Book Description

In the dead of night, Josie Bates is ripped from sleep by the sounds of an epic storm raging over Hermosa Beach and a man beating on her door begging her to help Billy Zuni who is drowning in the raging sea. She arrives at the shore just in time to see the teenager pulled from the water, battered and near death. Ready to kill Billy’s selfish, neglectful mother, Josie rushes to the Zuni house only to find someone has beaten her to it. Two men lie dead downstairs and Billy’s mother clings to life on the floor above. Spurred on by Hannah’s fear that Billy will be framed for the murders, Josie takes up his defense. But Billy is evasive, physical evidence points to his guilt, and the county counsel wants him committed to the state. With the clock ticking, Archer and Josie set out to find the mysterious man who can vouch for Billy’s whereabouts at the time of the murders. What they find instead is a web of intrigue and deceit that stretches half way around the world and an eyewitness who is blinded by a justice Josie cannot understand.

About the Author

She marketed a world-class spa when it was still called a gym, did business in China before there were western toilettes at the Great Wall and mucked around with the sheep to find out exactly how her client’s fine wool clothing was manufactured. Then Rebecca wrote her first book and found her passion. Now, over twenty-five books later, she is a USA Today and Amazon best selling author and writes full time, penning thrillers that explore the emotional impact of the justice system. She earned her B.A. at Loyola, Chicago and her MBA at Loyola, Los Angeles. Rebecca has taught the Business of Creativity at University of California Long Beach Writers Certificate Program, UCLA and UC Irvine extension. Married to a Los Angeles Superior Court judge, she is the mother of two grown sons and spends her free time traveling, sewing, and playing tennis.

More About the Author

I marketed a world class spa when it was still called a gym and did business in China before there were western toilettes at the Great Wall. Then I wrote a book on a crazy dare and found my passion.

Now, I am a USA Today best selling author with more than 25 books under my belt. I love everything about the law and my Witness Series, introduces readers to a beach town in Southern California and Josie Bates, a beach rat, volleyball playing attorney and her ward, Hannah Sheraton. I also like to stretch the thirller genre a bit. Before Her Eyes, for instance, has a tinge of fantasy along with the murder mystery and it's all wrapped up with a twist on the very last page.

I teach at UCLA Writers Program and work with The Young Writers Conference, a program that helps motivate middle school children to explore the power of words. I am particularly drawn to kids and writing because both my sons have always had a passion for it. Eric is a playwright and Alex is in film. I am long married to a Superior Court judge

When I'm not writing I'm traveling, on a tennis court, working a sewing machine or reading. Thank you so much for taking a look at my author page. You can find out more about me - and leave me a note - at www.rebeccaforster.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping page turner 9 Mar. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
For those in the UK who have yet to discover Rebecca Forster's novels, start with Hostile Witness (available for free on Amazon), and work forward from there. This is the 5th in the witness series, which revolves around the life and career of Attorney Josie Bates (not forgetting her family and friends, who play key roles).

Eyewitness focuses on the very different cultures in the US and Albania, and (without giving too much away) sheds some light on one of the characters. The author has clearly done some research of the latter country, and made me feel as if I were really there. We alternate between flashbacks (of the 60s forwards) and the present day, and eventually the two collide head on in a very clever ending.

This is as good as any of the witness books, and shows Rebecca is very much on form. In Josie, she has created a strong female lead, who certainly is not perfect, but clearly cares, does her best and is a very likeable character. Having read all 5 books, I have grown to love Josie, Archer, Hannah, Billy and the rest.

Other than the witness books, the author has written a number of other legal thrillers, and all of these stand against others I have read and loved of that genre.

Give these books a try, you won't regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great book from Rebecca Forster 14 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I think this is one of the harder books to get into from the witness series but it does start to cleverly unfold. I gave it 4 stars because I don't think it was as good as book 4 which was definitely the best one so far!! Saying that, it is still an interesting and exciting story that has unexpected revelations throughout and yet again incorporates the return of old characters, as well as a few new ones. If you have not read books 1-4 I would highly recommend these before this book!!
