Kelly Warren’s father died and his file was closed as a suicide. Kelly has some new evidence that she thinks proves that her father’s death wasn’t a suicide but a murder. Detective Cole Taylor is assigned the reopened case since his coworker who worked it is on vacation for two weeks. Kelly doesn’t have anybody in her life to support her anymore that her father is gone and Cole realizes his brother and sister are very supportive in his life, so he hurts for Kelly about this. When Cole’s coworker comes back into town to take over Kelly’s case he is torn. He tries to think of how he will he be able to spend time with Kelly now that the case is back in his hands.
At first the evidence from Kelly that she thinks shows that her father did not commit suicide didn't seem like it was very relevant to me. As the story progressed, I could see just how that evidence laid the foundation for reopening her father’s case. The mystery of the situation seemed to move forward step-by-step throughout the novel and unraveled a lot of suspense in the process, causing me to not get lost in the storyline and stay interested in the story. It is the third book in the Guardians of Justice series. It focuses on a new set of characters, which makes it a great read as stand-alone novel as well.
