Growing up, I was taught that justice must be served at all costs. And that’s exactly what I plan on doing.
I have a score to settle with the notorious gang known as The Shadows, and I won’t rest until they pay for their sins. Some might question why I’m taking on this dangerous task, but the truth is, I’m no hero.
This is personal. The nightmares of their faces haunting me every night have driven me to the brink of insanity.
It’s time for them to face the consequences of their actions. With my skills and determination, I’m ready to take them down, one by one.
This is the fate they deserve. It’s time to make them pay.

Five Miles by Lili St. Germain is a gripping tale of family, betrayal and revenge. Germain is a well-known author of contemporary romance and thriller novels, having written several best-selling titles.
This book, first published on March 31, 2014, falls under the genre of psychological suspense. The book revolves around Mara, a young woman who has just been released from prison.
With nowhere to go and no one to turn to, she arrives at the doorstep of the only family she has ever known her uncle and his motorcycle club. The club, however, is not what it seems, and Mara soon finds herself caught up in a world of violence and criminal activity.
Germain’s writing is powerful and evocative, bringing to life the bleak setting of the story. Her characters are richly drawn, and each has their own distinct voice and personality.
Mara is a compelling protagonist, flawed yet sympathetic, and we root for her throughout the book. The plot of Five Miles is well-constructed, with several surprising twists and turns.
Germain does an excellent job of keeping the reader guessing and maintaining suspense. The themes explored in the book loyalty, family, and the consequences of our actions are universal, making the book relevant even today.
One of the strengths of the book is its pacing. The story moves at a brisk pace, and the chapters are short, keeping the reader engaged.
Germain’s writing is also concise and impactful, and she doesn’t waste words. However, the book does have some weaknesses.
Some of the character motivations and actions are not fully explained, leaving the reader to fill in some gaps. The ending also feels rushed and doesn’t provide a satisfactory resolution to some of the storylines.
Overall, Five Miles is an engaging and suspenseful book that is a must-read for fans of psychological thrillers. It is not without its flaws, but Germain’s writing and characterizations make up for them.
I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a fast-paced and thrilling read. Rating: 4/5
