In a world of Southern neo-Nazis, Detective Raiford Reynolds does WHATEVER IT TAKES to prevent fanatics from imposing their influence over a Louisiana town. Strong family values and faith underscore this highly suspenseful 4th-in-the-series of The Raiford Chronicles.
Janet Taylor-Perry has a great writing style that gives the reader just enough to keep them guessing, always anticipating, and surprised nevertheless at the outcome. Ray, the protagonist, is a well-developed character. He has all the personal misgivings and family/child issues a police detective could reasonably expect to handle, and yet maintains his moral certitude.
I read this book without the advantage of having read the three previous books in the series, and I'll have to say it didn't matter. It book stands out nicely as a novel on its own. It had me turning pages quickly, and when I finished, I was determined to backtrack and read the first three books (in proper order, of course).
