Poor Frank Grimm lost both his wife and daughter, and the only thing that kept him going was the desire to uncover the person responsible for his daughter’s death. He started breaking into people’s homes in an effort to uncover a clue since at first he was certain that a neighbor had killed her. Later, he broke into their homes because he was curious to learn more about their lives because his was a life of nothing but sadness, grief, and guilt.
An ex-detective named Frank Grimm breaks into the residences of his neighbors in search of information that would help him identify the person responsible for his daughter’s murder. What was once a relentless preoccupation with uncovering a crime has changed into Frank breaking and entering, living vicariously through their lives, and seeking any connection to everything.
Mallory, a former coworker in the sheriff’s office, just has a gut feeling that Grimm killed his own daughter. She is mistaken, and Grimm is innocent, everyone in her fictitious sheriff’s department knows that, as do we readers. Because of the negative effects it had on her family, I did not like Mallory’s fixation with Frank. Frank’s lesson was learnt too late, and it was amazing how similar she and he were.
He now understood the value of having supper together as a family; hopefully Mal would discover this before it is too late for her family. Even though she believed she prioritized her family, her job was always more important. She didn’t even care about her daughter’s stress. She only desired to resume her work! Additionally, she valued her career more than her husband’s did.
I found Hidden Justice to be a psychological thriller that I couldn’t put down once Frank met his new neighbor Freya in the first part of the novel. He was committed to helping her no matter what since he knew how much she needed it. More in this series will be read with interest. Even I delayed finishing some crucial tasks to read this. It’s a positive sign that someone is becoming interested in reading when they say, “I don’t want to stop reading this book.”
About The Book
Frank Grimm is a retired detective who breaks into his neighbors’ homes searching for clues to find the man who murdered his daughter. What was once an unrelenting obsession in solving a crime has turned into something else — Frank breaking and entering, vicariously living through their lives, searching for a connection to anything.
One day he finds something waiting for him — a letter from a teenage girl who knows what he’s doing. It also says one other thing:
“Help, my father is raping me. Please kill him.”
Frank must decide how far he’ll go outside the law to save a child from a monster.
But his former ally, detective Mallory Black, is tracking his every move — she believes he escaped justice once, and she is not going to let it happen again.
Detective and ex-detective find themselves on a collision course as their lives are torn apart by their obsessions for delivering justice, no matter the costs.
Poor Frank Grimm lost both his wife and daughter and the only thing that kept him going was the need to find his daughter’s murderer. At first, he was sure it was a neighbor who had killed her so he started breaking into their homes to find a clue. Later, he broke into their homes because he liked to know what was going on in their lives since there was nothing going on in his except sorrow, grief, and guilt. I felt sorry for Frank and could understand that it was difficult for him to move on but his obsession with the neighbors, especially since he didn’t like them, was so unhealthy!
