Description

How much blood would you spill to avenge those you love?Andy Park passes out at the sight of blood, but he thinks he's discovered a way to make his family's enemies pay. He isn't prepared for the fallout, though, when his teenage son is put in mortal danger and his daughter and her fiance are forced to carry out his dirty work.And yet Park's world is peachy in comparison to Tommy Savage's. A masked man known only as Mr. Smith is blackmailing Savage--for what, he has no idea. And after an attempt to gain the upper hand has near-fatal results, Tommy and his brother, Phil, find themselves heading to a graveyard with only a couple of swords and a bag of cash for company.Will they survive the night?Will anyone?With equal parts blood phobia and blood lust, Allan Guthrie's "Savage Night "unfolds over six short blood-blind hours in Scotland's capital city.
