Publisher's Summary

Judge
Merry watches, her presence cloaked by the shroud of nightfall. Nothing moves except her eyes, which focus on her target. No remorse. No regret. No second-guessing the decision to end the lives of the monsters who turned her into a killer.
Jury
The peddlers of death from potent chemicals are found guilty. Punishment for their crimes - death. Appeals denied. Sentencing to commence immediately. The leeches who sucked out the life of addicts with each snort, puff, swallow, and injection will now pay the ultimate price.
Executioner
The idyllic world of Merry Marie Hall, once the loving wife of Harold and mother to their only child, Joshua, is over. Extinguished when Joshua overdosed and Harold died of a heart attack at the funeral. Now Merry hunts down the guilty parties and, one by one, carries out her internal court's orders. Court is now in session.
This book was inspired by one mother's journey, a trip down the dark path paved by the demon that came looking for her son - and found him. Her boy's life turned from the pursuit of a football scholarship to the relentless need for heroin. His life was stolen by the demon. What's a mother to do? What can a mother do? This fictional mother did what so many only dare to consider behind closed eyes, in their nightmares, and in their dark fantasies.

A must read!

Merry lost everything, her son died from a drug overdose and her husband had a heart attack at the funeral. In the space of a few days her life was over. So she decides to take matters into her own hands and hunt down the people responsible for selling drugs. Merry works in law so is able to get the names of dealers easily. The first person on her radar is a drug dealer. Can she dole out her justice without getting caught?

Ashley Fontainne is a master at twist and turns in a book, and this is no different. When you think you know everything, bam, she hits you with something unexpected! I've read a lot of books by her at this stage, but never one that has ripped at my heart as much. This was amazing but so heart wrenching.

My heart ached for Merry. She tried everything to help her son, yet when it seems he has kicked the habit, he turns up dead of an overdose, add in her husband having a heart attack at the funeral and you just think, how is the woman still standing! But she does, and she knows that the scum who are responsible for her sons death won't come to justice, so she takes matters into her own hands. She is such a tough cookie, yet you just know her heart is broken.

The fact that what happens to her, is something that is happening in real life, just makes this all the more hard hitting. I have 4 boys and I dread what life will be like in a few years when they start to go out on their own. Drugs and stuff are rampant and this book just portrays the reality of them perfectly.

This author has created a book that will make you think, make you realise that little things don't matter! After listening to this, I went and talked to the older boys about drugs and what they would do if offered some etc.

Anyway, back to the book. All that's left to say is, go get this book! It will ensnare you and you won't be sorry. This author has an amazing talent and I really hope more people will see her work. The book is amazing and I highly recommend.

This isn't the first book I've listened to by Rebecca Roberts, nor will it be my last. She is quickly becoming one narrator I know will give a brilliant performance every time. Her range and tones are impressive and she always manages to pull me into the story.

*I received a copy of this for review. This in no way affects my thoughts.*
