Legend of Shane McLean — Quest for Vengeance — At sixteen, Frank “Shane” McLean covets a commission in the Texas Rangers. With the shadow of civil war on the country’s doorstep, he uncovers a dark family secret. His God-fearing father Kirby is an Illuminati henchman and hired assassin for the secret society. Kirby is responsible for the death of a renegade Freemason with ties to Governor Sam Houston. A staunch Freemason and secret Illuminati, Houston hires bounty hunters who kill Kirby in front of his wife and son.

Shane begins a violent life of revenge for his father’s death and as a member of Terry’s Texas Rangers in the Civil War. The battles of Shiloh, Antietam, and Gettysburg leave him wounded and emotionally scarred, while his inner demons cry for vengeance.

Quest for Vengeance is the first in an action/adventure series detailing Shane’s lifelong pursuit to punish the men who made him a widow’s son.
