I received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.
When I read the blurb for this book I knew I had to read it. You hear so much on how police shoot people and it is a big deal especially right now.
With this story we are taken into the world of Officer Vega who had two seconds to make a decision that could affect him and everything he works for. Those two seconds is now costing him everything. Though what he uncovers is far more than something he ever thought he would get answers to.
We see how Officer Vega deals with the decision he made and it affects him truly. Not only does it affect him, but his relationships with friends and family. I really love how one of his fellow officers pushed him to get help so it doesn't consume him because he went through the same thing at one time in his life. I think the author did a wonderful job with bringing issues within the world that are happening now into this story and blending them well from illegal entry into the US and undocumented people to the shooting of a man. We see how a mob reacts when they see the person they believe is responsible but don't have all the facts because the officer can not speak on such things.
Vega goes on a search not only to get answers to who this Hispanic man was but he gets the answers to the unsolved murder. It is all connected in some way but will Vega find out too late who is behind it all?
There is so much I can go into with this book but I feel like I would give it all away. This book is I felt fast-paced it keeps you wondering what is going to happen next. I really liked the ending and how Vega really tries to do good for others. I haven't read the other books in this series but I think I will as the author did a great job with the plot, characters, and story line. I felt she really captured a lot within the story.
