Who knows what dark secrets hide in the southern wiregrass.

After seven long years in prison, Colt Hudson is finally returning to Blake County, Georgia. But in his hometown, he's treated like just another criminal-with good reason. The scion of a tight-knit southern clan, Colt's family is deeply involved in one of the most dangerous meth operations in Georgia. An organized drug ring that authorities have worked for years to break up.

Colt's early release from prison comes with strings attached-a deal with narcotics squad commander Tim Dawson, who wants information that could help bust the family business. But when the drug agent who put Colt away seven years ago turns up dead, a dangerous conspiracy begins to unravel.

Tenacious lawyer Maggie Reynolds finds herself drawn into the case as she uncovers a shocking cover-up by the Sheriff's office. As she navigates a labyrinth of deceit and corruption, Maggie must fight to uncover the truth...even if it means putting her own life on the line.

With a gripping plot, complex characters, and twists that will keep you on the edge of your seat, THE WIREGRASS WITNESS is a must-read for fans of John Grisham and Michael Connelly.

A new author to me with a plot that’s part police procedural, crime mystery and part legal case. It has most everything I enjoy reading about. This is third in a series I hadn’t read before, I didn’t feel lost and would read more. The setting in small town Georgia is dripping in small town politics, opinions and secrets.
Maggie and Tim are married and have careers that practically ensures marital strife. He’s the County Sheriff and she’s left the prosecution’s office to open a private practice. This means no pillow talk about their respective work days. Choices will arise during this case, loyalty to justice, upholding the law, and defending a client at what cost.
A son is pitted against his father who is a longtime drug trafficker, money laundering criminal, but has evaded charges by sacrifices no normal human would even consider. The son is released early from jail with strings attached. He will be undercover gleaning evidence against his wily father. Tim is heading the narcotics unit with his investigator, Trevor. They want to take the organization down. Maggie has been approached by the father to be on retainer for any future business advice he may need. Things quickly escalate with deaths and murder, eventually culminating in a grand jury. It was fascinating to see the cat and mouse game between father and son play out. The legalities are well explained and interesting. I couldn’t read fast enough to see how it would be resolved. In the end will anyone really win? Is Tim’s wife setting him up just so she can protect her client? Is the attorney side going to win or will she remember how much she loves her husband, the Sheriff? It kept me guessing and I’m happy to have discovered a new author.
Thanks to NetGalley, Joe Cargile, and Severn River Publishing for the digital advance reader copy of “The Wiregrass Witness” Blake County Legal Thriller #3. These are all my own honest personal thoughts and opinions given voluntarily without compensation.
