Dark Justice by Brandilyn Collins

Leah Courtney
I've read a few suspense novels from Brandilyn Collins before, but I think Dark Justice may just be the best. It was truly one that I didn't want to put down. When I had to take breaks in reading to do those pesky things like taking care of kids, homeschooling, and running a household, I couldn't wait to get back. I was worried about Hannah Shire and her mother- the characters in the story. And I know it's a good one when I start describing what's happening to my husband as if were in real life.



Dark Justice had compelling characters, an interesting variation of perspectives- from first person to third person and sometimes a look back at events, and a "fasten your seat belt" story line. This line of Brandilyn Collins books has been labeled "Seatbelt Suspense", and after reading Dark Justice, I would certainly agree!

I give this one 5 stars and PG rating for content (mentioned violence but not much description).

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.

ABOUT THE BOOK

If I’d had any idea what those words would mean to me, to my mother and daughter, I’d have fled California without looking back.

While driving a rural road, Hannah Shire and her aging mother, who suffers from dementia, stop to help a man at the scene of a car accident. The man whispers mysterious words in Hannah’s ear. Soon people want to kill Hannah and her mother for what they “know.” Even law enforcement may be involved.

The two women must flee for their lives. But how does Hannah hide her confused mother? Carol just wants to listen to her pop music, wear her favorite purple hat, and go home. And if they turn to Hannah’s twentyseven- year-old daughter, Emily, for help, will she fall into danger as well?

Pressed on all sides, Hannah must keep all three generations of women in her family alive. Only then does she learn the threat is not just to her loved ones, but the entire country . . .
