Publisher's Summary

To rogue ex-cop Jack Carlin, running a thug out of town and giving his stolen money to a kid struggling to escape the criminal lifestyle is all in a day’s work. Until it turns out the money belonged to a dangerous drug cartel seeking revenge against anybody who might have been involved in taking what was theirs.  

With his act of charity ending in bloodshed, Jack won’t let the killers – or his guilty conscience – go unpunished. But how far is he willing to go to enact his own revenge plan? And what happens when the consequences start to hit a little too close to home?  

From the best-selling author of The Hunted, The Consequence is a tense, darkly funny thriller about the limits of taking the law into your own hands.

Edgy and fast paced with brilliant narration

The Consequence is a wild ride through Melbourne’s underworld as told by the enigmatic character of Jack Carlin.
Gabriel Bergmoser is one of Australia’s great new story tellers. And this story fits nicely between his brilliant novels The Hunted and The Inheritance.
It’s dark, funny and downright terrifying at times.
Greg Caine’s narration is flawless, giving life and richness to an array of characters.
Keep an ear out for a senior citizen criminal for some fantastic moments.
This is a terrific story.
As told in the style of a mate recounting it like around a campfire, at the pub or in the passenger seat with you on a long drive.
Congratulations to all involved.
Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Great story, great narration

Great story and characterisation and the narrator really brings them alive. It’s a shame it was under 4 hours as was really enjoying being in their company.

I hope Gabriel brings Jack Carlin back and keeps Gregory as the narrator as would love to hear what happens next to him.

Also really want to go to Lilydale and drink in the pub on the platform! You’ll understand once you’ve listened.

The Consequence

Such a well written, fun and engaging story. Full of drama and action, it perfectly intertwines emotions from the past and the present. Would recommend to anyone and everyone who has a good stomach for a bit of gore.

Awesome

What a brilliant story. It was so nice to hear an Australian narrator well done! The storyline was excellent. I could not put it down. It was a novella and out of my usual genre’s, but I will be looking forward to other books by this author.

Do not miss it

Loved it. I enjoy this style of novel, particularly set in Australian locations. The imagery is enhanced being in known locations.
