Beyond Justice {Cara Putman}

beyond justice cara putman
Hayden McCarthy is on track to become the youngest partner in her prestigious D.C. law firm . . . if the case she's just been handed doesn't destroy her first.

Hayden McCarthy knows firsthand the pain when justice is not served. It's why she became an attorney and why she's so driven in her career. When she's handed 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. She keeps the case alive through sheer determination and more than a little creativity, but then she's fired by a partner with a vendetta.

Further complicating matters, Hayden keeps finding herself completely distracted by Andrew, her roommate's cousin. But his father is a Congressman and she'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 see either the case—or her—die. Should she fight alone for the dead young man by launching her own unfinanced firm, or abandon the case in order to save her own life?

My Thoughts:
Just wow!

The characters in this book are simply amazing. Hayden, Andrew, and all their friends and acquaintances have such a story and a background that seems to fit so naturally as you read this book. I felt a connection to each one of them as they interacted throughout the events in this story. There were 'good guys' and 'bad guys' but I seemed to like them all for various reasons. I thought the character development was spot on.

The plot in this book is very complex and draws you in completely. With each turn of events, I found myself amazed at the direction the story was taking. I could not want to see what happened, all the while covering my eyes at the dangers that seemed to be lurking for each of the characters.

This book had an ending I was not expecting at all. It was exciting, heart-racing action that made a perfect ending for all involved. I thought it was a great way to wrap up the case Hayden was working on.

If you enjoy fast-paced suspense with legal drama thrown in, this is the book for you!
