Prepare for edge-of-your-seat suspense in this Thriller Short.
In this propulsive Thriller Short, bestselling author Mariah Stewart spins a tale of justice and revenge about a young woman who does what people only think about doing in their darkest moments. A night of drinking turns to tragedy when Deanna Bradley drives her intoxicated coworker, Jessie, home and into the clutches of a marauding gang. Witnessing the attack from her car, Deanna is frozen with fear. And when she does react, it’s with the greatest cowardice imaginable. She hits the gas and drives away. Consumed by guilt and shame, she embarks on a mission of revenge to bring down the men who traumatized Jessie. It’s an errand of violence and death that leads to a shocking conclusion—an ending no one saw coming.
