Remington has just survived a nightmare. She was in the house, unknown, when assassins broke in and killed her godfather, a powerful federal judge. Even worse, she can identify the killers and they are men she thought she could trust. Now she realises that her only hope of survival is to run. Luckily, her work as a forensic psychologist has prepared her to do this efficiently.
Three years later, Bella, as she is now known, has found some peace. She has run hundreds of miles and reinvented herself. She is living in a small rural town where she has found friends and contentment. That is about to change.
Rafe is an FBI agent, newly transferred to another office. As the new guy, he is given the task of trying to find some way forward on cold cases. He hits on the judge's murder and as he reads through the case file, finds a clue that brings him to the little town where Bella now lives. Even worse, his clue involves her best friend, the sheriff. His interest in the case gets back to the killers who now know exactly where to go to finish the job of killing off the only witness to their crime. Can Bella find a way to survive this new threat?
Robin Carroll has written an interesting mystery. The pace is fast enough to keep the reader's interest, without being so breakneck that it is tiring to read. The characters are portrayed realistically enough that a connection is made to them. The resolution is satisfying while not feeling overly packaged. Carroll has written eleven previous books and writes in the Christian fiction genre. While this book is recommended for readers of that genre, any mystery reader will enjoy this one.
I was given this book by Christian Review Of Books.

“Every muscle in my body stiffened, and my mouth went spitless. Chambering a round was a distinct sound, unmistakable.”
Are you hooked? I was. These are the first two lines of this riveting, suspenseful novel called Injustice for All. It’s the first book in the Justice Seekers series. Wow, what an amazing start. I’m thankful for the review copy that has introduced me to characters I instantly cared about and story that kept me up late reading.
My heart went out to the main character Remington Wyatt as she walked in on her godfather, Daniel’s tragic situation. The men don’t see her but she can hear every word they say as they plan his termination. She recognizes their voices. She can’t believe this is happening – everything she’s believed in crumbles right before her eyes!! These men were supposed to be good guys. She’s got to run so she can stay alive long enough to seek justice for Daniel’s murder.
Where do you hide when the system is corrupt and you don’t know who the good guys are? Who do you trust? No one but yourself, of course and that’s what Remington does.
At the same time Rafe Baxter confused about his relationship with God and where he’s headed in life. Rafe accepted Christ as his Savior but struggles to believe he is truly forgiven for his past. He accepted God’s unconditional love but is hung-up on being forgiven for past sin. He takes a new job so his partner can stay in the area to help with his daughters medical care. Rafe hopes that maybe this sacrifice would pay for his sins?
I enjoyed Hayden, a man who’s trying to do the right thing, praying and staying grounded when his world is rocked apart. He try’s to help his sister who’s bi-polar, and a mom who is a worry-wart. He’s so thankful God has brought him a friend to help, Bella, she’s someone he can talk to and trust. I loved the banter between characters. They have fun with one another in a good way. This author has well timed humor mixed in with the suspense! Great blend.
Bella and Rafe talk about what their hobbies are, Rafe says to Bella, “I like walks and hikes…reading? Not so much!”
Bella’s response, “How can you not love reading? It’s wonderful. An excursion, an adventure…an escape from reality.”
Bella adored reading and has a hard time grasping anyone not loving it. I could just hear Robin Caroll saying this to someone too! Bella is a passionate person with spunk I enjoyed reading about. Rafe is an FBI Agent trying to prove himself in a new office, so he picks a dead case to work on. Maybe he’d be the one to find the killer and make new friends.
This was one gripping novel from the start, and one I couldn’t put down. I loved Robin’s well timed humor mixed in with a believable spiritual thread. All this in the first book of the Justice Seekers series, I can’t wait to read the rest!!

