Présentation de l'éditeur

Police Chief Luke Granger's witness to a murder, Amy Griffin, has been on the run for years. Her family thinks she was murdered eight years ago, but Amy chose to accept a life in the shadows in order to protect her sisters' lives. Now unveiled secrets about their father have thrust the sisters into the public spotlight. The man who wants Amy dead now sees her sisters as the way to locate her. Luke and two of his homicide detectives are determined to stand in the way. They are each falling in love with a different sister, and it's become a personal mission to keep them safe. But chances are that at least one of them will fail, and facing the future will take a faith deeper than any of them currently knows.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent choice for romantic suspense fans 8 février 2006
Par Christian Book Previews - Publié sur
For eight years, Amanda Griffin has been on the run from Richard Wise. She holds the access to twenty million dollars of ill-gotten funds, and a list of his contacts that she's gradually turning over to the police. One mistake could snuff out her life. Her family already thinks she's dead.

Trouble arrives when her sisters receive a huge inheritance from the father they never knew. Afraid that Wise will take revenge on Marie and Tracey, Amanda moves back to town to keep an eye on them -- and let them know she's still alive, for now.

Police Chief Luke Granger met Amanda three years ago, and he hasn't forgotten her. One of his homicide detectives is dating Tracey; another is just getting to know Marie. Luke, Marsh, and Connor will do everything in their power to keep the three Griffin women safe. But it may not be enough.

Dee Henderson departs from her usual pattern by focusing on three couples, making her protagonists older, and having the series more integrated; in fact, many of the story threads aren't finished in this book. But the book has her signature blend of mystery and suspense. The characters are fully drawn, but Henderson's point-of-view choices prevent readers from connecting as deeply as those in her previous novels. Amanda and Tracey are never the viewpoint characters, and I think the book suffers because of it, especially with Amanda. Hopefully future books will allow readers to get to know her better. In all, The Witness is an excellent choice for romantic suspense fans. -- Katie Hart, Christian Book

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wonderful! 27 janvier 2006

I wasn't sure if anything could live up to Dee Henderson's O'Malley series, but this was just as wonderful! The characters are so vivid, the suspense killing and a great finale. I just hope this is the first of a new series! I think a great story could be told around Daniel and Caroline! A definite read, just make sure you have tissues handy near the end!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Anticipated Masterpiece 26 janvier 2006
Par Hannah Lane - Publié sur
I put it down a few hours ago. I was amazed. Dee Henderson's long-awaited book, The Witness was fabulous!! Dee has once again introduced loveable characters that I want to know more of. Luke and Amy were interesting. But, I also enjoyed the fact that there were more than one romancing couple in the book, there were three! You must read this one. It is one of her finest. Bravo

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A must read! 11 mars 2006
Par Armchair Interviews - Publié sur
Dee Henderson is on my short list of authors whose new books move right to the top of my "to-be-read" stack. After an uneven outing in True Courage, I picked up The Witness with a mixture of fear and anticipation. But Henderson didn't disappoint. She's back to a strongly plotted blend of page-turning suspense and ahhh-inducing romance.

Amanda Griffin holds the secret books and records that are putting a crime boss behind bars. Presumed dead, Amanda is actually on the run to keep her sisters out of danger, while feeding information to the authorities. In hiding, Amanda witness a crime and turns to Brentwood Police Deputy Chief Luke Granger who hopes to convince her to stop running. Three years later, circumstances force her to return to Brentwood--and to tell her sisters she's still alive.

As Luke works to keep Amanda and her sisters safe, his feelings for Mandy grow--as do hers. And so do her sisters, for two of Brentwood's finest detectives. The body count rises as both the crime boss and an unknown enemy target Amanda and her family. Henderson is at her best keeping the story moving with a minimum of description.

That is probably harshest criticism I could make: the city of Brentwood never came alive for me. It could have been any midwest city. Henderson's female characters are fully drawn. Each sister is her own unique person. The men however...Chief Luke Granger, Lieutenants Conner Black and Caleb Marsh are all interchangeable. The most diverse male character is the sisters' cousin, Daniel Benton, a supporting player in The Witness. But one, I have a feeling, we haven't seen the last of. At least I hope not.

And I hope Henderson is hard at work on the next of what could be another wonderful series, comparable to her O'Malley Chronicles. The Witness is a great start. I'd like to spend time with Daniel Benton and Caroline St. James and Marie Griffin and Connor Black. That would keep Henderson on the top of my short list.

Armchair Interviews says: If you like strong plots with great suspense...and a little romance thrown in, The Witness is a must-read.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Superficial romance and simple suspense 5 mai 2006
Par Phil Wade - Publié sur
Summary: A woman, who is running for her life, attempts to keep her trouble away from her family.

This romantic suspense novel is Henderson's 14th work. Her next one, "Before I Wake," will be released in October, which I suppose gives her enough time to write light, movement-focused stories like "The Witness." For light, clean entertainment meant to be consumed in a couple nights, you may want to look into it.

For my taste, I expected more than superficial romance and more complicated suspense. The story jumps up for a good start, but it slows to a steady walk until the end, even for what should have been the suspenseful parts. Most of book is spent on dialogue like this:

"I've still got some work to do to make sure there are safe secondary locations nearby if needed and arrangements made to have dogs on the grounds, but that won't take much beyond your money to solve."

"Spend it, as much as you need."

"I will. I'll pick up the food from the caterers at four and have it set up by, say, six. Nothing fancy, just stuff that can keep hot easily . . ."

This comes from characters who, I hate to say it, sound like different voices for the same person. I suppose that superficially many of us look alike, so in print, we can sound alike too. But when different people are in difficult or dangerous situations, don't they reveal how differently they think and express themselves, even in light conversations? Murder is a difficult situation, I'd think.
