United in passion. Driven by vengeance.
Owen Hazard, a young farmer is dead. Murdered while he tried to prevent a robbery on his land. His older brother, Captain Mark Hazard, returns home for the funeral. Owen’s best friend, Riley runs the local pub. He has information about the night Owen was killed – he knows who was responsible. The police are doing nothing. Vengeance is their only option.
United in their passion for each other and a thirst for revenge, Riley and Mark must take the law into their own hands if there’s to be any justice for Owen.
Reader Advisory: This book contains some scenes of violence.
I previously read this story in “The Brothers in Arms Anthology” and the story stuck with me. It is not a story for the light of heart because there is murder, revenge, violence, and attempted rape scene. It is a story about two men coming together to seek revenge for the justice that was not served.
Owen Hazzard was brutally murdered on his own farm. No one ever was charged for the crime because it was stated that it was a robbery gone wrong. But the residents in the small town know that is a lie and know that justice will not be served because the ones behind the murder pretty much run the town….The Keller Brothers.
The Keller Brothers are into all kinds of illegal activities so when they murder Owen it is no surprise that they get away with it because everyone in town is too scared to do anything for fear of what may happen to them in return.
But there are two people who are not scared and plan on getting justice for Owen…..his best friend Riley and his brother Mark.
Through a series of events that I will not give away Mark comes up with a plan to get back at the Keller brothers and seek justice in his own way. Riley and Mark start to grown closer through the planning and eventually take things to a new level between them along the way.
The question is, will the vengeance that Mark is seeking end up costing him someone else in his life or will he get the justice that he seeks?
This was a good short story but I would definitely describe this book as a vigilante justice type book. There is extreme violence described in this read. So definitely TRIGGERS that could be associated with reading this book. In some ways I think I would be able to relate to how the main characters reacted to Owen being murdered but in others I do not think I could have done the same things and the lengths these two went too in order to seek justice. It was a good read regardless.
