Overview

Second edition, newly revised and edited, October 2013

Wrath is "...a vibrant novel that keeps you reading at night." - Rick Robinson, author of Alligator Alley, winner of the grand prize at the Great Southeast Book Festival in 2013.

Wrath is the story of a man who needed killing and the man who killed him.

One man is a political juggernaut hell bent on domination. The other man is a lone man in the wilderness wishing only to be left alone but force by principles to take violent action.

Based on the historic life and assassination of William Goebel - the only United States governor to be assassinated while in office - Wrath is set in late 19th century Kentucky where politics was played as a blood sport. Goebel is determined to bring the state to heel under his vision of the coming twentieth century. To do so, he bribes, threatens, usurps the law and commits murder in broad daylight.

There is only one man to stop him. He is uncorrupted by politics and untainted by society. He is an individual who only needs his intelligence, his rifle and his principles.

When an entire state is afraid of Goebel, one man steps down from the mountains to save it.

"...McEwen's first foray into fiction is one of the most interesting historical novels that I've read in a while." - Stephen England

"McEwen's got a gift of writing cinematically. This would make a barnburner of a great movie." - Jack McKee, amazon.com reviewer
