Inhaltsangabe

Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever.

Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems. Her own security is supplemented by a fierce dog and an assortment of firearms. She keeps to herself, saying little, revealing nothing. Unfortunately, that seems to be the quickest way to get attention in a tiny southern town.

The mystery of Abigail Lowery intrigues local police chief Brooks Gleason, on both a personal and a professional level. Her sharp, logical mind, her secretive nature, her unromantic viewpoints leave him fascinated but frustrated. He suspects that Abigail needs protection from something, even if he doesn’t know what - and that her elaborate defenses hide a story that must be revealed.

Accustomed to two-bit troublemakers, Gleason is about to walk into the sights of very powerful and dangerous men. And Abigail Lowery, who has built a life based on security and self-control, is at risk of losing both.

Tragic exiting brilliant

You can feel for the girl the first minute you start hearing this book and you can feel the pain, the loss and the fear of the grown woman. A great book!

Brilliant witness

A wonderful story, the creation of a genius as protagonist fighting the heartless monster mother, falling or almost falling into the hands of the brutal Russian Mafia , hiding and protecting herself so that no bribes at all can get to her. Village life at its best , belief in the good and honest policeman regained! A hell of a good laugh in between!
The weird words of Liz, plus the poetic language the author uses make every smalltalk a must read! I'm getting addicted to Robertson fiction!!!!

The Witness

Einfach schoen, spannend, hoerenswert. Die Sprecherin Julia Whelan spricht deutlich, wenn auch mit ein wenig amerikanischem Akzent, habe sie trotzdem gut verstanden.

Loved the story and the reader

Captivating from the start, a great thriller, which is both romantic and funny. Also I think my favourite reader, giving soul to all characters.

Super tolles Audiobook. Meiner Meinung nach ist die Sprecherin sehr gut zu verstehen, spricht klar und nicht zu schnell. Werde mir auf jeden Fall noch weitere Audiobooks dieser Autorin kaufen.
