If I’d had any idea what those words would mean to me, to my mother and daughter, I’d have fled California without looking back.

While driving a rural road, Hannah Shire and her aging mother, who suffers from dementia, stop to help a man at the scene of a car accident. The man whispers mysterious words in Hannah’s ear. Soon people want to kill Hannah and her mother for what they “know.” Even law enforcement may be involved.

The two women must flee for their lives. But how does Hannah hide her confused mother? Carol just wants to listen to her pop music, wear her favorite purple hat, and go home. And if they turn to Hannah’s twentyseven- year-old daughter, Emily, for help, will she fall into danger as well?

Pressed on all sides, Hannah must keep all three generations of women in her family alive. Only then does she learn the threat is not just to her loved ones, but the entire country . . .

If you'd like to read the first chapter of Dark Justice, HERE.

My thoughts...

What a chilling tale of terrorism and how easily cyber attacks can take place and the damage that can be done. This book is so realistic, the characters are the best. Hannah and her mother are on their way home after a few days of relaxing in Raleigh when they come upon an accident. While trying to help the elderly gentleman he keeps telling them things they don't understand except for "don't tell anyone". Hannah's mother is in a confused state, suffering from dementia yet ends up being a help.

Arriving home Hannah discovers a flash drive in her pocket that doesn't belong to her. While looking at the images on the computer two FBI Agents show up at her door asking questions. Uneasy, she asks them to leave, Later she will learn that they are not FBI and that her life as well as her mother's is in danger.

This is one of Collins' best books, she is a very talented suspense writer. Her writing style puts you right in the middle of all the action!

I received a copy of this book free from B&H Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
