This is a gripping suspense that will keep you riveted. I would recommend reading/listening to all of the previous books in this series for background or you may be lost with this one.
This book picks up where the last one left off, Lydia's friend and the chief of police Mort comes to her and tells her that his estranged daughter Ali has abducted his granddaughter.
What differs about this book as compared to others is that this is not one story with one plot. This book has three major plots going on simultaneously. Lydia and Mort getting the girl back. The second is Ali's climb in the Russian underworld and the depths and depravity she will go to to rise to the top.
Finally the third plot that is actually the bulk of this book is a whole separate story about a 12 year old boy getting "accidentally" killed when he's mistaken for his brother, a gang member. This sets off a gang war that leaves many more members dead and Mort trying to find who killed the boy. He can't let it go because this child was headed for better then being with the gangs. He had good grades and did volunteer work.
There are some surprises that I didn't see coming. And throughout there is a constant threat to Lydia from Ali.
Christina Delaine does a fantastic job narrating. She does the gang members to perfection!

Audible listener Shelley titled her review with the same question phrased differently. The question about the future of the series is the only possible headline for my review. There seems to be no obvious path forward for the unlikely co-protagonists (Psychologist Lydia Corriger and Detective Mort Grant), but T.E. (Teri) Woods is a marvelously talented author who may see many future possibilities for the series. Lydia is a vigilante who kills those who need killing if the law does not take care of them and Mort is the straight arrow cop who does everything by the book. Yet Mort is aware of what Lydia does and keeps her secret.
With her Justice series author Woods' has written and released one of the best, most intense, and dark psychological series I have read. Christina Delaine does an excellent job of narration of all six series novels.
The Justice series has my highest possible recommendation. The novels are standalone, but should be listened to in order.
