Evil’s Witness


Autumn Jordon’s fabulous romantic suspense, Evil’s Witness, is a real nail biter and I mean that literally. I should have worn gloves while reading. This fast-paced story with all of its twists and turns captured my attention from the start and held me riveted to the end.  Both the central characters, FBI agent John Dolton and young nurse/divorced mother Stephanie Boyd, were so well fleshed out it felt as if I could sit down and have coffee with them, and I liked each of them–John for sure, very hot while still being appealingly male–but also Stephanie, which isn’t always the case. She’s a strong heroine, but not over the top beyond all possibility–a pet peeve of mine.  Nor did the author rely on creating a bitchy female to provide conflict; there’s plenty in the couple’s past and present circumstances to assure plenty of roadblocks. The romance between them was palpable and convincing, the chemistry sizzled.

The secondary characters were also well crafted and supported the story.  They weren’t just along for the ride.  As for the villain(s), chillingly realistic, but I definitely don’t want to have coffee with them.  I haven’t read much romantic suspense, normally being drawn to historical, but I’ve seen plenty of movies in this genre and Evil’s Witness would make a super movie.  I really enjoyed this book and give it a high-five!

Story Blurb:

The Zosimosky Files

Elementary school nurse Stephanie Boyd’s ordinary world changes forever when she and her children witness a blood bath. To escape the wrath of the Russian Mafia, she has no choice but to help the FBI uncover the Mafia’s mole inside the U.S. Treasury. While on the run with the handsome agent who is willing to die for them, Stephanie learns the meaning of self-sacrifice and love.

Agent John Dolton’s only break in solving the case that cost him everything is a couple of kids and a beautiful woman. But keeping his witnesses safe seems impossible when their every move is foreseen by their enemy. Within weeks, Stephanie and her children soften the loner’s heart and John allows himself to let go of his all-consuming sorrow.

This time John vows not to fail to protect the family he loves.
