I had goosebumps as I read Sweet Justice. Tess has Epilepsy but it hasn't been diagnosed as that officially. Her mother mysteriously disappeared and she never felt settled with the idea that she just ran off for a better life. She knows better than to believe that.
When she catches her step-father Dirk cleaning blood out of a house claiming to be an animal's castration gone wrong she can't fight that feeling that something has gone wrong. She tries to tell the police what she saw but they think she is misguided in believing that her step-father has killed again.
Determined to take justice into her own hands she sets a trap for a dangerous game of cat and mouse. Sweet Justice although short will capture you from page one and you'll finish in one sitting awaiting the climatic conclusion.
