It was 12 years ago that a young woman named Elizabeth foolishly allowed a seductive man with a Russian accent to lure her away from the nightclub where she’d been drinking in defiance of her controlling mother. The events that followed changed her life forever.
Now, a reclusive woman known as Abigail Lowery lives in a small town in the Ozarks, where she works as a freelance designer of sophisticated security systems. Her personal security involves a fierce dog and an assortment of firearms…fully loaded. Needless to say, Abigail keeps to herself, a situation police chief Brooks Gleason finds intriguing as he wonders what makes this infuriatingly attractive woman tick. Her logical mind, her secretive nature, her unromantic viewpoints only add to her allure. But Brooks’ fascination is frustrated by Abigail’s obvious need for protection. What is the story that she’s gone to such pains to hide?
The Witness has all the ingredients for a top-notch thriller—a quirky, unforgettable heroine, a rugged hero and a riveting plotline. But, as always, #1 bestselling author Nora Roberts kicks it up more than a few notches for a pulse-pounding page-turner impossible to put down…or forget.

Although I've not quite finished the book, it is very good. I had just finished another Nora Roberts book and as always, this one does not dissappoint. Hard to put down and it grabs you one Page 1.
I enjoyed this book so much that I read it in one setting...
I was up all night reading this book. It grabbed me to the point that I could NOT put it down!!!!
The book was great. The female character wasn't the "normal" Roberts heroine,but that made it more interesting reading. Put yourself in her place - trust can be an issue in a normal situation let alone this one. Kudos, Nora Roberts, you've done it again.
I love all Nora Roberts books, and though the begining of this book was really good, it was very hard for me to connect to the female character throughout the book. One of my favorite things about Nora Roberts' books are her strong female characters that put up with no bull, but are still very soft and relatable. This character though had that robotic thought process and way of speaking that I couldn't get past. The good thing about this book was that while I couldn't connect with the main character it did have a good story line and wasn't boring.
