Can’t-Wait Wednesday: Shattered Justice by Susan Furlong

Third book in a series about two military veterans–an MP turned deputy sheriff and her canine partner

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings. This is a weekly meme to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. The books I choose aren’t released yet and usually won’t be published for at least two or three months. So I have a while to wait!

I love finding out about books which will publish in future months and I like to share my excitement about the books. I also like to find out about new books on other people’s blogs and hope they’ll sometimes find something to look forward to on my blog.

I’m excited to read . . .

Shattered Justice by Susan Furlong

Series: Bone Gap Travellers #3

Published by Kensington

Publishing date: December 31

Genre: Mystery, Police Procedural

Synopsis: In the Appalachian town of Bone Gap, Tennessee, backwoods justice is more than just blind. It’s swift, silent, and shockingly personal. In Susan Furlong’s third series installment, Irish Traveller – turned deputy sheriff Brynn Callahan must investigate disturbing clues meticulously staged by a twisted killer while navigating tensions between the Irish Travellers and the settled folk in her Appalachian community.

The first message is found in a playground. A few feet away, a pair of human ears hang from the monkey bars. Deputy sheriff Brynn Callahan isn’t sure what to make of this grisly scene. Do the ears belong to a murder victim? And if so, where is the body? One thing Brynn is sure of: the earring on one of the earlobes belong to a man she met at a party the previous night. . .


I’ve read the first two books in this series and really enjoyed them. Both Brynn and her canine partner are military veterans. The setting in the Appalachians is interesting as is the Travellers community.

This third book sounds gory and scary–but hopefully not too graphic since I don’t like gory and scary very much.
