SHE'S THE ONLY WITNESS TO A BRUTAL CRIME. NOW SHE CAN'T OUTRUN THE TARGET ON HER BACK.
PROSECUTOR SOPHIE DAWSON has taken a new role at the Fulton County DA's office, and her first case involves a local bank employee who may be cheating customers. She's determined to bring justice to those who've lost their savings...but her life is turned upside down when she becomes the only witness to a double homicide involving a vengeful gang.
With her life at risk, friends and family convince her that she needs protection, and private security guard Cooper Knight is hired as a bodyguard. But as threats escalate, neither Cooper nor Sophie knows whom they can trust.
Unwilling to back down on either case, Sophie pursues the truth at any cost. But her bank litigation gets more complicated by the day, and the gang will stop at nothing to keep her from taking the stand. With all sides closing in, steadfast Cooper is the only man she can lean on. But drawing close may be the distraction that costs both of their lives.
Oh, how I love a good suspense novel! Rachel Dylan's newest book in her "Atlanta Justice" series has everything I love in a good suspense novel... tense moments, sitting on the edge of my seat and jaw-dropping moments when everything is revealed. Lone Witness is the second book in the series, following behind Ms. Dylan's debut novel, Deadly Proof, but while it is the second in the series it can be read as a stand-alone.
I am a big fan of characterization...good characterization. Ms. Dylan has created strong and believable characters in prosecutor Sophie Dawson and private security guard Cooper Knight. They both are carrying past "baggage" and fight the growing feelings that are happening between them. I loved the tension Ms. Dylan created between the two.
While the bad guys were known pretty much from the beginning, you were still left with questions regarding who did what and why they did it. In the end, I experienced a jaw-dropping moment when something out of the blue was revealed. I loved it.
If you love a good legal suspense novel, I guarantee you will love Lone Witness. I highly recommend it.
On a 5-Star scale - 5 Stars!!!!!
I received a complimentary copy of Lone Witness from Bethany House, a division of Baker Publishing and was under no obligation to leave a positive review.
