If you love Scandal, you’ll love Stealing Justice.

Justice “Grey” Greystone was fired from the FBI for insubordination. Now the FBI wants him to use his renegade skills to take down a serial killer who’s above the law. To trap the Lion, Grey will need to send the perfect woman undercover.

Sydney Banfield runs a women’s shelter and bends the law daily to help victims of abuse escape their painful lives. Three of the women she’s recruited for government jobs have become victims of the Lion. If Syd has her way, the vicious killer will never touch another woman again.

Grey and Sydney set a trap—with Sydney as the sexy bait—but the Lion adds a complex twist to his homicidal agenda. With Sydney’s life on the line, Grey must race against the clock to catch a killer who’s as unstoppable as he is evil.

My thoughts:
Most of what I have been reading lately has been paranormal and I have been missing reading a good thriller.  Stealing Justice was just what I was looking for.  Filled with extraordinary - but wholly human - characters, the story keep me on the edge of my seat.  I went back and forth between Sydney and Grey as to who was the true champion.  Both filled with their own inner demons and turmoil, they rise to the challenge that is the escort killer.  Indomitable spirits both, I am left with the conclusion that they are equally heroic.

The story appeals on a variety of levels and the emotions run high throughout the entire book.  The writing is fantastic; realistic, stark, vivid.  I read for the entertainment value in a book, but am hard pressed to classify this as an entertaining read as that seems inappropriate; but I truly enjoyed it.  I found myself lost in the lives on the pages, feeling their emotions and holding my breath as I waited to see if I was right about who the killer was and desperately hoping that they would figure it out in time.

I was thrilled with the ending.  I am excited to read the next book, but satisfied with the way the first book finished.  It seems that so many books end in cliffhangers and it was refreshing to find a story that could hold all the way through, finish in a way that felt right and still left you looking for the next book.
