Hour of Judgment

Hour of Judgment - Susan R. Matthews In which someone is murdered for revenge, someone tortured in an attempted cover up, and a third person killed to close the case. And that's just what the good guys do.

I know this is dark book, but on reread, I couldn't help laughing most of the way through. It's such a perfect storm of bad judgment and wrong place, wrong time, the irony burns. Come on: the protagonist seriously contemplates killing all of his friends and loved ones to keep them "safe"--before he belatedly realizes he can just kill the person threatening them. How can you not laugh?
