Publisher's Summary

"I KNOW THE FAMILY SECRET."
Amanda Griffin is on the run. Eight years ago, she disappeared after witnessing a terrible crime. Now her family thinks she's dead, but she's back in town...desperate to find a way to protect the ones she loves.

"PAY ME TO GO AWAY."
Police Chief Luke Granger is determined to find out who is behind the threats against Amanda and her sisters. With danger pressing in, there isn't much time, and Luke must put everything on the line.

Chief Granger and homicide detectives Connor and Marsh will do whatever it takes to stand in harm's way for the sake of the three Griffin women. It's no longer professional - it's personal. But chances are that at least one of them will fail....And it's going to take a faith deeper than any of them currently knows to stand and confront the danger still to come.

    "Dee Henderson Never Disappoints"

    Dee Henderson still proves that she can write a great suspense novel and also show God's love, too. "The Witness" proves that. I will pick up and read anything that she writes anytime. I read her novels like many read John Grishom. Dee Henderson can pack a punch with the best of suspense authors and still show love and compassion. I hope to read more of her books for many years to come!

    "fun"
    Would you listen to The Witness again? Why?

    I like Dee Henderson's books. I would definitely read The Witness again. I did find it to be a bit slower moving than her O'Malley Series however.

    "Not Dee's Best"

    I love Dee Henderson, I have purchased all of her books except for two. This is not one of Dee best, both her O'Malloy and Uncommon Hero's series was excellent however this book was not very entertaining. It had slow plot development and it was just not good. In fact I did not even finish the book. Purchase at your own risk.

    "Awesome Book - difficult to listen to"

    The book is great ... the only problem is that it's difficult to listen to Lynn Brooks, the narrator - she pauses in really unusual places in her sentences - apparently commas and other punctuation mean nothing to her. It makes it very choppy. The book I give 5 stars, the narration only about 1 1/2.

    "Great story, great reading"

    I love the story, it is a favorite. The reading added even more to it. The narrator does a good job distinguishing between different voices, and reads at just the right pace. There is even a different sound quality to voices coming over a phone or radio. Thoroughly enjoyed this audio book.

    "Not sure about the story..."

    because the narration was not the best. The disjointed phrasing was distracting and made it difficult to follow. I am usually a big fan of Dee Henderson and repeatedly re-listen to her books...I keep forgetting that this one is hers and I don't remember the story line. Giving the story 3 stars based on my fondness for her other books...

    "Don't waste your money"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I thought this book was written by a teenager! It was so trite. It took me months to get through this audio book. I stayed with it I suppose to find out who the murderer was. It had little character development, a non plausible story and trivial conversation between the characters. It was nonsense. And even at the end when you find out who did it, its not explained why.


    What could Dee Henderson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Have a plot, well rounded characters and better descriptions. She is no a good writer.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator was awful at male voices. You could barely tell who was talking.


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

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    No

    "The witness"

    Good read. Hard to stop for work. I have enjoyed other books along these lines.

    "Characters unrealistic for me"

    The concept of the story is interesting and the initial introduction of the characters is well done. Unfortunately, the character of Luke is very hard for me to accept as credible. I have 12 years of personal experience working for a police dept, am married to a cop, my son is a cop and I still work directly with law enforcement personnel on a regular basis. Of all the cops I've worked with, am friends with and know through other people I've never met someone who acts or talks like Luke - that doesn't mean he doesn't exist, I just have not encountered him. I have a tendency to connect characters in books with people I know which helps them to become real for me - I can't do it with this story. I mean no offense by my comments, just sharing my lack of connection to the character. I wish you well with your continued writing.
