My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A young child is brutally murdered, ripping apart the mourning family. But when the murderer walks on a legal technicality, Deputy US Marshal Tim Rackley is offered a chance at vigilante justice, doing what the courts will not--end the life of his daughter's killer.
How far would you go for vengeance? Would you violate the laws you swore to uphold? And what does that make you at the end of the day, a hero or a criminal? This is a thoughtful thriller on the intricacies of justice and the law, with a lot of gunplay and explosions to keep the excitement level high.
The ending was interesting, and I especially enjoyed some of the minor characters, including an assistant public defender trying to get beyond a DDSS (Different Day/Same Sh*t) mentality and follow those rules and precepts taught in law school.
I'm looking forward to reading more of Hurwitz's books, and he's now on my list of thriller authors to watch.
