How many lives can be destroyed by one man's quest for revenge? A good number, when that man is power-hungry, self-proclaimed king Denyson Folworth. As suspicion mounts that he had his father murdered, circumstances change, control slips, and pressure builds. Folworth, who knows he must change public perception in order to remain in control, will stop at nothing to eliminate his adversaries, especially the renowned assassins known as Forzenay's Five. Forzenay and the others have no intention of allowing Folworth to dictate their paths, but that becomes increasingly difficult as their identities are exposed and a campaign of vicious propaganda gains momentum. Drastic change seems mandated, and difficult choices become the order of the day, but in a deadly game of vengeance, not everyone can or will survive.
Jane Shoup is an award winning author working in several different genres. In fact, she's happiest when she can roll several into one novel - despite being told on numerous occasions that it's against the rules. (Probably a clue to her rebellious nature.) Born in Indiana, transplanted to North Carolina, she's the mother of three young adult daughters, two of whom were her first and only Facebook fans for many weeks. Sadly, social networking is not a strength, although she is working at it.
