A Crime Thriller with Twists
Detective Jason Scarsdale’s wife, Charity, passed away four weeks prior as the result of a car wreck, leaving him with a five-year old daughter, Shannon, whom Jason has rather ignored because of his long hours at work. Severely depressed, Jason was on the edge of committing suicide until he was reminded how much Shannon needed him, particularly now. Jason’s police partner, Harris, and he were called out on a case where a pedophile was involved and thus began this story of Jason and his buddy Harris investigating several pedophile cases of rape and murder.
Demi Mueller, an observer at the trial of a pedophile who had murdered a nine year old girl, was once known as Karla Engel, a defense attorney and crime analyst in California whose own ten-year old daughter had been raped and beaten to death by a pedophile. Karla shocked to the core when the murderer of her daughter was not convicted and received notes and phone calls from him bragging about how he did her daughter, found him and made him pay. Then she legally changed her name. She thereafter secured a position with the Austin Police Department as a crime analyst specializing in child molesters. Demi decided that all pedophiles who got off without a conviction would suffer the same as their victims had suffered. She would take the law in her own hands.
From there the story has many twists and turns relative to crooked police, pedophiles, murder and some romance. This tale is a page turner, well written and an easy quick read. I recommend it.
