My review…

Well, this was an emotional end to an era!! The last in the Justice series!! Say it isn’t so!! I’ve followed this series since book one which was actually the first book I ever read by Mel Comley and ever since then I’ve been a “superfan”. So reading this last book in the series felt like ending a relationship! It was very traumatic!

I have to say that the subject matter hit me hard here. When a 15 year old boy comes home from school one night full of enthusiasm for a new school project, I was shocked to the core to see how quickly the mood changed and what happened next. Any mother of teenagers will tell you how hard it is in this day and age for them to avoid cyber bullying. Social media is such a huge part of their lives but the negative side is so difficult to police! But when the local teenage suicide rate rises to an expectedly high level in Lorne’s borough, the team need to investigate further. And what they discover will shock them all.

I found myself on the edge of my sofa reading Toxic Justice, torn between racing through the brilliant storyline and trying to slow my reading down, reluctant to get Lorne go for the final time. As the case gathered momentum, I prepared myself for an emotional ending but I had no idea just how explosive and powerful it would be. Mel Comley has such a personal connection to her characters that she is able to project the intensity of their feelings off the page and so, as always, I connected with her storyline from start to finish.

I’m so sad that this series has come to an end (AND WHAT AN ENDING!!) but I do know that this author has lots of plans for future books and I am looking forward to seeing what she brings her readers next.

Highly recommended by me!
