A.J. Scudiere puts a serious twist on revenge in the start of this award-winning trilogy. Readers say it’s “Seriously one of the best action/suspense books I've ever read.” And “the ending will surprise and delight you.”
When Cyn's parents are killed in a mafia hit, she vows revenge on Kolya Kurev, the man responsible. The only problem? Cyn is just eleven years old. Single-minded in her determination, just a handful of years later, Cyn becomes the killer she needs to be. Until she meets Lee, a man also deeply wronged by Kolya Kurev. Cyn's new problem?
The enemy of her enemy is ... still her enemy.
Lee is stealing her kills and trying to break through the carefully carved life she’s made for herself. As if his mere presence and counter-productive ambitions weren’t enough, he’s going to get her caught…
The FBI has been on her tail for several years now, but they haven’t even come close to finding her. Cyn has been leaving fake evidence at her crime scenes and counting on the one thing the FBI hasn’t figured out yet… Their most wanted criminal is just a girl.
Vengeance is the first book in the Vendetta Trifecta. While it can be read as a standalone, be prepared to reach for book two as you finish this one.

Three years ago, Heather Kennedy left the Metropolitan police under a shadow that has followed her ever since. Now she has been called in to advise on a supposed burglary in the now-defunct British Museum reading room.
Kennedy soon establishes that rather than steal anything, someone has broken into the stacks in order to photograph pages from books about Johann Toller, a crazed prophet of 17th century Europe. Toller believed that the end of days was at hand, and he made a number of prophecies relating to the Apocalypse and the events that would precede it. None of them came true.
One after another, the grotesque signs and wonders Toller predicted come to pass, no matter how unlikely they seem: the river Rhine runs bright red, the towers of London bow to kiss the ground, and an angel with a fiery sword is seen over Jerusalem.
With the help of a nineteen-year-old girl from a secretive tribe and ex-mercenary Leo Tillman, Kennedy must work to stop the next prophecy coming true - the destruction of an unnamed city...
The second thriller featuring Heather Kennedy is every bit as gasp-inducing as The Dead Sea Deception - and the end of the world is on the line.
