Penguin Putnam
A riveting new novel from the internationally bestselling author of Retribution.

Cops are dying. Hunted down while on patrol, they are being murdered while trying to protect the citizens of Miami from this very type of crime. Dominick Falconetti, an agent with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, is charged with heading a task force to investigate. Details at the crime scenes point to a drug connection, and when a highly-placed gang member disappears, it reinforces Dominick's suspicions that these cops were all involved in something unsavory.

C. J. Townsend, the state prosecutor he has loved for the past three years-ever since they met on the infamous Cupid investigation-is getting the calls in the middle of the night as well. As the state attorney who put Florida's last serial killer behind bars, she's the logical choice to help stop this one. But before long, C.J. begins to suspect that she knows an even more terrible secret than Dominick does about why these cops are being murdered.

A tense, gripping crime drama set against the richly detailed background of the Miami legal system and police department,

Last Witness is an extraordinary novel.

Got about 1/3 of the way and decided there were too many characters to keep track of. Loved her first book, Retribution, but this one was taking too long to get into.
