No One to Trust by Lynette Eason

 Reading a book by Lynette Eason is always an adventure. Her newest release, No One to Trust, is a fast paced journey involving organized crime and the WITSEC (Witness Security Program). 

Summer Abernathy believes her husband Kyle to be exactly who he says he is, a computer programmer she met in a bank when she dropped her purse and he helped her pick up the purse's contents. But one morning she wakes up to find that her husband didn't come home the night before and there are three strange men with guns in her bedroom.  They demand that she tell them where her husband "David" is. Needless to say, her world, as she knew it changed that day.

The men give Summer a chance to locate her husband's laptop but they tell her she is not to notify divthe police or they will know it.  After they leave she begins a search of her house but is interrupted by a visitor at her door looking for her husband.  After she gets rid of the 'visitor', she continues her search and soon discovers a hidden box that contains a phone number.  She decides to call the number only to find that the man answering the phone is the same man who had just visited her looking for her husband.  The man's name is Mike and he returns to the house knowing she is in trouble.

Mike asks Summer if she knows where Kyle/David is and she tells him 'yes'. In calling her husband's place of business, she found out someone leaving the vicinity had been in a car accident and was found without any ID and was taken to the local hospital. Mike and Summer get to the hospital to find out that it is her husband.  This scene propels the story into a fast paced adventure where Summer and David are taken back into protective custody, for a while anyway, and the organized crime boss starts barking orders to get them and the laptop.  Unfortunately, there are corrupt people involved and Ms. Eason does well to keep the reader guessing until the very end.

I could go on and on but it would ruin the suspense of this well crafted novel.  One thing I will say is someone always seems to know exactly where Summer and David are which suggests there is a leak in the group of U.S. Marshalls that have been chosen to protect them. Or could someone else know of there whereabouts? Ms. Eason is a master at crafting a suspense novel that will keep the reader guessing until the very end.

I would definitely recommend No One to Trust to anyone who loves a good clean suspense novel. The Christian thread was subtle but not overpowering. 

On a 5-Star Scale = 5 BIG Stars!!!!!

I would like to thank Lanette Haskins and Revell Books, a division of Baker Publishing Group, for my copy of No One to Trust. I received my copy for free in order to read and give my honest review, which I have done.
