Inked In Blood

A tortured, tattooed albino returns to the town he ran away from as a child to exact his revenge on all those who wronged him, and face the man he fears the most. His father.

It wasn’t forgiveness for the constant physical and mental abuse, the broken bones and stitches of the past that brought a tortured young man back to the town he ran away from as a boy. It was revenge.

Sheriff Edsall Quarrels was a cruel and vindictive man on his best of days. After the birth of Aesop, his "freakish Albino son" (his words), Edsall decided to “rent” his wife out to his friends for money, instead of killing her outright for birthing this abomination. Amidst the constant abuse of growing up, Aesop was forced to endure the sights and sounds of his mothers suffering at the hands of his fathers weekly poker buddies as they played out their darkest perversions behind closed doors.

Inked in Blood starts mid thrust on this twisting trail of carnage that ultimately must lead to Aesop facing the one man responsible for their suffering-his father. One by one he will make them pay, and among the wreckage of human flesh, Aesop will uncover a hidden family secret that threatens to tear him apart.
