First novel by a new author. Book is discounted $7 and is set to be released soon.
The Witness breaks new ground by showing the enduring effects trauma can have on a life and the process victims must undergo to heal, while still being an entertaining and compelling read, and covers the steps toward healing from violence.
No one expected Jenny to survive the physical and emotional trauma she experienced--not the doctors, not the London serial killer who chose her for his seventh victim, not the Scotland Yard detective who desperately needed her to testify against her attacker. Jenny is kidnapped and is a victim of violence. The threat to her life is present both before and after her attacker is convicted and continues to the end of the book. Suspense also plays a role in whether she will have recovered sufficiently from her trauma to testify against her attacker and later to participate in a romantic relationship with the Scotland Yard detective who handled her case.
