I received a copy of Avenged by Janice Cantore from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
When Officer Carly Edwards finds three young gangbangers shot execution style, she and her husband, Sergeant Nick Anderson, head of the gang unit, fear Las Playas may be on the verge of a gang war. The Las Playas PD is put on high alert as tensions escalate between rival gangs, especially after Carly confiscates weapons from a gang leader and learns they were stolen from a military base along with explosive devices.
But something isn’t adding up, and Carly suspects there might be more going on. As she prepares to testify at a major trial, Carly’s reputation is shredded by a reporter apparently trying to discredit her professionally. Facing pressure on all fronts, Carly must rely on faith and trust God in a deeper way during one of the biggest struggles of her career.
This book had a lot of police lingo that kind of made it hard for me to follow. I did enjoy the book overall and liked that I couldn't guess the ending like I thought I could part way through the book. Reading this gave me a new perspective into the lives of couples who both work in the police force.
