A beautiful meld of romance and crime fiction, The Good Fight by Dan E. Hendrickson is an engaging story that follows one young woman’s fight to keep her family interests away from deadly enemies. Commander Jacob Edwards has always been a hero to his daughter, thanks to his bravery in responding to a pirate attack on a cruise ship, and that was years ago. Now, after a tragedy strikes his family, Danielle believes that by moving away from the family business and focusing on her dance company she could leave behind memories of the tragedy, but she soon finds out that there is a conspiracy that could ruin her family. And Danielle is not one who lets anything come between her and her family, no matter what it is. So, she is poised to fight back. But is she well-armed?
The novel starts with a backstory, exploring events surrounding the life of Jacob, and the narrative is done in a strong third person narrative, shifting between Jacob and Danielle. The shifts between past and present are well done and this creates the suspense that holds the reader’s attention throughout. Dan E. Hendrickson has a singular gift for storytelling and he weaves backstories into the narrative in a seamless manner, without distracting readers in the least. The prose is clean and the author seems to have a great sense of setting as well. The Good Fight is a powerful story told around the importance of family, with sophisticated characters and very strong plot elements.
