Violence rages during the 1850s, as marauding men roam the lawless border of Missouri in the historical novel, Avenge. Bent on looting and killing, they raid Curtis Sommer’s farm, which sets the young man on a journey seeking justice, while confronting brutal enemies and nature's fury. One after another, the outlaws are brought to account.
Veeko, a cunning villain with missing fingers, is the last and most elusive. After he brutally takes the innocence of a young woman, the Sommer family is in turmoil, leading to startling twists of fortune and an epic battle of wits between the farmer-turned-reaper and the outlaw.
Using the magnificent backdrop of the American frontier in the 1800s, the settings for this novel range from Missouri to Texas to the pioneer trails crossing Nebraska Territory.
Extensive research has been conducted over the past twelve years, with historical events, locations, and individuals woven into this story. The novel is the third in the author’s Six Bulls Series.
