Overview

“Marvelously plotted.” —Philadelphia Inquirer

After the murder of his high school sweetheart left him shattered, Tony Lord vowed never to return to his Ohio hometown of Lake City. Twenty-eight years later, Tony is a successful California criminal lawyer with a beautiful celebrity wife. He’s living the good life…until long-buried memories come crashing down when he hears from an old friend, who needs his help.

“Enthralling.” —Los Angeles Times Book Review

Sam Robb is a track coach at Lake City High. He swears he is not responsible for the death of one of his female team members…even though forensic evidence reveals that he’s the father of her unborn child.

“Chilling.” —The Washington Post Book World

Back when they were teenagers, Sam stood by Tony when he was a suspect in his young girlfriend’s murder—and Tony desperately wants to do the same for him today. In doing so, Tony will have to revisit his troubled past and probe the darkest secrets of small-town life to get to the truth. And what he will find is more shocking than he ever could have imagined….

I've been enjoying Richard North Patterson's books and recently started reading some of his oldies. Just finished Silent Witness and had to take a moment to write a review about this terrific book. I've been an avid reader for years and this book was by far the best book I have ever read. Buy a copy while it's still available ... you won't regret it.

i've read a total of three books by richard north patterson. his work is truely amazing. i admire his skills - an author was definitely his calling. Patterson is hands down the best author to me. i can read his books, and he never loses his touch. as with other autors, the one book you read's great, then as you read others by the same author, the suspense is down, you don't even want to finish reading it. i love mr.pattersons novels.

This is the most wonderful book I've read, so far. I just couldn't put this book down, it's full of suspenses and mistery. When you think you know who the killer is the evidence points to someone else. This is a great book. You will love it!
