Legal Thriller by Rachel Dylan

Lone Witness (Atlanta Justice)

If you are a Dee Henderson fan, you should try reading 

Lone Witness 

by Rachel Dylan. It's a legal thriller with a great balance of mystery, suspense, and light-hearted clean romance. Dylan is a lawyer by trade, and the details in her book let her expertise shine through. The novel feels very authentic, yet easy for a non-lawyer to relate to and understand.

From the publisher: "Prosecutor Sophie Dawson's first job in the White Collar division of the Fulton County D.A.'s office is to build a case against a local bank employee who may be cheating clients. But when circumstances beyond her control leave her as the only witness to a double homicide involving a vengeful gang, her world is turned upside down. Former Atlanta police officer turned private security guard Cooper Knight is hired to ensure that Sophie is kept safe. But as threats escalate, they don't know who they can trust. Sophie is determined not to back down, but her bank case gets more complicated by the day, and the gang will stop at nothing to keep her from testifying. Sophie wants to take a stand for what's right--but can Cooper, who is determined not to be distracted by their growing attraction, keep her safe so that she can finish her pursuit for justice?"

It's a "hit the ground running" kind of book, and the action doesn't stop until the last page of the book. With so many twists and turns, I was constantly guessing who the villains were. Amidst the action, there is plenty of time for character development and relationships to build among the characters. I enjoyed the conversations around life purpose, family relationships, faith/hope, courage, forgiveness, and friendship.  

This is book two in her Atlanta Justice series. .You can start with book one, which I also enjoyed, or jump straight to book two. You won't have trouble following the storyline.  I look forward to reading more Dylan books!

I recommend this book to male and female readers age 15 plus.  

I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
