Publisher's Summary

To Rebecca it was a brave decision that led to her freedom from domestic abuse. To Solomon it was the ultimate betrayal.

It's been ten years since Rebecca's testimony saw Solomon locked away. Enough time for the nightmares to recede, the nerves to relax; enough time to rebuild her life and put the past behind her.

Then one day a phone rings in her bedroom - but it's not her phone. Solomon has been in her home, and has a very simple message for her: for each of the ten years he has spent in jail, Rebecca must witness a crime. And, to make matters worse, she has to choose the victims.

Fail to respond and you get hurt. Talk to police and you die. Ready to play? You have sixty seconds to decide...

As the crimes grow more severe, the victims closer to home, Rebecca is forced to confront a past she had hoped was gone forever.

    Story
    "The main character, Rebecca, is weak and annoying"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I have read a great many books about spousal abuse, and I have never seen a less sympathetic female lead.
    The book had a couple surprises so I would think some readers might find this interesting.


    What was most disappointing about Caroline Mitchell’s story?

    I did not like the main character at all. The things she allowed to happen were reprehensible. I kept waiting for her to get a back bone and stand up to the guy.
    I totally agree with one reviewer who commented on some of the ludicrous incidents with the home monitoring system. Rebecca knows Soloman is some computer wizard but she doesn't even think about the phone call from a monitoring company wanting to "upgrade" their home system.
    There are some subjects brought up but never explained or expanded upon. Ie: Solomans school experiences, his sentencing to prison.


    What does Steve West and Elizabeth Knowelden bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I thought the narrators did a very good job especially in light of the material they were reading.
    The voice of Soloman was convincingly threatening and evil.
    .


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

    I was definitely angry at Rebecca and went so far as to yell at her a few times.
    How could she stand by and "witness" the awful things happening to her friends, neighbors and family?


    Any additional comments?

    I obviously did not care for this book at all.

    "no imagination"

    I never quit a book halfway through but this is the second one this week. a story about a violent ex and a very stupid female staying silent and going along with the threats. Irritating story.

    Story
    "How far would you go to protect your child?"
    Any additional comments?

    This was an excellent psychological thriller which makes you ponder how far you would go to protect yourself and your child. Is there a point where you become terrified of what you will do for self preservation?

    Domestic abuse is a difficult topic to discuss and understand if you haven't experienced it first hand, which I hope that you have not. Witness does a great job of taking readers through a horrifying journey of domestic abuse and all that it does entail and all that it could entail.

    This will keep you on the edge of your seat! Seriously brilliant plot and the narrators were excellent. If you like a good crime mystery with definite psychological twists and turns, this one does not disappoint.

    "Loved the book! Loved the performance!"
    Where does Witness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Witness is right up there with the best audio books. I've only listened to about 12 books, but this and another one are my top two.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This book had such a great roller coaster ride. You just aren't sure what's going to happen until it's happening.


    What about Steve West and Elizabeth Knowelden ’s performance did you like?

    I liked that there was a man and a woman voice. It's great to have the duo for multiple POVs.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This was a book, I didn't want to end!


    Any additional comments?

    Just superb!! I can tell you, you will NOT know the ending until you get there!! It’s a shocker! … I was through this book in 3 days! I just gobbled it up.

    "Not So Good"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Audible was very smart about the sample choice they used for this book. The narrators are incredible. The story, however, is just not good. I really wanted to like it but it's just not for me.


    What about Steve West and Elizabeth Knowelden ’s performance did you like?

    They are both excellent.

    Nearly gave up on this, storyline not believable.
    It was ok, very predictable.
    Would have liked a twist.
    The only twist was predictable from the beginning.
    I made myself persevere to the end.
