Hayden McCarthy is on track to become the youngest partner in her prestigious D.C. law firm . . . if the case she’s just been handed doesn’t destroy her first.
Hayden McCarthy knows firsthand the pain when justice is not served. It’s why she became an attorney and why she’s so driven in her career. When she’s assigned a wrongful death case against the government, she isn’t sure if it’s the lucky break she needs to secure a partnership—or an attempt to make sure she never gets there.
Further complicating matters is Andrew, her roommate’s distractingly attractive cousin. But Andrew’s father is a Congressman, and Hayden’s currently taking on the government. Could the timing be any worse?
The longer she keeps the case active, the higher the stakes become. Unknown enemies seem determined to kill the case—or her. Logic and self-preservation would indicate she should close the case. But how can she, when justice is still just beyond her reach?
Hayden McCarthy is assigned a seemingly impossible case, representing the family of a young man apparently murdered in a juvenile facility for immigrants. However, it was assigned to her because the partners know she can win the seemingly hopeless cases. But the deeper she digs, the more alarming the case becomes.
Her roommate, Emilie Wesley, left a legal career to become an expose journalist and decides to help Hayden unravel the mysteries, thus getting tangled up in the conspiracy.
Andrew, Emilie’s cousin, champion to the underdogs, works at a community center helping integrate young immigrants into the community and is fast becoming a charming distraction to Hayden.
In addition to Hayden, Miss Putman has two casts of characters; one set has a diverse mixture of interesting, faith-filled and compassionate natures, and the other set is more cold-blooded, cruel and sadistic than one can imagine. She does an exemplary job of weaving the characters and their interactions in ways that leave you holding your breath, wondering what will happen next.
Beyond Justice is a hair-raising novel, rife with surprising turns and plot developments that ensure the reader is kept engaged throughout the entire story.
Cara Putman has written an edge of your seat suspense story, full of intrigue and faith. She has taken her experiences as an attorney and turned them into a gripping novel.
I received a copy of Beyond Justice from The Fiction Guild. However, I was under no obligation to post a review.
Beyond Justice, due to the nature of the story, has many instances of violence.
