Lone Witness (Atlanta Justice #2)


Title:  Lone Witness (Atlanta Justice #2)

Author:  Rachel Dylan

Pages:  320

Year:  2018

Publisher:  Bethany

My rating is 5 out of 5 stars.

When you start reading this story, be prepared to be unavailable until the end!  In the story, we meet a seasoned prosecutor who witnesses a vicious crime and is the only witness to the perpetrator.  At first, it sounds like a simple or somewhat straight forward tale, but don’t believe it!  What I found inside was a very suspense filled thriller that had me turning pages until I was done!

The first book in the series is titled, Deadly Proof and I so enjoyed that one that I highly anticipated Rachel Dylan’s next book.  Yet, the author exceeded all my expectations and hope for a legal thriller!  One of the main characters is Sophia Dawson whose legal practice is in white collar crimes after being in another division for the prosecutor’s office.  When she starts to investigate boxes of paperwork and begins trial preparation after the criminal trial as a witness, what follows is a rollercoaster ride that readers will find themselves on as they follow what is unveiled in the case Sophia is now working.

There is action, danger, twists, turns and high-speed thrills that had me up for hours because I was so hooked on the plot.  Where was the author going to take the story, her characters, the sub-characters, the danger that kept climbing right when I thought it had reached a climax?  Her knowledge and experience come into play as evidenced by the way she describes the internal thoughts and struggles of the lawyer players.

The times the audience is taken into the courtroom were very exciting for me as well as how a witness is prepared to testify.  The differences in the practices of the attorneys and their personalities adds another layer of flavor in story.  If you love suspense, thrillers, romance, faith, and a solid story, then look no further as Rachel has given audiences two well done books to relish!  Grab a copy of each and be prepared to be unavailable while your lost in the pages of the novels.

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
