Short Story Review ~ Escape Club: Justice by Regan Black @ReganBlack

About the Short Story:

Escape Club: Justice is a fast-paced, short adventure featuring characters from the Escape Club Heroes romantic suspense series.

Running the Escape Club is Grant Sullivan's second career and he can't shake the instincts that made him an excellent cop or the ingrained need to help the Philadelphia, PA community he calls home. When a woman comes to the bar determined to shoot a man who assaulted her, Grant and his team must find a way to give her justice over blind vengeance.

Grant Sullivan's second career is running a night club with a segment that also helps those in community with problems they can't solve themselves and don't or can't necessarily involve local authorities. People come to him for help, knowing the former cop will assist them. Others who don't know they need help eventually find their way to him, as well.

Natalie walks into Escape Club with nothing but vengeance on her mind. The man who sexually assaulter her is part of the band taking the stage and her intentions involve him not walking off stage alive. It is now up to Grant and his team to find a better way to mete out justice. What was done to her was a heinous crime but she shouldn't spend time behind bars for it, the perpetrator should. 

I love how Grant and his wife, Katie, are able to make Natalie comfortable. Katie's assurance and kindness help Natalie allow better choices to be made in handling her rapist. Grant has a very strong ability to take charge of the perpetrator and get him to do exactly what needs to be done in order to get justice for the crime. 

I really enjoyed this heart-wrenching short story. Regan Black is a wonderful author and I have always enjoyed her writing style. The characters she creates and the worlds she builds are realistic, well-developed, and keep me engaged from the very beginning. I highly recommend all of her work.
