LoveReading Expert Review of Witness

One of our Great Reads you may have missed in 2011.

Her book on euthanasia, The Kindest Thing, was terrific. This one is on gang culture and how a community deals with murder witnessed by four unconnected people (almost). It is unputdownable, light to read but weighty in subject matter. I think she is very good.

Witness Synopsis

Four bystanders in the wrong place at the wrong time. Witnesses to the shocking shooting of a teenage boy. A moment that changes their lives forever. Fiona, a midwife, is plagued by panic attacks and unable to work. Has she the strength to testify? Mike, a delivery driver and family man, faces an impossible decision when his frightened wife forces him to choose - us or the court case. Cheryl, a single-mother, doesn't want her child to grow up in the same climate of fear. Dare she speak out and risk her own life? Zak, a homeless man, offers to talk in exchange for witness protection and the chance of a new start. Ordinary people in an extraordinary situation. Will the witnesses stand firm or be prevented from giving evidence? How will they cope with the emotional trauma of reliving the murder under pitiless cross-examination?
