A rogue police officer can do a lot more damage than ruin a perfect evening out.
Kennedy Stern and her best friend Reuben drag themselves away from their grueling studies to enjoy a night off campus, but getting pulled over by a belligerent cop isn’t in either of their plans.
When the police altercation turns violent, the media notes Reuben’s dark skin and labels this instance of police brutality a hate crime. Those Kennedy trusts the most warn her not to get involved, but she owes it to Reuben to pursue justice regardless of the personal cost.
Nothing remains a secret when a frenzied media and an embarrassed police department delve into Kennedy’s and Reuben’s backgrounds. Some truths, unfortunately, grow increasingly more painful the closer they get to the surface.
Alana Terry has done it again folks writing another marvelous addition to her addictive Kennedy Stern series. This is book number 3 and like the other books focuses on a prevalent issue in today's society. Although a serious issue is the essence of the plot it is forthright and a quick read. The books do not have to be read in order, but it would make it easier to understand some of the issues Kennedy has to at least read book one first.
Now I know this is a Christian based book, but you do not have to be a Christian to enjoy it. I believe in god yet I am not a Christian and I really enjoyed this book along with the others. I am fond of how the author always finds a positive adage or perspective to add when things are at there lowest.
SPOILER ALERT: There is one point in the book that I do not agree with, which is why Reuben decided to go back to Kenya. With the advances in medicine that exist today People living with HIV who are on stable, effective treatment will have undetectable levels of virus in their blood, allowing doctors and nurses to practice medicine and people to live long lives in loving relationships with a minuscule risk of their partner contracting it.
