"Prosecutor Sophie Dawson's first job in the White Collar division of the Fulton County D.A.'s office is to build a case against a local bank employee who may be cheating clients. But when circumstances beyond her control leave her as the only witness to a double homicide involving a vengeful gang, her world is turned upside down.
Former Atlanta police officer turned private security guard Cooper Knight is hired to ensure that Sophie is kept safe. But as threats escalate, they don't know who they can trust.
Sophie is determined not to back down, but her bank case gets more complicated by the day, and the gang will stop at nothing to keep her from testifying. Sophie wants to take a stand for what's right--but can Cooper, who is determined not to be distracted by their growing attraction, keep her safe so that she can finish her pursuit for justice?"
While I've read plenty of books that center around the FBI, DEA, various PIs and police officers, even medical examiners, the courtroom is not a place I've frequented. Boy, is that going to have to change! I love seeing how lawyers, and even judges, work. Rachel Dylan hit a home run on that front! The spine-tingling, what's-happening-now, can't-blink-or-I-might-miss-something that I love from a fresh view-point! While there was some strong hinting at some strong language, overall a decent read in that respect. The characters were well placed and many-faceted. In fact, I had trouble putting my finger on the real rat until POSSIBLE SPOILER the safehouse blew up. And then... Then I knew! But I will admit, there were some REAL plot twists that Sherlock Holmes himself wouldn't have seen coming! I mean... GIRL!!!! You got something going on here! I can't wait to get my hands on the others in this series. 4.5 Stars.
Matlock meets incredible plot in this Atlanta Justice series.
