A novel by

 
 
Jessie Bell's last parole hearing was a disgrace - one board member called her a witch and a harpy and said that, given the chance, he would have her put down like a rabid dog.

Ten years in prison for killing her sadistically abusive husband had turned Jessie Bell into a poisoned, embittered, and dangerous person. The parole hearing was the straw that broke the camel's back. It was payback time.

An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth? No, not for Jessie Bell. Her version of justice wasn't just about getting even. It was about taking back twice as much as had been taken from you. Two eyes for one. Justice meant redressing all the imbalances - and putting out only one eye didn't compare to the loss of all the advantages of losing two eyes.

Fortunately, Jessie is offered the position of the late Pavo, Regan's Uncle Paul, in the Organization.

And she accepted it.

"Justice," she murmured. "Poetic justice. Justice that I can create myself."

She balled up her fists on the table. "Yeah, there's more than a few people I know who need some poetic justice right about now."

A former Delta Force operative is serving a life sentence for killing an eight-year-old girl. He was found guilty just because he could have done it and people feared him? Who was the real killer?

It was like the whole world was turning crazy. A judge's son murdered innocent kids, then had his kids, in turn, murdered. Dangerous chemicals killed hundreds, then spread into the water supply. The City turned into a permanent rush hour - a panicked slow crawl. Drug dealers and pimps were getting killed on the streets.

Karma? Jessie had always been a fan of ordinary human beings carrying out the work of karma.

There is only one person who could possibly stop the inevitable bloodbath that Jessie is about to unleash on the city - Judge Regan St. Clair - but to do so, she must cross the line she has sworn never to cross - join the Organization.

But maybe it is as Uncle Paul always said: "The end justifies the means."

The End Justifies the Means is a full-length novel, a crime suspense-thriller about a woman who has been placed in a position of immense power from where she is going measure out justice as she sees it.

This fast-paced suspense thriller is the third book in JC Ryan's Exonerated series that started with Judgment Call, followed by Damned If You Do Damned If You Don't.
