Beyond Justice By Cara Putman




Hayden is on track to become the youngest partner in her prestigious DC law firm . . .
If the case she’s just been handed doesn’t destroy her first.
Hayden McCarthy knows firsthand the pain that follows 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 Wesley, 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 indicate she should close the case. But how can she, when justice is still just beyond her reach?

Since the time I could read Nancy Drew, I have wanted to write mysteries. In 2005 I attended a book signing at my local Christian bookstore. The rest, as they say, is history. There I met Colleen Coble. With prompting from my husband, I shared my dream with Colleen. Since those infamous words, I've been writing award-winning books with the count currently at 25.

In addition to writing, I am a homeschooling mom of four, attorney, lecturer at a Big Ten university, active in women's ministry, and all around crazy woman. Crazy about God, my husband, and my kids. I graduated with honors from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (Go Huskers!), George Mason Law School, and Purdue University's MBA program. You can learn more about my books at http://www.caraputman.com. And if you'd like a copy of my legal suspense novella, Dying for Love, simply connect with me here (http://www.caraputman.com/contact/) , and I'll send you the link.

I just added Legal thriller to my must read list. I just added Cara Putman to my must read list.
This was a very good legal thriller. It was not predictable, it was a very well written book.
The characters were very well thought out. Putnam know what she was writing about it was not a bunch of  made up dribble. 
This was one of those books I call an all nighter. You can not put it down you are wondering who was the good guys and who were the bad guys from the beginning almost. You have to keep reading it its so addicting not like any other book I have read in a long time.
Gripping and addicting is what this book is.
I gave this book 5 stars and I HIGHLY recommend it. Look out this is not what you expected.
I received  this book from the publisher for review. A favorable was not required and all views expressed are my own.

    1. If it doesn't, you might be able to ask. Many librarians have a mechanism for doing that.

  9. Mary, I am more of a chick-lit and Amish and non fiction girl myself. But your review has me wondering if this one would blow me away and open me up to new thrillers. I'm going to go order it and I will let you know what I think about it.
