5 Stars Out Of 5
August 16, 2012
Diane Burke proves she's a master of suspense in her newest tale of chilling excitement. With emotions key to her creations, Burke raised my ire, quickened my heart, and made me tear up, all within pages of each other. I railed my anger at the drug-induced villain whose sole goal was to lay his hands on a 5 year-old autistic boy. Standing between the villain and the victim are two people who thought they'd never see each other again, and when they did, their sparks flew across the pages, igniting a flame that couldn't be doused by time or circumstance. Sheriff Elizabeth Bradford must set aside her beleaguered past to protect the boy even if it means butting heads with the man who broke her heart 15 yrs ago. Dr. Adam Morgan might have a certificate qualifying him for psychiatric care of the autistic child, but she knows from experience that a piece of paper doesn't mean squat when a life is at stake. Except she can't be both protector and investigator, so she allows Adam into her life for the boy's sake and tries to defend the wall of stone she's built around her heart.
A battle of wits_a cauldron of memories. Can a small boy bring Liz and Adam together again, or will they allow a killer to tear them apart forever?
If you like sitting on the edge of your seat in breathless anticipation, then Silent Witness is the book for you.
