1) An editor is needed. Throughout the book, there are punctuation errors (mostly left out commas) that make reading a little tricky. Nothing horrible, but enough that I had to stop and reread a line because the flow was lost.
2) Mason's cover coming back to town was just wrong. A Texas DA is an attorney, not someone with a PhD in criminology. (Maybe the degree is listed as criminal justice. Either way, he doesn't qualify.) In addition, the DA in Austin would not have a firm; he would work for the city. The fact that the cover is so unrealistic made it difficult to take seriously.
Prominent men within the town felt untouchable...that is until they started dropping like flies. Lawmakers soon realize even they have a breaking point and his name is Mason.
I give this book five stars for the creativity alone. Ey Wade has taken payback and justice to an entirely new level.
Durham, or whatever name you want to call him by, is a special kind of hero, risking it all to save the innocent from the worst horrors you can imagine. It’s a unique tale of revenge; intricately layered as more and more players are revealed.
The resolution is bittersweet in that desired ends are met, but no matter how many tragedies are resolved and how many guilty parties are made accountable, the past and the scars it carries remain the same.
The underlying theme and the hero’s catch phrase, “Life Demands Action” continues to resonate within me and will for a long time, I believe.
But what if there was no hope of putting abusers behind bars. If there was a conspiracy between the Judges, District Attorney's and Sheriffs. Would you become a vigilante? Could you become the judge, jury and executioner? How much would it take for good people to begin to take the law into their own hands. How many abused children would you be able to see discarded by the system before taking a stand.
In one small town we start to see the conspiracy's unfold. The conspiracy of silence when the people of the town refuse to stand up for justice. The conspiracy of the legal community when the police, judges and prosecutors refuse to stand up for the victims and the people who ban together to bring frontier justice to the perpetrators of the crimes.
Ms. Wade gives us a fictional depiction of just this scenario. Her characters are interesting, their motivations clear and understandable even while we shudder at what they are doing.
This book is well written, her characters are believable, the dialogue is interesting and moves the plot forward and the situations are touching and heartfelt. Ms. Wade has done her research and it shows.
There is a problem with wordiness and descriptions that take up too many pages. But the novel is still good and worth reading.

I found this novel occasionally confusing in places - when the flashbacks are of characters with different names, it took me a while to connect the people together. But it was ultimately a satisfying read after the loose ends were tied and I came away realising that no matter how often you change your identity and start over, you can never escape who you are inside.
