Review: Sinclair Justice (Texas Rangers #2) by Colleen Shannon

Ranger Proud, Ranger Strong...

Texas Rangers swear to uphold the law to the letter. But Captain Ross Sinclair isn't about to play by the rules to destroy a major human trafficking cartel—especially now that the only chance to break this case just strode into his life with attitude as long as her gorgeous legs. Heiress Emm Rothschild is taking names and raising hell as she searches for her abducted sister and niece. And the evidence this wild-child turns up sets off a lethal chain of events—challenging Ross to keep her reckless determination and seductive daring up close and dangerously personal.

Now a blindsiding betrayal has Emm heading straight into harm's way. And Ross will have to put his badge and career on the line to get justice—and prove to the woman he loves that a Ranger's word is a forever bond.

“One Ranger, One Riot.”  The Motto of the Texas Rangers as it was told in Foster Justice, book 1 of this very exciting Texas Rangers series.  I want to point out right from the get go that you can read Sinclair Justice as a stand-alone and you will probably do okay with it.  However, if you haven’t read Foster Justice first, you will not get the repeated references to a “leather harness hanging from the beams.”   That aside, this could stand up on its own.

A word of warning about Sinclair Justice.  It deals with the subject of human trafficking so expect violence and rape.  You have been warned.

Now on with the excitement of this second story in this rather entertaining series about Texas Rangers.  Ross Sinclair is a Texas Ranger Captain in Amarillo, and heads the task force investigating human trafficking.  Ross is a bit older, early fifties.  It is fun to read a story about a more mature gentleman who is still HOT!  He can park his boots under my bed any time.  *sigh*

But alas, Emm (Mercy Magdalena) Rothschild – I am going to make you read the book to figure out how they got Emm out of Mercy Magdalena – got to him first.  She is on a mission – well actually a couple – when she comes roaring past Captain Sinclair at 125 miles per hour.  Talk about first impressions.  He actually arrested her.  But she is a Rothschild and had some pull in getting bail set and getting out of jail much faster than he thought she would.  So begins the relationship of Ross and Emm.  *grin*

Although this relationship was fun and entertaining, it took a back seat to the suspense and action of the story.  I think I may have mentioned before, I do enjoy a good, action packed shoot-’em-up.  Sinclair Justice did not disappoint.

As mentioned, this story dealt with human trafficking.  I appreciated how the author had us looking at the issue from various points of view.  There are the victims.  Their total helplessness.  The brutality they are subjected to.  The struggles to stay sane – or not.  How they often succumb to drugs to dull the sense of aloneness and abandonment.  Then there are the loved ones left at home, trying valiantly to make sense of it all and find their missing loved ones.  The futility that is felt when met with, what appears to be, inept and unfeeling law enforcement.  The overworked law enforcement who is restricted by laws and miles of red tape, not to mention boundaries that stretch throughout the world, but are doing the best they can.  And let’s not forget the villains and their warped sense of seniority and empowerment.  Or those that are lured by the huge amount of money involved.  All sides of this issue are looked at in this story.  It was enthralling and made for very gripping reading.  It was one of those stories I did not want to put down.

You fellow lovers of hunky Texas Rangers, crime drama, suspense and action, limber up your one click finger.  You will want to read this.
