Justice for Joshua was published in November 2014, and is the first direct sequel to Joshua’s Revenge.
Enraged by the senseless shooting of his wife and baby daughter in Oakland, Joshua vows to use all his martial arts expertise to track down the gang responsible. The police are uncooperative, the gang is vicious, connected and willing to torture and threaten death to him. Can a Yosemite Park Ranger defeat a sociopath and his gang that kill for kicks?
Why a sequel?
For me it’s a lot of fun writing a new book. Strange and interesting things happen totally unexpectedly. For example, I knew before I started writing Justice for Joshua, exactly how it would start and that a startling thing would happen in the early pages. However, at about page fifty, suddenly and without any warning, a new character appeared, totally unexpected and unplanned. On one page he wasn’t there, on the next he was, and now he has become an important part of the unfolding story.
As I continually say in my “How to” book A Practical Guide to Writing and Publishing a Novel, writing fiction is just like life. You start and then things just happen, like life itself. You never know when and where you might meet someone that turns out to be very important in your life.
What people are saying about Joshua's Revenge
A home run! Mr. Wren’s latest novel, Justice For Joshua, is a definite page-turner. He has brewed a suspenseful slumgullion of mystery, intrigue, and love, spiced with a touch of Ninja. Hopefully, there will be more Joshua thrillers on the horizon. “…. Tell Yellowstone I’m on my way.”
