Publisher's Summary

Lena Gamble is an LAPD cop held in disgrace by department higher-ups for the explosive way her last case played out, though she's still hailed as a hero by her colleagues for catching the killer. For her punishment, she hasn't handled a real murder investigation in eight months. When the chief finally tosses her a case, she's thrilled until she gets a look at the scene and realizes he's probably setting her up to be exiled once and for all: the victim is unidentified, and there are no witnesses, and no leads. Just the body, chopped into pieces and dropped in a Dumpster - gruesome enough to ensure that, once again, the media will be following Lena's every move.

Not very believable

This book's plot is not only boring but not believable. Not really worth the time or money; as a fan of Michael Connelly genre, this is NOT comparable.

Refreshing twist but a low energy story

Okay, I can recommend this as an entirely forgettable, but useful listen if you need something to distract your mind while tread-milling. Ellis is a commercial writer. He knows all about pace, narrative, story arcing... Yep, he's got all that stuff in his tool kit. But I really didn't much care about Lena Gamble's odd struggles with her superiors. Instead, I grumbled about another lazy writer who found contention in the old chestnut of inter office friction. But.. but... plot twisties overcame that objection and hid some of the endings predictability. Well, sorta....

Need a safe police procedural to fill a commute? The Lost Witness will do that, especially since Deanna Hurst SIZZLES as a narrator. She can do believable men's voices! I'll look for her name from now on.
