Fatal Judgment

By: Irene Hannon

In this book we are introduced to Federal Judge Elizabeth, Liz, Michaels who has just been through a terrible tragedy and worse her very life could be in danger. She begins to wonder if it is something that she is doing wrong since she has suffered through a similar tragedy not to long ago. Liz must learn to trust in her instincts again and to trust her life in the hands of U.S Marshal Jake Taylor who is a friend of her deceased husband.

Jake Taylor has just returned home from Iraq when he is called up on a protection detail for Liz Michaels. He must first overcome his resentment in the part that he believes that Liz played in the death of his friend. As he spend time with Liz he begins to realize that what he thought was truth might not have been and that he really did not take the time to get to know Liz or even to listen to her side of what happened. Can Jake over come is misconceptions about Liz and protect her from the madman that is out to kill her. Pick up this book and find out.

This book was a definite page turner and a nail bitter from beginning to end. I found it very hard to put it down because I just had to know what happened next. This story grabs you from the very beginning and doesn't turn you loose until the very end. I loved the growth of Jack and Liz from the beginning to the end of the story. Jack must learn to put his personal feelings aside in the beginning of the story to do his job but he begins to realize that he might have been wrong about Liz on many levels. Like many of us he judges Liz based off of what he was told by one person instead of getting to know her himself. In the end he realizes what a truly generous and caring person she is. We all should take the time to get to know people before we judge them by what others think or even what we see.

Available January 2011 at your favorite bookseller from Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
