DON’T KEEP SILENT is the final installment in the Uncommon Justice series, and for me, it was the best by far!
Rae Burke is an investigative reporter who will stop at nothing when pursuing a story. But when her sister-in-law goes missing, the stakes are raised to an even higher level. So much so, she reaches out to Liam McKade, the DEA agent who almost lost his life saving hers.
Trying to find himself, Liam McKade returns to his family ranch in Wyoming, but it isn’t peace that he finds. Rae Burke, of all people, seeks him out and asks for his help. Furious that she has the nerve to insert herself into his world, he tells her to leave. But knowing the danger she is toying with, he has no other option but to help.
What starts out as one dead-end after another, soon breaks open into a spiderweb of heinous activity involving: sex trafficking, drugs, and the dark web. Lives are in danger. Time is running out. And even though Rae and Liam feel an undeniable force pulling them together, they both struggle with the idea of endangering each other in their pursuit of the truth.
After reading all three installments in the Uncommon Justice series, I feel DON’T KEEP SILENT had the most action, twists and turns that were unexpected but credible, and a hero and heroine with insecurities and flaws that made them relatable and human. Rae isn’t used to someone else calling the shots, so her split decisions were completely in character even though they drove Liam crazy. And Liam’s protective nature wasn’t over-bearing, he just acted on his instincts . . . to keep the woman he loved (even though he didn’t know it yet) safe. At times, the integral plot and the number of players was difficult to keep straight, but it didn’t slow down the momentum. Though the ratio of suspense to romance was more on a 70/30 scale, a little less than I am looking for, it still kept my attention to the very end.
I received an advance copy of this book from Revell in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
