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.
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.
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.
I won't say that this is a "feel-good" book - it isn't, but Ey Wade manages to capture the wide range of emotions that come to surface when people cannot depend on "the powers that be" to do the right thing. Rage, denial, guilt, sadness, hopelessness...you will find it all in this small, Texas town.
I found myself being able to relate to different characters in this book - and some characters I wanted to throttle with my own hands. One character who surprised me was Vivian. As a mother myself, I found it hard to believe that another mother would handle herself the way she did after she found out such devastating news. Also, Vivian's parents did not react in a way my own parents would have. Let's put it this way, if anyone were to ever touch my children in a harmful way, I would kill them. If I didn't get to them first, my father would.
I enjoyed this book. Durham was my favorite character. He was like an onion with many layers that kept being revealed. I love it when a character has depth. I love it when you think you know a character and you end up not knowing them at all! There were many surprising twists in the story. The sad part about it is that it's totally believable and has happened many times. I'm so glad Ey Wade's book sheds some light on this very serious topic.
