Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Brown's latest thriller, in which an idealistic public defender discovers a terrible secret about her new husband, spent 11 weeks on PW's bestseller list. (July)
Library Journal
Brown's 16 appearances on the New York Times Best Sellers list gives instant appeal to this forthcoming tale of a young woman who testifies against a pair of white supremacists-who just happen to be her ex-husband and father-in-law. A Literary Guild and Doubleday Book Club main selection.
Mary Frances Wilkens
Kendall Deaton wants to be the best public defender the town of Prosper, South Carolina, has ever seen. She figures her dream is in the bag; she is married to the handsome newspaper editor, her father-in-law is a well-respected and popular man in the community, and the downtrodden of Prosper need a devoted advocate. What Kendall doesn't expect, though, is a town so entrenched in bigotry and "perfection" that she soon becomes the enemy, even to her new family. The book opens as Kendall pulls herself from the wreckage of a serious car accident. In the hospital, Kendall is careful not to disclose the true past of the seriously injured male driver; she tells the hospital personnel that he's her husband, and even though he's suffering from amnesia, he knows it is not true. Brown unfolds the story by alternating between the present and the past, keeping the reader guessing what's what all along. Though not an elegant writer, this prolific author writes a true page-turner that is recommended for fans of graphic crime fiction.
From the Publisher
"This page-turner is a must on any summer beach reading list and a testament to Brown's gifts as a talented storyteller."
-USA Today"

Through a mosaic of tantalizing clues, premonitions, and withheld identities, Brown has created another page-turner to ensure her phenomenal popularity...Secrets keep popping out until the last page. Brown's forte is glitch-free, all-over-the-map plotting."
-Publishers Weekly (starred review)

I love Sandra Brown books just so tired of Barnes and Noble being so deceptive and hyping these books as a new release beginning to appear that B and N is hoping we will reourcgase something published decades ago All they need to do is add a statement that its first time published as an ebook thats what KINDLE does

This book really sucked me in. Coudln't put it down. A warning to people that don't like going back and forth in the time sequence. I usually don't like that but it was esential to the story Brown wanted to tell. This would have been 5 stars by me but Brown didn't provide enough of an ending for me. I was looking for an epilogue or something.

Enjoyed this thriller by Sandra Brown as I do most of her books. This was unusual plot, but kept you on the edge of your seat.

They need to tell you that it is an older book. Now ive bought it twice. I think I should get a store credit or something. Again, why preorder? Very disappointed Barnes and Noble!

This was the first sandra brown book i read, and it blew me away. After that i read a ton of her books and became a huge fan. This book has so many themes that I look for in a good read and just the right touch of romance. It instantly became one of my favorites...this and Slow Heat in Heaven! Read them both!

Product Details for this book says that the Publication Date is 6/25/2013.  So, I thought this was a new book by Sandra Brown.  I'm not sure what that date means, because I have read this book previously.  Very Frustrating. It is a good book though.

This was a first with Sandra Brown, but it won't be the last. What a great read for everyone. I just kept at this book until it was finished...just couldn't put it down. Even though I figured out what the ending would be, it was fantastic reading right to the end. Highly recommended to anyone.

The story is very instense from beginning to end. It'll keep you on the edge of your seat. The romance is just as instense as the plot. I really enjoyed this book so much so that I had to listen to the audio cassette.

Good story, but I thought it was a new release.  This happens a lot when buying Nook books.

I loved this book, Although some of the content was so sad to me I couldnt beleive the brutalness of Gibb and Matt. And some of the scenes were just hard to think about. But it was a great suspense and really hooked me in from the start. On a negative side I found it hard to think that someone as kind as Kendall would have such a trashy best friend who would sleep with two strangers she had never even met and spill her secret location to. So some things were just so unrealistic but on the whole a great fast read

Great suspense, with the plot building up slowly to immerse you into the characters and mistery. It sucks you in. I agree with other reviewers that the end was cut too short and the book would have benefited from an epilogue. That's why I gave it 4 stars instead of 5. Also, it is true that this is a rerelease. The book is many years old. You can pick this up here and there in the story (for example, when the male character, who is 42, tells us that he was born in 1952). It did not bother me, but I can understand why some reviewers were thrown off. Regardless, it is a terrific thriller with a good dose of romance, just the way I like it.

Written in and interesting manner to keep you guessing. A little gruesome at times, but the overall story line is a good one.

Sandra Brown displays remarkable talent in her new book The Witness. The story goes back and forth in time, but done in a way that is easy to follow. The book has a very unique plot that really draws you in with each and every page.
