Nameless Acts of Cruelty

US Publisher: Scarlet Publishers

Decades after the loss of his younger sister, a man haunted
by horrific memories returns to the sleepy English village
where she died
Jeremy Horton is a man denying his past, haunted by a
dysfunctional childhood full of dark secrets―including the
suspicious death of his younger sister.
Married to lawyer Sarah and with children of his own, Jeremy
keeps his eyes firmly focused on the present, never daring to
glance in the rear-view mirror for fear of what he might see there.
But when a chance encounter awakens the memories he’s fought
so hard to suppress, and the death of his estranged mother takes
Jeremy back to his sleepy hometown and the scene of the family
tragedy, he determines to finally uncover the truth behind his
sister’s death.
Villages hold long memories, and Jeremy’s presence quickly
becomes an unwelcome reminder of nameless cruelties and
shameful secrets. The more he learns, the more the stories from
his past take on a sinister significance, leading him to question his
own innocence. Meanwhile, someone desperately wants him
gone, and their efforts to drive him out escalate as Jeremy’s anxiety
spirals out of control. Do they fear him for what he knows―or for
what he’s done?
