This Christmas, murder doesn't take a holiday.

Madison Knight should have ignored the call. Now she is spending Christmas Eve dealing with her least favorite thing...blood and lots of it.

When a female victim is found in her home it has Madison and her partner tapping into the vic's personal life. With a rash of former business partners and lovers, all of whom wanted her dead, there are not enough hours to question them all.

But trying to find the person who had the most motive isn't all that's on Madison's mind. As she struggles to establish balance in her own life, she knows she has to get her focus back. Justice requires it.

She's a detective? I've never known a single one to have any issues with any crime scene as far as wanted to avoid specific ones (other than those involving children). No one likes death but the messier the crime scene the better. More mess means more information.

Great opener. Looks like a solid police procedural. Look forward to reading it.
I just finished 'Ties that bind' and l couldn't wait to get into 'Justified. Page one and l can't stop, l'm already loving how it flows from book 1 as if l was still reading it,  Thanks for the effort you put into the detail, great work. 👍
