    Lizette Henry wakes up one morning and makes a terrifying discovery: She doesn't recognize the face she sees in the mirror. She remembers what she looks like, but her reflection is someone else's. To add to the shock, two years seem to have disappeared from her life. Someone has gone to great and inexplicable lengths to keep those missing years hidden forever. But the past always finds a way to return.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not sure, it just did not come up to the high standard Linda Howard has had in the past. The story line not credible, drags, character building not her usual and she has always put humor in her mysteries and this has none.
    Her usual fans will not be those who enjoy it more so not sure who it would appeal to.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Linda Howard again?

    Yes, this has to be one of her total disconnects.


    What aspect of Carrington MacDuffie’s performance would you have changed?

    Not sure it was her performance or just how much the story line dragged.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was finally over. If people like super secret spy agencies working outside of protocol this might appeal.

    If driving a piece-of-crap tow truck through the seediest part of town with a Smith & Wesson beside her means putting a roof over her son’s head, then Samantha Jones is going to be the best damn repo woman on the books. The streetwalkers, the drug pushers, the bands of looking-for-trouble punks haunting the mean streets at midnight don’t intimidate her. These are her people. The guy she finds bound and bloodied in the trunk of her latest conquest, a flashy new BMW, is a different breed entirely.

    What would have made Shiver better?

    Storyline disjointed and rambling


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Cry No More - Linda Howard


    Did Shannon McManus do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The reader did a good job with voices - she had child, female, male, foreign, etc.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Shiver?

    It really dragged during escape from initial capture and during the safe house.


    Any additional comments?

    I have really liked this author in the past and think this is just a fluke that this one dragged and was not the usual cliff hanger.

    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Witness to be better than the print version?

    Did not read print version, but think audio better for personalizing the individuals in the storyline.


    What other book might you compare The Witness to and why?

    Some of the Catherine Coulter series with Savich and Sherlock - good interplay between two main characters and good suspense.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Last scene after testifying.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Cannot run from the past


    Any additional comments?

    This was a surprise and probably one of my favorites. Have listened to twice and picked up some nuances missed the first time through.
