"A Taut, twisting tale of justice and revenge" - Bob M
"The twists and turns from beginning to end make this book difficult to put down!"
Former victim Palmer Reed is facing the 20th anniversary of her kidnapping when she is recruited to the board of a prestigious foundation dedicated to helping the victims of crime. Run by Marjoram Swall, a woman known as The Vindicator, who helped rescue Palmer twenty years ago from the hands of their mutual enemy, the foundation gives Palmer something to believe in, hoping that by helping other victims, she will resolve her own painful past.
But something dark lies beneath the foundation’s surface, and after Palmer learns of the foundation's use of blackmail to raise money for their cause, she discovers that several individuals who escaped their blackmail attempts all later died in mysterious accidents. She investigates, and soon believes their deaths are anything but accidental.
Faced with the dilemma of staying loyal to her mentor and the foundation that's provided her with a purpose, or exposing the truth and tearing her life apart, she's forced to question her own ethical boundaries, whether the pursuit of justice and the equalization of a faulty legal system is worth murder.
But her mentor won't risk giving her that choice, and soon Palmer finds herself the target of an unknown killer, her former kidnappers, and even Marjoram herself. For Palmer has opened a deadly link to their past, and she's on a mission to uncover the truth.
A page-turning suspense thriller that is part of the Women of Redemption Series, books that feature women who may not be perfect, but perfectly kick-ass when given a second chance.
Interview with the Author
Q - So, what makes the Women of Redemption books special?
A – I think it really boils down to the characters. When I write, I let the characters tell me who they are, and what I discover is that like any of us, they wrestle with the challenges life throws at them in a varied manner. The emotions they experience are real – anger, betrayal, hurt, grief, guilt – and the choices they make as a result – whether revenge, vengeance, or just turning a blind eye - may not be good or right, but they’re human. The question facing each in the end, is what will they do to make the wrong right?
Q – You like to throw your strong female protagonists into some impossible situations. Why is that?
A – I’ve always liked books about ordinary people facing extraordinary circumstances. I believe people often find the best in themselves when faced with the worst. I want readers to put themselves in these women’s shoes, and think… How far would I go to get justice if I was kidnapped and the perpetrators responsible were never punished? What would I do if I found out the woman I most respected was taking justice into her own hands? What if I discovered the man I found guilty of murder was innocent and I was the one responsible for securing his death sentence?
Q – These books seem to cross genre boundaries, a bit mystery, suspense, and thriller.
A – I think all authors like to create books that mirror the kind of books they like to read. My top picks are usually serial killer thrillers, psychological thrillers, private detectives, and any number of thriller and mystery best sellers. I love a fast-paced style that keeps me on the edge of my seat. As a result, I think my books tend to take a part from each genre – a bit “whodunit”, some “don’t open that door”, add a few high stakes and blend them together.
Q - So, why should a reader check out your books?
A - Because you'll love the page-turning action! And thanks for reading!
