Présentation de l'éditeur

Grace McCreary swears she tried to stop her sister-in-law from jumping from her penthouse balcony but the police have a different take on the situation. They arrest Grace for murder which puts her brother, Senatorial candidate Matthew McCreary, in a spotlight he doesn't relish. Nor is he thrilled when Grace seeks out his former lover, Josie Baylor-Bates, to act as her defense attorney. Josie, who has sworn off rich clients, agrees to defend Grace but even she isn't sure why. She swears she believes in the woman innocence but in her heart she wants to prove that Matthew made a mistake letting her go.

Stepping back into the world of privilege and power, forced to face her feelings for a man she once loved, Josie is determined to win this case - even if she looses everything she holds dear.

"Living in Los Angeles makes one aware that the rich have a leg up in our legal system. People of privilege have a lot to protect and people they love can be at the end of the list." Rebecca Forster

Definitely worth reading to keep the continuity of the underlying story of Josie and Archer but personally I thought that the story was a bit weak and the ending a bit feeble. Having said that, it hasn't put me off the series at all.

HASH(0x89b58564) étoiles sur 5 Even better than the first two 18 février 2006
Par Brad - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
Just finished this latest addition to the Witness series and I highly recommend it. It is well written, captivating, and the plot has many twists. I have read all three in the series and this is even better than the first two books (which were outstanding).

I think the characters are well-developed, especially for a series, and they all have flaws, which is a good thing in a novel. The subplots are good and one in particular (I won't spoil things) is very well developed and creates its own suspense.

Josie Bates is one of the most likeable characters I have read and the author makes you sympathetic to her predicaments.

As a lawyer, I can say that the court scenes are vivid and realistic, which isn't always the case in this genre. From a writer's perspective, the scenes and dialogue are nicely constructed. This author knows how to write. If you want a fun and entertaining read, buy this book.

HASH(0x8a6a67b0) étoiles sur 5 Oh what a tangled web her clients do weave 8 février 2006
Par Daniel Jolley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I don't put a lot of legal thrillers on my personal reading list, but you'll never find me passing up a Rebecca Forster novel. The mystery and suspense of each Forster whatwhywho-dunnit will keep you flipping the pages relentlessly, but it is the heart and realism of her complex, incredibly human characters (flaws and all) that make Forster such a special writer. You won't find a missive of dry, boring legal fiction here, as Forster's heroine, Josie Baylor-Bates, seems to find herself in one extremely personal case after another. Josie's a remarkable woman - tall, athletic, unyielding, and yet quite vulnerable. In Hostile Witness, she made the case of a troubled young girl (the daughter of an old college friend) accused of murder a personal one - and ended up becoming the legal guardian of the accused. In Silent Witness, she defended the man she loves from a charge of murdering his own step-son, learning many unsettling things about him in the process. You would think that's about as personal as a case can get. You'd be wrong, as Privileged Witness reunites her with her first love, Matthew McCreary, a rising politician whose sister (a sister he had always told Josie was dead) stands accused of murdering Matthew's wife. Such an unwelcome blast from the past is never easy on a person, and that is especially true of this case's effects upon Josie. Privileged Witness explores Josie's character to previously unplumbed depths, making it - in my opinion - the "deepest" of the first three Josie Baylor-Bates novels. I didn't like everything I saw Josie do in this story, yet I could understand her motivations. A lot of authors would just sit back and give such a successful character a free ride, a veritable hero's parade to a brave finish. Forster, to her credit, doesn't sit on her laurels, and the personal risks she takes with her heroine make for a truly absorbing read.

If you've read the author's last two novels, you'll know that Josie moved to Hermosa Beach some time back in order to pursue a quiet life as a lawyer, having given up high-profile (and high-income) criminal defense cases after a client she got acquitted went out and murdered someone else. Despite the best of intentions, though, she keeps finding herself in the spotlight of cases such as this one, which - among other things - will help determine the next Senator from California. As usual, Josie doesn't know what's she's getting into at first. When Grace McCreary comes to ask her for help, she is led to believe that the cops are suspicious of Matthew's possible involvement in his wife's death. It's rather a surprise to her when Grace is arrested for murder. Things only go downhill from there, as Josie is constantly blindsided by truths her client's family neglected to mention to her, the political maneuvering going on behind the scenes to save McCreary's crumbling senatorial campaign from ruin, a whole snake pit of McCreary family secrets, and her dangerous tendency to sometimes think with her heart rather than her head in this case.

Josie was not the right lawyer to defend Grace McCreary; her latent feelings for her former lover color some of her decisions and actions - and she's not the only one who stands to get hurt as events unfold. There's also a mad, cowardly, sore loser of a wife-beater out there threatening revenge against his ex-wife and her lawyer, which puts Josie as well as those closest to her in danger. Forster works this secondary storyline into the overall novel extremely well, I must say. Only the most remarkable of women could hold up under all the strain Josie faces from all directions over the course of this novel. There are really just a lot of things going on all at once here, and the drama of so many fateful characters really takes precedence over the legal aspects of the crime itself. You won't find a shocking courtroom climax at the end of this story, as it's far too tragic to end in such a commonplace manner. Forster is really expanding the boundaries of her fiction with this effort, and the result is her most memorable novel to date.

HASH(0x89b43b70) étoiles sur 5 Kindle version has multiple (think MEGA) typos! 11 mars 2010

I haven't yet finished the first book in The Witness series (Privileged Witness - Kindle format) so I can't comment yet on the story itself. I will say that so far I'm enjoying the story line.
At this point, I'm giving it a 3 based on how poorly the Kindle version is written (assuming that the original printed book wasn't this poorly edited, of course!). But, I guess for $1.99, I shouldn't expect much???
Being a former Web site content editor, I cringe when I see some of the goofs I've seen in this version of the book. The mistakes take away the enjoyment of the story for me. I had barely gotten into 20% of the Kindle version of the book when I decided that I would have to write a review -- not for the author's writing (again -- I hope editors didn't allow these errors to go to print!) but for all the typos that were taking away from the pleasure of reading. I'm further along in the story, now, and it's only getting worse.
Examples:
"It would be a different when the coroner's people had their way with her." (This is at 1%; I assume the word "story" was left out of this sentence.)
"Her brain might fall out and that would be a sad, indeed." (Same page as above; assume the word "thing" was left out.)
As I said, it just gets worse as it goes on. Almost each page has something similar to the above examples.
Tell you what, Amazon: I'm currently out of a job, so if you need someone to transcribe books into the Kindle format, hey -- I'm available!

First let me say to go after the star rating of a book because of editing, please. Rate the book, question the editing. Rebecca Forster's Witness Series is on my favoritse list, so far three books read and each one has gotten better. PRIVILEGED WITNESS is an excellent story, keeps you guessing and Josie Baylor-Bates is a great character in the legal/courtroom gendre. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this book and the entire series. On to book four.
