Renegade by Nancy Allen
The first in a brand new series, Renegade is a compulsively readable thriller that you won’t be able to put down! And to celebrate this upcoming release, we’ve partnered with Grand Central Publishing to give away a copy of this book to one lucky, 52 Book Club reader! Keep reading to enter!
Renegade kept me hooked from the first page until the very last! The plot is non-stop excitement, following a band of renegades who work outside of the law to stop wrongs.
The main character, Assistant DA Kate Stone, was a lot of fun to follow along with. I loved the juxtaposition of a character who struggles with anger issues, but is also highly trained in kickboxing and karate. She’s brash and formidable, a fierce protector, and doesn’t back down from confrontation. And I really enjoyed this flawed but strong character.
This book also gave me strong “James Patterson” style vibes. While there were elements of this plot that were certainly predictable, it was still a highly entertaining read. The ending did get a bit jumbled for me (and things started happening quick!) but it was action-packed and easy to read. While I didn’t love the fact that there was a cliffhanger, it feels like a strong build up for the next book — and I, for one, will be back for the next in the series!
Readers who enjoy fast-paced, action-led thrillers, and books with a similar feel to James Patterson’s.
(From the publisher) THE PURSUIT OF JUSTICE…
Assistant DA Kate Stone has just suffered the biggest loss of her career. She’d worked so hard to prosecute a serial assaulter of women, and it was a case she should have won. But a corrupt judge allowed Max James to walk free. When he confronts her outside the courthouse, she punches James, and he goes down hard. After the footage is plastered across every TV screen, Kate’s boss demands that she either attend anger management meetings or give up the job she lives for.
CAN BE DIFFERENT FROM THE PURSUIT OF TRUTH.
Begrudgingly, Kate attends her first meeting. Inside is a group of people all failed by the justice system. Their mission: to do everything in their power to help right wrongs, even if outside the law. Unsure who to trust among this unlikely team of renegades, Kate begins to dig into Max James’s secret life and her explosive discoveries will lead to a stunning new twist in the case. And turn her into the prime suspect.
