A shopping trip on Black Friday leads to Elsie’s tragic death—and leaves Jack, her husband of thirty-seven years, devastated. Unable to cope with his grief, he flees to his childhood home to be with his father, an overbearing religious zealot who puts his faith before everything—even his son.

Jack’s father convinces him that Elsie had not died in vain. Her life was sacrificed to give Jack the strength he needs for his mission: to rid the world of greed. Embittered by his loss, Jack soon sets out to punish the depraved and eradicate the sinners from the world. The greedy killed his wife, and now they must pay. But how far is Jack willing to go to fulfill God’s plan—and how many innocent people will die?

About Me

I am originally a northern girl, heralding from the Lake District. But after moving to Worcestershire to study at University, I met my husband and decided to stay in the West Midlands. I have now set up home with my husband, two cats and my dog Ozzy Osborne.

I never intended to become a writer. I’ve always been intimidated at the thought of creating a world. But after a push from the writer Caroline Mitchell, I gave it a go and my journey started.

I currently run my own company. I deliver Needs Assessments for students with disabilities going to University and people in the workplace who have a disability. This involves making recommendations to help them study using Assistive Technology.

My plan is to try and reduce this down and focus more on my book writing. It has been very hard as no one warns you how hard running your own business is. But three years later, I have worked out the balance and I am closer and closer to becoming a full-time writer
