    From the blockbuster bestselling author of the Eve Duncan novels comes a new, stand alone thriller about a woman with a photographic memory who has lived her life in the Witness Protection Program. What she once put her entire family in jeopardy and now, years later, her cover is blown. She’s on the run, and the lives of those she holds dear hang in the balance. As only Iris Johansen can do, you won’t see the twists coming.

    Story
    What would have made The Perfect Witness better?

    If the story was actually what was advertised.


    Has The Perfect Witness turned you off from other books in this genre?

    If I had know what genre this story really was I would never have purchased it.


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

    Not for me


    Any additional comments?

    The description of this book is VERY misleading. It talks about the 'witness's' photographic memory and witness protection. That sounded intriguing to me. However, within a few minutes of the story beginning you learn that the witness actually has what can only be described as mystical / clairvoyant powers. That is of no interest to me. I really feel I was mislead by how Audible described this story.

  • Thankless in Death: In Death, Book 37

    For Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPSD, the job is a useful reminder of what she has to be grateful for this season. Hosting Roarke's big Irish family for the holiday may be challenging, but it’s a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood. Other couples aren’t as lucky as Eve and Roarke. The Reinholds, for example, are lying on the floor of their Downing Street apartment, stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunned - and even more heartbroken by the overwhelming evidence that they were murdered by their own son.

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

    Someone who enjoys following the heinous killings of a psychopath.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not another Dallas novel by Robb


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Susan Ericksen?

    yes


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. I have been reading and listening to this series from the start. This one has no plot, lacks the usual interesting dialogue, and was incredibly blatant (the story begins with the killing of a woman with 53 knife thrusts and then goes quickly to a man hit 30 times with a bat.)
