Item description for Casey's Revenge by Mary Charles...
Is this the best of all possible worlds? Well, almost, or so Casey Forbes thinks. She is a college professor with a successful career and good friends; boyfriend trouble in the past, perhaps, but who hasn't? And her prospects are excellent.
But no woman can expect to descend into the real life nightmare, that envelopes Casey ... out of nowhere.
Mary Charles's heroine is forced to confront the darkest side of human nature and the most bestial of acts committed by man. Yet it is the strength of will, the trauma inflicted on Casey's personality and the resourcefulness of the female psyche that Mary Charles explores in this novel. What does it take to survive overwhelming adversity and does Casey have it?
Many dream of revenge but wonder if they have within themselves the capacity to carry it out. Can Casey? And is the price going to be too high?
Read this thriller and one thing is certain: don't ever let this happen to you.

Great characters, suspenseful ride May 18, 2004
A real page-turner, Casey's Revenge kept me on the edge of my seat with its plot twists and believable characters. The psychological reactions the heroine goes through after her ordeal are completely realistic as are the drastic steps she decides to take... The setting is colorful and authentic -- loads of fun for "locals" to enjoy and others to get a genuine taste of the Savannah atmosphere.
an ok read Apr 6, 2004
I have seen and heard alot of hype about this book and was excited to read it. I enjoyed the first part of the book, but after Casey exscaped, the book kind of lost steam to me. I was dissappointed with the ending and will not be picking up any other books by Mary Charles. The Savannah siting was pretty accurate, though.
Entertaining and Absorbing Dec 3, 2003
I read "Casey's Revenge" during a a recent trip to Jacksonville, and it completely distracted me from the rather boring ride. I found the characters (especially Casey) to be believable and sympathetic (the good guys, that is!). The initial scenes when Casey is stranded are quite creepy, and the ending is chilling! I especially liked Casey's resourcefulness and generally tough nature. The Savannah setting is well developed and adds a nice regional touch. Overall, I would recommend it to anyone wanting a captivating suspense novel with some local color. Take it on YOUR next trip!
disappointment Nov 30, 2003
I can't help but wonder if the book I read was the same book the 5 star reviewers read. The characters were shallow, the plot predictable and the "southern dialogue" lacking. For true southern lingo read Tom Wolfe's A MAN IN FULL. For a horror story with developed characters I'll stick with Steven King.
