“AN OLD LADY DIES IN BRUTAL CIRCUMSTANCES. A YOUNG BOY IS DRIVEN TO SUICIDE. A SCIENTIST IS KILLED BEHIND THE WHEEL OF HIS CAR.

These events cast a shadow over the lives of Eric, Peter and Ronald, three friends who are drawn deeper into the living horror of a punishment that claws at them from the past.

A novel of harrowing suspense and mounting terror, the story of a guilt that refuses to die and a vengeance that cannot be assuaged.”

Thanks to Steve Goodwin for the cover scan and blurb.
