Reviewed by Jean Brickell for Readers' Favorite

"Dying for Justice" features Wade Jackson as the lead detective in what turns out to be an old case that involves the murder of Jackson's mother and father and where new information is found. The man who was accused of the crime and who is serving a life sentence for the crime believably recants. That leads to the case being reopened. The other case is that of a young woman who has been in a coma for two years and wakes up and names another police officer as the person who tried to kill her. This is the rogue police officer, Gary Bakker, who seems to be involved in some other shady and mean stuff as well. Bakker has friends on the force that are ready to cover for him. There seems to be some reason to doubt her story. Wade Jackson and his partner, Lara Evans, have their hands full with the two cases and the drama intensifies.

This is a book that will surely keep your interest. The pace is quick and the twist and turns and surprises don't stop. There is never a dull page to slow things down. L.J. Sellers has done it again with the book "Dying for Justice". In it she has written a first rate murder mystery. I had no idea till the end who the bad person was! Interesting characters, a unique plot, and first rate police officers make it a memorable story. The author has given us again a first rate read that will hold your interest till the very end.
