Book Title: You Killed My Brother
Author: Keith Rommel
Release Date: June 2013
Genre: Suspense, Thriller, Crime, Fiction
Presented by: As You Wish Tours


Rainer is a successful doctor and father of two. He’s a celebrated member of the community for his exceptional care and charity work. Brick is a local street thug that can’t keep his nose clean. When fate brings the two together through tragedy, the life of Rainer is changed dramatically.

Glenn is a seasoned cop and Rainer’s younger brother. Trusting the justice system, he keeps his desire for revenge in check as Brick is brought to trial. But when the jury hands Brick a lean sentence, Glenn sets out to avenge his family’s suffering. But what he forgets in his rage is that for every action, there is a reaction.


“Are you alright?” a gray-haired businessman said. His face was rosy red from the cold and rife with wrinkles. His eyes were gentle and a genuine look of concern covered his face.

Ruth rolled her window down. “Do I look like I need your help?”

He hesitated. “Excuse me, I was just making sure—”

“Ah,” she said and waved a dismissive hand at him. “You’re a concerned father of someone, I get it. Mine mistreated my mother and left my family when I was a kid. Why don’t you do yourself a favor old man and mind your own damn business? I’m having a crappy day and I don’t need a sincere old fart like you trying to soften me all up. Got it?”

“If someone had been driving through that intersection you could have killed them.”

“Yeah, well, and if my aunt had balls she would have been my uncle.”

“I think you should try and be more careful. That’s all I’m trying to say.”

“Did I ask you for your opinion? Even once?”

“You have a terrible attitude, young lady,” he said, pulled his coat closed and walked back to his car.

Ruth hung out the window. “Yeah, I should be good, stand up straight, stay in line, shut my mouth and everything will be fine like a good little donkey!”

The businessman heaved a sigh, shook his head, and got into his car. He drove away, staring at her as he passed by.

“That dumbass doesn’t know when to shut his mouth and walk away either,” she muttered and started her car.
