It's two in the morning and an aging cargo ship lies off the Port of Los Angeles. Deep in the bowels of the vessel, an important man is dead and the woman who killed him is mortally wounded. On shore another man staggers out of the sea determined to save the woman before she dies or the ship sails. Exhausted and terrified he goes to the only person he trusts to help, Josie Bates. He brings with him a history she can't ignore, a problem that seems insurmountable, and a plea she can't refuse. But Josie is up against international law, maritime justice, a Port Authority that doesn't want anything to get in the way of profit, the U.S. Coast Guard that dances to the tune of politics, and a captain who swears the people in question were never on his ship. With the clock ticking, Josie becomes ever more desperate to prove the woman is real and get her safely ashore. What Josie doesn't know is that the sands of time that are running out may be her own.

I was thrilled to find this book and devoured it in one night. Thank you, Ms. Forster, for penning another fantastic “Witness” book. Loved seeing all the characters once again and especially loved seeing how Billy and Hannah have matured and grown. So please keep this series coming...but don’t neglect Finn! I’m hungry for a new “Relation” saga too.
