Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

A determined daughter . . .
A skeptical detective . . .
A deadly secret . . .

The police say her father's death was suicide. Kelly Warren says it was murder--and she has new evidence to prove it. Detective Cole Taylor doesn't put much credence in her claim, and nothing in his case review suggests foul play. But when he digs deeper (delete dash) and discovers startling information linking her to a long-buried secret, the danger escalates. Is history repeating itself? And who wants Kelly silenced?

Irene Hannon brings her Guardians of Justice series to a romantic and suspenseful ending with Lethal Legacy. Each one of the books in the series has been awesome--though, personally, Deadly Pursuit tops them all for me! All of the books I've read by Hannon have an intense, pulse-pounding and thrilling adventure that is sure to make stay awake late into the night!

From the previous books featuring Jake and Allison, I'd already gotten to know their brother Cole a little bit and was intrigued by him. Needless to say, I was thrilled when Lethal Legacy came out and gave Cole the spotlight. I highly recommend you read this series in order, since the series is more of a continual story of the three Taylor children.

I liked Kelly--thought she was perfect for Cole. And her love and devotion to her father was admirable. The mystery surrounding his death made for a great suspense. And while I was surprised to find out the identity of the killer so quickly, it didn't diminish the suspense of the book. I totally and thoroughly enjoyed it!

That last part of the book was intense and impossible to put down. What a wild ride! It's kinda sad that the series is over--I so enjoyed meeting the Taylor trio and listening to them banter back and forth. But I look forward to what Irene Hannon will bring us next in her new, upcoming series!

I reviewed this book for Revell. It was not required that I give a positive review, but solely to express my own thoughts and opinions of this book, which I have done.

Do you want a good book with plenty of action, and subtle clues as to "who done it?" One of my favorite authors has a new book for you! Irene Hannon's latest book in her "Guardians of Justice" series, Lethal Legacy, fits the bill. Interesting police work and a good love story make this book a keeper.

Kelley's father has died, and the police have concluded that he committed suicide, but Kelly just can't believe it. She has been close to her father all of her life, and in spite of a tough diagnosis of cancer, in her heart she knows suicide would not be her father's choice. An unexpected birthday present from her father sends her to the police. Detective Cole Taylor tends to agree with her, and he begins to investigate. What he finds brings a whole new dimension to the father Kelly thought she knew. How all this works out will keep you turning pages, so allow a little extra time to finish the book before you go to bed.

Oh, yes, you might also want to get the first two books in this series, as they are great reads, too!

Irene Hannon is one of my favorite Christian authors. The story of family, love, support, intrigue and involving the various divisions of law enforcement from the FBI down to the local police departments and sheriff departments works well in her story line. The addition of the mafia and their code of violence and control was an interesting twist. Of course the strong handsome warrior, who is a police detective and has a corrupt, off balanced addicted partner, saves the beautiful and talented young woman; even from certain death, is the story line. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, the plot was believable, the characters were well thought out and some of the characters were introduced in previous books. I would recommend.

After having read Ms. Hannon's first book (Fatal Judgment) in her Guardians of Justice series, I just had to order the last two. Ms. Hannon is a phenomenal writer! I got hooked into all books in this series immediately--as in page one! The characters are so very real, the suspense and action flows smoothly, and the romance is so very sweet. I also appreciate the ethical, moral, Christian messages found in this series. Lethal Legacy is the last in this series. As with the others, I found it a page-turner. Although each book stands alone, I do recommend reading all three in order to better know the wonderful Taylor family (Jake, Alison, and Cole). As I write this I am tempted to say that Lethal Legacy is my favorite, but, gosh! They are all superb! I have now found a favorite author in Irene Hannon. I highly, HIGHLY recommend this book and series and plan to check out her others. Thank you so very much, Ms. Hannon!

But I wish it wasn't. I have become quite attached to the Taylors, and am sorry the series is over. This book contains a sweet romance, super suspense and is God infused-a can't lose combination! Kelly shows glorious faith and love of the Lord no matter what is going on. Kelly, also, relying on her trust in God and His ways, enables Cole to view a long held bitterness in a different light.

I liked that each book in the series had the whole family make appearances throughout the story. As with the other 2 books, we find out "who dunit" early on, but that does take away from the gripping action. Another "hard to put down" book by Irene Hannon. Totally Recommend!

I just wanted to keep reading and lost most of the day because of it. I love these book that keep my interest. The whole book had good facts and a great progression of events. Me thinks the detectives were a little too able to discern what was going on and that also detracted from reality. The end was a little unbelievable and that somewhat diminished its credibility. These things are what kept it from 5 stars in my eyes. It is very worth reading. Just plan to not want to put it down.
