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. 


Rachel Dylan did a great job following a solid start to the Atlanta Justice series in Lone Witness. Sophie is strong and independent. Cooper is suave and solid. Two from very different backgrounds and upbringing, but both with a strong value system. I love their connection from the start, but to me the highlight is the various twists and turns between the different cases, and the danger they're facing. 

With perfect pacing and great characters (still love the girlfriend camaraderie between our group of legal best friends), Lone Witness is not a lone piece at all. There's a strong message of trust between our characters that flesh out piece by piece until the end. The activities throughout enticed readers to kept their eyes glue to the pages with action, danger, and intrigue when it came to the witness prep, running from the target on both Sophie and Cooper's backs and behind the scenes of the legal system. There's an interesting subterfuge between the players in the cases that had a feel of TV drama. Filled with cunning and witty dialogue, Lone Witness was a fun read. Don't miss it!
