One night when Jane Jerome's family is away, four high schoolers invade her Cape Cod cottage and trash it. They slash the mattresses, smash the mirrors, flood the bathrooms, and rip the furniture apart. When Jane's sister, Karen, arrives home early and interrupts the destruction, she is sexually assaulted by the teens. The vandals are not hoods or gang members. They are ordinary teenagers from an upscale town looking for some action and finding it in Jane's house. No one knows they committed this shockingly brutal crime - or so they think.
Unknown to the vandals, the Avenger saw everything. He lurked in the shadows and watched them, memorizing their faces. Now the Avenger is determined to exact revenge for the devastated Jerome family. But what these teens have done is nothing compared to what the Avenger has planned for them.
This is the 15th time I’ve read this book. I first read it in high school and became obsessed with it all of Robert Cormier’s books. But this is his best by far!!!
