On September 11, 2001, Jennifer Sinclair, a young Texan living in London, saw her homeland attacked: the World Trade centers, the Pentagon, and a plane that crashed in a field in Pennsylvania. It was difficult to be an American in a foreign country, even an ally of America’s, following these terrorist events. Now married to Colin Sinclair, a senior British detective, she never expected the climate of terrorism from the United States to sweep across the Atlantic and bring an undercurrent of fear to the United Kingdom. Early in 2002 a terrorist attack occurs in London. Then a new danger appears on the quaint streets of Hampstead, her northwest London home.
This New Scotland Yard crime suspense novel is peopled with unforgettable, complex characters. Jenny, the female protagonist, must learn how to overcome psychological trauma. Will Sergeant Casey, one of the strong male characters, be able to use his Special Forces warrior’s mindset to help her deal with her potential danger? Can an ex-Royal Army chaplain provide comfort and hope in the face of grief and loss? Find the answers in this intense, moving, and compelling sequel to The Witness.
