Welcome to Justice . . .And good luck leaving alive!

Sheriff Nathan Justice loves the town he serves. Founded by his family generations before, Justice, Illinois, is mostly a peaceful place. But the tranquility has just been shattered.

Women visiting Justice are being murdered. Tourists in nice hotels, money still in their billfolds, jewelry still on the dresser. Quiet kills—they go to sleep and never awaken.

Rae Gabriella left the FBI after an undercover investigation turned terribly wrong. She’s seeking to rebuild her life, and working as a private investigator alongside her former boyfriend Bruce Chapel in Justice, Illinois, seems like a place to start. But she suspects finding some peace and restoring her shaken faith will take more than just a change of location.

The sheriff is not pleased to find Rae working a case on behalf of one of the victims’ families. Rae is staying in the same hotel where one of the women died, and her looks suggest she could be the next victim. Now that Bruce, Rae, and Nathan are forced to work around each other, the situation is threatening to become something much more personal . . . and it will test the faith of everyone it touches before it is over.

Meet the Author

Dee Henderson

Pastor's daughter Dee Henderson is a lifelong resident of Illinois, USA, and currently resides in Springfield. She believes that marketing books should be about the stories rather than the writer, so she keeps a low profile compared to many authors. Her background is in mathematics and computing science (B.Sc 1988) and she had a high paying job as an engineer before she moved into full-time writing in 1996. Her technical expertise has given her an unusually keen insight into the structural aspects of storytelling. The results are plain to see; since 1999, Dee has produced two bestselling fiction series - the acclaimed O'Malley series and Uncommon Heroes - as well as eleven stand-alone titles.

Dee's books brilliantly mix suspense and romance, and her characters undergo varied and interesting faith journeys that are integrated skillfully into the storylines. Dee's work has won or been nominated for several prestigious industry awards including the RWA's RITA Award, the Christy Award, the ECPA Gold Medallion, the Holt Medallion, the National Readers' Choice Award, and the Golden Quill.

Insane
4 stars By Sophie, Mar 23 2018
This was the first book of Dee's that I read and I was instantly hooked to her writing. 
It holds a great balance of romance and crime which means it's not too intense to read and enjoyable. 
It was great to see how the story developed and the way the author took you on the journey to finding out the truth. It was also a good message of forgiveness at the end!

If you love suspense, this is a book for you! Although it didn't have the romance of a lot of Dee Hendersons books it is still interesting and keeps you turning pages long into the night!

Very Gripping
4 stars By Nellee, Dec 10 2007
"Before I wake" is another one of Dee Henderson's classic suspense novels. It is definitely a great read and, as with all her books, she keeps you on the edge with suspense and the build up to the conclusion. However, don't read this book if you don't enjoy things not being wrapped up. It ends with a pretty substantial cliffhanger regarding quite a number of different things, and with no known plans for a sequel, many may find this incredibly frustrating.

Before I wake by Dee Henderson
5 stars By Jenny, Apr 25 2007
Before I wake is Dee Henderson's latest book. It's full of suspense and mystery and really has you sitting on the edge of your seat.

The town of Justice, Illinois, is normally a quiet town, so when visiting women are turning up dead things start to get mysterious.
Sheriff Nathan Justice is hunting a killer. Rae Gabriella a former FBI Undercover Agent has moved up to Justice, Illinois wanting to start life over again after a undercover assignment went horribly wrong. Her former boyfriend Bruce Chapel has asked that she come and work for him as a private investigator. However the Sheriff is not very pleased to have Rea in town as she is working on a case on behalf of one of the families. On top of that she is staying in the same hotel as one of the victims. As the friendships form and the investigation gets more involved it's becoming clear that Rea's looks might make her the next victim. 

Dee Henderson's books always grab the readers attention from the first words and leave you in suspense till the end. I love the way she incorporates crime and romance all in one book. I would highly recommend all of Dee Henderson's works as they are all just superbly written. I still find it hard to put one of her books down even if it's the fifth time reading them. I always wish the books had no end.
