Reviews Lone Witness (Atlanta Justice, #2)

  • Dawn
    My Thoughts:I enjoyed this one so much more than the first one! It starts off with a bang and kept me going all the way through the end. I really enjoyed Sophie. I loved getting to know her. I loved to see how she was determined to fight for justice. When things got tough, she didn't back down.There is a lot of supporting characters that I'd love to see more of. I know that the third book will probably focus on Sophie's friend Mia. I received a c...

    Lone Witness had a lot of danger and a sweet romance story. I love the way Rachel Dylan writes legal thrillers; I can follow along with the story and not get lost in the legalese. In Lone Witness, Sophie witnesses a double homicide and is the only eyewitness. The killer is the younger brother of the head of one of the biggest gangs in Atlanta. Suffice it to say, she might be in a bit of danger because of that.I liked the romance between Sophie an...

    I really enjoyed this book overall. I haven’t read much by this author so I didn’t really know what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised with this book. Lone Witness, while it isn’t an action packed suspense, it keeps you turning the page. There are many POVs in this book which I actually didn’t mind. It shows the story from both the good and the guilty side. I haven’t read many suspense books when the POV was the bad guys side a lot b...

Not only did Sophie and Cooper have...

  • Kara
    Another great legal thriller from Dylan! I had trouble getting into the story at first, but the courtroom scenes were so authentic and loved how Sophie was prepared to being on the witness stand. The author has SUCH a talent for putting together realistic cases in fiction that make the reader feel as though this is EXACTLY how lawyers operate on a daily basis. Even though I never connected with Sophie in this story, she has an amazing heart and s...

    Having read “Deadly Proof,” I was greatly anticipating this second book of the series. For those wondering, it can easily be read as a stand-alone, as it features different characters than book one.It took me about five chapters to get into the story, as there was a bit of info dump. But once the story began, I was intrigued by who was who and what all was really going on. Dylan does a great job with twisting things and making you suspect the...

    Sophie Dawson is a prosecutor in the White Collar Crime Unit, working on financial fraud cases. It should be less dangerous than criminal prosecutions, and it is … until she witnesses a robbery that leaves two people dead, and identifies the perpetrator as the brother of one of the city’s gang leaders. And she’s the lone witness.I really enjoyed Deadly Proof, the first book in Rachel Dylan’s Atlanta Justice series.But I didn’t enjoy Lon...

  • Patricia Bradley
    It was fascinating to read the behind-the-scenes details of courtroom proceedings for both the prosecuting side and the defense side. I've always understood the prosecutor's side - I mean we all want the bad guy brought to justice. But Dylan made me think how quickly we are to believe someone guilty if they have an unsavory background and that defense attorneys are there to make sure everyone has a fair trial. But I digress. Lone Witness is a gr...
  • Madison

Lone Witness is inspirational suspense meets legal drama, and features two cases that become deadly and one woman who dares to stand and fight for justice.Sophie Dawson is devoted to finding justice for those who can’t fight for themselves, and a recent career move into white-collar crime as a prosecutor gives her the opportunity to do just that.

    Warning: This book will hold you in its grip until you reach the heart-palpitating, breath-snatching conclusion so clear your calendar and prepare to settle down for a binge read. Wouldn't hurt to have an extra store of chocolate on hand as well as a security blankie because it's that kind of a suspense.Tension builds as the complicated plots twists and turns and leads the unsuspecting reader into a maze of corruption, deception and danger. Cold ...

    4.5 Stars! Rachel Dylan has upped her game in this one. It’s suspense from beginning to end. With being a witness and an attorney the action is non stop...this keeping the reader guessing. Except that at the end, I didn’t fall for the big surprise. I knew...which is probably just because I read a lot in this genre, but it made it somewhat anticlimactic for me. I was also a bit perturbed that the FBI couldn’t figure it all out ( yes, I reali...

    Fans of romantic suspense authors such as Lynette Eason, Patricia Bradley, and Cara Putman will likely enjoy this series from Rachel Dylan featuring a trio of female attorneys.
