Book Description: Price of Justice is a story about loss, revenge and second chances. This mystery/thriller follows widowed police detective Jason Scarsdale, who, trying to raise a young daughter while solving three murders, unwittingly befriends a grieving mother secretly bent on murderous revenge, drawing him into a web of malice that teaches him the value of breaking the rules. Assigned to investigate two sex-related murders, he teams up with Dani Mueller, a police crime analyst with some deadly secrets of her own. After navigating his way around the cross-hairs of two crooked police managers, he closes in on the killer, but he does not want to believe what the evidence is revealing. Just when Scarsdale thought things couldn’t get any worse, the killer abducts his daughter and the analyst is kidnapped by a man from her past.

BRT Review Title:  Brenham puts the thrill in crime thriller!
BRT Review: I read this in paperback. This was an enjoyable, unpredictable and a surprisingly heart wrenching crime thriller. The twists and turns were well written and the guilt, pain and sorrow felt by both the main character Jason and the crime analyst Dani from the loss of his wife and her daughter was vividly conveyed. I appreciated the added back stories which lent to the mystery and danger as they sifted through the many clues and police policy red tape to let justice prevail in conjunction with a bit of revenge. In my opinion, a truly talented writer can tell a story so realistically that you could believe the plot was derived from an actual occurrence. Brenham has accomplished this for me. He didn’t rush the building closeness between Jason and Dani in such a short time after their losses and their emotional state and cleverness was fantastically delivered. Great review talk! But you be the judge.
