Overview

Price of Justice by Alan Brenham

His focus is on solving the murders—until the unthinkable happens…

Recently widowed, Austin Police Detective Jason Scarsdale works to solve the murders of two pedophiles, while trying to be both mother and father to his five-year-old daughter. During his investigation, Scarsdale is forced to navigate between the crosshairs of two police commanders out to get him. Drawn to Austin Police Crime Analyst, Dani Mueller, who has also suffered tragedy, Scarsdale fights both his attraction and his suspicions that something just isn’t right…

She is hiding a secret, one that could not only cost her a job—it could end her life…

Dani hides a deadly past. After her daughter was brutally murdered, Dani exacted her revenge then changed her name and fled to Austin. But if her secret ever gets out, she knows there is no place she can hide from the murderer’s vicious family.

Pulled into a web of malice and deceit, Scarsdale and Dani discover the value of breaking the rules. Then just when they thought things couldn’t get worse…they do.

  Detective Jason Scarsdale lost his wife years before. It was a senseless accident that took her life. Jason still blamed himself for it.  He was trying to move on with his life and raise his daughter but it wasn't easy.  He kept busy with work and spending time with his daughter doing fun things.  It was while working on a case he met Dani.  No one knew much about the profiler but she was good at her job. Jason's daughter Shannon met Dani and loved her instantly. There was something about Dani though. Jason felt she was hiding something... and she was. A secret so dark and dangerous it may end their budding relationship.      This is one book with many twists and turns. You will think you have everything figured out several times before you reach the end. Great characters who come alive on the page and a story that will blow your mind, this book is worth the read!  I was pleasantly surprised while reading this book.  A different take on justice and WOW is it fantastic.  I recommend this one Highly.      I found no issues.      I gave this one 5 cheers out of 5 because it is an amazing story that could become a series.   ~Copy of book provided by author in exchange for a fair review~

Coming to terms with the loss of a love one is never easy. Regrets haunt P.D. Detective Jason Scarsdale, in the weeks following his young wife’s death, especially since he blames himself. When Scarsdale and his partner, Sean Harris of the Austin Police Departments, Sex Crimes Division are instructed to investigate a child molestation, they soon realize the case is far more involved than first appears. Their investigations lead them deep into a paedophile ring, whose tentacles reach far and wide, with repercussions which will affect them in ways they never could have foreseen. When Jason becomes friendly with co-worker Dani Mueller he doesn’t realize that she has her own hidden secrets which will affect his life more than he could have ever imagined. Cleverly written, with believable characters and great attention to detail, the author has made full use of his in-depth experience in both police and law departments, to write a brilliant crime thriller. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this detailed and captivating story, which kept me guessing throughout with its twists and turns.

Detective Jason Scarsdale is suicidal following the death of his wife Charity. But other things demand his attention. His daughter Shannon. Catching a serial killer. Busting a pedophile ring. Co-worker Dani Mueller is connected to all three. Her past complicates Scarsdale’s personal and professional lives. Page turner. Couldn’t put it down. Like an episode of Law & Order. With the unexpected twist at the end.

Brenham will not disappoint you with the mystery of who's holding the wrings. Not graphic if you're worried about the pedophile just a love story on trust and restructuring of ones heart. Great emotions of ups and downs dealing with lost, revenge and money. Those we trust with our lives sometimes are the ones we should be running and hiding under the bed.

I was gripped from the opening page by this book. The writing style is flawless and engaging, delicately crafting the world and history to events around the characters with each sentence.  The opening few chapters establish each of the main characters backstories and interweave their lives in a very real and meaningful way for the reader. By the second chapter I couldn’t put the book down and was living and dying with the emotions of the characters, especially those of Dani Mueller. The plot is very well done; the twists and turns of it are not predictable and have the reader on the edge of their seat.  The legal aspects of the book are extremely well explained, especially when they come from the author’s experience. There is a display of knowledge about law and order that a lot of other books in this genre are lacking. The use of both third person and first person narrative is superbly well done. The first person narrative is reserved for when following Dani Mueller and the third person narrative is used for the other characters – the CEO, Jason Scarsdale, Harris, Zarko etc.  The way the book is written allows the audience to solve the mystery elements of the story along with the characters of Harris and Scarsdale without holding back details.  The use of language is excellent, it is not too flowery and overcomplicated so it can be read and enjoyed by anyone whilst avoiding being overly simplistic.  This is an excellent example of crime fiction focusing on the effect that crime against children can have on people; it is extremely enjoyable and satisfying to read without feeling like it is a story that has to have a happy ending or is even leading to a completely neat and tidy finish.  At the very end of the digital version there is one slight annoyance – the formatting switches from normal type set to italics and part way through the italics there is another small section of normal type set.  On the whole I would recommend this book to anyone – whether they are interested in the crime genre or not – as an excellent work of fiction.
