Summary
Daughter of a controlling mother, Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking at a nightclub and allowing a strange man's seductive Russian accent lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever.

Twelve years later, the woman known as Abigail Lowery lives on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she designs sophisticated security  systems--and supplements her own security with a fierce dog and an assortment of firearms. She keeps to herself, saying little, revealing nothing. But Abigail's reserve only intrigues police chief Brooks Gleason. Her logical mind, her secretive nature, and her unromantic viewpoints leave him fascinated but frustrated. He suspects that Abigail needs protection from something--and that her elaborate defenses hide a story that must be revealed.

With a quirky, unforgettable heroine and a pulse-pounding plotline, Nora Roberts presents a riveting new read that cements her place as today's most reliably entertaining thriller
author--and will leave people hungering for more.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Elizabeth Fitch is tired of living her life by her mother's strict rules. So the minute her mother leaves for a medical conference, Elizabeth is out the door and headed to the mall. One new wardrobe, one new BFF, and two new fake IDs later, Liz finds herself at Chicago's hottest nightclub. But before the night is over, Liz will be a witness to murder, when Alex Gurevich, the nightclub owner, is eliminated by two of his business associates. Twelve years later, Liz, now living as Abigail Lowery, has built a new life for herself as a freelance computer-security programmer in Bickford, Arkansas. Abigail's first and only priority is staying one step ahead of the Russian Mob, who has never stopped trying to get rid of the one living witness to Gurevich's murder. The only problem is that Bickford's new chief of police, Brooks Gleason, simply refuses to let her live in peace, and nothing Abigail says or does seems to convince him that she doesn't need his help. When it comes to flawlessly fusing high-stakes suspense with red-hot romance, Roberts is unrivaled, and her latest addictively readable novel is guaranteed to jangle readers' nerves and keep them enthralled long past bedtime. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: The Witness is romance-legend Roberts' 200th published novel (her first was Irish Thoroughbred, 1981). Fifty-one of her books have held the number-one slot on the New York Times best-seller list, and it's a sure bet The Witness will be number 52.--Charles, John Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this powerful romantic suspense (Roberts's 200th novel, after Captivated), readers are introduced to a fascinating young woman trying to atone for a tragic act witnessed long ago. Though Elizabeth Fitch was a model daughter-a prodigy en route to med-school at 16-years-old-her dictatorial mother's "directives" cause Liz to rebel. After meeting some young members of the Russian mafia during the course of a wild night out, Liz witnesses a horrible murder, and is consequently placed in the Witness Protection Program. Twelve years later, when Liz settles on the outskirts of a sleepy Arkansas town as Abigail Lowery, chief of police Brooks Gleason is determined to find out from whence this reclusive newcomer came, and why. Though Abigail keeps to herself, she has been busily putting her hacking skills to use in plotting the downfall of the Volkov organized crime syndicate, whose ruthlessness changed her life. Unrelentingly kind, Brooks slowly breaks down the wall that Abigail has built around herself, and finds his work quickly ratcheted up from cuffing DUIs to helping Abigail find justice. Featuring one of Roberts's cleverest heroines yet, this intricately dramatic book only confirms that Roberts is a master of the genre. (Apr.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
