Publisher's Summary

Former defense attorney Darren Street is desperately trying to put his life back together after spending two years in a maximum-security prison for a murder he didn't commit. He's rebuilding his law practice, reconnecting with his son, and falling more deeply in love with his girlfriend, fellow attorney Grace Alexander. But the past casts a long shadow, and for Street, there's no outrunning it.
Tormented by nightmares and violent mood swings, Street is seeking treatment for PTSD when a new trauma shakes his world: his mother is killed in an explosion, but the police believe Street was the intended target. Payback from an old enemy, or the calling card of a deadly new foe? Whoever's behind it, Street begins to lose his grip on reality and decides to take matters in his own hands. And the law won't stop him from revenge. Justice has a new name: Darren Street.

How much havoc can one troubled lawyer cause?

In this book attorney Darren Street, now exonerated from past crimes he did not commit is out for his own justice. He's mad and rightfully so, first he was framed then his mother's house is bombed and she it killed in the explosion. He was supposed to be there.
The prologue of this book begins with Street killing the two men responsible for his mother's death in a secluded bar.
It seems the only one there for him is his former cell mate. His fiancé gives him the boot and now he's really alone.
So Street is now a suspect in 2 murders and a disappearance and he has two officers hot on his tail. No proof but lots of suspicion.
This character is the black sheep to Scott Pratt's Joe Dillard series. Although understandable this lawyer has become a vigilante.
James Patrick Cronin does a great job narrating.
Good fast paced read.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Novel #2 in the Darren Street series

After being wrongfully convicted by a corrupt federal prosecutor in Justice Redeemed, Darren Street spent 2 years in prison before the conviction was reversed. He now has his law license restored, but then someone kills his mother by bombing her house. Street seeks retribution against the corrupt prosecutor and against the two men who killed his mother. He decides it must deliver justice extra-legally. Meanwhile, Street's wife has divorced him and is using the legal system to minimize his time with his son. Any stability in Street's life is provided by his relationship with Grace, his girlfriend, who is the most likable person in the novel.

I prefer author Scott Pratt's eight novel Joe Dillard legal thriller series to the Darren Street series, but both are outstanding. Both series are set in eastern Tennessee. I strongly recommend Justice Burning and the other nine Scott Pratt legal thrillers. Pratt's one excursion from legal thrillers is titled River of Fire. I definitely do not recommend it.
