Matthew Poe is the only witness in a case of murder and corruption in the lead mining industry. After an attempt is made on his life, he seeks refuge at Pemberley.
Mr. Darcy, bound by honour and duty to his King and country, agrees to take him in, though his presence puts everyone at Pemberley in danger—including Darcy’s new bride, Elizabeth.
When Mr. Poe’s secret is revealed with disastrous consequences, will Darcy succeed in protecting his loved ones and the witness, or will he be forced to choose between family and honour?
In Cowardly Witness, Ayr Bray masterfully creates a world around Pemberley electrified with the excitement and intrigue of a riveting suspense story.

“From an early age I have always been fascinated by the written word and the mood and atmosphere it creates for a reader; especially those books that affect me and transport me to some far-off place. These are the elements I strive to create in my books. My books in many ways record what most affects me: my feelings and experiences with family, friends, and those I have run into on my life’s journey. My hope is that in my books you will find something that touches you, something which will resonate in your soul and remind you that you are strong and can overcome anything, especially if you have the support of loving friends and family.” – Ayr Bray

Q and A With the Author
What does your writing process look like?
I generally come up with an idea, discuss it with my husband over 5 or 10 walks through the neighborhood. Once my idea is solid, I use Martha Alderson’s Plot Whisperer book to detail out and plot my novels. I then sit down and flesh out the story. Once the story is done, I send it to my editor for story line and content edits. This is when I either have to rewrite the entire story, or can get by with some minor chapter changes. Once we have a solid story we move on to grammar and line edits. It generally takes 2 or 3 rounds to get through these. Once grammar and line edits are done I lay out the book and then we do the final copy edit.
