The Butcher’s Wife


It would have passed as one of those harmless women quarrels. But the butcher’s wife cannot live with this particular quarrel. She goes for vengeance leaving death, anguish and tears in her wake.

This is the untold story of pride, envy and greed, and the unheard story of what happens when anomie challenges the long-held values of a community. Intrigues, perfidy and violence hold hands in this book in an uncommon game of love, hate and retribution.
