I really liked learning about the back stories for both Sydney and Max. The traumatic past that Sydney had to overcome molded her into a very different person than she used to be, and opened her up to learning about God. Max was just the opposite. He allowed his past to turn him away from God and he became closed off emotionally. Seeing these two characters connecting, while trying to stay alive, kept the story moving along at a nice pace.
Expert Witness is full of side characters who will keep you guessing. It is hard to know who can be trusted. As one thing after another seems to go wrong for Sydney and Max, finding honorable people to help them is a must, but is easier said than done.
I enjoyed reading this exciting suspense novel and look forward to many more from this author. (4 stars)
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
