True Witness

Brodie Farrell Mysteries

Jo Bannister

Minotaur Books

A teenage boy is beaten to death on Dimmock's derelict pier. Detective Jack Deacon is convinced they have the murderer; he just needs a positive identification to lock him up for good. But the only witness is astronomer Daniel Hood, in his own way a man as determined as Jack.

Compelling as the circumstantial evidence is against the suspected killer, Daniel cannot be certain that this was the man he saw from his window. Nothing anybody says - or does - can convince him to take the easy way out and implicate a man without satisfying his own conscience first.

With the whole town baying for blood, the only person who understands is Brodie Farrell, who steps in to defend her friend. Using her uncanny knack for "finding things," perhaps she can unravel part of this mystery and ease Daniel's burden. . .

A taut, compelling exploration of love and honor, True Witness is the exciting new crime novel featuring Brodie Farrell and Daniel Hood.

He thought she was the most perfect thing he'd ever seen.At five years old she was poised on the cusp of life, all its possibilities opening before her, the magical nowhere she sprang from still close enough behind to clothe her in its wonder.
