"Plain Retribution" Book Review
by Dana R. Lynn
Ten years ago while on rumspringa, Rebecca Miller and her friends were kidnapped and held captive…and now, living in the English world, she's nearly abducted again. One by one her friends who once helped send their abductor to jail are targeted, and she is next…unless police officer Miles Olsen can stop a killer. Deaf since birth, the only person on the force that Rebecca can communicate with is Miles, and he needs this case to redeem himself of past mistakes. When the relentless killer tracks them deep into the heart of Amish country, protecting Rebecca must be Miles's sole focus. Because a mistake this time will cost something worth more to him than his job—the woman he's falling for.
As Miles hunts for the offenders, the action and mystery left me chomping at the bit. I was so intrigued by this book. Rebecca is deaf and since I taught ASL to several of my special needs preschoolers who were unable to speak due to autism, I was very interested in this aspect of the book. Rebecca certainly copes well and the need for someone who knows ASL in all businesses/institutions is evident here as Miles was the only person able to communicate with Rebecca. I was thankful as I read that he was there for her though. Readers will enjoy the thrill and nail-biting tension in this book.
I am rating this book 5*****stars. I highly recommend it to readers. This is clean fiction and appropriate for teens as well as adults.
