Justice by Karen Robards
August 15, 2011 - Amy Phelps
New York Times bestselling author Karen Robards tells the story of some twisted vengence in "Justice." Criminal attorney Jessica Ford is picking up the pieces of her life after being the witness to the First Lady's murder. Now in Secret Service's unofficial Witness Protection Program, she's working as a defense attorney with a different name and even a different appearance. Her case is to defend a senator's son charged with rape. Even Jess has trouble believing his innocence, but is determined to do a good job on the case - until the victim recants her testimony. The case is closed and everyone is happy, everyone but Jess, who witnesses the victim having an uncomfortable conversation with a stranger. And there's the little matter of the woman that Jess replaced at the office - what exactly happened to her? When Jess is almost attacked outside of her apartment, she is saved by her ex, Secret Service agent Mark Ryan, who is determined to protect her even as the two struggle to find the truth - before it gets Jess killed. A good romantic suspense novel with a tough but feminine heroine, Robards does a good job creating likable characters involved in tense situations. You'll stay up late reading this one. "Justice" is published by Gallery Books. It is $25 and 342 pages long.
