Review: Lone Witness

Lone Witness by Rachel Dylan
Reviewed by: Pam Graber
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publisher: Bethany House
Publication Date: May 1, 2018

Sophie Dawson is a tough Assistant District Attorney. She knows what it is like to go after justice against criminals. What she doesn’t know is how it feels to sit in the witness seat with the prosecution’s entire case hinging on her testimony. As the only eye witness to a double homicide, Sophie has a lot riding on her shoulders. Can she continue to do her job, while she runs from the target her testimony has put squarely on her back?

Recently transferred to the White Collar Crime Unit, Sophie has just begun investigating the most recent case of fraud. She’s sure she has her man, but, as she continues to investigate, pressure mounts to settle out of court. When her digging turns up dirt beyond what she was expecting to find, can she convince her boss that something else is going on?

As the danger escalates, it becomes very apparent that Sophie needs help. Cooper Knight works in private security, and is hired by Sophie’s dad to keep her safe. Working together, can they find the missing link to blow Sophie’s case wide open, without putting her in the crosshairs of killers?

This is book 2 in Rachel Dylan’s Atlanta Justice series. I thought Lone Witness was even better than Deadly Proof, and that one was stellar. Lone Witness had more twists and turns, and I never knew where the next threat was coming from. I love that Rachel Dylan is a lawyer herself, according to her bio, so she knows the intricacies of the courtroom that most of us have never seen. The characters are strong – especially the women in both of these books. The men are no slouches either. All work for Justice in Atlanta, in some way.

I will say, there are a few characters that I can hardly wait to see what she’s going to do with them in the next book. The defense attorney comes to mind, as does the guest prosecutor. I also can’t wait to see who the third friend ends up with.

Lovers of the romantic suspense genre NEED to pick this one up! It was a fast-paced, twisting, screamer of a story. Prepare to bite your nails and stay up WAY too late! While this is book 2 in the series, it can be read as a stand-alone novel. Although, since both books were so good, I’d hate to see you miss out by skipping Deadly Proof altogether. I absolutely recommend this one!

Rated PG: The suspense is strong in this one.
