A Guardians of Justice Mystery by Irene Hannon
Review: When a social worker begins to receive threatening calls at night, she turns to her brothers for assistance in Deadly Pursuit, the second novel of romantic suspense in the Guardians of Justice series by Irene Hannon.
Alison Taylor has poured her life into her work, following an automobile accident that resulted in a badly broken leg that still hurts and her subsequent break-up with her boyfriend. Her brother Cole talks her into a blind date with his new partner, Mitch Morgan, a police detective. The two hit it off, but Mitch is soon professionally involved in her life when Alison begins receiving calls from an unidentified caller. Mitch thinks it is either someone with a very sick sense of humor or more ominously someone with a vendetta. Alison's job requires her to get involved in parental disputes over children, and though she tries not to take sides, inevitably someone blames her for the outcome. Alison tries to play down any risk to her personal safety, but someone, indeed, is pursuing her …
Hannon has brought together four interesting and likeable characters in this exceptional mystery: Alison, her two brothers, law enforcement brothers Jake and Cole, and Mitch. The storyline takes some unexpected turns — evil knows no gender boundaries — but also plays up the strength of faith, belief and love that close friends and family share. The books in this series and the author's previous "Heroes of Quantico" series are highly recommended.
