About the Author
Wendy Whitman has a unique background through her decades-long work as an executive and producer for Court TV and HLN, covering almost every major high-profile murder case in America. Through her knowledge of the most detailed aspects of the crimes, Ms. Whitman has become an expert on the subject of murder in America. Before attending Boston University School of Law, Whitman worked for comedians Lily Tomlin and George Carlin. After graduating from law school, the author embarked on what turned out to be a twenty-year career in television covering crime. She spent fifteen years at Court TV and another several at HLN for the Nancy Grace show, where she appeared on air as a producer/reporter covering high-profile cases. Whitman received three Telly Awards and two GLAAD nominations during her tenure at Court TV.

Wendy Whitman attended Tufts University, graduating with a degree in English and Photography. Her first book, Premonition, was published in 2021.
Reviews
"LIGHTNING STRIKES TWICE! Wendy Whitman does it again with a spine-tingling dive into crime, stealth, suspense...in one word? A thriller!"--Nancy Grace, Host of Crime Stories, and NYT Bestselling Author
"Retribution, Wendy Whitman's worthy successor to her exceptional debut novel, Premonition, is a tautly-constructed, page-turning thriller. Driven by a fascinating and frightening villain, the intrigue and suspense are unrelenting. Buckle up--you're in for a breathtaking ride!"--Jack Ford, Emmy and Peabody Award-Winning Journalist and Bestselling Author of Chariot On The Mountain
"Retribution, the sequel to Wendy Whitman's powerful debut crime thriller Premonition, takes the reader on a demonic journey filled with smartly written plot twists. Whitman's true crime background shines through each and every page as she takes us into the mind of a demented serial killer. Clearly Whitman has penned another unique and unforgettable thriller, masterfully written and one that will leave you at the edge of your seat."--Rita Cosby, Renowned Emmy-Winning TV Host and Bestselling Author
"Wendy Whitman does it again! Her first book, Premonition, was a fast and furious page-turner. This sequel, Retribution, is every bit as real and frightening. Wendy's background in the world of true crime gives her a solid foundation to build a tale of suspense that keeps us all riveted. She deeply sees into the minds of her characters on the right and wrong sides of the law. Her serial killer is utterly diabolical and the cops who are out to get him are dogged and determined. This is a terrific thriller - at each and every moment!"--Rikki Klieman, CBS News Legal
"There is nothing better than another novel that enhances the excitement created by author Wendy Whitman in this sequel to her debut crime thriller Premonition. Retribution carries the day as a powerful continuation of the characters of the previous book, filled with new intrigue and adventures of crime and mystery. Once again Whitman has drawn the reader into another riveting adventure."--Gerald P. Boyle, Jeffrey Dahmer's Attorney
"Wendy Whitman's newest novel, Retribution, part two in what I hope is a long series, is a fast-paced cat and mouse game between a cop and a serial killer, who may have more in common than is first evident. Making excellent use of her years of experience as a producer for Court TV, where she covered the highest profile criminal cases in the nation, Ms. Whitman deftly teases out fact by tantalizing fact in the breadcrumb trail she leads the protagonist--and the reader--to follow. You don't need to have read her clever debut, Premonition, which introduced rival main characters, the "Deer Killer" and Detective Hank Nowak, to fully enjoy Retribution. But I guarantee you will want to! So sit back and enjoy the ride as Retribution cleverly takes you right up to the brink where you can't wait until Ms. Whitman delivers her next scintillating thriller."--Deborah Goodrich Royce, Award-Winning Author of Reef Road, Ruby Falls, and Finding Mrs. Ford
"Retribution is a serial killer thriller extraordinaire, a pulse-pounding exercise in suburban terror. Court TV alum Wendy Whitman brings her vast experience to bear in a seminal tale that takes us to the depths of human depravity and despair, as well as the heights of compassion and heroism. A neo-noir of the highest level, Retribution echoes of Thomas Harris at his best, stretching a tapestry stitched in blood across a riveting, suspense-riddled landscape."--Jon Land, USA Today and New York Times Bestselling Author
"Retribution is a brilliant, thrill-a-minute roller coaster ride through the mind of a serial killer as Det. Hank Nowak, private investigator Vito Loggia, and Sgt. Joseph O'Malley race against the clock to stop him from murdering again. A stellar, immersive follow-up to Wendy Whitman's outstanding debut novel, Premonition. Well done!"--Brian Cuban, Author of The Ambulance Chaser
"When Hank Nowak, lead detective on the notorious Connecticut Deer Killer case, discovers true crime series producer Cary Mackin is missing, the hunt is on to find her abductor. With alternating points of view between Hank and the Deer Killer himself, and peppered with references to real-world crimes, Retribution is a top-shelf serial killer chiller with a twist I did not see coming. If you've ever wondered what it's like to be in the mind of a psychopath, this is the crime novel for you."--Tessa Wegert, Author of The Kind To Kill
