“A fresh look at an old theme. [A] strong, realistic female protagonist.”
“An excellent vigilante crime novel that stands on the strength of its characters and plot without need of gratuitous violence, swearing or soft porn.”
“Very hard to put down.”
The suburb of Crawfield is a mire of neglect, crime, and petty vandalism. Still, all is not lost, not yet. There are those who bring justice to the streets. In a place without courts or trials, the vigilantes exact swift punishments on those the law has forgotten.
The past had been hard enough on Jade already. She had never wanted any trouble and, as long as she kept her head down, her life remained quiet and safe. After interrupting an assault on a woman she didn’t even know, Jade has been changed forever. With nothing more than a hooded sweatshirt and a knife in her hand, she has joined the ranks of those taking moral right into their own hands.
In the dark labyrinth of Crawfield’s alleys and abandoned buildings, it can be hard to see where right ends and wrong begins. When you break the law to uphold it, who gets to decide how far is too far?

Speak for the Dead follows the story of Jade, a girl who has lost her family and must make her way through life alone. Frustrated by the lawlessness and uncaring attitudes of the people around her, she turns to vigilantism, dispensing a signature warning on those she catches doing wrong. Without friends or family for support or guidance, she has no measure of right or wrong beyond her inner compass, but she is being watched by those who seek to impose their own definition of justice on the suburbs. When her ways clash with theirs, things turn deadly.
