HOSTILE WITNESS

A Kate Ford Mystery

by Adams, Leigh

When single mom and computer security specialist Kate Ford is suddenly and mysteriously put on administrative leave, she finds herself drawn into the drama of a lurid kidnapping case with ties to her company.

Kate has enough on her plate dealing with a condition that leaves her extra-sensitive to stimuli, but the case is too juicy to leave untouched.

But what begins as simple curiosity quickly leads her to the country’s darkest corners of power and leaves her and her family the target of a ruthless network of war profiteers, who will stop at nothing to protect their billion-dollar interests in Hostile Witness, the first in this sharp and engaging series.

Leigh Adams teaches at the college level and has also worked as a magazine editor.
