Fabulous, thrilling book!

Ana Rocha is a green, bad-ass undercover narcotics officer.

You do not want to put the book down, especially when the punches start rolling. Cannot wait for more! I can totally see this as an action, crime movie. People love action, detective stories, and a bad-ass female. I feel like Michelle Rodriguez would make an amazing Ana Rocha. Shadows of Justice reminds me of the newer Sherlock Holmes movies (the ones with Robert Downey Jr.) due to how the authors explain, slow down, and breakdown the fighting scenes. I have never been in a fight, so it’s necessary to explain to me how these things happen.

I am intrigued by its peek into the mind of someone who must live a split life. The criminal persona you wear while working an undercover job in the seedy depths of the underworld can easily leech into your real life. Having a partner that can pull off the leeches is vital. Ana is lucky enough to find such a partner in Brian. Who turns out has plenty of leeches himself. Can they help each other survive the tough streets of Houston while navigating normal life? I love books that look into the psychology of the people instead of just relaying the actions. The fights between fists is interesting but the real story is the fight between minds, even when they fight themselves. Shadows of Justice delves into both fights and interlocks them in a fantastic story.
