       Additional Information  
     
      A haunting thriller that provokes the reader to ask, "where is the line drawn between justice and revenge?"
    Vengeance is rooted in the rich legends of the infamous Salem Witch Trials and Dudleytown, Connecticut, the self-proclaimed most haunted spot in New England. Dudleytown was founded in the early 1700s by the four Dudley brothers who had exiled themselves to escape the legacy of guilt left them by their ancestors. Their disgrace began with their great-grandfather, Edmund Dudley, who was convicted of treason and beheaded, and culminated with their father Thomas Dudley. Thomas Dudley was a persistent Puritan heresy-hunter who proscribed harsh punishments, including the hangings of accused witches in Boston and Salem. It was Thomas's curse that followed the four brothers into this quaint New England settlement deep into the Connecticut woods and almost destroyed them all.

    For two hundred years Vengeance was imprisoned in a place isolated from the inherent evils of mankind. For two hundred years Vengeance waited until three young men's playful whim brought them to him and unleashed a terror that was two hundred years in the making. It was now too late to hide the evil away as the Dudley's had done, Josh Anson would have to find a way to satisfy the ancient crimes of Salem, or die trying.
