A Justice Seekers Novel

January 2012/352 pages/$14.99

A federal judge lies bleeding on his office floor, betrayed by a most unlikely source—people who helped him bring criminals to justice. Now, why would someone working for the FBI need to disappear after witnessing this crime?

When Remington Wyatt sees her godfather’s murder, she recognizes the killers and knows it’s only a matter of time before they come to silence her. She must do the only thing possible to stay alive . . . run.

FBI agent Rafe Baxter is serious about his career, and solving a cold case involving a federal judge’s death puts him in line for the promotion he so desires. But the case leads him to the small town of Hopewell, Louisiana, where some secrets seem inextricably hidden deep within the bayou.

Injustice for All explores what happens when everything a person believes in is utterly destroyed. Who can you trust?

Robin Caroll has authored twelve previous books including the Holt Medallion Award of Merit winner, Deliver Us From Evil. She gives back to the writing community by serving as Conference Director for American Christian Fiction Writers. A proud southerner, Robin lives with her husband, three daughters, and two precious grandsons in Arkansas. Find out more at her website.

From the opening sentence of the prologue, when Remington Wyatt hears the cha-chk of the gun held by the person about to murder her godfather, until I turned the final page, I was drawn into this story. Robin Caroll has crafted a novel rife with tension that rises off the page like heat from the bayou on a summer afternoon. She parallels the experiences of Remington Wyatt and Rafe Baxter until Remington completely disappears, taking on an unknown identity in an attempt to escape the same fate as her godfather. The layers of the plot grow deeper and more intricate as the book progresses, and the danger escalates as Rafe probes into the unsolved case and as long-hidden secrets begin to surface. In the midst of turmoil and suspense, a steady thread of faith weaves throughout the story as both Rafe and others wrestle with their past and their relationships with God. Injustice for All is a keeper, and I eagerly await the next book in this series, To Write a Wrong, due out in September.
