Fatal Judgement: A Book Review

About The Book:

U.S. Marshal Jake Taylor has seen plenty of action during his years in law enforcement. But he'd rather go back to Iraq than face his next assignment: protection detail for federal judge Liz Michaels. His feelings toward the coldhearted workaholic haven't warmed in the five years since she drove her husband--and Jake's best friend--to despair . . . and possible suicide.

As the danger mounts and Jake gets to know Liz better, he's forced to revise his opinion of her. And when it becomes clear that an unknown enemy may want her dead, the stakes are raised. Because now both her life--and his heart--are in danger.

Full of suspense and romance, Fatal Judgment is a thrilling story that will keep you turning the pages late into the night.

My Review:

I have been a fan of Irene Hannon's writing since reading In Harm's Way last year (you can see my review here). Both Fatal Judgement and In Harms Way have the perfect combination of romance, mystery, and crime fighting, along with a focus on faith in God and the importance of family. Not since reading Dee Henderson and Terri Blackstock have I enjoyed a Christian Crime/Mystery author as much as I am enjoying Hannon! She is my new favorite fiction author of this genre hands down.

The book is very quick to read (I read it in two days!), easy to follow, and is very well written. You are introduced to a ton of characters, without being overwhelmed with each of their "background stories". My favorite character so far in this series is Jake. I look forward to the remainder of the Guarians Of Justice series to see how Jake's character develops. 

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!

BUY IT: Fatal Judgement by Irene Hannon is available at your favourite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group

  1. Shirley-Thank you for the great review! I'm so glad you enjoyed "Fatal Judgment." And yes, Jake will be back in Book 2 of the Guardians of Justice series, which features his sister, Alison. Watch for "Deadly Pursuit," coming in September!
