Part 1 of 8 in a chilling, high-octane FBI thriller TOUGH JUSTICE from NYT bestselling author Carla Cassidy and Tyler Anne Snell, Carol Ericson and Gail Barrett.
I don’t usually do a lot of serials but this one really intrigued me. This book introduces us to Lara Grant and focuses on telling us about her past. After spending a year under cover to bring down a major mafia drug trafficker, Lara goes into the Witness Protection. She is there until all members of the gang are tried, convicted, and locked away for good. That is assuming they were! Now Lara is back and barely has a moment to meet her new partner, Nick Delano, and the rest of the team before she is called away. Nick is a man with secrets and Lara isn’t sure she can trust him. However Lara has a few secrets of her own.
All of the characters are very well written and I could not have been more engrossed in the story. I am so thrilled that I was able to get all eight of the books at once cause there is no way I would have been able to wait to find out what happens. There is enough suspense and action to keep you on the edge of your seat while entertaining you. Carla Cassidy did an excellent job of laying the ground work for each of the future books and although this was a short read it is certainly more than worth it.
