About this Book
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 . . .

This is one of those stories that will scare you while it entertains you. As I think about the characters I have to admit the main character, Hannah, got on my nerves early in the book. She was a little too high strung for my taste, but as the story progressed she grew on me and I appreciated her character. She really did have a lot of reasons to be high strung. She also developed as a person as she realized she had to trust God to get her out of the mess she found herself in. My second favorite character was Aunt Margie. Although she doesn’t play a major role in the story she was special part, as she showed her trust in Hannah and her willingness to take chances.
The story itself was everything you expect from Brandilyn Collins. The action came fast and furious from the opening pages until the very end. As she shares in the author notes at the beginning of the book even though this is a fictional story, the idea came from reports of what could happen. As you read the events unfold it is more than a little unnerving, especially considering I live on the West Coast where the story is based.
If you enjoy Brandilyn Collins’ Seatbelt Suspense you’ll enjoy this story. If you are new to Brandilyn Collins this is a great book to get an idea of what her stories are like.

What Else I’ve Been Reading
Besides finishing Dark Justice I’ve finished Sister Chicks Do the Hula, by Robin Jones Gunn. It’s a cute story that made me laugh. I’ll be doing a full review and give away on Wednesday. This month the ACFW Book club is discussing Roping the Wrangler by Lacy Williams. I won a copy so I’ve been reading it. It’s a historical love story. It’s been better than just okay, not great for me, only because love stories aren’t my favorites. Plus I really want to get started on Dee Henderson’s newest book, Unspoken. I’m excited to say I have a copy of that book to give away when the time comes. If it’s typical Dee Henderson that will be the give away for the following Wednesday.
