Fatal Judgment picks up with the story of U.S. Marshal Jake Taylor. He’s been in Iraq on a special mission and now he’s returned home to St. Louis. He’s felt a need to return to his family since his sister was hurt in an auto accident.
Before he can even go home and change he’s assigned a new mission—protecting his deceased best friend’s wife. The one he felt didn’t treat his friend right. Her life is in danger so he will do his job. He finds an attraction growing between them every time something happens to her.
I love reading books that take place in my old home town and this one is a fast-page turner. Hannon’s characters Jake Taylor and Liz Michaels quickly become real people to readers.
Here’s the back cover blurb.
U.S. Marshal Jake Taylor has seen plenty of action during his years in law enforcement. But he’d rather go back to Iraq than face his next assignment: protection detail for federal judge Liz Michaels. His feeling toward the coldhearted workaholic haven’t warmed in the five years since she drove her husband—and Jake’s best friend—to despair and possible suicide.
As the danger mounts and Jake gets to know Liz better, he’s forced to revise his opinion of her. And when it becomes clear that an unknown enemy may want her dead, the stakes are raised. Because now both her life—and his heart—are in danger.
