I've read many books by Lindsay McKenna, while this one was okay, it wasn't my favorite. I did enjoy it and it was a very easy read.

The murder mystery in this book was very interesting and kept my interest. I got frustrated with the supposedly "love" story however as I didn't feel the characters had much chemistry but I liked both characters and thought they were good in their roles but not much in the romance part.

Loved this Romantic Suspense novel. It had everything you could want...military presence, honor, romance tension, and most of all a great tale of suspense. It kept me turning page after page to see if justice would be served by the end of the book or if would it remain unresolved. One word of warning, it's not a "bodice ripper" as we used to call them. The romance is very discreet so it may not be everyone's cup of tea!

Lindsay McKenna is a master of military romantic suspense, and each subsequent story she writes proves why. SILENT WITNESS is no different, with its mix of intriguing characters, a thrilling story line, and ever-growing passion.

Agent Ellen Tanner is a redhead who likes long denim skirts, loose blouses, Birkenstock sandals, and dangly earrings. She's also a licensed psychotherapist, not to mention employed by the Office of Inspector General in the Department of Defense. Until recently, she's resided in Washington, D.C., but now she's in California-and assigned to work with JAG Lieutenant Jim Cochrane. The Pentagon came up with the idea of using OIG agents to help out snowed-under JAG agents who are short-staffed and buried under work. With her new one-year assignment in California, Ellen is now the partner of Lt. Cochrane-a man who clearly sees her as nothing but the newest pain in his rear end.

Jim Cochrane doesn't want help. He doesn't need it. Well, he might need it a little, because he is buried under piles of work. But now that he's saddled with a new partner-who just happens to be a woman, not to mention a civilian-he's less than pleased. As his drawl gets thicker and his height seems to increase, he's determined to do everything within his power to get this over with as quickly as possible. It might have worked, too, if it wasn't for the death of Top Gun instructor Susan Kane.

Now Ellen and Jim are working in really close proximity, trying to find a killer. As if Jim's good ole boy demeanor and his obvious disdain of her weren't bad enough, the passion that keeps sparking up between them is driving Ellen mad. Sure, the guy's handsome, but they've got a killer to track, and she has no time-nor desire-to pursue personal relationships. Or so she thought.

As these two hard-headed people-one military, one civilian-work together to catch a murderer, the danger becomes more and more real, as does their desire. Will Ellen and Jim find out who killed Susan Kane before the danger gets too close?

Ms. McKenna has done an excellent job once again of combining military suspense with romance, and the result is a winner in SILENT WITNESS.

In the Navy, blood runs thicker than water....

Female Top Gun instructor is found dead .. is it murder or suicide? Family dynamics plays a huge role, as well as the Navy, itself. Nice little romance thrown in.
