Some words that come to mind after reading Rough Justice.
Fun but deadly. (Carol’s character brings the fun).
A fast read.
Lorne makes a brilliant protagonist and her family set up feels real. She has a teen daughter, a partner who works as a PI and a psychic neighbour, Carol. She was both relatable and likeable.
With Rough Justice, I feel with the autumnal nights approaching, this would be fab to read on a dark windy night – nothing wrong with making sure the atmosphere is right! There’s no denying that I’m a horror/supernatural fan and this overlap of crime and supernatural gave me a real treat. I loved the other-worldly interventions and Carol made a top vessel.
As for pace, this was a fast read in which I was clenching my fists and hoping that justice would be served.
Rough Justice is number ten in a series. I felt it could easily be read as a standalone. The story is self contained and the small nuggets of backstory that are laced through the book give the reader the little bit of background that is needed.
Thank you for reading.
