Renegade: An Anonymous Justice novel (Anonymous Justice, 1)

We rated this book:


Kate Stone is an Assistant District Attorney who just lost a case against a man who is a serial assaulter of women. He confronts her outside the courthouse with his victory and she punches him. Kate’s boss demands that she attend anger management sessions. At her first meeting, Kate meets Steven who introduces her to another kind of group. A mysterious funded group who right wrongs, outside the law. At first, Kate thinks being a Renegade is a good idea, but when she begins to look into things the group tells her to let go and people around her begin to die or get hurt. She’ll have to decide if fighting for justice is worth the cost.

This book reminds me a lot of James Patterson’s latest novels, which makes sense since Nancy Allen co-wrote some with him. There isn’t a lot of substance here, just shallow characters and basic plots full of holes. I found Kate and her brother Leo to be more like petulant children rather than grown adults who practice law. The story got pretty convoluted near the middle and left a lot answered and not in a suspenseful way. I would only recommend this to Patterson fans.
