A Lifetime of Vengeance is about the youthful indiscretions of three brothers and the high price they suffer. A seemingly innocent act turns their lives inside out. It turns these once happy teens into vengeful adults bent on retaliation. Will they succeed?
Temptation is everywhere, especially when you’re a young, impressionable high school kid. Peer pressure offers the worst kind of temptation when it includes the evil weed, marijuana. It seems so innocent and fun. What a blast it is the first few times, laughing until your sides hurt. Then it becomes a habit. Before you know it, you’re spending a lot of money keeping up with your habit. But you learn an easy way to support your habit; sell it to your friends.
That’s what got the McKinney brothers started in the business and before they knew it, they were dealing in weight making serious money. They were enjoying the high life. Then one day, their friends and business associates decided that they were getting a raw deal. So they got drunk and went to one brother’s house to air their grievances. But the young McKinney brother wasn’t home. Instead they raped and murdered his young bride. Worse, they never stood trial for the crime. The brothers’ once charmed lives turned into a nightmare overnight. They fled town but vowed to return and take revenge on the perpetrators.
When they returned to central Florida six years later with military training and a serious attitude, they started to execute their plan. But the plan took on a life of its own. The brothers didn’t know which way to turn. Should they intervene or simply stay out of the way? Who was doing their job? Would revenge taste as sweet if not by their hands? Would they be framed for killing their adversaries? You’ll have to read that for yourself.
Read the story of Pat, Joe, and Mike McKinney, three brothers caught up in what seemed to be a minor youthful indiscretion. The seemingly innocent wrong turn in life that led to dealing in the marijuana trade turned their lives upside-down. For years, the brothers found themselves plotting revenge consumed by a deep-seeded hatred. They come to find out that the hatred is based in guilt; the realization that maybe, just maybe, they were the cause of the untimely death of Mike McKinney’s young bride. Will they ever escape A Lifetime of Vengeance?
The setting of A Lifetime of Vengeance is Central Florida, in and around Orange County, north of Orlando.

There are scenes of love, hate, emotional conflict, despair, and introspect. There is violence but there is also love, family, and friendships. A Lifetime of Vengeance will have you asking, “What would I do if it were me?”
