Rough Justice by Brad Smith

Rough JusticeRough Justice by Brad Smith
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

All of those who watch daily news will be familiar the Jimmy Saville scandal where a celebrity uses his position to get away multiple sexual crimes. This book mirrors this but based in small town America. The Mayor is tried for four rapes and gets off however he did not reckon for the resolve of Kate one of his victims. This is a very serious subject and highlights how easy it is for people in trusted positions to ignore the law for their own devices believing they are untouchable. Woven into the story is the rehabilitation of Kate's father Carl who has been just released from jail and starts work with his ex-wife's sister. This is a great story with very real issues explored.
