My rating: 5 of 5 stars
“When Officer Carly Edwards finds three young gangbangers shot execution style, she and her husband, Sergeant Nick Anderson, head of the gang unit, fear Las Playas may be on the verge of a gang war… As she prepares to testify at a major trial, Carly’s reputation is shredded by a reporter apparently trying to discredit her professionally. Facing pressure on all fronts, Carly must rely on faith and trust God in a deeper way during one of the biggest struggles of her career.”
Avenged is a great read packed with non-stop action and filled with significant twists and turns and just enough suspense that will certainly keep you turning the pages.
Though I did not read the first two books in this “Pacific Coast Justice Series”, I truly enjoyed this book. The author, a retired Long Beach police officer, brings great credibility and a sense of reality to the story often giving the reader small but significant tidbits of information about a particular scene that will draw the reader in.
With this particular subject matter and assortment of characters, this book could have become an “adult” read with very little effort. It could easily have been filled with foul language and seriously graphic descriptions of crime scenes. I was grateful that the author kept her audience in mind and allowed us, the readers, to fill in the blanks – if we chose.
