In a world where domestic violence victims live in fear, four women have turned the capital city of Texas into an abuser's worst nightmare.
Around Austin, people simply call it "The Shelter." A private eye, an attorney, a hacker and a realtor join forces to rescue victims, hide them, and then destroy the lives of their abusers. Their reputation as ruthless vigilantes has abusers thinking twice about consequences far beyond a court of law.
When the battered wife of baseball's biggest superstar runs to the women for help, they face their most dangerous opponent yet, a sadistic sports agent determined to protect his client for a half-billion-dollar payday.

An Entertaining, Exciting & Fast-Paced Novel Domestic is an entertaining and exciting book. Julia, Cassie, Yardley & Noelle are an interesting foursome of strong female characters that head up “the Shelter” and are ruthless in helping and protecting those who seek them out. When an abused baseball player’s wife seeks them out, they meet an adversary that plays dirtier than they do. There are a lot of characters introduced, especially in the beginning, and many have changed their names due to the domestic violence in their past, so this book will keep you on your toes. Due to the subject matter, this was not a light, easy read, but it was excellent and delivered the characters and subject matter in a believable and interesting way. I usually read before bed and found myself saying, “just one more chapter” much more often than I should have to get a good night’s sleep! That, to me, is a sign of a great, compelling book. Jeff takes the world of domestic violence and makes it realistic, yet not graphic. Most of the domestic violence incidents are vague, yet descriptive enough for you to understand what is happening in the story. The ending is well done and complete, yet leaves the door open for the possibility of more books about the women of the Shelter. I would love to read more books about these amazing strong women!
