Description

From #1 bestselling author Lisa Scottoline comes a pulse-pounding new novel.

Your family has been attacked, never again to be the same.
Now you have to choose between law…and justice.

     Jason Bennett is a suburban dad who owns a court-reporting business, but one night, his life takes a horrific turn. He is driving his family home after his daughter’s field hockey game when a pickup truck begins tailgating them, on a dark stretch of road. Suddenly two men jump from the pickup and pull guns on Jason, demanding the car. A horrific flash of violence changes his life forever.
 
Later that awful night, Jason and his family receive a visit from the FBI. The agents tell them that the carjackers were members of a dangerous drug-trafficking organization—and now Jason and his family are in their crosshairs.
 
The agents advise the Bennetts to enter the witness protection program right away, and they have no choice but to agree. But WITSEC was designed to protect criminal informants, not law-abiding families. Taken from all they know, trapped in an unfamiliar life, the Bennetts begin to fall apart at the seams. Then Jason learns a shocking truth and realizes that he has to take matters into his own hands.
 
Sometimes justice is a one-man show.

    Disappointed as I usually like this author’s work. I just never connected with it and it took forever to finish which I make myself do because of the cost. Really implausible depiction of witness protection with how the protagonist was able to do what he did.
  • Not for everyone but sill some clever parts but too much filler!

    Written mostly in the first person with lots of filler a bit slow for me which could be a short story. Sorry L, M
  • Great action

    This was the best book I’ve read in a long time. I liked how the author allowed trouble and bad things to occur in his family, usually that doesn’t happen. Some parts seemed a bit unrealistic, like the main character venturing out on his own to get the bad guys. But, it allowed for intrigue. Other than that, I thought things seemed pretty realistic. Very creative!

    This book started out with good tension but quickly became contrived and predictable. I stayed with it to the end but I felt like I was reading it just to mark it completed.
  • Couldn’t put it down

    I’m a big Scottoline fan and I loved this book. She is a superb storyteller and her books always surprise me with their twists and turns. I neglected all of my family’s duties to finish the book today. It was well worth it.

    I loved this book and caught myself picking it up to read “just a few more pages” until I finished it in 2 days. Like always, I anxiously, and expectantly, look forward to Lisa Scottoline’s next book- I haven’t missed a single one! (And yes, I know, if she read this review, she would grimace at my use of a dash…)
