Genres: Contemporary Romance, Military/Police Romance, Romantic Suspense

A mission that will turn this case on its head…

With a sting set for a downtown bar, Special Agent Lara Grant and her team are on high alert to snare the most dangerous man in Manhattan. No one tears their team apart and gets away with it! Their aim: to get the perp's DNA from his shot glass…

Mission accomplished, but each step forward in the case takes them two steps back into Lara's past—this time, to the years before her undercover assignment, and a family torn apart by a brutal murder. But Lara knows she can focus only on the present. Because when the DNA results come through, they shock the team and rock the very foundations of the case…

Part 5 of 8 in the chilling, high-octane FBI thriller TOUGH JUSTICE from New York Times bestselling author Carla Cassidy and authors Tyler Anne Snell, Carol Ericson and Gail Barrett.

My Review

First thing to remember is that this is a crime series first and foremost so that is mostly what you will get but trust me when I say it is totally worth it. Right from the start with the big reveal you are on a roller coaster ride. I must say that I did kind of see the reveal coming from reading the past books but was still a bit surprised. Not only is Lara’s mental well being at stake but so is her emotional well being. This one really has me worried for her. Moretti always seems to be two steps ahead of  Lara and Nick (as well as the rest of the team) but they finally manage to get onto his trail. The suspense in this book is so much more that it will keep you on the edge of your seat. Like I said this is a crime series with plenty of thriller thrown in so some stuff is so not a pretty picture. However if everyone comes out of it all in the way I hope then it will so be worth it!
