Romance Suspense | Thriller
The plot centers around Hammond Cross, Special Assistant
County Solicitor. (for those of you who don't live in South
Carolina and haven't read THE WITNESS, you might not know
that in that state, lawyers are called solicitors. In Texas
we call them by other names.)
Hammond Cross hails from a wealthy Charleston family,
but he eschews his heritage and the advantages it affords,
even going far as to choose public service over a more
lucrative career in criminal defense. He's ambitious, and
has his sights set on higher offices, but his goals aren't
strictly politically motivated. He's also an aggressive
prosecutor out to win for all the right reasons. He believes
in what he's doing and devotes himself to bringing criminals
Until . . .
He unwittingly becomes the alibi of an accused murderer.
The captivating and elusive woman with whom he had spent
an overnight getaway — a meeting he mistook as
happenstance — becomes the prime suspect in the most
important criminal case Hammond's career. If he prosecutes
it successfully, he'll inherit the top position from the
retiring County Solicitor. If he doesn't, he'll have many
people to answer to . . . not the least of which is himself.
To admit his own culpability is self–destructive.
To fail is unthinkable. To win is to sacrifice the woman
he's come to love.
