"AN INTENSE THRILL RIDE OF THE UNEXPECTED!"
Rachel Douglas is excited as she plans a trip in a seaside community to work on her novel, and support herself as a waitress. Her anticipation to rent her friend's beach-house finally becomes reality. However, shortly after signing Sarah's lease, Rachel learns that she may become involved in something much more than what she bargained for, hoping her dream doesn't turn into a nightmare. Suddenly, Rachel finds out about a murder that took place in a nearby parking lot as she meets other people in Sunset. Frank and Dennis reveal dark secrets, Sarah begins to show strange behavior, and Rachel begins to develop fears as she struggles with her novel. In a time-frame of two weeks, a police investigation is pending, a murder must be solved, and pieces to the mysterious puzzle must fit in their proper places.

The compelling story has you hooked in the first few chapters, the unique characters come to life, and the colorful setting of an ocean-view is picture-perfect. Several events unfold as the reader is introduced to gangsters, hit-men, dangerous threats, and sizzling romance as the interactions between the characters become more-and-more interesting. Who becomes a suspect, will the crime be solved, and will justice be served? "THE SUNSET WITNESS" is intriguing, entertaining, and as thrilling as 'The Intruder!'
