Living large in New York City as a corporate lawyer for the most savvy drug lord on the East Coast, Special Agent Steve Williams carefully plots Charlie Wisnowski's downfall. His plans go to hell when his wife Jennifer survives an attack by a serial killer. With her life in jeopardy and his undercover guise threatening to unravel, he orders Charlie’s arrest. But the sting goes woefully wrong and Steve becomes the target of a mafia assassin hired by the biggest crime boss in America.
Escaping from the city, Steve and Jennifer settle back into their quiet life on the banks of Mirror Lake. Their peaceful existence shatters with a crippling loss and Jennifer’s visions escalate, forecasting a brutal assault on their family.
Armed with scant details from her dreams, Steve trudges through a litany of past connections, searching for the key to stop the course of fate.
What he uncovers chills him to the core - a brother with a grudge, a serial killer and a mafia assassin are all on his trail. The hunt begins...
"Vengeance" is an intense, fast moving thriller. Steve Williams is one of those characters who, although on the right side, stretches the rules and makes overly risky decisions. In "Vengeance," Williams is clearly the good guy, and although he sometimes stretches the rules and takes some risks, it doesn't cross the line - at least not by too much. "Vengeance" includes some minor supernatural aspects.

J.E. Taylor's book "Vengeance" is a gripping novel. It was fast paced but J.E. Taylor took the time to make sure the characters came alive and the plot was well thought out. "Vengeance" had me by the first chapter and I was amazed at this novel and know that others will react the same way. You just can't ignore the events that captivate you from the beginning. This author has produced a genuine thriller!

Suspense is the key ingredient to this amazing story. This hardcore fast paced murder mystery thriller is packed full of action and intrigue. With an interesting look into the life of an undercover agent, we see some of the things that could go wrong, or in some cases right!
Taylor takes us on a whirlwind tour of the excitement and terror as we witness the agony of this couple as they try to live the double life of undercover operatives. I recommend this book to all readers!

From that moment on, she hasn’t looked back and now her writing résumé includes more than half a dozen published novels along with several short stories on the virtual shelves including a few within eXcessica anthologies.
In addition to being co-owner of Novel Concept Publishing (www.novelconceptpublishing.com), Ms. Taylor also moonlights as a Senior Editor of Allegory (www.allegoryezine.com), an online venue for Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror.
