Rebecca Forster brings the very heart of politics and the law to life in the pages of her best-selling Witness Series.
Once a hot-shot criminal defense attorney, Josie Bates abandoned her fast-track career when her spectacular Los Angeles courtroom win became a devastating personal tragedy. Now, working at a small practice in Hermosa Beach, Josie cautiously rebuilds her life, opening her heart to Archer, an emotionally vulnerable ex-cop, and Hannah, a troubled teen. But the tranquility of the beach life is no guarantee of peace and Josie rises to meet the challenges of a world where the stakes are high and to lose is lethal. With twists and turns, cliff hangers and red herrings, this suspense-filled, seven-book series explores the dark side of the law, the strength of real love, the intrusion of politics, the unbreakable bonds of family, and the immense power of the righteous few who stand strong in the face of pure evil.
