Overview

Appearing before the Senate Select Committee on Eastern European crime, Josie Bates testifies passionately about the brutal Albanian blood feud that has sent Hannah into hiding with Billy Zuni and Archer on a quest to find them. While Senator Patriota, the man sure to be the next president of the United States, promises his patronage Josie isn’t convinced he was even listening—but someone was.

Charging through the crush of bodies, evading security, a frantic man launches himself at Josie. Toppling her to the ground, he pushes something into her hands, puts his lips against her ear and whispers five words that will send her from the icy winter of Washington, D.C. to the tropical warmth of Hawaii in search of Hannah. What Josie finds instead is a flamboyant ex-pat who deals in pineapple and hula dancers, and a Victorian compound on the infamous island of Molokai where she uncovers a horrific, long buried truth…a truth that will change her life forever if she stays alive long enough to live it.

As usual Ms. Forrester keeps us on the edge of our sits in her Witness series once again. We find Josie, not in the court room but on a quest for Hannah and Billy.While this chapter gets bogged down in Washington secrets and ,often times, confusing characters it does tell a story of an era, long time ago.While I found it different then the previous "high drama" books this one left me a little dissapointed. I had higher hopes for more of the beloved characters of Archer ( only present in text/voice mails) Hannah ( mentioned but not really included) and Billy. Ms. Forrester certainly takes us on an adventure but seems to have misplaced her main characters for more world-wide headlines then continued story lines. Please, put Josie Bates back into the court room .

Rebecca Forster continues to amaze me with her creativity. This latest installment in the favorite Josie Bates Thriller series finds Josie and Archer both searching for Hannah and Billy in different locations. A big part of the story takes place in Hawaii where she is helped by a local who turns out to be one of my favorite characters from all of her books. This is a great series and you don't want to miss the surprises in this one.

Ms Forster's witness series has been captivating. Have read each one, & could NOT put them down. Interesting characters. Actually a great read, that spins a tale that actually ALL comes nicely together at the end.  Added to my Favorite Authors LIST. Unsure why now tho, None of Ms Forster's ebooks are no longer available at B&N. Hopefully this is just an oversight on someone's part  & will soon be fixed. As her next book is due in Nov.

I like stories with a political undertone and Rebecca Forster did a remarkable of weaving the many elements to make Forgotten Witness the thrilling story it is and an exciting book from the start to the finish. Its undertones brings to mind the story Triple Agent Double Cross, The Key to Rebecca. The details are well observed.

I was disappointed in this installment of the Josie Bates series, particularly since the characters we've met in the past were totally lacking. I also found the political shenanigans difficult to decipher but maybe that's just me. The novel is certainly well written.

With each new installment of Rebecca Forster’s “The Witness” series, I’m surprised at the different directions she finds to take the story. At the end of Eyewitness (the previous book in the series), we were left a bit of a cliffhanger. The main storyline came to a conclusion, but protagonist Josie Bate’s ward, Hannah, also went missing. Forgotten Witness has two main story threads that are interwoven through the book. One follows Archer, Josie’s boyfriend/fiancé, as he follows up on a set of clues in search of Hannah. Forster tells this part of the story, keeping it always in the back of the reader’s mind (just like it is always nagging at Josie), partially using a clever technique that I’ll let the reader discover on their own.  The other story thread involves Josie as she follows another path in search of Hannah. She stumbles onto something completely unexpected which answers one of the lingering questions many readers (and Josie) have had through the entire series. However, it also generates many new questions which Josie attempts to answer. Something new for this series that I especially enjoyed was the way it integrated real world issues, some of them very current, into the story. The main story line comes to a nice conclusion and, as always, also left me ready for more, with a couple guesses as to where we’ll be going with Josie next. I’ll probably be wrong once again. **Originally written for "Books and Pals" book blog. May have received a free review copy. **

I’ve been anticipating the next installment of my favorite legal thriller series with Josie Bates and Rebecca Forster has not let me down. Like sitting down with an old friend, Forster pulls you into Josie’s world with an extremely well crafted, intricate plot which has you holding your breath and urging Josie on. WOW! Forster has an eye for detail and a flare for making those “truth is stranger than fiction” plots leap off the pages. Kudos!
