Daniel Hood knows pain-both physically and emotionally. so when he happens upon a murder in progress he does everything he can to stop it. He fails. Not being able to identify the man the whole town thinks did it leads Daniel to see the darker side of man-he is beaten, his house torched and more. Daniel fights to remain true to himself ’til the very end with the help of his one true friend, Brodie.
True Witness presents an interesting moral dilemma and is very much a character study. The pace is intense and hurried. Despite the premise of much pain, there is no gore to the story. Set in Ireland, but has an anywhere feel to it. #2 in Brodie Farrell & Daniel Hood Mysteries. 2002, 263 pages.
