Publisher's Summary

Hired by a prestigious D.C. law firm after barely surviving witnessing the murder of the First Lady, attorney Jessica Ford is deliberately keeping a low profile as she gets a sensational rape case involving a senator’s son, whom she is defending, is abruptly dismissed because the victim recants on the stand. The problem is, Jess suspects that the victim recanted because she was threatened. Meanwhile, she has an uneasy feeling about the beautiful young associate she replaced: where is Allison Howard? No one has seen her since she left the firm.
Taking over Allison’s position, Jess becomes more and more haunted by her predecessor. Then she discovers that the victim in the rape case has also disappeared. With the help of her former lover, hunky Secret Service Agent Mark Ryan, Jess starts searching for both women. Soon she uncovers the case of a missing teenage girl who knew Allison. Is there a link? When someone tries to kill her, Jess knows she is getting too close to something — but what? She and Mark race to come up with answers before time runs out...

No need to read 'Pursuit'...

For those of you who have been put off by the terrible reviews of the narrator of the previous book in this series ,Pursuit, (as I have been), don't let that put you off getting this book. While there are some references to what went on before, at no point will you flounder for not reading it. Justice is an enjoyable story, but I did find the mystery took back seat to the interaction between Mark and Jess. If you are in the mood for romance with a dash of thriller thrown then this is the book for you. As always, Angela Dawe knocks my socks off with her excellent narration.

- Karen "Devotee of multi-tasking, keen gardener and cross-stitcher. Now able to do both AND listen to stories at the same time. Bliss."

it's pretty good...not my favorite

Having read "Pursuit" prior to reading "Justice" I was looking forward to see how Jess and Mark's life together was going, only to find out they are not together any more. Mark's done something stupid, a fact of which he was well aware at the time he did it, and did it anyway (a passionate kiss with a former lover, who happens to be Jess's boss, knowing Jess could walk in, and she did). This kiss taking place after Mark had asked Jess to marry him and while they were still living together. Jess breaks off the relationship. Mark then begins accusing Jess of having "trust issues", saying it was only a kiss and she won't "commit" to a real relationship. Well........duh!

"Justice" then procedes similar to "Pursuit", bad guys trying to kill Jess, Mark trying to keep her alive (while trying to get her back), same senario as "Pursuit", different situations and different bad guys. If you liked "Pursuit" (and I did) you'll like "Justice".

Makes me wonder if there's going to be a third book with Jessica and Mark, just to get things worked out between them.
