There is no way sheriffs deputy Dan Justice could have prepared for this. He spent a lifetime ensuring that his actions and faith live up to the meaning of his name—Avidan: God is just. Then injustice invades his world, ripping away what matters most, forever robbing him of the life he once knew. Can his sisters and small-town community, especially one woman who loves Dan, help him overcome the horrors he is facing? Or will bitterness and anger shatter him forever?

Publisher's Description

Deputy’s Sense of Justice Destroyed

There’s no way sheriff’s deputy Dan Justice could have prepared for this. He spent a lifetime ensuring his actions and faith live up to the meaning of his name—Avidan: "God is just." Then injustice invades his world, ripping away what matters most, forever robbing him of the life he once knew. Can his sisters and small-town community—especially one woman who loves Dan—help him overcome the horrors he’s facing? Or will bitterness and anger shatter him forever?

What happens when justice fails the lawman?

Sanctuary, Oregon . A town where the local diner owner makes you drink your milk—no matter how old you are. Where juvenile delinquency means blowing up outhouses. Where folks not only know their neighbors, but care about them. For widowed sheriff’s deputy Dan Justice, it’s a place where he and his kids can heal and grow.

Shelby Wilson loves Sanctuary and her work with troubled teens. Like Jayce Dalton. Sure, he’s as troubled as they come, but Shelby knows Dan is exactly what Jayce needs. She just didn’t expect that Dan might be what she’s always needed, too.

But sleepy little Sanctuary has a dark side, steeped in pain and secrets. Secrets that could destroy everything Dan holds dear. Secrets that will one day have Dan groping through the fog toward a lifeless body—and faith-shattering grief.

Can Dan find sanctuary in the light of God’s justice?

"A surefire hit!"— Karen Kingsbury , bestselling author of Beyond Tuesday Morning

"Shattered Justice is for anyone who has ever known grief or asked God, "Why me?"— Terri Blackstock , bestselling author of River’s Edge

Story Behind the Book

"The idea for Shattered Justice came out of an article I read in the newspaper. This very thing happened to a police officer. As I read the article, I kept wondering how anyone who spent his life serving others could ever come back from such a horrific, unjust loss. Of course the details in this book differ from the event that inspired it, but the story unfolds from a similar life-shattering event and follows Dan as he struggles with grief and anger."

    This is my first Karen Ball book. I loved it! I couldn't put it down. I've read many many Christian thrillers (including Dekker and Perretti, Singer, and Teel). And I can say with confidence that this is the first book that made me "feel". Most books I am deattached from. I've had about as much tragedy as Dan Justice just not as close. I've had 2 best friends die in car wrecks (one in 2nd grade the other the year after our graduation), my grandpa just passed away in December from a long medical battle and when I was 7 my aunt was brutally murdered and I, like Dan Justice, reside in a small town of about 3000 people. I don't know how many kids are like Dan's, wish I knew more, that was about the only "flaw" but in a way it wasn't. I figured though that Dan really needed some counseling after the 2nd blow...something...because most would turn to self destructive behaviors and have a hard time finding God on their own again. But alas it was a wonderful book and I'd recommend anyone to read it. God's grace is wonderful, His mercies unfathomable, and His love unbounded!

    My first book by this author. I'm glad I readit but, don't really know if I'd read it a second time. (My personal test for a really good book) The message is good - God is always with you - good times and bad, tears and laughter but, one accident and two murders was almost more than Dan, or the reader, could handle.

    I have read all three of the Family Honor Series, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Karen Ball is an extremely talented Christian author who skillfully uses fiction to teach some very real spiritual truths. There is enough mystery and romance in each one of the novels to keep you eagerly reading right to the end. I appreciate that she resolves each story before ending that particular book, instead of, like some other authors, forcing you to buy the next book in the series to see how it will end. Each book is "stand alone" even though the family is the same. Good job!

    This was my first Karen Ball book, and I have to say it was lovely. I enjoyed the way that Karen refrained from creating a perfect Christian character who would never dream of questioning or getting mad at God, although for plot purposes, I thought three deaths were a bit unnecessary. But the balance of sadness and hope, as well as romance without the sugary smarm, was great. I absolutely could not wait to start Book 2!
