5 stars Great book, fantastic story! This hits all the right notes; the characters are exciting and the story flies off the page. Can't wait to read more from this series.
4 stars I actually really enjoyed it. Why? Because of the cast...... plain and simple.
CJ (only had a couple of) young, buff, 6-pack sporting, Dwayne Johnson look-alike, guys handling the case of "Who really shot Officer Ivey?"
She had military veterans, men/women injured in battle working the case. Heck, the youngest man from the Devil Dog crew was 64. Heck, they even had a beagle (Grunt) getting into the thick of things.
Favorite Paladin? Hale, lead investigator. He walked with a cane and used it as a weapon, too. Oh yes, he's still pretty badass!!
Seriously, you couldn't find a more diverse cast of characters.
