This legal thriller escalated into a suspenseful from the beginning and didn’t slow up until the end. From the onset, I grew suspicious of every character which kept me turning the page. Rachel Dylan did a fabulous job of keeping the action rolling and the reader guessing.
Mia Shaw, a corporate litigator, discovers the brutally murdered body of her co-worker when she arrives at his apartment with balloons to celebrate his first successful year at Finley & Hughes. The visual is a picture she can never erase. At the first bit of evidence, Mia is convinced the murderer is the maintenance man at the apartment complex. Like a shark with a vengeance, she zeroes in on him and is determined to put him behind bars for life until Noah Ramirez, owner of K & R Security, begins to sway her thinking.
When Mia’s boss assigns the case, her co-worker was working on to her, the action snowballs. Without warning, she learns she is now a target. Mia faces multiple near-death situations. She struggles with her new faith and tries to figure out how to trust God for peace and safety while dodging malicious attacks.
The twists are endless, with a big surprise in the end. Anyone who likes legal thrillers will be glued to this novel. There are a lot of characters to keep up with, but Rachel Dylan introduced them in a manner that helped the reader remember each one.
I give this book four stars.
