A great blend of mystery, suspense, and romance.
What common ground can Ellie Philips, manager of her father's senatorial campaign, find with Mark Denton, a former Navy Seal assigned to protect Ellie when threats are made after she witnesses a bank robbery? Burned by a former fiancé, Ellie sees Mark as a risk taker, a man she could perhaps trust with her safety, if that was his job, but never with her heart. As a series of people die, each one closer to Ellie and each death leaving insufficient clues, can even an expert like Mark keep Ellie alive?
Christy Barritt does a masterful job of ratcheting up the suspense, both the danger and the romantic tension, as she guides the story through the twists and turns of a four-dimensional maze that leaves the reader guessing until the very end. In keeping with the romantic-suspense genre, the thriller-level action takes place mostly off stage. But there is plenty on stage to keep the reader turning the pages or pressing the forward button on their e-reader.
If you enjoy romantic suspense, you are sure to like Christy Barritt's latest release, Key Witness. If you like Key Witness, there are more stories to come in The Security Experts series.
