Book Description

Valerie McCormick is a wife and mother from small town Canada. While visiting Seattle, she becomes the only witness to the brutal seaside murder of two FBI agents. When she flees to the nearest police station to report the crime, she becomes caught up in a web of international intrigue and danger. Suddenly, she and her family are in the sights of ruthless criminals bent on preventing her from testifying against the murderer. Even with FBI protection, Valerie is not safe. Whisked away from her family and all that is familiar to her, Valerie fights back against the well-intentioned FBI to ultimately take control over her life with every ounce of fury a mother can possess.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart stopping story, heartwarming heroine December 7, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this thriller. This was my first buy from Butler, and I'm so glad I bought it because I've been looking for a really great women's thriller writer. Being a plot- and character-lover, I've always had to compromise when I buy thrillers. They're usually either/or. Not with Dead Witness. I instantly warmed to Valerie and her struggles with what she saw. As the story progressed, I kept myself up past my bedtime to simply see her through the end of each chapter! I highly recommend this if you like thrillers with meat AND heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars A THRILL RIDE TO SELF-DISCOVERY May 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When Valerie McCormick wins a trip to Seattle, she is eager to step outside her ordinary life as a housewife and mother who lives in Prince George, BC. She and her husband Ed have financial problems, and the humdrum of their lives as they struggle along has robbed them of the closeness they once shared.

But what happens to Valerie on that fateful day in Seattle will inform the rest of her life.

Out of the blue and totally unexpectedly, she witnesses a man killing some other men; when she reports it to the police, she is unprepared for the events that unfold.

At home again, she is also stunned by what is expected of her. Will she be safe until the trial, once the FBI agents capture the killer? And once they do, and as the trial is about to start, what will happen to totally threaten everything she loves and knows?

Who can Valerie trust in the weeks and months ahead? Just when she thinks she has found safety, everything unravels. Who is tipping off her whereabouts to the now escaped murderer? What has to happen before she is finally safe again? Or will she ever be safe?

Dead Witness takes the reader on a thrilling journey as one woman defies all the boundaries of her previous life and learns that she can only count on herself. Along the way, she discovers that sometimes the safe path isn't the best choice, and once in awhile one has to stretch to truly find oneself. I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Valerie; I admired the FBI Agent Mike Canaday; and disliked Valerie's husband Ed from the very first time he appeared on the page. Every character felt real and helped me connect to this exciting story, which earned five stars from me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Thriller January 27, 2012
By Edith
Format:Kindle Edition
Dead witness is a brilliant thriller that hooked me from the start and never lessened its hold on me. I loved the main characters, very realistically drawn and engaging, and even found the villains intriguing. A great cocktail of tension, conflict and emotion. Butler takes us through North America, from Canada to the US to Mexico and back in a believable and engaging plot. I'll be watching out for more books by Joylene Nowell Butler.

5.0 out of 5 stars Suspense With a Bit of Downhome March 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Anything written by Joylene Butler promises to keep you on the edge of your seat. She is the master of suspense. I read her other novel and loved it, and this one is equally good. But I guess the part I like the best about Joylene Butler, is that her stories both take place in Beautiful British Columbia, in the town of Prince George. It's not New York, or LA, or Paris. Just a small B.C. town like I grew up in.
