Given enough time, can you convince your mind to change the truth? After the shocking conclusion to “Lethal Ghost,” everything in county sheriff Officer Luke Rennison’s life is disrupted, including his family, his friendships and his career. Lines are drawn in his midsize city, and Rennison is isolated, second-guessing his actions and facing down his own doubts as the trial for his life begins. But how do you find the truth when everyone is trying to use the trial to make their own statements or push their own agendas on issues such as police brutality, law enforcement procedures and the rights of citizens?

My Thoughts

If you recall I'd mentioned a while back I'd read all of Blake Sebring's books. Well, Sebring is at it again. He's out doing book signings for his latest thriller Lethal Justice which is a sequel to the book Lethal Ghost and I see many readers who've reviewed it are already pumped on wanting book three.

 My review of Lethal Ghost was 
"There was no relaxed comfort in reading this book. Instead, it was an emotional roller coaster. Yes, this book gives an insight into victimology and the difficulties law enforcement face, but more than that, it teaches us our 'what ifs' are not insignificant. This ending can easily transition into a series and I'm hopeful for a movie.

I think most of us that read the thriller genre know that these reads involve disturbance and character conflict where friends betray friends and not all protagonists are good.  

Yes, even our heroes have flaws and this often brings about a depth of complexity which entices readers by raising our anxiety or reaching into us - making us more aware of our specific phobias and eliciting panic when exposed. 

I won't go into much detail about Lethal Justice but I will tell you Sebring's characters are names of people he knows. And what I love most about this is many of these names I recognize and it amuses me as to which direction he takes with their characters.

For those who have not read Sebring's thrillers, they have great rising action with twists. And more than being action-driven they have a valued argument and premise.

I've read most of Sebring's 11 books and it's always a pleasure to meet with him.
