Casey McDaniel works as an advocate for victims rights. She has seen her share of domestic violence and the lives it can wreck. She feels for those she helps but it is hard to help those who are not willing to leave the situation. She is also a key person in the pending case of one of her clients. Her testimony can put him in prison. She also has her plate full with her father who is in the early stages of Alzheimer’s and a sister who never seems to believe anything she says. So when she starts receiving threats and strange mail, she begins to worry that she and her family might be in danger.
Adam Preston III is the Assistant Deputy Attorney for Sussex County in Delaware. He comes from an upstanding family and seems to be an honest upstanding guy. He has met Casey through the horrific crime that was committed against one of her clients. He vows he will do everything he can to put this man behind bars.
Lincoln Tyndall is a lawyer. He met Casey in the hospital cafeteria and they strike up a friendship that is on track to becoming more. He wants to commit only he is unsure and does not want to mess things up. Not to mention, he has a few things he should tell Casey. But will he ever get the chance to explain them before things go wrong?
Casey’s life is full of craziness and she is starting to fear the man she believed killed her client. He seems to be targeting her. Only, as different clues are revealed, she is not so sure of whom she can trust anymore. When she comes face to face with the killer, she knows she is the next to die, and she is determined not to be. But, will it be too late for her?
Don’t Turn Around is a spine tingling tale of betrayal and murder. It touches on topics such as Alzheimer’s disease and Domestic Abuse. Two subjects that should never even exist, but this author uses them in an unobtrusive way that enlightens the reader but does not sermonize each issue. Wonderfully written characters offer more than just their names to the book; they also offer enjoyment, wisdom, love, trust, and a whole other roller coaster ride of emotions that will make this a book you will not want to miss. Be prepared for many twists and turns that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
