A DARKER JUSTICE is an exciting suspense thriller with some elements of human-made horror. After the recent ugly 9/11 events that have shaken up America, the events in Sallie Bosel's work seem plausible and mild in comparison. The characters are very well drawn, the pacing is fast and the action pulls the reader in from the very first page.
