Having discovered Peter’s horrible secret,
a former fellow juror blackmails him to kill again!
Peter Robertson, 33, served on the jury trying a man accused of the murder that Peter committed. In the process, a beautiful but manipulative fellow juror, Christine Nielsen, discovered his secret. Two months later, she wakes him in the middle of the night with a threat: kill Kyle, the man who stalks and abuses her, or have his own murderous past exposed.
Peter pretends to go along as he seeks another, less violent solution, and his best friend Frankie threatens to expose the conspiracy to the police. But when Kyle turns up dead, the police arrest Frankie, of all people. Peter knows he’s innocent, but can he prove it without directing the finger of blame at himself—for both murders?
“Lying in Vengeance” is a 80,000-word crime thriller about a man seeking redemption for his fatal, tragic mistake, and justice for his lifelong friend, unjustly accused.
