"Powerful romantic suspense novel"
Lauren Brownley enjoys playing the piano at Denver's
Club Classico. However, her gig abruptly ends when she
sees her employer Carlo Giovessi kill Frank Pappano, a drug
runner who stole some of the illegal gains from him. Carlo
realizes that Lauren witnessed the homicide and from her
hiding place she overhears his instructions to his thugs to
Lauren heeds Carlo's unintended advice to go to the
police who hand her over to the FBI. Agent Sam Grey Wolf
Rawlins vows to keep the frightened rabbit safe until the
Carlo's trial, but knows he must get her out of town to do
so because someone on the Feds' rolls works for Carlo.
Soon the duo is isolated in a mountain blizzard with thugs
on their trail and their only hope is the growing love and
trust between them.
THE WITNESS is a powerful romantic suspense novel that
works because readers will feel the fear and mistrust
between the lead characters that gradually changes into
love and faith. Though the plane escape from the mole seems
too uncertain of a venture, the nasty crash, nastier
weather, and the nastiest hoodlums enhance the story line.
The audience will witness a strong tale with a fine cast
that testifies that the only gray area in this author's
writing is her name.
