He saw what you did. He knows who you are…

From the New York Times bestselling author of Pieces of Her and The Silent Wife, an electrifying standalone thriller.


Leigh Collier has worked hard to build what looks like a normal life. She’s an up-and-coming defense attorney at a prestigious law firm in Atlanta, would do anything for her sixteen-year-old daughter Maddy, and is managing to successfully coparent through a pandemic after an amicable separation from her husband Walter.


But Leigh’s ordinary life masks a childhood no one should have to endure … a childhood tarnished by secrets, broken by betrayal, and ultimately destroyed by a brutal act of violence.


On a Sunday night at her daughter’s school play, she gets a call from one of the firm's partners who wants Leigh to come on board to defend a wealthy man accused of multiple counts of rape. Though wary of the case, it becomes apparent she doesn't have much choice if she wants to keep her job. They're scheduled to go to trial in one week. When she meets the accused face-to-face, she realizes that it’s no coincidence that he’s specifically asked for her to represent him. She knows him. And he knows her. More to the point, he may know what happened over twenty years ago, and why Leigh has spent two decades avoiding her past.  


Suddenly she has a lot more to lose than this case. The only person who can help is her younger, estranged sister Callie—the last person Leigh would ever want to drag into this after all they’ve been through. But with the life-shattering truth in danger of being revealed, she has no choice...

“A high-stakes thriller . . . Her heroines are believable, flawed and courageous.” –OYINKAN BRAITHWAITE

False Witness (Karin Slaughter) Book Reviews

False WitnessI read this book over a two day period and kept hoping it would resolve happily,but when I realized it would not I thought about not reading the rest of the book. But I kept reading, and sure enough it got even more sad. But the writing style was superb and I realized I had to read it until the end. I never cry when I read, but this book brought me to my knees. There were many themes and subplots, but the overall core of the book was the overwhelming love of the sisters, Leigh and Callie. I hesitate to say this because of the terrible suffering and evil that exists in this world, but it was a truly beautiful book. So I am glad I kept reading and recommend this book..Score: 5/5

Loved itGreat read.Score: 5/5

DisappointmentCardboard, unlikeable characters. Didn’t care what happened to any of them. Interesting storyline..Score: 1/5

DisappointingIf this had been first of Slaughter’s books I’d read, I’d never read another. Not one likable character. I need at least one to root for. Very repetitive. I started skimming many pages without losing track of what was going on. And I carried through to the bitter end. But glad to see the end. I do not recommend..Score: 1/5

False WitnessNot as good as her others. As far as incorporating the pandemic into the story,it has no bearing on the story at all and could have easily been left out..Score: 3/5

COMPLETELY UNPUTDOWNABLE!FALSE WITNESS is a gripping, fast-paced, highly enjoyable read. Callie and Leigh are fresh, fully formed characters that you cannot help but feel for. The very dark moments are made easier with doses of laugh-out loud humor. And it made me cry, twice. I didn’t know a thriller could do that! Slaughter truly gets better with every book and FALSE WITNESS is completely unputdownable. Fan for life..Score: 5/5
