Angel of Vengeance

In Edgar Award nominee Ron Cutler’s terrifying new thriller, psychologist Holly Alexander must unmask an avenging angel—and uncover a legacy of evil… The first to die was a convicted abuser recently released from prison—only to be abducted, drawn and quartered, his body displayed like a medieval warning. Next was a powerful man who had connections to the original victim—and who suffered a similar grisly fate. When Holly is called in as a consultant, she quickly realizes she’s on a trail as twisted as the criminal mind itself. The darkest pages of history soon reveal the killer’s inspiration: a secret book of tortures penned in the bloodiest days of the Inquisition that has survived to feed a modern-day monster’s sadistic imagination. To end this new reign of terror, Holly will have to add her name to the avenger’s list, marking herself as an enemy of justice…and a “sinner” whose only salvation may be death…
