When the chief finally tosses her a case, she's thrilled until she gets a look at the scene and realizes he's probably setting her up to be exiled once and for all: the victim is unidentified, and there are no witnesses, and no leads. Just the body, chopped into pieces and dropped in a Dumpster - gruesome enough to ensure that, once again, the media will be following Lena's every move.

This book's plot is not only boring but not believable. Not really worth the time or money; as a fan of Michael Connelly genre, this is NOT comparable.
Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.
Okay, I can recommend this as an entirely forgettable, but useful listen if you need something to distract your mind while tread-milling. Ellis is a commercial writer. He knows all about pace, narrative, story arcing... Yep, he's got all that stuff in his tool kit. But I really didn't much care about Lena Gamble's odd struggles with her superiors. Instead, I grumbled about another lazy writer who found contention in the old chestnut of inter office friction. But.. but... plot twisties overcame that objection and hid some of the endings predictability. Well, sorta....
Need a safe police procedural to fill a commute? The Lost Witness will do that, especially since Deanna Hurst SIZZLES as a narrator. She can do believable men's voices! I'll look for her name from now on.
This was yet another gripping read from Ellis, replete with multiple twists and turns. Within a couple of chapters I was hooked. I could not recommend this book more strongly.. cannot wait to get started on the next one!
This book kept me wanting more and there was always a little twist in the story to keep you guessing. Amazing!!!

This book was very mind blowing and the suspense was intense. This is a must buy and the ending was awesome
I choose this book because it was narrated by Deanna Hurst and the book sounded interesting. I'm so glad I did! Robert Ellis has a new fan. I was blown away by the way he formed an assassin into a facinating character you won't be able to forget. Lots of surprises in this book! I'm hoping for many more Lena Gamble novels.
