From Barnes & NobleSiegel, an award-winning reporter whose true-crime novel, A Death in White Bear Lake, was nominated for an Edgar, has chosen to make his fiction debut with an intriguing and thought-provoking legal thriller. His hero, Greg Monarch, is a lawyer in a small California town who is tapped to defend his former partner, Ira Sullivan, on a charge of murder. Making his job almost impossible is the title character, Sandy Poison, a stunning, utterly convincing pathological liar who is providing an unscrupulous district attorney with all the "evidence" he needs to put Sullivan away. Witness is a neatly constructed, suspenseful courtroom drama that neatly casts light on the difference between jurisprudence and justice.
