This vigilante group, while containing an understandable motive, h 'Third Time, Not a Charm' is the second book I've read by H. This vigilante group, while containing an understandable motive, have taken it to the umpteenth degree by not only killing people but torturing them before death. It gives new meaning to the phrase Jaime, Jim, and Josie are stuck in that position. Jaime and Jim are the bosses. Josie respects them, but she's probably the strongest of them all -- both mentally and physically.
In quite a number of scenes, the super cop tosses her colleagues to the floor so quickly, it ain't even funny! I do love a strong female lead, and while she shares the spotlight in this book, it's clear that she'll be the main one we want to follow. Kudos to Rourke for developing a solid protagonist with great appeal and lots of potential. I haven't read a ton of police procedural novels, but this definitely seems to hit the mark in that regard.
The author clearly knows a tremendous amount about criminal law and police processes, which easily lends an authority and intrigue to the story and its web of subplots. At times, I found myself lock step in line with the detectives, thinking and reacting like them.

At others, I would never have thought about those consequences - nice job! While I wouldn't quite thrust this in the thriller category, although it arguably could be there, it has tons of suspense and mystery that draw readers in. The crimes are viscerally described. The relationships are complex.

And the fallout is tremendous. When cops are sitting around idly, discussing who to kill next, and then turn on one another Rourke creates fantastic characters and gives them a meaty tale to attack.

Several cops calling themselves The Group have turned vigilante and now Josie and her companions are on a hunt to take down The Group who doesn't seem to have a problem profiling and killing both citizens and other cops.
This book is well written and with enough technicality to satisfy even hard core police procedure addicts. Although the book is listed as having close to pages, the authors writing style makes a compelling read feel like it is too short and I am definitely looking forward to the next book in this series and following Josie DuPuy, a lady cop who knows her own mind and knows how to make others listen to what she has to say.

ComicAlly: Josephine, Volume 1 by Penelope Bagieu Review
Jun 03, Ted Jonsson rated it it was amazing. A thoroughly well written and enjoyable read. The story gathers pace quickly, where we find a vigilante group at work. We follow Josie and her colleagues in the police force as they hunt down the group, who are closer than you think. The police work is very detailed as the story gathers pace to an exciting climax.
Jul 20, Louise Musgrave rated it it was amazing. Pure class! Deep insights, fascinating character and a male author who puts a female as a leading protagonist.
