Review on my blog (12/27):

Dark Tide was a suspenseful read that held my attention. I loved the characters so much - Derrick and his siblings had such great camaraderie and there were several times they had me chuckling because of their ribbing. ;) I also thought the way Derrick and Sophie, Gina's niece, got along was so cute!

The mystery was really good and I had no idea who the guilty party was, bu

I just finished the last book in the Justice Agency series, Dark Tide, by Susan Sleeman. Each book got better and better in the series because I was able to learn more about the family, the siblings, and their lives. Therefore, even though I felt like I fit in with them right from the start, with Book #1, Double Exposure, each book brought me closer and closer to the heart of each sibling and therefore, closer to the family as a whole.
Ms. Sleeman has a way with words. She writes in such a way t
I am so sad to see the Justice series end. I loved each and everyone of these books. Susan Sleeman is so talented, drawing you into the story, making you feel like your part of the Justice Family. This story was no exception another great spine tingling mystery. The suspense in this story was often palpable, I found myself holding my breath wondering what was going to happen next. I was wrong about who I thought was behind it, and I LOVED it! Very unpredictable, great story. I still think since ...more

Now Gina really needs the Justice Agency. She especially needs Derrick Justice.

This is the 5th book in The Justice Agency series and my first read of Susan Sleeman's work. I had not read the previous books about the Justice siblings but this book was not difficult to follow as a stand-alone read. Gina calls her ex-boyfriend Derrick when she is almost killed by an unknown assailant. Although Gina broke up with Derrick when they were college sweethearts (because he could not make a long-term commitment), she knows she can turn to him for help. I love second-chance-at-romance ...more
Dark Tide by Susan Sleeman in the final installment of The Justice Agency series and does not disappoint. In this book we once again visit the brothers and sisters that make up the Justice Agency, this time Derrick Justice is the star when the flame from his past who broke his heart shows up desperate for help. A killer is after her and she has a baby to protect.

I really enjoyed Dark Tide and am sad to see the series end. This book held my attention from beginning to end, which has been difficul

Another fantastic Christian suspense novel!

Mission: Protect Baby

After catching a quick glimpse of the evidence her brother had gathered, the same criminals are after her and her baby niece. And Gina’s only hope is the man she left behind.

I've read every single one of The Justice Agency Series books and have loved every one. Dark Tide is no different. Derrick and Gina's story touched my heart -- making it beat faster during those inevitable scary times and making it slow in awe as they worked out their feelings for one another.

I love happily-ever-afters, and this is one series I will miss. I have come to "know" the Justice brothers and sisters, and each story has touched me in a unique way.

As Gina knew for sure her brother was murdered (even if the police does not take her claim seriously), she turns to her old college boyfriend, Derrick Justice, a former cop who with his siblings run the Justice Agency, for help. Gina and Derrick both have to deal with the grave danger Gina and her infant niece (orphaned as a result of her brother's death) are in, as well as their feelings for each other--neither wants to be hurt again. This one is the last of the Justice Agency series, but not r ...more

I have enjoyed reading all 5 of the Justice Agency books. 3 brothers and two sisters after the death of their parents all decide to come and give up their work in different law backgrounds to find their parents killers. They decide to open their own agency. All 5 of the children were adopted and are close to each other.

Dark Tide is the last of the single Justices. This is Derrick's story and his old college girl friend Gina.

I really like the characters how they all pull together to help o

The last of the Justice Agency siblings, Derrick Justice, has been running from commitment almost his entire life. When his ex-girlfriend Gina calls him for help because someone is after her he doesn't think twice about running to her rescue. Protecting Gina and her brother's daughter Sophia causes Derrick to once again have to face his commitment issues. Will he be able to focus on protecting Gina without letting his feelings for her get in the way?

Dark Tide is the last book in the Justice Agency series. I enjoyed meeting this family and will miss reading about their experiences. In this book, Derrick Justice is asked to help his ex-girlfriend Gina and his baby niece who is an orphan. Derrick is still in love with Gina. Derrick gets help from the rest of the Justice family and Author Susan Sleeman wraps up all the stories in this last book.

1. Double Exposure
2. Dead Wrong
3. No Way Out

I have not read the first 4, but I do have them, and why I read Dark Tide

Angela Wilson
I haven't been disappointed with any Love Inspired Suspense line. Dark Tide is fast, gripping, with characters and a story that draw you in. It has a great message about putting that past behind you, balanced with a well-paced mystery. It is the final in the Justice Family series. I want to read the others and look forward to more from this author!
I have loved this entire JUSTICE AGENCY series!! I am like you Susan, I hate to see the end of the series, but I am sure you will come out with another series just as good as, if not better than, this one!!! Thanks so much for sharing your awesome God given talent of fantastic stories with us!! May God continue His blessings on you!! Looking forward to your next book!!
This is the first book in The Justice Agency series I have read, but I definitely will be reading the others in the series. It is a book filled with suspense, mystery, action and romance, and certainly kept me turning pages until the final pages. It is a wonderful read and one I certainly recommend.

#5 The Justice Agency

A great closing story to the Justice family. I've enjoyed spending time with the 5 siblings & watching them each eventually get a happily ever after.

#1 Double Exposure by Susan Sleeman #2 Dead Wrong by Susan Sleeman #3 No Way Out by Susan Sleeman #4 Thread of Suspicion by Susan Sleeman #5 Dark Tide by Susan Sleeman
The Justice Agency comes to a climatic end in Dark Tide. Take an aunt protecting her niece, a villain chasing them who doesn't hesitate to kill anyone in his way equals a true page turner. Susan Sleeman is a fantastic romantic suspense author who does not dwell too long on the romance, but has plenty of suspense.
Susan's books are somewhat typical Christian romance. However, the explosion in her work leaves you gasping. Another excellent recommendation.
Cathy Daniel
Action packed from page one pulling you into the story along with characters you really care about make this book a winner!
This book had me wondering who had done it. I was on the edge of my seat.
Melenia Gibson
The age discrepancy bothered me quite a bit but otherwise a good read
Tammy Henley
I'd never read a book by this author before, but it was very good and I really liked it.
Typical "Love Inspired Suspense"/Mills & Boon Romance. Easy reading.
It's always a sad time when one of the series you enjoy comes to an end. Dark Tide is the last book in the series The Justice Agency. Derrick is in the spotlight in this one as a former love resurfaces and needs help from the Justice siblings. This was a nice close to a nice series.

All five of these books have been great. Full of suspense and action. Loved getting to know the characters. I've enjoyed all of them and now that it's time for the Justice family to move on I'm looking forward to the next series from this author!
