DEAD WITNESS, a review by Christine Hart

Yes, it's true, I never get tired of receiving rave reviews about my suspense thriller Dead Witness. Here's one from Christine Hart. Thank you, Christine!  

How far would a mother go to protect her children (5 stars)

Dead Witness is the best kind of rollercoaster ride in the park! A slow ominous beginning rolls forward, building tension as the bumps ahead come into view. By the time our heroine Valerie McCormick is on her vigilante mission to take down a cartel boss where the FBI had failed, sub-plots keep us rocketing along. From her husband's potential betrayal and her brother's brave search for her – to the continuing mystery around her parents' death – Valerie's life is spiraling towards a dark conclusion.

Author Joylene Butler has crafted a skillfully woven narrative around a simple question: How far would a mother go to protect her children? Valerie's actions answer resoundingly in her heroic journey into the dangerous world of psychotic career criminals, armed only with passion and tenacity. In the face of certain death, she discovers the full extent of her physical and emotional capabilities.

Dead Witness is highly recommended for mystery lovers and anyone from BC who would enjoy reading their own small towns threaded into an international thriller.

  1. I know how hard it is to toot your own horn, but it's part of being a writer. Somebody has to do it. Congratulations, Joylene. Christine has captured what makes Dead Witness such a good read. Valerie McCormick is one brave and courageous mother.

  3. Thank you, Cameron and Kaitlyn. I have the middle necklace and I love it. Never fails that someone doesn't ask me where I got it. I like unusual things, especially when they're so pretty.
