Imperfect Justice is a fantastic legal thriller. The storyline builds its complexity from a very common yet very rarely explored topic--domestic violence. The storyline sets up when attorney Emilie Wesley is trying to help Kaylene Adams leave her abusive husband....but who exactly is the victim & who is the perpetrator when Kaylene appears to have killed her daughter & then committed suicide?
Emilie struggles with what her role is in the situation, and her feelings become even more mixed when her boss tells her to stay out of the investigation while Kaylene's brother Reid asks Emilie for help in proving Kaylene didn't commit suicide or murder.
The character development is pretty solid, and the additional tension that comes from the undercurrent of minor storylines adds depth to the book, too. This was an enjoyable, quick read (if you get the chance to sit and read it in a couple of sittings!) & I look forward to reading more books by Cara Putman. **Note: this is the second book in the series. I haven't read the first book, but plan to go read it and can also say the book I just read stands alone nicely.
