ARC Review of Judgment by Carey Baldwin

Carey Baldwin, author of the thrilling novel, Confession, returns with a new story featuring two of her most beloved characters. Fans of dark psychological suspense will devour this riveting story of rivals caught in a killer’s twisted web.  When a coed falls prey to a sadistic killer, forensic psychiatrist Dr. Caitlin Cassidy and Special Agent Atticus Spenser are called in to testify—one for the defense, one for the prosecution. With warring approaches on justice, these two rivals have been butting heads for years—both in the courtroom and out. And at first, this case appears to be no different.  But when a brutal attack leaves the accused man dead and Caity in critical condition, petty differences take a backseat to saving lives. As the lone survivor, Caity knows too much and the killer—a madman calling himself the Man in the Maze—is coming back for round two. Now, Caity and Spense must join forces to uncover the killer’s identity before Caity’s time—and luck—runs out.

Judgment by Carey Baldwin

Release Date: October 7th

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Two highly intelligent characters that fight for justice on opposite sides of the courtroom kickoff this new series.

We’ve briefly met forensic psychiatrist Dr. Caitlin Cassidy and FBI Special Agent
Atticus Spenser in a previous book and butting heads best describes how they are when they have to be in the same room. But when Spenser finds Caitlin lying in a pool of her own blood after a shooting at the courthouse we see that maybe there is more to those sparks than just hatred.

The suspense/murder part of the plot spans over a 15 year period and it is as full of twist and turns as the labyrinths and mazes that the killer uses in his sick game of wanting to be a God.

Spense manages to convince Caity that they should work together to bring down the killer. These two are defiantly not your typical characters. They are very intelligent and dont think the way most people do. Those traits were what had them at odds in the beginning but you can see that it also makes them perfect as partners work wise and hopefully romantically in future books.
