Beyond Justice by Cara PutmanHayden McCarthy is on track to become the youngest partner in her prestigious D.C. law firm . . . if the case she’s just been handed doesn’t destroy her first.

Hayden McCarthy knows firsthand the pain when justice is not served. It’s why she became an attorney and why she’s so driven in her career. When she’s handed a wrongful death case against the government, she isn’t sure if it’s the lucky break she needs to secure a partnership—or an attempt to make sure she never gets there. She keeps the case alive through sheer determination and more than a little creativity, but then she’s fired by a partner with a vendetta.

Further complicating matters, Hayden keeps finding herself completely distracted by Andrew, her roommate’s cousin. But his father is a Congressman and she’s currently taking on the government. Could the timing be any worse?

The longer she keeps the case active, the higher the stakes become. Unknown enemies seem determined to see either the case—or her—die. Should she fight alone for the dead young man by launching her own unfinanced firm, or abandon the case in order to save her own life?

My Thoughts

Beyond Justice is a riveting story with just the right blend of suspense and romance. Elements of law, immigration, politics, and conspiracy create an exciting backdrop, the author also provides authentic characters and legal depth that doesn’t go over the average reader’s head.

Hayden McCarthy is a talented, passionate, up-and-coming attorney. She has small town roots yet exudes big city confidence in the courtroom. Hayden applies intelligence and savvy to each case, always thinking outside the box yet never crossing the line into questionable ethics. She might have started out as the girl-next-door but now she’s a legal force to be reckoned with.

Although Hayden is committed to a precarious case, she draws strength from the support and encouragement of her friends and even likeminded strangers along the way. This story has a well-balanced vibe. Yes, there is evil in this world but there is also good, hope, and love. Well done! I’m looking forward to future books in this series.

I requested the opportunity to read this book through the publisher. The opinions expressed are my own.
