A solid start to a suspenseful series: My review of Injustice For All by: A Justice Seekers Novel by Robin Caroll
ABOUT THE BOOK
When Remington Wyatt sees her godfather’s murder, she recognizes the killers and knows it’s only a matter of time before they come to silence her. She must do the only thing possible to stay alive . . . run.
FBI agent Rafe Baxter is serious about his career, and solving a cold case involving a federal judge’s death puts him in line for the promotion he so desires. But the case leads him to the small town of Hopewell, Louisiana, where some secrets seem inextricably hidden deep within the bayou.
Injustice for All explores what happens when everything a person believes in is utterly destroyed. Who can you trust?
Injustice for All is a book that weaves together some of my favourite literary elements, mixing together suspense, FBI agents, likable characters, and a believable faith journey. I was immediately held captive from the beginning of the book, and enjoyed watching the plot unfold piece by piece. I love books where characters need to disappear, and I feel that the author created a plausible scenario for Remington to run from the authorities, completely creating a new persona for herself. The characters are well-developed, and the romance is handled in such a way that readers of all types will enjoy watching the relationships unfold. My one critique of the book is the scene where Remington experiences an attempt on her life. For fear of giving away part of the plot, I won't give too many details, but I simply did not find it believable that after someone attempts to kill her she remains in her house, on her own, with no police protection even parked outside or driving by her residence. Part of the plot unraveled for me from this point on in the story. However, overall I found the book to move at a good pace and to be an enjoyable novel of suspense and intrigue. I will definitely plan on picking up the next book in the series and seeing what else the author has in store for the Baxter family members.
I award this book a solid recommendation and give it 4 out of 5 stars.
