Homeless at Christmas…
Seeking safety and a square meal at a soup kitchen results in devastation for a few of London’s homeless.
Can Lorne and Pete solve this unspeakable crime before Christmas descends or will they have to forego their own celebrations to ensure justice is served?
Having been a huge fan of the Justice series, I love these short offerings from the author that feature Lorne and her former partner Pete. It’s a good reminder of how much I miss and enjoyed the series.
Set just a few days before Christmas, I think it made the storyline to do with homeless people even more heartfelt. I can’t say to much as with it being a short story, it will give to much away but hearing of one particular characters own circumstances, really hits home how it could happen to anyone and how we can be quick to judge the reason why some find themselves living on the streets.
Whilst of course Justice at Christmas is a book in the crime genre, it felt more than that. Maybe because it’s set at the time of season of goodwill and whilst there were some parts that sent my blood cold at the cruelty of the crime, there were plenty of heart-warming moments also. A great, quick read which is perfect for this time of year.
My thanks to the author for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
