Long Violent History, a new book by Kristen Renee, has been released by RoseDog Books.


SMALL TOWN TRUCK DRIVER Eli Sigmund seems like a quiet family man. Nobody in town, his family included, suspects a thing. They'd never guess that he had been satisfying his homicidal urges for years now. Newcomer Roy gets along with just about everybody, Eli included, as they become nearly inseparable. After some time, Eli discovers a dark secret of Roy's and questions him about it. When confronted, Roy threatens to tell everyone about Eli's murderous lifestyle. The two of them use each other's secrets against one another in this violent game of chicken.


TWENTY-FIVE YEARS HAVE PASSED, and Eli tries to make things right with his family, especially with his son, Kent. While trying to build a relationship with him, he quickly discovers that Kent takes after him a little more than he would have liked. The more Eli gets to know Kent, the more things from the past begin to come up. Can Eli escape his past? Or will he end up back where he began?
