When Officer Carly Edwards finds three young gangbangers shot execution style, she and her husband, Sergeant Nick Anderson, head of the gang unit, fear Las Playas may be on the verge of a gang war. The Las Playas PD is put on high alert as tensions escalate between rival gangs, especially after Carly confiscates weapons from a gang leader and learns they were stolen from a military base along with explosive devices.
But something isn’t adding up, and Carly suspects there might be more going on. As she prepares to testify at a major trial, Carly’s reputation is shredded by a reporter apparently trying to discredit her professionally. Facing pressure on all fronts, Carly must rely on faith and trust God in a deeper way during one of the biggest struggles of her career.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
A retired Long Beach California police officer of 22 years (16 in uniform and 6 as a non-career officer), Janice Cantore worked a variety of assignments, patrol, administration, juvenile investigations and training. During the course of her career in uniform Janice found that faith was indispensable to every aspect of the job and published articles on faith at work, one for a quarterly newspaper called "Cop and Christ", and another for the monthly magazine "Today's Christian Woman".
With retirement Janice began to write longer pieces and several novels were born. Janice is excited and honored to now be a part of the Tyndale Publishing House family. Accused, the first installment in her new suspense offering, The Pacific Coast Justice Series, was released February 1, 2012 and kicked off a brand new chapter in her writing career. In addition to suspense and action, her books feature strong female leads. Janice writes suspense novels designed to keep you engrossed and leave you inspired.
Avenged by Janice Cantore is book three in the Pacific Coast Justice Series. It can be read without reading the first two, but you will be missing a lot. I didn’t read the first two books and feel lost at times.
Avenged is a book that is full of suspense, danger and police work-the kind of book I love. I just didn’t get into it to much because not reading the first two books.
I think it would have been an excellent book if it wouldn’t depend on books one and two so much.
I really enjoyed Avenged by Janice Cantore for all of the drama, suspense and fantastic police work. Carly and Nick are very sweet likable characters, but I missed what happened to them in the other books in this series and didn’t know their history.
I really would recommend this book if you read them in order.
