Human trafficking. A kidnapped partner. Ina's case just got a whole lot darker.
In an uncertain future where the Impures—genetic defectives—are banished to a ghetto territory, Detective Ina Stone and her rookie partner, Sam Fujimoto, constantly fight for survival. But when a murdered Impure is discovered in the projects with only a business card in his pocket, the clues lead them into the shadowy underworld of black market trade and human trafficking. After Sam is kidnapped by the Yakuza crime syndicate, Ina must hide her own defect to go undercover as a human trafficking victim. Accompanied by a Tebori master and a new detective with her own secrets, Ina must find a way to free Sam without exposing his role in the investigation, or getting herself killed in the process.

Lexi's Thoughts:
The Yakuza have more power than Ina knew, and now they have her too. Penn brings a great sequel to Pure Death with her second book Pure Justice!
Pure Justice picks up right where book one ended. Ina and Sam are together but he is recovering from being shot and there are a lot of questions surrounding the Yakuza. 

The first part of the book is a lot of Ina throwing up due to her hidden pregnancy compounded with unanswered questions that arise from an unidentified, possibly Pure, murder victim. Once Ina tracks down some information on the dead tattooed man things get interesting and the action picks up.

Ina finds herself kidnapped and separated from Sam. When she is rescued her partner/lover is no where to be found. What does she do? Goes to find him of course. Ina uses her connections and goes undercover with the only woman to ever escape the Yakuza’s human trafficking. Not only does Ina put herself and her unborn baby at risk, she finds Sam and he is working with the Yakuza. 

Yeah, you are going to have to read the book to find out what is going on there but it is good. There is so much action in the second half of the book you will fly through the pages in no time. Ina has a handicap but doesn’t let that stand in the way of protecting those she loves or standing up and doing the right thing. 



Penn goes deeper into the Pure world she has created. With behind the scenes views of the law and the crooked games those with power play Pure Justice is a great read.
