My review:  Each book in this series was better than the one before it. This last book in the series was by far my favorite. It had the perfect combination of suspense, personal interaction between characters, and wit and humor. This was a book I couldn’t put down.

Dangerous Testimony focuses on Candace Gallagher and her upcoming testimony in a trial about a gang-related shooting. The gang will stop at almost nothing to make sure Candance doesn’t testify at the trial. Their means of intimidation is no match for Marco though as he meets them challenge for challenge. The action in this book is nonstop.

This book is as much about Marco as it is about Candace. It was nice to see the story focus on Marco since he himself has been a bit of a mysterious figure throughout the series. Marco gets his time in the spotlight and this is nice to see. Dev is a nice addition to the story and his wit and humor were a nice balance to the seriousness of the story.

This book wraps up the series nicely and this reader feels as if there were nothing missing or loose ends that didn’t get tied up. This is a story that fans of suspense are sure to enjoy. A must-read for fans of the genre.

I received a free copy of this book from the author and was not required to write a positive review. All opinions are mine.
