A rogue police officer can ruin a lot more than a perfect evening out.
Kennedy Stern and her best friend Reuben drag themselves away from their grueling studies to enjoy a night off campus, but getting pulled over by a belligerent cop isn’t in either of their plans.
When the police altercation turns violent, the media notes Reuben’s dark skin and labels this instance of police brutality a hate crime. Those Kennedy trusts the most warn her not to get involved, but she owes it to Reuben to pursue justice regardless of the personal cost.
Nothing remains a secret when a frenzied media and an embarrassed police department delve into Kennedy’s and Reuben’s backgrounds. Some truths, unfortunately, grow increasingly more painful the closer they get to the surface.
This is the third book in this amazing series. I don’t use that term lightly. Every book I have read has captured me and had me on edge until the last page.
This book is rather timely with some of the issues we have faced in the United States over the last few years.
Alana isn’t afraid to deal with tough topics and give you some different perspectives to look at things.
I still really like Kennedy and her journey in her faith. She gets to be part of an amazing prayer from a police officer. It is a prayer like none she has experienced before.
I loved how Alana dealt with that. I know often times I pray and feel so good, at peace. Kennedy felt that too but soon after she falls back into how she felt before. Sometimes I feel guilty that I had this awesome prayer time and the next thing I know I am worried about life again. Kennedy is a character we can all relate too.
Another home run from Alana Terry.
