Haunting Justice is a work of mystery fiction penned by author Linda M. Williams, and is one of the JJ Gilbert Mysteries series. The central focus is on JJ herself, who works by day as a photographer but also has a calling in mediumship. After being tasked with the unpleasant job of taking snaps at her former high school bully’s wedding, JJ notices signals that a bad spirit may be following the bullying Karen Quinn around. Though Karen is, at first, not keen to co-operate, JJ perseveres and becomes determined to root out the source of this dark energy and find out why Karen is its target. What she discovers leads her into a dark mystery that’s way over her head.
Combining the sleuth and paranormal genres works really well for author Linda M. Williams, whose novel also fits the chick lit genre for its quirky and enjoyable female heroine. JJ Gilbert is a woman on a mission, though admittedly she’s only just finding her feet in the world of investigation, and this makes her a very likeable and endearing heroine with whom we can unravel the mystery, rather than being some aloof expert. I enjoyed the emotional quality of the story and the web of relationships trailing back to high school, and although Karen was a kind of villain at first, she was well developed and none of the characters were stereotypical. The plot regarding the dark spirit was well resolved, tense and exciting, and overall I think that Haunting Justice has everything you could want from a semi-cosy paranormal mystery read.