Yes, Robin Caroll is one of my favorite authors. I enjoyed her Evil Series and her first book in this new series is just awesome!
Injustice For All is about a woman who witnessed the murder on her godfather--a federal judge. She knows who the killers are and she knows she'll be next. She flees from everything she knows and starts over in another state with a new identity.
FBI agent Rafe Baxter is a great guy who sacrifices his career and promotion for his friend and colleague. He relocates to another FBI office, but he's not easily accepted there.
Police commissioner Hayden has a lot to deal with in this book. His sister has bipolar disorder, he finds out a secret his mother kept from him for years and his best friend is in trouble. Then FBI agent Rafe comes to his town to work on a cold case and more secrets come out.
How does all those people get together in an awesome suspense? I can't tell more without spoilers, so I suggest you buy the book soon!
I read this book in a little more than a day. I really had to know how all would fit together. Robin has a lively imagination that guarantees an awesome read.
*Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for my review copy. My opinions are my own and I was not required to write a positive review.*

Oh my goodness, this story just grabs you from the first page and has you on the run with Remington until the end. The prologue alone is enough to pull you in, to draw you to Remington's side, to want to see justice done!
And Rafe - so torn between emotion and ambition, what he has to do vs. what he really wants. What great characters! Ms. Carroll gets you right under their skin.
This is one heart pounding thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat with a steel thread of faith running through it to hold on to. The plot is intricately woven and the author layers danger and secrets, love and fear, faith and forgiveness with such a light hand that you don't even realize how deep you've gotten until there's nowhere to look but up.
Inspirational romantic suspense doesn't even come close to telling you all that this book is. It's a gut wrenching thriller that will hold you captive until you reach "The End" - and then you just want more.
I can't wait for the next one!
Federal judge, Daniel Tate, lies dying in his home office, betrayed by those who help him bring criminals to justice. The killers think the judge is home alone…
Remington Wyatt, the goddaughter of Daniel Tate, was home and recognized the killers. She sets off the alarm for security before she reaches Daniel. Prior to the arrival of the police, she promises to take the contents of his safe as he breathes out his last dying wish. Out of fear for her life, she takes the contents and does the only thing that she knows to do … run! She vows, however, to find justice for his death, as this is personal.
FBI agent, Rafe Baxter, is transferred to a different Federal office due to cutbacks in staff. There, he’s assigned to work cold cases. The Daniel Tate murder is the first one assigned. What he finds in the case baffles him, and leads him to the town of Hopewell, Louisiana. He’s also baffled by the whims of women, not knowing how to handle them.
Robin Caroll, in Injustice for All, brings on the suspense from the very first page, leaving you terrified for Remington, wondering if the killers see her. I found myself almost holding my breath for her as she attempts to remain hidden. The loving touch of Remington as she holds Daniel before he expires is heart-wrenching, yet tender. I could feel the urgency in his voice as he pleads with her to take the safe contents.
Robin’s plot twists keep you glued to the book, as they spin into directions you don’t expect. The first scene is just a teaser to envelop you into the characters and scenarios. Her characters are complex, manipulative, interesting, and sometimes even delightful. The terror and danger of the circumstances keep you wondering how Robin will pull it all together. But pull it together, she did! The suspense is heart-stopping at times, causing your to stop and catch your breath! The romance almost has you laughing at times, as Rafe does not know how to conduct himself.
Robin has several themes that reverberate throughout the book: love, fear, trust, forgiveness, faith in God, and surrender. There are lessons for all to learn from.
For a great murder/suspense book, be sure to pick up Robin’s current book, Injustice For All. Check out her website listed below for a list of her other suspense-pounding books.

What happens when you witness a murder and you can't go to the authorities because the authorities are the ones that committed the murder? Remington is about to find out. She uses her expertise as an FBI psychologist to cover her trail when she runs from the law.
I love the way this story runs in two separate sections until the story catches up to itself. And when it does it doesn't slow down for a second! It's difficult to explain how amazing this story is without giving away anything important. So I want to be careful, but I still want to explain how awesome this story is and how excited I am that it is the first in a new series. And while I look forward to the next book as I believe it will be an edge of your seat type of series!
