9780061969690: Reckoning for the Dead: A Sweet Justice Novel

The official story is that Garrett Wheeler, the Sentinels' chief, is dead--killed in a covert op gone horribly wrong.

But Alexa Marlowe--his ex-lover and most trusted agent--isn't buying it.




Overnight, a new leader has mysteriously assumed control of the elite vigilante organization, a man Alexa Marlowe can't afford to trust. In search of Garrett and the truth, she goes rogue and off the grid, following a deadly trail that leads into Mexico, behind the fortress walls of a murderous drug cartel boss. Alone, Alexa has no one to watch her back, not even her new partner, Jessie.

Ex-bounty hunter, Jessie Beckett, has troubles of her own. Her world is turned upside down when her DNA turns up as evidence in a gruesome murder committed when Jessie was only a child, before her life was shattered by an infamous killer. Solving a very cold case may hold the key to who she really is or kill the only memory she has of a woman she believes is her mother.

For Alexa and Jessie, the dead must have a reckoning.

From the Inside Flap:

"Jordan Dane brings surprising grit and hard-boiled heft to her books. And "Fugitive Recovery Agent" JESSICA BECKETT is no exception. The hard-boiled Chicago bounty hunter is a real piece of work--a take-charge, kick-ass hard-ass with more than a few personal kinks. She's not above running games on bail jumpers that Rockford himself would envy or getting way too personally involved in her cases. But perhaps best of all is Jessica's sheer recklessness and the unadulterated, impulsive fierceness she displays as she closes in on her target. And what makes the book work so well is how her own troubled past creeps up on Jessica even as she zeroes in on her prey."
   --Kevin Burton Smith, The Thrilling Detective Website Founder & Editor

"A red-hot mixture of fiery characters and volatile conflicts are an easy indicator of Dane's continued success as she introduces the world to the third installment of her Sweet Justice series, The Echo of Violence. Circling storylines and hints of hidden agendas keep a remarkable pace with fascinating and heart-breaking results. As the layers of secrets are carefully peeled away, each smartly crafted character becomes more than words on a page.

Jackson Kinkaid is a broken and private man with a long list of skeletons in his closet that he keeps closely guarded. Kincaid recognizes one gentle soul as his salvation in life and when her life is threatened--at the hands of terrorists--he will stop at nothing to save her, even if it means allowing a painful aspect of his past to resurface. With limited options, Kincaid is going to have to place his safety and trust in the hands of people he hasn't worked with in much too long.

Facing the paralyzing fear of failure--and fighting a gunshot wound and raging infection--Kincaid leans on agent Alexa Marlowe, his counterpart in this impossible rescue mission as the game takes an even more dangerous turn. No longer is this less than simple extraction about saving one life, but now has deadly consequences for many.

Small victories pepper this well-written thriller, but don't be fooled by what initially appears to be a `cookie-cutter' ending. The Echo of Violence isn't quite so predictable."
   --John Raab, Editor, Suspense Magazine, Los Angeles, CA

From the Back Cover:

The remarkable Jordan Dane continues her National Readers Choice Award-winning Sweet Justice series with Reckoning for the Dead, a breathtaking blend of mystery, surprise, and heart-pounding adventure that places her popular series characters in danger's path once more. A polished gem of riveting romantic suspense, Reckoning for the Dead follows covert operative Alexa Marlowe of the elite vigilante agency the Sentinels as she hunts down the truth about the alleged death of her ex-lover and Sentinels chief, Garret Wheeler--while former bounty hunter Jessie Beckett finds herself ensnared in a very cold but still deadly case of murder. This one's a winner for fans of Tami Hoag, Andrea Kane, and Lisa Gardner.
