It was 12 years ago that a young woman named Elizabeth foolishly allowed a seductive man with a Russian accent to lure her away from the nightclub where she’d been drinking in defiance of her controlling mother. The events that followed changed her life forever.
Now, a reclusive woman known as Abigail Lowery lives in a small town in the Ozarks, where she works as a freelance designer of sophisticated security systems. Her personal security involves a fierce dog and an assortment of firearms…fully loaded. Needless to say, Abigail keeps to herself, a situation police chief Brooks Gleason finds intriguing as he wonders what makes this infuriatingly attractive woman tick. Her logical mind, her secretive nature, her unromantic viewpoints only add to her allure. But Brooks’ fascination is frustrated by Abigail’s obvious need for protection. What is the story that she’s gone to such pains to hide?
The Witness has all the ingredients for a top-notch thriller—a quirky, unforgettable heroine, a rugged hero and a riveting plotline. But, as always, #1 bestselling author Nora Roberts kicks it up more than a few notches for a pulse-pounding page-turner impossible to put down…or forget.

I love Nora Roberts and this book was great up until the end, which was VERY disappointing. Nora, you should have spent more time on the ending after such a big build up. It took about three pages to solve it and that just fell flat.......
This woman just continues to knock them out - great summer read.

I absolutely loved the two main characters. The story was very well written and kept me interested the whole time. I felt sad when I turned the last page and there was no more story to read.

Read this one really fast, great story and characters, as I've come to expect from the best author around. Please keep it up Ms Roberts, can't wait for your next one!!
Read this in one day. Fast paced. Witty dialog. Interesting characters. Though I would have preferred a more detailed and fleshed out ending - it seemed kind of rushed.
