Austin-based Detective Jason Scarsdale is grieving the loss of his wife when he becomes entangled in solving three murders. Along the way, he inadvertently strikes up a friendship with crime analyst Dani Mueller, who has seen her own share of tragedy and has just one thing on her mind: vengeance. When Scarsdale is assigned to investigate the death of a man he arrested, he begins to uncover new evidence indicating the man is innocent of the crime; however, the investigation is stalled by one of the Detective’s own corrupt colleagues, and by Mueller, who witnessed the murder but is silenced by a dark secret. In a breathtaking series of twists and turns, the real killer abducts Scarsdale’s beloved daughter and Mueller is kidnapped. Scarsdale is faced with the ethical dilemma of his career and his life, and is forced to rethink the value of playing by the rules.
It took me a while to get through this book, as I haven't had a lot of free time on my hands lately, 15 mins here and there,. I tried reading this book and another at the same time and now I know why I don't read two books at a time, I can't keep the stories straight, I like to devote 100% of my attention to what I’m reading and in this case trying to multi task was a huge failure. With that said I really like Brenham's style of writing, I enjoyed the character development, the interactions between the characters, and the relationships between them. The characters were believable and well written. I am looking forward to reading more of Alan Brenham's work. I am definitely planning on picking up Price of Justice again for a reread when I have two days to devote to nothing but enjoying a good book. Well done.
