5 STARS FOR OUR JUSTICE
Author – John W. Howell
First Published – 2016
Genre – Suspense Thriller
Setting – California locales
Hero – John Cannon, lawyer and quick study
Villain – Matt Jacobs, wealthy terrorist set on assassinating the President and killing anyone who gets in his way or annoys him
Major Theme – Determined good wins over evil.
Descriptors – fast paced, moves at light speed, never a dull moment- seriously, well researched, puts the reader in the mind and body and behind the eyeballs of the hero, part 3 of series but stands on its own
Favorite Supporting Character – Ned Tranes, excellent police chief, good hearted friend and mentor of the hero
Fun Tidbit – I’m used to reading books with 3rd person POV. This book is written in 1st person POV, and not only that, it’s written in PRESENT TENSE. This gives it a fantastic quality of immediacy– Examples:
To add to my misery, a droplet runs down my forehead and into my eye. I don’t have a free hand to wipe the sweat away, and it burns my eye. I try to wink in the hope of clearing away the salt water.
“Also, if you make any sudden moves, I’ll have to pop you in the knee with my little friend here.”
Memorable Line – The coffee appears to have some magical power—the color flows back into her cheeks, and she looks much younger than just two minutes ago.
Cheers & Happy Reading!
