The last thing Chelsea Adams wants is to see another courtroom. Especially since her grief-stricken niece Kerra Fraye is coming for a visit. With Chelsea tied up as a juror, Kerra has nothing better to do then watch the murder trial. Though her presence isn't illegal, she could easily find herself in danger and that's what worries her aunt. Working together like the pieces of a finely-crafted Swiss clock, the characters in DREAD CHAMPION (4.5) by Brandilyn Collins play out their roles. The crime scene is so vivid you can practically smell the salt air and taste the gritty beach sand. This is another masterpiece that keeps the reader utterly engrossed. (Oct., 416 pp., $12.99)
