In 1986, Iron Cobra Vallejo lead biker Butch Crowley and his brothers enjoy a three day party. Afterward they bike to Fort Bragg in Mendocino County. There they brutally kill former member Billy Derhammer, his wife, teenage son and five years old daughter.

Law enforcement from several jurisdictions unites to work the vicious homicides in which the violence leads to Butch. ATF agent Marko Novak is on the case, but personalizes it when he takes a photo of the youngest victim Dallas and promises her justice. The case makes little progress because everyone including bike members and his woman are afraid of ruthless Butch’s brutality.

Justice for Dallas is a terrific police procedural as readers get inside the head of a cop working a particularly violent case. Marko is a fabulous protagonist who turns to the Vegas casinos to relax from a difficult inquiry. Although the transitions between the past and present are choppy, fans will appreciate Marko’s efforts to take down Butch.
