Book Description

How far can you go before justice becomes revenge?

‎"Justice Rules by Thomas White is an intriguing novel filled with gripping suspense and a look at humanity from all angles." Writer's Digest Jan. 2012.

"Filled with sharp dialogue and harrowing action, the story is a page-turner that grabs the reader and doesn't let go until the last satisfying page." --Ann Anderson, author, Snake Oil, Hustlers and Hambones: The American Medicine Show

"It was gripping, suspenseful, intelligent and surprising. I was able to figure out just enough to make me feel smart, when a twist would pop up which kept me humble. A nice page-turner. I can't wait for the next one!"
Bethyl Bird, President TexPrompt

FBI Special Agent Brian Wylie investigates the murder of an ex-con in Eastern Washington. This single murder leads to a vigilante coalition that wreaks its own brand of justice. Wylie's investigation unravels an intricate and complex plot that involves a victims help group, his best friends treachery, and his teenage daughter's well-being.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is really "all that"! May 19, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My usual genre is mystery/paranormal/suspense so "Justice Rules" was right up my alley. The characters were so well described and you got such a good feel for them you really felt invested in the novel as the plot moved along. The mystery is well developed with twists and turns you may or may not see coming. I thought I had it completely figured out and then the ending came and, well, I didn't. Bravo! I LOVE it when I can't predict the whole enchilada!

What is really remarkable to me is just how tightly woven "Justice Rules" is- I've read best selling authors with plots that take a meandering path but not this one. Everything is related someway and somehow. The setting is very believable and I gotta say Brian's (main character) fear of the woods really made him human. Some crime/mystery authors have a hard time with cop characters because the audience finds them cold or stand offish or just not relatable. Not so Brian - he comes off as a real could-be-your-neighbor guy.

The other thing I loved is that circumstances take Brian, and you as you are after all along for the ride here, to the edge of what someone might do if faced with a tragic and life altering event and a perceived failure of the justice system. I'm sure there are many of folks out there in situations where they have dealt with great tragedy and the system has failed them in some way. How would you handle it if the person who raped/killed your 6 year old got off on a technicality? Could you live with that? What would the grief and depression and emotions due to you over time? Until in that situation you just never know. It is my sincere hope that no one reading this review is, has been, or will be in a similar predicament.

The novel opens in 1990 with the assault of a young woman, Pryor Hart at a co-ed dorm in Cheney, Washington. The scene then shifts to the present day where FBI Special Agent Brian Wylie has been called on to investigate the murder of an ex-convict in eastern Washington. What will be the connection between these two violent crimes?

As Brian Wylie digs into this crime, he has to deal with some issues of his own. Aspects of the investigation and some of the violence become very personal. At the same time, there are a number of mysterious disappearances and subsequent deaths which lead Brian to conclude that vigilantes are at work. But who are they, and how are they operating? And how would you act in similar circumstances?

`The first lesson he had learned as a profiler: find out `why' and it will inevitably lead you to the `who'.'

This is a fast-paced story which delivers both a likeable and very human hero in Brian Wylie, and a sharp focus on the impact of violent crime on survivors. What constitutes justice for some victims? This is Mr White's first novel: I hope there will be more.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read! May 5, 2010
By Heather
Format:Kindle Edition
First, the cons: It is an e-book-I couldn't turn the pages fast enough.

The Pros: All of the characters are human; multi-dimensional and complex. The plot moves quickly, yet is complicated in a true to life kind of way. The story is heart-breaking, but gritty and full of emotion. In short: a good read.

Mr. White captures the emotional complexities of life, love and loss in a story that will leave you wondering what you would do if you felt justice had not been served.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Justice Rules" rules! May 5, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Thomas White brings a fresh approach to the crime procedural in "Justice Rules". Filled with sharp dialogue and harrowing action, the story is a page-turner that grabs the reader and doesn't let go until the last satisfying page. "Justice Rules" should be on every airport book store shelf. It should be on your shelf.

4.0 out of 5 stars What happens when ... May 14, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
What happens when justice fails? Are we ever right in taking justice into our own hands?

This is a dilemma faced by Brian Wylie after he encounters a brutalized body in a remote cabin. As he tracks down their killers, it becomes obvious that this murder may have been perpetrated by those this individual had victimized in the past. Failed by the system, the victims may have taken justice into their own hands.

As the story escalates, Brian faces the possibility that this one incident might not have been a solitary murder, but may be part of a larger pattern.

The action never stops as you move between instances of brutal violence and Brian's attempt to find the truth. When Brian's own daughter and others he cares about become tangled into the pattern he is unraveling, he must face his own greatest fear and greatest desire - that of taking justice into his own hands when his loved ones are hurt.

Without being moral or preachy, this book helps us to face a difficult question that many may have had to ask in their own lives. However, because of the violence and themes, as well as language in places, this is a "for the mature only" book.

The plot was well thought out and the story well told, but the crude language will stop me from recommending this book. It wasn't necessary and offensive.
