A Woman of Valor

For Valorie Dawes, #metoo means #fightback.

Rookie policewoman Valorie Dawes has a mission: take men like Richard Harkins, a serial child molester, off the streets of her small hometown of Clayton, CT—for good.

Val becomes increasingly isolated within the department and vilified in the public eye as reckless and incompetent. She devotes all of her time and energy to chasing Harkins, but he proves to be both elusive and cruel, victimizing young girls and pressing his threats closer to Val’s inner circle.

Can Valorie overcome the trauma she suffered as a child and stop Harkins from hurting others like her—or will her bottled-up anger lead her to take reckless risks that put the people she loves in greater danger?
