Jack Henley is not who he appears to be. After his fiancee is killed by a man on early release, Jack goes on a dark crusade to fix the criminal justice system. In the courthouse, he is a respected state prosecutor, but after work, he’s a member of a victims support group trying to end the state-sanctioned catch-and-release program.
By making most of the legislature, judicial and executive branches victims of crime, the state will finally have the laws it needs. But Jack learns more than he bargained about vengeance, forgiveness, redemption and truth. A battle to save a broken system becomes a battle to save himself. A fast-paced crime novel that takes the listener on a gritty rollercoaster ride through the sausage factory of criminal justice and into the lives of people it touches.

I did not read the print version but I can say that Bobo's sultry southern writing style spoken through Dorse's pipes is pure magic. You begin to realize why generations ago, people gathered around the radio to listen to stories. It's picture painting in a way that cinema, despite its best effort, still doesn't touch.
When Jack forces the priest to marry him and his fiancée in the emergency room.
He takes you there.
The book really keeps you plugged in. You understand how badly hurt Jack Henley is by the murder of his fiancee yet there's stunned disbelief that a person, high up in the halls of justice, can fall so far when it's his ox that is gored.

Really enjoyed the audio book. The easy connection to the characters made it fun and easy to follow. You find yourself rooting for Jack and his group of cronies, not knowing what is next or how it will all end. This is not your typical crime thriller. Highly recommend to anyone that enjoys a great crime novel.
