Lawless

by Jenna Rae

Kate Hollister has worked hard to build the life she always wanted. As an analyst in a federal law enforcement agency, she’s become an expert in researching crime and criminal behavior. From the safety of her cubicle, it all seems predictable and manageable. But after her latest heartbreak, Kate looks for a way to escape the confines of her sedate, comfortable life and jumps at a chance to work in the field.

Kate goes undercover as Kate Sooner in Lawless, a remote mountain town in northern California. In a run-down trailer park on the outskirts of town, Kate works to infiltrate a small-time drug ring purportedly run by her new neighbor, Stoney Randall. Though she doubts the value of pursuing such a minor criminal, Kate befriends Stoney’s girlfriend Sierra Finn and her best friend Maggie Herndon.

Kate soon finds that Lawless more than lives up to its name. Everywhere she turns she finds drugs, stolen goods, creepy criminals, mysterious animal disappearances, and the overwhelming odor of marijuana. Turns out the crime behind the data she manipulated so easily in the office is a lot more complicated—now that she’s right smack in the middle of it.

FROM THE AUTHOR

"I’ve always wished for a crystal ball to help me decide when a risk was worth taking. Like everyone else, though, I have to weigh potential outcomes and hope for the best. Kate’s story was born out of my own ongoing struggle to take risks without regrets or second-guessing. She takes a series of big risks and grows from the experience. I like to think she’s taught me to do the same."

—Jenna Rae

NetGalley
Skip S. - This was a well written interesting book, full of uncomfortable topics that’s hard to describe as enjoyable because of those topics, but was nonetheless a good read.

Kate is undercover in the town of Lawless. She used to be a desk based analyst but she wanted to do something different, get ahead in her career. She thinks she’s trying to infiltrate a drug ring, but her handler hasn’t necessarily been all that clear, she just knows she’s living in a trailer park, pretending to be straight and trying to find a way to become friends with the drug dealers girlfriend.

The other main characters in the book are written really well, providing great narrative foils for Kate and showing the realities of drugs etc. on life in small towns. It’s a really relevant book for today’s society, and not one I’ve encountered in this way in sapphic books before, so if you’re into mystery and or crime books, I’d definitely encourage you to give this one a go.

NetGalley
Linda S. - It's a fast-paced, action-packed, page turner with twists and turns that lead to a surprising ending. The characters are deftly drawn...but is everyone who they say they are? There are plenty of suspects to watch. The ending came quite as a surprise. Kate is a character I would like to see again.
