"Fatal Frost" is the first book in the new series "Defenders of Justice" by Nancy Mehl. Mehl has steered off into a completely new direction. The new series though still in St Louis, centers around Mercy, a US Marshall, and her two crime fighting friends Tally and Mark. The plot is what if the police/black shootings were not so shall we say, black and white. What if it were a conspiracy to appear that way to keep both the public and the authorities attention else where while another party were taking control? Mercy and her men are about to find out.
I like that Mehl is trying something new. I think the new series is good. I don't especially like Mercy. She's a bit of a cold fish. I do like Tally and Mark. I received this book in exchange for a review from Bethany House.
