaborate. The other pair is two conmen, Michael Richards and Johnny Phillips, who have been working jobs with the goal of one day having the money to open a gambling joint. After pulling an easy job, Phillips decides that they should do something bigger. As he continues to plan the men find themselves caught up in a series of events that they don’t quite understand.
Consequence is an immersive and well written thriller that keeps you glued to the book. I honestly couldn’t put this down and was desperate to learn how the three storylines would come together and once they did I couldn’t stop reading until the last page. You will be shocked by the events that unfold and even the best guessers will not be able to see the ending coming. There are so many twists, turns, and surprises that once you start reading you will need to clear your schedule. If you don’t you won’t be able to concentrate on anything else. Eli Yance does an exceptional job of creating a dynamic world that leads you to sympathize with characters you never would expect to feel sympathy for while shocking you with a complexly well written plot.
