Deputy Dani Savage is always trying to prove herself as a police officer in the small town as Baptist Flats, Tennessee after she obtained her job being related to the sheriff. Even thought she’s often overlooked and made fun of by the numerous criminals that Baptist Flats is home to Dani is determined to prove them all wrong and when some evidence leads her to some clues to an old cold case she makes it her mission to find out what’s going on.
Step and Kenny are a couple of the town’s lowlifes that are known as Closeout Kings. It’s their job to enforce payment for the Boss when necessary. Step and Kenny may be criminals but even they have a limit to their lack of morals and when they find there may be something going on with missing children they team up with Deputy Dani to help right the wrong.
Savage Reckoning is not going to be for everyone since there’s a lot of language and a lot of low life activity in this backwoods town. But for those that wouldn’t mind that sort of thing what you will find in this book is a lot of colorful characters that are completely brought to life to where it feels like you’ve stepped right into the story.
Step and Kenny are true to what you would expect of low life thugs but strangely the pair was almost addicting and likable once the story got going. Dani is a strong young woman stuck in a man’s world that you couldn’t help but root for. And with this story there were numerous twists and turns along the journey that made it all a highly addictive read from start to finish.
Overall, yes, I’d definitely recommend checking this one out if you can tolerate the language and criminal behavior involved.
