Don’t Keep Silent is the third and final book in Elizabeth Goddard‘s Uncommon Justice series. We finally get to hear Liam’s story and what a story it is! The former undercover DEA agent has returned home to recuperate after having his cover blown and his heart crushed, not to mention the bullet he took to save the life of the woman he loved.
That woman is investigative reporter Rae Burke. She cared about Liam, but needed to save her friend more. She hadn’t meant to use him to get her story. And now, she needs him again. Her sister-in-law has gone missing and Rae’s clues lead her to Liam’s home town, a place she knew he had gone to recover. Will he risk helping her again?
“Liam… hadn’t known where he belonged before, but maybe, just maybe, he was here at this moment in time because in the end, he was supposed to save Rae again. That was his sole purpose in life. He had no purpose after that.”
The book begins in a tad confusing, yet intense way that means allowing the story to unfold at it’s own pace. But as it unfolds, it picks up steam. Unraveling the past between Liam and Rae while tangling the web of suspense that could keep them apart forever. It is a tough book to put down!
Liam is a fantastic hero. As a reader, I could track with every decision he made and why he made it. And the ending – his ending – was one of the best I’ve read! Rae was a complicated heroine. Needing help, yet needing answers. Torn between the past and the present.
I highly recommend reading Don’t Keep Silent. Even as the third book in the series, you don’t need to read the first two books first, but they’re great books too and give you a glimpse at Liam before coming to his story. And the ending gave this series a resounding conclusion.
