Dishonored by J.R. Reardon, ISBN:978-1-4327-5080-0, Outskirts Press, Review by ellen george


Dishonored is a sequel to J.R. Reardon's excellent Confidential Communications, but can be held as a stand alone book.

It still features now married Federal District Court Judge Rebecca Lawson Tamerson and her husband Joshua are still living in Vermont, and are as successful as they are happy. Rebecca continues to persue her legal career and is not only liked by her peers, but respected. The couple have a great personal life, and they have a comfortable life.

All of a sudden, she is taken away from the bench, with the sad news that a friend and Supreme Court Justice has disappeared, and a Federal Agent shot. Good friends with the McNaughts, the Tamerons' world is rocked upside down while they try to figure out was this disappearance a kidnapping, a person just leaving his lifestyle for a different life, or some other unsavorary scenario.

It also gets kind of crazy when receipts from Eupope come that the Justice is on a shopping spree overseas, but is not seen in any surveillance footage. What's going on?

Even more upsetting, evidence is planted to implicate Rebecca as the kidnapping culprit!!! Someone is really savvy in planting evidence and staying ahead of the investigations to the contrary.

All evidence seems to be pointing to Rebecca!
The subplot of this story is a young lawyer Jessica Cohen has been hard at work trying to become a judge, and resents that Rebecca seems to have it all. A young man, Mark, comes into her life, and she finds it a pleasant surprise her star is rising even as the Federal Court Judge Rebecca Tameron's star seems to eclipse.


What's going on?

This page turner will keep you on the edge of your seat, and you will enjoy not only Ms. Reardon's story, but her knowledge of the law and all the back story events that are part of it. No surprise since she is indeed a great lawyer.

As I said, Dishonored can be a stand alone book, but knowing there was life of characters before Dishonored or any other book, makes me curious to see what occurred to this point in time, and will get Confidential Communications.
Both excellent books. Both excellent adventures and stories.

A great read indeed.
