Publisher's Summary

Kendall Deaton pulls herself and her baby out of a wrecked car, and a mixture of courage and fear gets her to the top of a ravine, where she flags down help. But she doesn't dare reveal her true identity to the authorities. Instead, she plans her immediate escape. Her perilous flight begins.
The best public defender in Prosper, South Carolina, Kendall had stumbled upon the town's chilling secret - and her marriage to one of the town's most powerful men has become a living hell. Now Kendall is a terrified mother trying to save her child's life...a reluctant witness who knows too much about an insidious evil...and a woman surrounded by forces that will stop at nothing to protect what is "theirs".

Critic Reviews

"This page-turner is a must on any summer beach reading list and a testament to Brown's gifts as a talented storyteller." ( Today)
"The push-pull generated by John's memory loss and Kendall's terror sparks a sexual tension that is deftly and vividly consummated, and secrets keep popping out until the last page. Brown's forte is glitch-free, all-over-the-map plotting, and her take on white-trashy behavior pushes just the right buttons." ( Publishers Weekly)

Kept Me Listening

This was an interesting story. I found that some parts of the story were predicable, but others were shocking (a little to much blood and guts for me). And, Ms. Brown does not describe a scene sparingly!

The story starts slow but strong and builds. Lots of backstories which held my interest fairly well. Nearly three quarters into the story, the action really get started and the story suddenly makes a sharp left turn and went in a direction that I did not expect. Unexpected twists and turns that elevated the story above predictability for me.

The voice the narrator used for the main character sounded very immature. The voice did not match the character's ability to get herself and her baby out of a fatal car crash, escape from a hospital with her baby, and run from the FBI and everybody else for days and days!

While the narration was not that good, it wasn't bad enough to make me quit listening. The story could benefit with a stronger narrator, possibly a female with a deeper voice.

The Witness

This is a must read. I love how Sandra Brown brings the characters together. You know there must be a connection and eventually there is. Her stories are so interesting and suspenseful. It's always a pleasure.
