Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Nominee, Romance, 2013

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. Her own security is supplemented by a fierce dog and an assortment of firearms. She keeps to herself, saying little, revealing nothing. Unfortunately, that seems to be the quickest way to get attention in a tiny southern town.

The mystery of Abigail Lowery intrigues local police chief Brooks Gleason, on both a personal and a professional level. Her sharp, logical mind, her secretive nature, her unromantic viewpoints leave him fascinated but frustrated. He suspects that Abigail needs protection from something, even if he doesn’t know what - and that her elaborate defenses hide a story that must be revealed.

Accustomed to two-bit troublemakers, Gleason is about to walk into the sights of very powerful and dangerous men. And Abigail Lowery, who has built a life based on security and self-control, is at risk of losing both.

    "Awesome!!! Awesome!!! Awesome!!!"

    I am becoming a Nora Roberts Fan!! This book didn't disappoint. It is full of intrigue a few twist and turns and even some good Romance. I'm sure I will listen to it again. If you are looking for a page turner this might be for you. I even had a few tears. I guess you can say it covered all my emotions.

    "5 Stars Yes!"
    Where does The Witness [Brilliance Audio Edition] rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 5 best!


    What other book might you compare The Witness [Brilliance Audio Edition] to and why?

    The girl with dragon tattoo will be my reference without the unneeded language throughout even though I did like it, I appreciated The Witness even more where cursing was minimal in comparison or in properly placed areas. Overall, I just can't say enough about this book. It was over and beyond what I had hoped to hear.


    What does Julia Whelan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Julia had me feeling, seeing and guessing. Was surprised so many times that my guesses were incorrect and so pleased at how it progresses.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were so many emotions rolling through this audible. I didn't want to stop listening. I did laugh, cry and stopped in shock a few times listening. Great listen!


    Any additional comments?

    I've been searching for a book with a murder, detective mystery and I got so much more with this. It is a favorite I will go back to for many listens. Thank you!!

    "The best Nora Roberts book ."

    I have read most of Nora Roberts books and this is my favorite. I go back and read it over again. Her books have been very disappointing lately.

    "Nora Roberts does it again!!"

    As always Nora Roberts is an author that gives you a story that keeps you totally glued on the characters as well, as the story line. Each story is written, I think, to allow the reader to have a part in that story, as well, as the characters.
