Third in Defenders of Hope series doesn't stand up to the first two

Enduring Justice by Amy Wallace is the third book in the Defenders of Hope series about agents in the FBI. It picks up shortly after Healing Promises; Michael Parker is working a missing child case that may have connections to a white supremacist militia group. Hanna Kessler , his girlfriend, has been battling demons for over twenty years since she was molested as a child. Michael's case and the events of the previous book make her emotions boil over separating her emotionally from the people she needs to lean on most in the mistaken belief that it's all her fault. Wallace does a wonderful job of ratcheting up the tension and describing the difficult job faced by federal agents in tracking down pedophiles. Hanna's shattered heart influences every part of her life, even her friendships and make it hard for her to trust other people or herself; Wallace depicts that aspect of an abuse survivor with compassion and honesty. I felt that there were too many plotlines in the book between the militia, missing child, Hanna's abuse, and all of the various agents' personal lives. It was hard to keep track of who was doing or felt what. It also drew some of the power away from the militia story, because it was told in a very detached, rapid-fire manner. I didn't enjoy this book as much as I had the previous two in this series. Wallace may have added too many characters to handle them all. I do hope that she continues the series with Lee and Rashida and that she pares down the non-essentials.
