Overview

In this searing debut thriller, a detective on the edge must stop a vicious killer, even as he mends the emotional scars in his own life.
Jason Jerrard didn't become Virginia City's finest detective by building stable romantic relationships. And it's beginning to show — he's got a new girlfriend who doesn't know what she's in for, and an ex-wife determined to do whatever it takes to get him back. But the real nightmare in Jerrard's life is the murderer-rapist who's turning Virginia City into a living hell. Brutal and elusive, this is a killer whose taunting has made it personal with Jerrard. And taking him down might just require more than Jerrard has to give.
Passion, jealousy, courage and violence come to a head in Love & Justice, a thrilling new novel from a promising young literary voice.

I don't know who wrote these reviews but this is NOT the book I have just thrown away. It's horrible...don't buy it. The story is useless, the writing is stilted and annoying and the plot does NOT even exist. Please at least do the read sample first....and it gets much worse after that. UGH!? Kat

(Not sure if my first review was posted). This was an excellent book to read. The main character, Jason, is a smooth talking detective who has a way with the ladies. He is humorous, bold and daring, and will keep you on the edge of your seat as he races against time to stop a perverted and deadly serial killer. This book leaves you wanting to read more after the first page. Excellent read! Well done, Mr. Johnson.

Detective Jason Jerrad is a smooth talking detective who will take you on one heck of an adventure as he charms the ladies and battles the evil forces that stalk the streets. He can be a bit extreme in the way he handles matters and is hated by many of his peers (pure jealousy), but as a reader, you will love him! This book will keep you on the edge of your seat while wanting to keep turning the pages for more. Well done, Rique Johnson!

Jason Jerard is a man who exudes excitement! Although fighting personal demons and possibly a bit 'over the top,' his work ethic and drive are unquestionable.

Jason is the bomb! This is my first time reading a suspense/mystery series. The first few pages make you go 'WHOA' what am I getting myself into? The author had to bring it raw inorder for us to understand what type of serial killer they are dealing with. Jason is a very sharp detective that most of his co-workers hate on. His style of investigating is edgy with much drama at work and in his personal life. The women he encounters are in for the ride of their lives. This book will keep you in suspense, make you go hmm... and what will happen in the next series. The title fits the book perfectly. 'Reading Is What We Do' Newport News, VA 'Wendy'

Rique Johnson is an excellent writer and Love and Justice is a great book. I fell in love with the main character,Jason from the start. I rarely ever read suspense because I'm chicken but once I started reading this book, I couldn't put it down. I like the surprise ending also. It was a good twist. I can't wait to read his next book.

Love and Justice is a wonderful and stimulating mixture of steamy romance, suspense, fast-paced action and mystery. Johnson does an outstanding job of drawing out every possible emotion a person can have in just one book. This is a definite must-read novel.

I read the book in one day; it was that captivating. I couldn't put it down. As a law enforcement professional myself, the story had credibility, logic and ingenunity. And then there was 'the twist'. I was very impressed and am anxiously looking forward to the next book from this very talented writer.

If you love books with mystery, romance, sex and surprising endings, I recommend this book to you. I couldn't put it down until I finished the entire book. Hope there's a sequel Rique.

The story was extremely interesting and well written. I was as caught up in the romance with Sasha as with the murder mystery. However, I am disappointed with Barnes and Noble and other book stores with their placement of this work in the 'Black Interest' section. I think they are limiting this author's exposure and income with this practice. The book is clearly a mystery with the only thing 'Black' about it being the author's picture on the back. If I am in the mood for a good mystery, I certainly don't go to the 'Black Interest' section to find it. I hope this is not Barnes and Noble's regular practice!!!

For months now, I have been reading the classics, from The Count of Monte Cristo to The Three Musketeers. No modern-day book¿s back cover had captured my attention until Love & Justice. Filled with action, this book is complete with suspense, romance, courage and revenge. This fast-paced novel revolves around the life of Jason Jerrard, Virginia City¿s ¿Boy Wonder¿ detective. Suspended Detective Jerrard literally collides with Sasha, his future new girlfriend, while in pursuit of a would-be car thief. As their relationship begins to flourish, Jason¿s crusade to catch the murderer-rapist who has been plaguing the city puts a slight strain on the new relationship. Then there is Julie, the ex-wife, who desperately wants Jason back and vainly goes through extreme measures to accomplish her desire. Love & Justice contains all of the elements I need in a book to keep my attention. I highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy overflowing-with-romance crime thrillers.

I got caught up in ¿Love & Justice¿ from the moment I read the back cover! I loved the varying story lines and how the mystery slowly unfolded until everything came together. The ending left me surprised and speechless. The story was well thought out and well written. It¿s the kind of edge-of-your-seat book that I enjoy reading. I can¿t wait for the next installment!

When you finish the novel it will make you go WHOA! Just like the end of a rollercoaster ride. It brings passion and violence together in an amazing way, with its main character Det. Jason Jerrard. It screams out 'BestSeller'. Can't wait for Jason's next assignment...

I got my hands on an advance copy and it blew me away. This is this author's first published novel but you'd bever know it by reading it. It's a suspenseful mystery (think James Patterson) with relationships thrown in to keep it extra hot. It's about a detective, Jason Jerrard, who's at the top of his game professionally but his relationships with women could use a bit of help. In comes Sasha, the answer to his dreams... While he's trying to get his relationship with her on track he has to deal with a jealous ex-wife and a murder-rapist who's on the loose and terrorizing the city. You get to check out the detective's expertise both in the bedroom and the squadroom! This book is a hot, suspenseful thriller that definitely leaves you wanting more. And YES! There's going to be a sequel...
