FBI agent Garon Grier has just moved to
the small town of Jacobsville. He is working a case of a child
who was abducted and killed. Garon wants no entanglements and
intends to continue his solitary life, concentrating on the
killer. A relationship, especially one with his frumpy
neighbor Grace Carver, is out of the question, but when Grace
needs him, he helps her, and a friendship of sorts begins to
form between them.
Garonís and Graceís lives have been
filled with secrets, danger, and anguish. Grace was the victim
of an atrocious crime when she was a child. It changed her
life forever. Garonís painful past haunts him as well. They
could help each other, especially when Grace needs to face her
demons again, but Garon is sure Grace is not want he needs or
wants, until he is about to lose her.
Lawman is a dramatic,
moving, and suspenseful story. Grace is very innocent and
sweet. It makes Garonís eventual hostility towards her
uncalled for. The violent attack Grace suffered is
heartbreaking and the details could be upsetting to those
sensitive to crimes against children. Grace is portrayed as a
victim but also a survivor. Lawman is a very
good story and I liked Grace a lot. By the end, Garon redeemed
himself as well.
