Redemption Road (Hardcover)
Len says: "A dark, brilliantly-written novel full of twists, turns, and heartache. Police officer Elizabeth Black finds herself in the center of a maelstrom as state attorneys attempt to indict her for the murder of two depraved sociopaths while she was in the line of duty. At the same time, Adrian Wall, another cop and the man who saved Elizabeth's life, is about to be released from prison, where he served a thirteen year stint for an alleged crime of passion. Hart weaves these two storylines into a gruesome, often chilling, and entirely gripping crime novel that will have you on the edge of your seat all the way to the spectacular ending. (SIDE NOTE: I listened to the audio version of this book. Scott Shepard's narration might be the best I've ever heard.)"— Len Vlahos, co-owner of Tattered Cover
