January 6, 2023
Madison’s quest took her into the bowels of a Mexican Cartel, and she learned first hand how the cartels recruit and train their victims.
A young girl is discovered raped and murdered just outside of Magnolia Bluff, Texas.
State Conservation Police Officer, Madison Jackson is stunned to her core.
The sight of that battered and bruised child on a stainless-steel slab in the morgue sends Madison on a perilous trip south of the border into the heart of the deadly Mexican cartel country.
Madison is kidnapped.
Will she make it out alive?
Review by Linda Pirtle:
Texas rarely experiences low temperatures, the kind that makes you want to curl up in front of the fireplace with a good book, a cup of tea, and your faithful dog snuggled next to you. When the weatherman predicted below freezing temperatures, I knew exactly what I’d be doing.
I turned on my Kindle and ordered JUSTICE, Kelly Marshall’s Book 8 of the Magnolia Bluff Crime Chronicles, a series written by a group of writers who call themselves The Underground Authors.
I was ready.
Everything was in place.
I opened the book and read the first two pages. “Nice,” I thought. Another cozy mystery with a woman sleuth. Boy, was I wrong!
“Cozy” is not the word I’d use to describe Marshall’s story. The words, “La chica esta muerta,” set the stage for a riveting, page-turning crime story about human trafficking.
State Conservation Police Officer Madison Jackson is carrying on business as usual around Ink Lake when she meets a teenaged boy who informs her that the girl is dead. The girl, a mere child, had been beaten, raped, strangled, and thrown away as if she were a piece of garbage.
How could this kind of brutality occur in a peaceful town like Magnolia Bluff? The question haunted Officer Madison Jackson. She was determined to find the guilty culprit.
Her quest took her into the bowels of a Mexican Cartel. She learned first hand how the cartels recruit and train their victims.
Justice is a quick read – or should I say – it’s a book you won’t put down until the last page.
Forget the cup of tea.
Forget about the nice warm fire.
Forget about your dog’s snuggling with you.
As you read Marshall’s book, your anger at man’s inhumane treatment of the young and innocent children unfortunate enough to be so devalued that they become mere pawns in a rich man’s scheme for more wealth will warm you up.
