East Anglia, a region of peace and violence
The countryside of East Anglia is either flat or pleasantly rolling and undramatic, the views are gentle and attractive, but rarely spectacular and there is a constant sense of being freed from the memory of urban pressure and noise. For those who have no love of the country, it is still possible to use the fields, lanes and woods as a form of palliative to try to soothe the gnawing, urban pains of worry in the stomach and stabbing tension in the head.
In contrast, some of the characters in Wild Vengeance by M. G. Thomas suffer real physical violence to the stomach and head, sick threats and death.
This is a story of repressed anger, mystery and fear in a small English market town where even the local church is not immune from vandalism and attacks of revenge.
