Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, teenage Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much and allowing a seductive Russian to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. Twelve years later, the designer of sophisticated security systems now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the edge of a small Ozarks town--a loner who says little and reveals nothing. Local police chief Brooks Gleason is intrigued by Abigail on both a personal and professional level --and consequently is about to walk into the sights of powerful and dangerous men, while Abigail is at risk of losing the security and self-control on which she's built her life

This entry from Nora Roberts had an interesting premise, but ended up not having much in the way of suspense.

One of my favorite Nora Roberts books. There is humor, suspense, a dog, love and strong family love. Also, an intelligent plot.

I really enjoyed this book! Similar to other suspense/romance novels by Nora Roberts, but I really enjoy her smart (super smart in this case) heroines. This one speaks Russian and weaves intricate revenge plans even while she fears for her life. Fewer points of view than her older "Three Fates" but with just as likable characters.

This was a great story. Always with a happy ending. I didn't like the use of "f" word, etc. Is there a need for this?

Very good. Best book by Nora Roberts I've read yet.

I really enjoyed this novel. I read it in less than a week. It was emotional, fresh, and believable. I didn't want it to end. I wanted to know and see more of Abigail aka Liz or Elizabeth. Great read. Highly recommend it!

I loved the book, It took me 2 days to read it but I couldn't stop. It's very well written.

What a book!!! Two days it took me to read this and I wanted more. Nora Roberts can tell a story. The Witness was one of the best books I've read all year and maybe last.

I loved this book. I devoured it in 1 day and then passed it on to my mom. Favourite Nora Roberts by far.
