The Pledge by Kathleen Kent is a rapid page-turning police procedural that kept me up past my bedtime.
It’s a great read, technically the third in a trilogy, but I hadn’t read the others and definitely enjoyed it.
I am planning on going back to read the other books, however, as I really enjoyed Betty’s character, and the writing and adventures in the book.
Betty is the kind of woman who doesn’t give up, and in her search for Evangeline Roy, there are great adventures, plenty of action, and fantastic characters.
She is given a two-week time frame to solve her case, or else people will be executed. As Betty strives to protect her wife and the 7-month-old child they are looking after, her urgency to fulfill her pursuit within the deadline increases, creating plenty of edge of your seat action, and lots of gripping suspense.
This is one read I definitely recommend to those who love action, adventure and thrills, with a great female lead!
