Resolved hostilityAuthor American. 14 years in advertising before writing her first book now up to 14 by my count, 7 in the "Witness" series. Precis Maladjusted 16-year-old Hannah is charged with the murder of her step-grandfather, the chief justice of the California Supreme court no less. Her Mom turns to old college roomie, beach volleyball team-mate, and one-time hot shot criminal attorney Josie. (Yes, I said beach volleyball player, complete with "smokin' bod"). Suffice to say the dead judge is not a bastion of rectitude he appears. Josie risks life, firmly toned limb, and professional reputation to air the dirty laundry. Writing Tries too hard. Ms Forster should rein in the flowery descriptions and prune the metaphor count. Predictable plot, but good pace. Cliched characters. Bottom line I got the book for free from Mr Bezos. It provided a satisfactory diversion for a few hours, but I won't be shelling out sequels..Score: 3/5

Warning - wrong bookDownloaded this book at the weekend however it was not the first book in the series it was the last. ITunes please make that clearer. I got part way through before I realised as it became clear there was a lot of characterisation missing and backing storylines that weren't explained. It was still an enjoyable read but probably would have been a lot better if I'd read the previous 6 books in the series. UPDATE: The day after placing my review the book was updated so I now have the first. Thank you for such a quick fix..Score: 1/5

DisappointedI've read close to 20 books over the last 6 months, I'm sorry to say this is the worst one !! I expected Josie to be amazing in court as she is known to get the most guiltiest of people off.... This never happened, half way through the book I couldn't bring myself to continue reading. None of the characters were realistic !!.Score: 1/5

Compelling and un-putdownable!A puzzle box of a story that reaches out, grabs you by the hair and drags you deeper and deeper into the complex plot. A real page turner, that keeps you guessing..Score: 5/5

Odd updateI started reading this book a while ago and then stopped for a bit. There was an update I downloaded and then started reading again. I have been on/off reading again recently but a recent update has changed the book entirely. It seems I was reading the first book in the series and then the first update turned it into the last book in the series. I read a big chunk more and now the recent update has switched it back to the first book again. Odd. Frustrating so I now have to start again!.Score: 1/5
