Publisher's Summary

Hired by a prestigious D.C. law firm after barely surviving witnessing the murder of the First Lady, attorney Jessica Ford is deliberately keeping a low profile as she gets a sensational rape case involving a senator’s son, whom she is defending, is abruptly dismissed because the victim recants on the stand. The problem is, Jess suspects that the victim recanted because she was threatened. Meanwhile, she has an uneasy feeling about the beautiful young associate she replaced: where is Allison Howard? No one has seen her since she left the firm.

Taking over Allison’s position, Jess becomes more and more haunted by her predecessor. Then she discovers that the victim in the rape case has also disappeared. With the help of her former lover, hunky Secret Service Agent Mark Ryan, Jess starts searching for both women. Soon she uncovers the case of a missing teenage girl who knew Allison. Is there a link? When someone tries to kill her, Jess knows she is getting too close to something — but what? She and Mark race to come up with answers before time runs out...

    Story
    "More romance than mystery"

    This was far more a romance than a mystery or thriller. I thought if she commented one more time on how Mark's muscles rippled or how handsome he was I would have to give up listening to it.

    Story
    "narrator ruined the story - what's the rush!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    get a different narrator, someone who wasn't just reading words in a hurry


    Would you recommend Justice to your friends? Why or why not?

    book copy - yes
    audible -no


    Would you be willing to try another one of Angela Dawe’s performances?

    probably not


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    story was good

    Story
    "Another good book ruined by the narration"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I have never read a Karen Robards novel that I didn't like, and I'm sure this is an equally good one....ruined only by the idiotic narration of Ms. Dawe.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    This narrator drops her voice at every comma and period. It's like listening to a sing-song voice trying to sound mysterious. Annoying in the extreme.

    Story
    "3rd Grade Reader"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Better READER


    What was most disappointing about Karen Robards’s story?

    I thinl the storyline would hav been interesting had the "PROFESSIONAL READER"known how to read and captureher listeners interest.


    What didn’t you like about Angela Dawe’s performance?

    She sounds like a 3rd grader. She does not read the way a normal perso should read a story. Sh read one word at a time. It makes the story bog down. Lost inteest becauseshe madethe story uneventful.
