If you're fed up with a society where bad guys get excuses made for them while their victims are forgotten, blamed, or made out to be worse than the bad guys, this book is a wonderfully satisfying read. A female CIA agent investigating the sudden assassination of a turned agent before he could be questioned and a maverick investigative reporter obsessed with the failure of the justice system in several cases of rape and murder, where the criminals are back on the street after a mere slap of the hand only to meet violent execution-style deaths, become attracted to each other, never dreaming that the two cases they're pursuing are closely related.

The message isn't real subtle (even if you agree with it, though I tend more to lock em up and throw away the key than, well, the punishments meted out in this book; one scene gives whole new meaning to the phrase "run it up the flagpole and see who salutes"), and the attraction between the main characters wasn't very convincing at first, though it did develop to the point where I was really rooting for Annie and Dylan to work things out. But the ending peril and confrontation is a can't-put-down nailbiter which kept me up way too late one night. An exciting, suspenseful, larger-than-life ride.
