Publisher's Summary

From Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melinda Leigh comes the first thrilling novella in the Rogue Justice series.

When Detective Seth Harding responds to shots being fired, he faces a familiar sight: a double homicide. However, he is shocked to find a young boy chained in the basement. The terrified child refuses to speak, but Seth knows he is the key to something sinister.

Reluctantly, Seth calls the only social worker he trusts with the traumatized boy - his wife. Carly is recovering from her own trauma suffered on the job, but she can't turn away from this case, not from another child in trouble. With torrential rain bearing down, threatening to isolate their little town in a killer flood, Seth and Carly know the best way to keep the boy safe from danger is to take him back to their farm.

But danger is as relentless as the storm. And it's following them all the way home.

New novella from Melinda Leigh

Melinda Leigh follows her four Rogue River Novellas series with the first book in her new Rogue Justice series. The two series have exactly the same characters and the same setting, so Rogue Justice series is merely a continuation of Rogue River. The novellas are set in the real sparsely populated Rogue River and Rogue Valley region of southern Oregon. However, Rogue County and the name of the small town are fictitious. The protagonists are married couple Seth and Carly Harding. Carly comes from the leading family in the county where her dad was sheriff and her brothers are in law enforcement. Her husband is a detective. Her mom is the stabilizing force in the family and in the county.

The series are very family focused, but the crimes are real and horrible. Think of the two series as solid police procedurals with strong elements of mystery and suspense, and also with a strong family flavor. I enjoy Melinda Leigh's Rogue novellas and recommend these 3 hour audio books. Kate Rudd does a fine job of narrating.

Poor!

This book started off with a really good opening; interesting ,edgy..making you want to read more but the ending was so disappointing. I expected so much but it went down like a lead balloon in 12 chapters. A really sappy ending.. which made no sense after having developed the characters that far.

Started off slow...

The narrator was wonderful. I honestly had to keep coming back to it. Once I gave it a chance I was somewhat entertained.

Very short story

Could of been a good story but it was so short all the action packed. One thing after another. I like this author. Great reader. But this one was a miss for me.

prepare to not put it down.

I was hooked mmediately. The story starts with a surge of electricity and keeps it coming. Anyone from a small town will recognize how well the author painted the portrait of a small town and the people who call it home.

Good book

Really like this author. This one was really good, unfortunately I did not care for the reader. Her other books I have read had really good readers. Something about her voice when she changed characters.

Performance was horrible!

Narrator was simply awful. I could barely get through what was a decent story. Terrible!
