When life gets tough…
Desperation seeps in.
When Jonathan Giles has nowhere left to turn in life, he commits suicide. How can a fifteen-year-old boy be driven to take such drastic action to solve his problems?
DI Lorne Warner is about to tackle the most heart-wrenching, nonsensical case of her career.
With the suicide statistics among teenagers rising on her patch, DCI Roberts asks Lorne to investigate the reasons behind the victims taking their own lives.
Will the shocking truth Lorne and her tenacious team uncover give the grieving families the justice they deserve?
This book immediately starts with a short, sharp shock and it doesn’t stop! The race against time to find the mystery message sender is immediately on. From the minute you’ve read a couple of pages, it is obvious that it’s going to be a heartbreaker of a story.
Toxic Justice is book 18 in the Justice series. It worked very well as a stand-alone but as with any series, I think readers will feel a better connection with main character, Lorne, if they have read others. Saying that, the story is complete and if you just fancied this title, you’re enjoyment of the story would not be compromised.
The author bravely tackles some dark themes. Bullying and teen suicide are the main focuses of the story. The novel also made me think deeply about the power of words and how important it is to treat each other kindly. It also shows how lack of justice is prevalent when it comes to bullying amongst children at school. A deeply sad read.
Thanks so much for reading. 💟💟💟
