On their first date back in law school, Natalie and Will Clarke bonded over drinks, dinner and whether they could get away with murder. Now married, they’ll put the latter to the test when an unchecked danger in their community places their son in jeopardy. Working as a criminal defense attorney, Nat refuses to rely on the broken legal system to keep her family safe. She knows that if you want justice…you have to get it yourself.

Shocked to discover Nat’s taken matters into her own hands, Will has no choice but to dirty his, also. His family is in way too deep to back down now. He’s just not sure he recognizes the woman he married. Nat’s always been fiercely protective, but never this ruthless or calculating. With the police poking holes in their airtight plan, what will be the first to fall apart: their scandalous secret—or their marriage?

My Review:

A solid thriller about two parents, unhappily married but drawn back together when they have to deal with what is happening to their community and how they need to protect their some from it. I absolutely did not care for either character. Flawed and doing what they feel they need to do, I just couldn't connect with either one. The subject matter is always a tough one but the author doesn't go into too much detail which should be helpful to those who may be triggered.

Lately it seems that the books I've been reading seem a bit abrupt in their ending compared to the suspenseful build up from the first half of the book. It all happened a bit too quickly for me and then ….. where'd it all go? I needed just a little bit more from it. I'm so torn in how I feel about the whole thing. Enraptured for the first half, tense for part of the second and then lost a teeny bit of interest with the quick conclusion.

My second book by Hunt and I'll be looking for the next release.
