Today is my stop on the blog tour for The Witness.
Landscape artist Josie MacDonald is coming to the end of her stay in Scotland. Whilst out on a painting trip early one morning she witnesses a horrific murder.
Mr Mac, the deranged killer, is aware that she has seen him at work and sets out to kill her but Josie manages to escape by plunging desperately into the North Sea.
Mr Mac, convinced that she has perished, discovers a few days later that she has survived and sets out to track her down. He follows her to London where he subjects her to terrible psychological torment as one by one her friends are drawn into the nightmare.
Josie returns to Scotland in order to discover the truth where her worst fears are realised. With time running out and a killer on the loose she must survive long enough to bring their horrifying ordeal to an end.
Whoa! This is one heck of a psychological thriller that has you questioning what you would do in Josie’s position. I love the cat and mouse chase, and the suspense had me on the edge of my seat.
I couldn’t put The Witness down and as much as I wanted to get to the end, I didn’t want it to end. I love when a book keeps you so invested that you are disappointed when the end comes and you can’t read it anymore.
Definitely going on my list of favorites for the year. I highly recommend checking The Witness out!
