How many times have you wished you could be the instrument of karma or at
least be able to witness when people receive their just deserts? I admit I am
guilty of wishing to be a fly on the wall when the moment of judgement hits. If
you ever had that urge this book would satisfy it.
It’s the story of Karma Sandborn who lives up to her name and her parent’s legacy by helping those that are deserving and metering out justice in cases where the system failed. She begins by helping a lesbian couple who recently adopted their niece and nephew after the death of the children’s parents. Karma anonymously bestowed financial blessings on the struggling family. To balance the scales, she followed the headlines of the case of a drug dealer that ordered the hits of five people, three of them children. The hitman was sloppy and it resulted in his capture. He then rolled on his boss. However, the lab tech that analyzed the hitman’s DNA from the scene was accused of tampering with the evidence in light of her relationship with the detective of the case. The DNA results were dismissed, the hitman retracted his confession and would later end up dead. The charges against the dealer were dropped and he was freed. Karma decided that it was her duty to deliver the justice that he escaped. The story is fast moving, and the main character is tenacious in her desire to make things right for the people that drug dealer Poppock murdered. Her struggles with anxiety, and following the plan to the letter give the character depth and make her easily relatable. I would recommend this book and hope you have trouble putting it down like I did.
