Justice Has A New Outfit


Life isn't fair. Most women know it. But what can you do about it? Plenty. . .if you're part of the Sisterhood. On the surface, these seven women are as different as can be--but each has had her share of bad luck, from cheating husbands to sexist colleagues to a legal system that often doesn't do its job. Now, drawn together by tragedy, they're forging a bond that will help them right the wrongs committed against them and discover an inner strength they didn't know they had. Growing bolder with each act of justice, the Sisterhood is learning that when bad things happen, you can roll over and play dead. . .or you can get up fighting. . ..

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Readers beware: this book is not for the faint of heart or for fans of Michaels's more traditional romances (Kentucky Rich, etc.). There is no happily ever after here; indeed, the primary emotion fueling this story is not love, but anger. Anger leads wealthy Myra Rutledge, who lost her daughter to a hit-and-run driver with diplomatic immunity, to found the Sisterhood, a secret vigilante group of women who have been unable to seek justice through lawful means. Assisting Myra in this effort are former MI6 agent Charles Martin and defense attorney Nikki Quinn, who was Myra's daughter's best friend. High on estrogen and hate, the women pinpoint their first target-the Weekend Warriors, a group of motorcycle enthusiasts who brutally raped Kathryn Lucas, one of Nikki's former clients. The women decide on a Lorena Bobbitt-style punishment and carry it out with very few misgivings-so few that readers will have trouble seeing them as sympathetic. With its paper-thin premise and lack of a rational or moral grounding, this overwrought story isn't likely to satisfy or inspire. (July) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Library Journal
Michaels's newest series is based on the premise that if a crime victim is not protected by the legal system, it is her right to seek revenge through whatever means she finds. The Sisterhood of the series title pursues justice for one of their group who was raped by three motorcycle-riding professional men on a weekend joy ride. The group is assisted in their search for revenge by a rich widow and an ex-member of British Intelligence whose expertise with the coordination of transportation for getaways is truly phenomenal. Like Charlie's Angels, the education and expertise of these women is spectacular, ranging from surgery to truck driving to architecture and the law. The dialog and level of suspense is also reminiscent of an action-packed television series, with little character development and less to make the reader care about the outcome. The extreme measures taken by the surgeon to "fix" the rapists is the extent of the suspense. Will they really do that? Will patrons really want to read this? It seems doubtful. Purchase only if fans insist.-Kim Uden Rutter, Lake Villa Dist. Lib., IL Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
