Title: Twisted Justice (The Hunt for Justice #2)
Author: Diane Capri
Pages: 528
Year: 2016
Publisher: AugustBooks
My rating 4 ½ out of 5 stars.
Willa Carson is the main character in this story. She is a federal judge and married to an entrepreneur who runs a 5-star restaurant in Tampa, Florida. The story is quite interesting as it deals with a Supreme Court nomination, a retired general, murder and her court caseload. The intricacies of the novel really kept me in suspense as Willa’s husband is accused of murdering the general for political reasons. George’s personality is really different than Willa’s; yet, they have a strong marriage and strong friendship. Willa knows she cannot get involved or she puts her job as a judge in jeopardy, but she also thinks like a lawyer who wants to advocate heartily for her client.
George’s nickname for his wife is Mighty Mouse, which I just love because Willa always wants to come in and save the day. Willa has very little patience for her boss or for people who seem to run roughshod over others. Willa wants to save her husband from having to go through an indictment and a long trial, but George advocates she let him handle it his way. What ensues is definitely a clash of personalities and problem-solving methods that tests their marriage’s strength and endurance.
One of the issues talked about in the story is the military policy of “don’t ask, don’t tell”. If this is something that bothers you as a reader, just know it’s part of the tale. The author handles the delicate subject of sexual choices without going into detail or advocating one side or another. She does an awesome job of helping readers stay tuned to the mystery of finding out who killed the general and why along with a couple other cases Willa is handling in her courtroom.
The author also does a great job of showing how hard lawyers and judges work, and how hard it can be to maintain an unbiased attitude when handing down decisions in a case. Look for more novels coming from the pen of Diane Capri as she has a couple of different series for readers to enjoy. ( )

Book description
Tampa’s most charismatic Federal Judge, Wilhelmina Carson, returns in another fast-paced novel of mystery and suspense. War hero General Randall Andrews has been nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court and George Carson leads the fight to defeat him. When Andrews is found shot to death in his Tampa home, George is arrested for murder and Willa pulls out all the stops to free her husband in this second installment of the well-loved Judge Wilhelmina Carson Cases.

In another tale of suspense and one surprise after another, this tightly plotted, character-driven novel will give Judge Willa fans the sequel they’ve been waiting for. What, exactly, is George’s game? Realistic twists and turns keep readers engaged and guessing until the finale.

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

In 2011, an article in The Age accused Detective Paul Dale of nodding ?off for a quick power nap ? while a notorious gangland figure escaped from the back of an armed robbery squad car in 1990. Only problem was that Paul Dale was never an armed robbery squad detective, and in 1990 was a 20-year-old junior constable, nowhere near the gangland action. But in Dale ?s case, the media have never let the truth get in the way of a good story. From the moment police informer Terry Hodson pointed the finger at Dale to try and weasel his way out of a life sentence on serious drug charges, the Victoria Police have pursued Dale with a vigour rarely seen. Offering millions of dollars to ?witnesses ? in return for statements, the Victoria Police have yet to convict the former decorated police officer with a single thing. For the first time, Paul Dale tells his side of the story. When you look at the story behind the story, it is almost beyond belief.… (more)
