Dear Friends of the Wordspinner’s Place.

Family Matters is artfully crafted and keeps you at the edge of your seat. It is a compelling read from cover to cover.What a fascinating group of characters Janssen has created for us; each with their own baggage and yet each the victim of either Adam Kingston III or his father. No wonder one of the townspeople hires an assassin to kill the father and son and burn Kingston Manor to the ground.Janssen toys with us as he leads us down false paths while we try to figure out who the heavy is. I guessed wrong, but that is the joy of this book. it keeps you guessing until the last page.

Family Matters is the kind of book that you will recommend to your friends and that you will be as anxious as I am to author a five-star review on Amazon.

“Family Matters” by K. J. Janssen is a thrilling novel. This major thriller author’s latest book will change forever the way we look at father-son relationships.In this family saga, the first Adam Kingston builds a clothing manufacturing company from scratch. In his sixties he commits suicide and his son takes over the business. Adam II continues to build Kingston Industries until his reckless life style results in dementia. The courts turn the father’s estate and control of the business over to his son and he is interned in the West Wing of Kingston Manor while his son Adam Kingston III ruthlessly expands the business.The lives of five townspeople are transformed as they converge with the Kingstons. The interplay between Adam Kingston III and the townspeople provides a gripping drama as each of the main characters vies for position. While each has a good reason to hate the Kingstons, only one of them hires an Assassin to kill Adam III and his father and to burn Kingston Manor to the ground.

What an exciting group of characters, what a plot, what a book.

Family Matters is now available on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00UW3HKKI/ .

Family Matters is like early episodes of the TV drama Dallas. The plot is fueled by rivalry, jealously, greed and, ultimately, murder. The setting is a stuffy New England town with an economic cast system. We have good guys and bad guys.There’s an old saying about how you can’t keep young and old bulls in the same pasture. The same can apply to fathers and sons. At one time or another, most sons feel as if they are in a competition with their fathers. The conflict is not necessarily one side, either. Although most fathers consciously wish the best for their male progeny, often a love/hate even jealous relationship develops between them that is not too difficult to understand.In Family Matters, the son, Adam Kingston III, had a nurturing experience during his formative years and until his father Adam Kingston II was deemed to be incompetent, there had always been an air of mutual respect. However, once the court appointed the son to be in charge of the business and estate, the son, while assuring that his father was well taken care of, was determined that he would never return the leadership of the family or business to his father. It was one thing to assure that his father would be comfortable for life, but under no circumstances would he ever relinquish the control he now held.

Adding to the internal family conflicts, the Kingston family has run roughshod over neighbors, vendors and customers for three generations. Their influence on the lives of five townspeople is particularly noteworthy. We are introduced to these individuals at various stages of this epoch, with each harboring resentments against the Kingston’s until one of them hires an assassin to kill Adam Kingston III and his father and burn Kingston Manor to the ground.

Family Matters is a real nail-biter. This is one thriller you don’t want to miss.

I READ JANSSEN’S FIRST TWO THRILLERS, “BLOOD MONEY” AND “FATAL DOSE”.IT ONLY TOOK A FEW PAGES OF “FAMILY MATTERS” TO REALIZE THAT I WAS OFF ON AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT ADVENTURE; THIS TIME INTO THE LIVES OF THE KINGSTON FAMILY.I DON’T KNOW HOW JANSSEN COMES UP WITH HIS SCINTILLATING CHARACTERS. ONE AFTER ANOTHER, THEY GLIDE ACROSS THE PAGES, LEAVING PANDEMONIUM IN THEIR WAKE.

“FAMILY MATTERS” WAS SO SPELLBINDING, IT WAS HARD TO BREAK FOR DINNER; I JUST DIDN’T WANT TO PUT MY KINDLE DOWN. THE KINGSTON MEN, IN PARTICULAR ADAM KINGSTON III AND HIS FATHER , ARE SO DIABOLICAL IN THEIR BUSINESS AND PERSONAL AFFAIRS, THAT ONE OF THE TOWNSPEOPLE EVEN HIRES AN ASSASSIN TO KILL THEM BOTH AND TO BURN THEIR MANSION TO THE GROUND.

“FAMILY MATTERS” IS FULL OF TWISTS AND TURNS AND YOU ARE KEPT GUESSING TO THE VERY LAST PAGE.

K. J. JANSSEN IS RAPIDLY ASCENDING INTO THE UPPER RANKS OF THRILLER AUTHORS.

This is a quality family saga with a lot of depth and mystery. The author uses the first few chapters to create a vivid world for his characters to play in. We learn about the Kingstons and all of the people who will play a part in this mystery. I enjoyed the story and I would recommend it to readers who like to read crime thrillers with a lot of suspense. The storyline is good and I was entertained enough to keep turning the pages until the end. I’d definitely read something by this author again.

Money and power vie for position as the infamous Kingstons run rough shod over the “lesser” small town’s people of Old Pebscott , Connecticut . With all the drama of a well written mini-story reminiscent of “Roots,” Janssen masterfully pulls the reader into many unfolding subplots and schemes that create suspense until the very end.Please mark Family Matters down as a must read and take an extra moment afterward to give others your opinion by doing a review.I’m sure you’ll agree that Family Matters is another five star effort from this highly respected author.

Family Matters by K. J. Janssen is an amazing read. It’s one of those thrillers that make you glad you started reading while the night was young because you can’t put it down. Page by page the author, K. J. Janssen, brings you closer to a terrible secret and it will give you goose bumps as you dive into the mystery that surrounds the Kingston family.One of the townspeople has hired an assassin to kill Adam Kingston III and his father and to burn Kingston Manor to the ground. The author does an outstanding job of hiding the identity of the perpetrator until the very end by presenting reasons why any of five townspeople could be the guilty party.Janssen is a great new author on the Thriller scene. His characters are well developed and believable and the plot generation is outstanding. This is an A1 thriller; the cover is really outstanding, too.

I haven’t read his other books, Blood Money and Fatal Dose, as yet, but they are on my list. If they’re anything like Family Matters I’m in for a real treat.

So, there you have it. If you have read Family Matters and have a few kind words to say, please write your own review. It will be very appreciated.

If you haven’t read it, give it a go. You won’t be disappointed.

That’s all for now.

Your friend,

Ken (The Wordspinner)
