Publisher's Summary

Former defense attorney Darren Street is desperately trying to put his life back together after spending two years in a maximum-security prison for a murder he didn't commit. He's rebuilding his law practice, reconnecting with his son, and falling more deeply in love with his girlfriend, fellow attorney Grace Alexander. But the past casts a long shadow, and for Street, there's no outrunning it.

Tormented by nightmares and violent mood swings, Street is seeking treatment for PTSD when a new trauma shakes his world: his mother is killed in an explosion, but the police believe Street was the intended target. Payback from an old enemy, or the calling card of a deadly new foe? Whoever's behind it, Street begins to lose his grip on reality and decides to take matters in his own hands. And the law won't stop him from revenge. Justice has a new name: Darren Street.

    Story
    "How much havoc can one troubled lawyer cause?"

    In this book attorney Darren Street, now exonerated from past crimes he did not commit is out for his own justice. He's mad and rightfully so, first he was framed then his mother's house is bombed and she it killed in the explosion. He was supposed to be there.
    The prologue of this book begins with Street killing the two men responsible for his mother's death in a secluded bar.
    It seems the only one there for him is his former cell mate. His fiancé gives him the boot and now he's really alone.
    So Street is now a suspect in 2 murders and a disappearance and he has two officers hot on his tail. No proof but lots of suspicion.
    This character is the black sheep to Scott Pratt's Joe Dillard series. Although understandable this lawyer has become a vigilante.
    James Patrick Cronin does a great job narrating.
    Good fast paced read.
    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

    Story
    "Novel #2 in the Darren Street series"

    After being wrongfully convicted by a corrupt federal prosecutor in Justice Redeemed, Darren Street spent 2 years in prison before the conviction was reversed. He now has his law license restored, but then someone kills his mother by bombing her house. Street seeks retribution against the corrupt prosecutor and against the two men who killed his mother. He decides it must deliver justice extra-legally. Meanwhile, Street's wife has divorced him and is using the legal system to minimize his time with his son. Any stability in Street's life is provided by his relationship with Grace, his girlfriend, who is the most likable person in the novel.

    I prefer author Scott Pratt's eight novel Joe Dillard legal thriller series to the Darren Street series, but both are outstanding. Both series are set in eastern Tennessee. I strongly recommend Justice Burning and the other nine Scott Pratt legal thrillers. Pratt's one excursion from legal thrillers is titled River of Fire. I definitely do not recommend it.

    "Scott P did it Again..."

    Could not put it down. This book is so different from the Dylan series, but still good. Made me root for the bad guy.
    Twist and turns throughout the book.

    Story
    "Shocking-where will the series Go from Here?"
    Would you listen to Justice Burning again? Why?

    Yes, in a couple of months. I think that I may have missed a few things..


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Was very interesting and intriguing to hear what Street experienced and how he problem solved. So many dysfunctional relationships influenced how he thought.


    What does James Patrick Cronin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A strong voice that conveys confidence in what he is doing. I am able to visualize how characters would look based on the style of speaking, the rhythm and their voices


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Choose your friends wisely


    Any additional comments?

    When is the 3rd book?

    Story
    "Darren Street Loses His Way But Find It Again"

    Darren Street, Criminal Defense Attorney, Former prison inmate railroaded by corrupt district attorney, and loving son, loses his way. You ask how can a criminal defense attorney do some of the things Darren does? Well, he went through a lot and is doesn't trust much. Can you blame him? This is not your usual attorney book. It is dark and tragic and you don't know whether to root for Darren or condemn him. It is well written and Pappy Donovan shows us who he really is. Inspector Grimes is totally dedicated but yet I was pulling for him to lose. This is an excellent book and I was sorry to see it end BUT if it hadn't ended soon, I was going to read the last chapter so I'd know what happened. I listened to the book on audible and the narrator James Patrick Cronin was superb. Fortunately, I had the book on my kindle so I was able to finish reading it and didn't need to skip to the end. The book wrapped up with Darren still intact. We know this because there is a Book 3.

    "I was hoping for a hero"

    Narration was montone, some interesting characters that could have been fleshed out more. But mostly life is a crap shoot that doesn't excuse poor behavior.

    Story
    "Justice Has A New Name - Don't Mess With My Mama!!"

    This is a great story. Darren Street has been to hell and back. He has spent two years in a maximum-security prison for a murder he didn't commit. Now he's trying to put his life back together when his mother is killed in an explosion, the police believed but Street knew that he was the intended target. Street began to lose his grip on reality and decided to take matters into his own hands. Nothing including the law will stop him from extracting revenge. Payback is a bitch, and Street is the new sheriff in town. Darren Street is a force to be reckoned with!! A good fast-paced read.

    The publisher's summary is a good synopsis of this story which I thoroughly enjoyed. I was really afraid that Street had lost his grip on reality, and had crossed over into the dark side forever. Had a decent guy turned into a psychotic killer? I hope there is another story in this series.

    Narrator James Patrick Cronin does a good job.

    Highly Recommend.

    "Not my favorite but it's okay."

    I thought "what a jewel" on of Scott Pratt's books on Audible and for free with my Kindle Unlimited. I have read more than 6 books by Pratt and all are filled with intrigue and things to figure out and this one is no exception.

    I don't know but something felt off i n this book and I wonder if listening to a book in a series that I am reading could make a difference?

    All and all it is a good book I just can't give it a 5*
