A THRILL RIDE TO SELF-DISCOVERY -- A REVIEW

When Valerie McCormick wins a trip to Seattle, she is eager to step outside her ordinary life as a housewife and mother who lives in Prince George, BC. She and her husband Ed have financial problems, and the humdrum of their lives as they struggle along has robbed them of the closeness they once shared.

But what happens to Valerie on that fateful day in Seattle will inform the rest of her life.

Out of the blue and totally unexpectedly, she witnesses a man killing some other men; when she reports it to the police, she is unprepared for the events that unfold.

At home again, she is also stunned by what is expected of her. Will she be safe until the trial, once the FBI agents capture the killer? And once they do, and as the trial is about to start, what will happen to totally threaten everything she loves and knows?

Who can Valerie trust in the weeks and months ahead? Just when she thinks she has found safety, everything unravels. Who is tipping off her whereabouts to the now escaped murderer? What has to happen before she is finally safe again? Or will she ever be safe?

Dead Witness takes the reader on a thrilling journey as one woman defies all the boundaries of her previous life and learns that she can only count on herself. Along the way, she discovers that sometimes the safe path isn't the best choice, and once in awhile one has to stretch to truly find oneself. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Valerie; I admired the FBI Agent Mike Canaday; and disliked Valerie's husband Ed from the very first time he appeared on the page. Every character felt real and helped me connect to this exciting story, which earned five stars from me.
