About this Book
Hayden McCarthy is on track to become the youngest partner in her prestigious D.C. law firm . . . if the case she's just been handed doesn't destroy her first.
Hayden McCarthy knows firsthand the pain when justice is not served. It's why she became an attorney and why she's so driven in her career. When she's handed a wrongful death case against the government, she isn't sure if it's the lucky break she needs to secure a partnership—or an attempt to make sure she never gets there. She keeps the case alive through sheer determination and more than a little creativity, but then she's fired by a partner with a vendetta.
Further complicating matters, Hayden keeps finding herself completely distracted by Andrew, her roommate's cousin. But his father is a Congressman and she's currently taking on the government. Could the timing be any worse?
The longer she keeps the case active, the higher the stakes become. Unknown enemies seem determined to see either the case—or her—die. Should she fight alone for the dead young man by launching her own unfinanced firm, or abandon the case in order to save her own life?
I love reading and sharing my latest book with readers like you. I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. I am friends with many authors and also have a client relationship with many of them. This book may be one I received from a current or future client. Regardless of my relationship with the author, this review reflects my honest opinions of the book. For more information view my full disclaimer policy.
Beyond Justice by Cara Putman is a suspense thriller that deals with legal issues and current events. It is a book I could not wait to read!
This book started off well for me and captured my attention. The intense scene drew me into the story and the mystery piqued my interest.
One of the interesting aspects of this story was the immigration theme. Since immigration is a hot discussion topic right now, it made the story more relatable.
The governmental aspects of this book were also interesting, as Hayden tries to take on the government, yet is drawn to Andrew, whose father is a Congressman.
While there were a number of twists and turns in this book that made for an adventurous read, I did find myself losing interest in the story at times. With all of the different elements in this book my struggle to stay engaged through the whole story surprised me. Overall this was a good book and I’ll probably read the next book in the series.
