Although I got Silent Witness, instead of Hostile Witness, the mix-up was corrected, and I did get Hostile Witness. Josie Baylor-Bates is asked by an old school chum to defend her Daughter from the murder of a high-profile judge, her Step-Grandfather. Hannah is 16, is obsessive-compulsive, and Josie is really torn between taking the case, or not. The story is full of twists & turns, and just when you think you've got it, something else happens.
Somewhere in all the erotica of this book, there's a story. It probably would have lasted 5 pages, but the erotica took up the rest of the book. If that's your bag, then this is the book for you. I'm not, but slogged through it, just to find out how the under-story ended.
Carrie goes off the road, in a snowstorm in MN. When Sheriff Ian tries to help, she steals his cruiser. Then she runs that into a snowbank. He finally arrests her, finds a gun in her purse and so starts the tale of gangsters, bad cops and do-gooders.
This is an awesome book! Ever wonder what it would be like to take back our country, and make it better? Not a coup, for power and control, like almost all coups, but to give the country back to the people. This is a story of Utopia, and hackers and AWESOME computers! I don't know how to tell about this story, without giving it away, but it's a real page-turner and well-worth the "terribly expensive" price of 99 cents.
