The Vanquished - David Putnam - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book The Vanquished:

A cop goes rogue for all of the right reasons.

My favorite David Putnam quote from the book:

"I knew better than to say anything. My dad didn't raise any fools."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Are law and justice the same?

Can you want to help too much?

My review of The Vanquished:

Fast-paced and hard to put down.

Roller coaster ride to the end.

Too many twists to count.
