Josie Baylor-Bates had her faith shaken once before, when
defending an innocent teen. Now, the man in her life, ex-
cop Archer, is accused of murdering his stepson two years
previously, just weeks before the death of the boy's
mother. A stepson Josie had no idea even existed. When she
learns Archer was heard saying the boy, who was retarded,
might be better off dead, even Josie doesn't know if she
can carry through.
SILENT WITNESS, the second of Ms. Forster's books I've
read, was interesting and kept me turning the pages. Josie
was as capable and likable as ever, and life with a
teenager hasn't dimmed her spirit any. You can feel the
sand between your toes and the ocean breeze in your hair
with this one. A good read.
The inimitable defense attorney Josie Baylor-Bates returns
to defend the man she loves from the charge of murdering
his own disabled stepson. Walking the fine line between
lover and lawyer, trust and truth, Josie will have to race
against time to prove someone is framing her client-until
she finds out that the last, silent witness is the most
dangerous of all.
