About the Author

Linda Johnson was born in Chicago, Illinois and grew up in Northbrook, a suburb of that great city. She attended University of Illinois, where she received a bachelor's degree in Advertising. She worked at several large ad agencies in Chicago, ultimately as a corporate media director.


When the cold and gray of Chicago got to be too much, she and her husband, Brian, packed up their dogs and horses and relocated to sunny and warm North Carolina. After working for several years as the owner and manager of a hunter/jumper equestrian facility, Linda decided to trade riding for writing.


She writes suspense novels and short stories and particularly enjoys creating smart, psychopathic villains.

My thoughts: A good short story about a cop who helps women break the cycle of abuse.

A page turner from start to finish. Read it on my lunch break just wish it was a longer story but a good read.

This is a simple story of domestic abuse and how one young female officer dealt with it. This is a short story with a surprise ending. I would have preferred a longer story with plot turns, surprises and a clever ending. But that's just me!

Short but good

A short story, but well written. I think every abused person should read this. It speaks well of domestic situations. It can be read between commercials, while preparing a meal, or just before bedtime, or anytime you have a few minutes. Like I said, a short story, but it can do so much for women in that situation, just to know that someone cares.

I didn't see that ending coming! I wish the story had been longer. It felt a bit rushed. The wife admitted the truth much too soon. The husband was appropriately evil. Overall this was a good quick read and Iwill look for more from this author.

Extremely short story w/ no time for character development. It's more of a statement about how the author feels about domestic violence.

The ending surprised me, I love that. I expected it to drag with a lot of back and forth trying to hang the bastard. I think the length was perfect and I woulda bailed if it had longer and dragged.

I ordered this book from the free list and it was not the complete text.But what I read was very good and I will get the complete book. The subject of course is ABUSE. I like Linda Johnson and have been reading her stories for a long time now. I would recommend this book to anyone. U will find this very interesting and complete on this subject.
