What do you do when you're forced to be a silent witness? Made to witness horrible crimes through fear and control?
Solomon is sinister, creepy man controlling Rebecca in the worst possible way. The more I read about him, the more I detested him! I desperately wanted Rebecca to go to the police and for Solomon to get his comeuppance. But that would not make for a good psychological thriller!
Witness is a classic cat and mouse, mess with the protagonist's head. You wouldn't believe this chilling ...more
Thank you to Netgalley, Thomas & Mercer, & Caroline Mitchell for my ARC in exchange for a fair and honest review*
Would you be frozen with fear whenever you received a text? Probably not, but then you're not Rebecca and it's not Solomon texting you.

This is an extremely nerve wracking, chilling, tense, psychological thriller that will leave most readers turning the pages very quickly to find out what happens next. Check your locks before settling down to read this and put your life on hold because you won't be able to put this book down.
Now that my nerves have settled down a bit I can write my thoughts about the book.

I personally found this great story tense, exciting, sad, unforving and very very addictive.
Rebecca had finally escaped from Solomon and was convicted of abuse and jailed.
But even though the conviction of Solomon, it meant that Rebecca had to gain a new start in life, a new existence. Her life settled with a husband and her child.
But she was looking over her shoulder once Solomons release from prison.
Would she ever be free?
Her husband didn't know much about her past.
I loved how the author brough ...more
Another excellent novel by author Caroline Mitchell and I feel a little mean not giving it the top rating of 5 stars. I did really enjoy this book and it certainly had me gripped right from the very beginning and this author is quickly proving to be one of my very favourite writers.
Ten years after testifying against her abusive boyfriend Solomon, Rebecca tries to rebuild her life and finally put her past behind her. But when she receives a phone call from a phone left in her bedroom she quickly ...more
Having read three crime novels by this author in the past, I was quite intrigued by Witness, as it was described as a thriller rather than crime. I’m not a huge fan of police procedural crime novels, so really wanted to see what I thought of this thriller. Although I did actually enjoy all of the Detective Jennifer Knight series, and the fascinating character of Frank in the first book, Don’t Turn Around, who still stays with me, I have to say that Witness is now my favourite book by this author ...more
