Of Vengeance

J.D. Kurtness, Dundurn Press, 2019

De vengeance, L'Instant même, 2018

A pitch-black comedy about a serial killer.


A chilling justification of a life of violence, as nonchalant as it is grim.
The true horror in Of Vengeance lies in Kurtness’s ability to sway you to the protagonist’s side; more than once, I caught myself wholeheartedly agreeing with her worldview.
Kurtness writes smoothly, but the black humor won’t be to every taste. Readers into passive-aggressive fantasies will best appreciate this one.
