Perfect for fans of Jeff Lindsay’s Dexter thrillers and the novels of Lisa Gardner and Karin Slaughter, the gritty, action-packed Justice series continues as a depraved mind taunts those who seek retribution on both sides of the law.
I become whatever they want. Whatever they need.
Seattle Chief of Detectives Mort Grant is still reeling from losing his daughter—again. When Allie first walked back into his life, breaking years of silence, he could hardly believe his luck. And after hearing her story, Mort tried to do everything in his power to keep her safe. The only person he trusted with Allie’s life was The Fixer. But, for the first time, The Fixer let him down.
Now Mort has been called in on a gruesome murder case: a beautiful young woman found in a ravine, her body riddled with stab wounds. Within twenty-four hours, the police uncover a snuff film depicting her murder, the killer’s face always just out of shot. When a second body and video are discovered, Mort knows this is no ordinary case.
From a chain of sleazy payday loan shops to the dark underworld of the sex-slave trade, Mort’s chasing a twisted menace to hell and back. But he’s not the only one. Once again, The Fixer is on the hunt—and she’s desperate to make things right.

book review: 4.5 holy-crap stars!
Holy molly and everything that’s holy!!! What the heck was that? I think I just died from overload suspense, agony and madness. I have to admit also, that the first pages had me a bit freaked out but after awhile I got used to the a-bit-psycho situations.
And I think that I wouldn’t be over-the-top if I say that through the whole book my heart had pushed pause to her beat. Every page was throwing me into deeper waters and making me more and more addicted with the story.
But what I liked A LOT was the way Woods develops her story and, although she doesn’t write direct POVs, she actually makes you feel like you inside the head of the characters. And not just Lydia and Mort, but also the other characters who play a very important role inside the story.
I just A D O R E D her writing because it completely took my breath away and threw it over the highest cliff on Earth. And that means that it’s not coming back for a long long time.
Whatever I say about this book and story will be drops in the ocean compered to what actually deserves. But the thing is that the latters haven’t been invented yet so we need to settle on the ones who have. Captivating, breathtaking, amazing, great-written are few from those that come first in mind. And, of course, since I’m a kind-of dark bookworm, the whole set with the psycopaths just made it even more intriguing and irresistible-as-hell!!
Simply? I. Can’t. Put. It. Down…………
For the only thing that I’m sad about is the fact that I didn’t get the time to read the previous three books of the series so I can know the whole background. Though, I must say that I understood the most part of it independently from the infos that were missing and are provided from the other books. But I will get on with them as soon as possible!!
In the end, the only thing I have to say that it was one of the B E S T stories/books/series I have ever read this year. Maybe even ever!!
