Dr. Wade Turklen had a happy and fulfilling lifeuntil the one evening
that changes him forever.
On that night, three thugs burst into his home, brutally assaulting and
slashing the throats of his wife and two teenage daughters. He, himself, is shot and left for dead.
Awakening grief-stricken in a hospital, he is overwhelmed with
feelings of pure hatred. Was his family the victims of a random
attack? Or was he the target, and his family killed only to cover
that fact? Tossed into an inferno of rage, he is determined to avenge their deaths.
When the police come up with no leads, he decides to investigate on his own. The repercussions that result change the very essence of whom he believes himself to be.
From A Review
Another great read in the Bob McElwain tradition.

You were one of a kind.
