Publisher's Summary

Kendall Deaton pulls herself and her baby out of a wrecked car, and a mixture of courage and fear gets her to the top of a ravine, where she flags down help. But she doesn't dare reveal her true identity to the authorities. Instead, she plans her immediate escape. Her perilous flight begins.

The best public defender in Prosper, South Carolina, Kendall had stumbled upon the town's chilling secret - and her marriage to one of the town's most powerful men has become a living hell. Now Kendall is a terrified mother trying to save her child's life...a reluctant witness who knows too much about an insidious evil...and a woman surrounded by forces that will stop at nothing to protect what is "theirs".

What the Critics Say

"This page-turner is a must on any summer beach reading list and a testament to Brown's gifts as a talented storyteller." (Today)
"The push-pull generated by John's memory loss and Kendall's terror sparks a sexual tension that is deftly and vividly consummated, and secrets keep popping out until the last page. Brown's forte is glitch-free, all-over-the-map plotting, and her take on white-trashy behavior pushes just the right buttons." (Publishers Weekly)

    "The Witness"

    Classic Sandra Brown suspense novel. It maintained my attention but it's not one of my favorites, although I still recommend it.

    "Disappointing"

    I've read other Sandra Brown books that were good... this one is not. I found the characters unlikable, unbelievable and the story mired in worn out twists like amnesia.

    Daily commuter relying on Audible to keep awake. I need excitement! If something crazy doesn't happen in the first 20 mins I'm done!

    "Almost Loved It"

    I really enjoyed the story and the ending.

    My only complaint was the voice that the narrator used for the key figure in the story (Kendall) was so irritating. Her voices used during narration and for the other charactors in the story were pretty good, even the men were OK. But Kendall's voice was very grating and felt like nails on a chalk board. There were a couple other female charactors who had voices that were a lot easier on the ears. My only recommendation would be for the Narrator to choose the 'annoying' voice for lesser charactors in future recordings.

    "An easy listen"

    Joyce Bean narrates this story unbelievably well; the characters come to life with the different intonations. It was an easy listen and had moments of suspense and intrigue. Although I don't have a serious criticism, I just didn't find it that entertaining.
