HOSTILE WITNESS by Rebecca Forster

This intriguing novel was offered free from for Kindle. It sounded interesting and was free, so I downloaded it. It will definitely lead me to purchase others by this author.

Hostile Witness is the first in a series of novels by Ms. Forster and is excellent. The author's other books in her Witness series feature several of the same characters.

Josie Baylor-Bates is an attorney who gave up defending those accused of murder when a woman she successfully defended later kills again. She was guilty after all. Josie leaves her highly successful practice to join a small law firm defending lower-income people. When a former college roommate arrives at her home in hysterics, Josie agrees to visit the woman's teenage daughter, Hannah, in jail. She was arrested for the murder of her step-grandfather. Josie feels compelled to help the teen and agrees to defend her.

Did the teenager murder him because he was abusive, or was it someone else? Josie, with the help of her sweetheart, Archer, discovers the truth. Her lovable dog, Max, is a hero too.

The murder investigations and courtroom manipulations portrayed in this novel are fascinating. Ms. Forster does a wonderful job of it.

I thoroughly enjoyed Hostile Witness and didn't want to put it down. I am under no obligation to do a review, I simply want to.
