Book Review: Die by Proxy

Hey there! It’s been awhile, huh? I’m going to blame it on life and leave out the specifics. Now that we have that agreed on, let me share my latest reading conquest with you!

Die by Proxy is the second book in Ben Oneal’s Benjamin Kroh series. The first book was a fun read that left me ready for the sequel. Book two did not disappoint.

FBI Agent Kroh gets called back to his home area when a mysterious vigilante, known only as Mr. Smith, leaves a trail of bodies along Interstate-69 throughout Michigan, Indiana, and Kentucky. Mr. Smith becomes something of a folk hero, as his victims are all discovered to be violent, sexual predators. What Kroh doesn’t know, is that Mr. Smith has a grudge and a personal vendetta against him. Once Kroh and his team become the primary targets, the race is on for Kroh to connect the seemingly non-existent dots to protect himself and his loved ones.

The story is well-crafted, and the clues leave you guessing well into the third act. Like the first book, Die by Proxy is told in first-person from the perspective of Benjamin Kroh, with some chapters being third-person when Kroh isn’t involved. The dialogue can get downright corny at times, but in a fun, light-hearted way.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the Benjamin Kroh series so far, and am looking forward to book three, Die by Vengeance. I give Die by Proxy five severed hands out of five.
