it was amazing

Janice Williams' hunt for pedophiles is more than a job, it is her obsession. But limited by protocol and regulation, she is unable to keep up with a vigilante who vows to avenge children in ways Janice cannot. Now forced to protect those she has convicted, Janice’s resolve is further conflicted when it becomes clear the murderer has an inside connection.

The sensitive topic initially made me unsure about this book, but I loved every minute of this read and highly recommend the novel. The narrative keeps primary focus on Janice's investigation and the unknown vigilante's hunt, without treading into uncomfortable ground. It is a commentary about Candandian law and a fantastic turn on a thrilling man-hunt.

Beautifully written, In Defense of Innocence is a wild ride with multiple climaxes that keeps the pages turning. A masterful use of changing narration point-of-view furthers the storytelling and challenges the reader’s allegiance.

Who will you root for, those who enforce the law or the one who accomplishes what the law cannot?
