As a child, artist and potter Dani Bennett witnessed the brutal murder of her parents. With no memory of the incident or her true identity, she was forced to take on a new name and a new life, hidden away in Montana for the past 25 years.
Mae Richmond has spent the same stretch of time searching for her granddaughter, who went missing the night her daughter and son-in-law were murdered. Convinced the woman she saw in a pottery magazine feature is the woman she's been searching for, she enlists the help of K-9 officer Mark Lassiter of Pearl Springs, Tennessee, who tracks Dani down.
Skeptical but curious, Dani sets out on a journey to uncover the secrets of her past and reclaim her true identity. But someone close to her is determined to keep the truth of what happened all those years ago hidden.
A witness with amnesia and a killer willing to murder again to keep their secret.
Fatal Witness is my first Patricia Bradley book, and I'm hooked. In Fatal Witness, Dani Collins doesn't remember much about her life before age 11 or her deceased parents until Deputy Mark Lassiter from Tennessee reaches out on behalf of someone claiming to be her grandma. Curious and desperate for answers about her past, Dani travels to Pearl Springs only to find herself in immediate danger. Mark Lassiter, a military ex-sniper and current K-9 officer, has regrets from his past but is determined to protect Dani at all costs. Even if it means denying the growing attraction between them.
There is a killer on the loose, diamonds that haven't surfaced, more questions than answers, and a budding attraction between Dani and Mark. Patricia Bradley keeps the reader on the edge of their seat as Mark, Dani, and the Russell County Sheriff's Office try to figure out who murdered Dani's parents before they kill again.
Check out Fatal Witness at your local library, purchase it at most retailers, or find it for sale on Amazon.
