Tough Justice: Part 4 of 8

This is the fourth installment in the Harlequin Special Release series: Tough Justice.

In “Trapped”, Gail Barrett takes the reins as Lara deals with the psychological side effects of her undercover operation, and the obvious connection to the case they are working, which is causing her to carry a heavy load of guilt.

Although Victoria’s daughter survived her ordeal, the kidnappers are still at large, which is the focal point in this story.

Although Lara tried to compartmentalize her relationship with Nick in the last chapter, this installment shows some.. er… interesting developments, and we also learn a bit more about Nick’s background.

Some big progress was made in the case, but the Moretti is still pulling the strings and a baby’s life is still at risk, which is the what has Lara one high alert and in deep turmoil.

This chapter has some wild mood swings with Lara’s deeply troubled psyche, Nick’s troubled past, and Moretti’s continued mind games, but there is a also a huge break in the case, which added a sense of euphoria to the story. But, don’t get caught up in the celebrations. A battle has been won, but the war is far from over.

Another nice installment in this e-series, which I have been enjoying immensely. Remember, these must be read in order and are part of an eight -part series. This is for fans of crime stories and romantic suspense.
