Featured Indie Book: Expert Witness (Rebecca Forster)

Expert Witness (by Rebecca Forster)
Featured Indie Book on Indie Author News: Legal Thriller Expert Witness by Rebecca Forster.

"Expert Witness by Rebecca Forster is simply one of the best thrillers I've ever read. I've never read a book before that was so skillfully choreographed with descriptions of people and places that I felt right at the scene and in the middle of the action. The first five pages bombarded my senses and drew me into the story with a passion to read more.
What happened to Josie? Who has abducted this brilliant lawyer who has made so many enemies over the course of her career?"
- Reader Review

The Book has been self-published via Amazon, B&N and Smashwords and is available as eBook and Paperback - 243 pages - released in December 2011.

About the Book

It’s two in the morning when Hannah Sheraton slips into Archer’s Hermosa Beach apartment to see if Josie Bates sleeps in his bed. But Josie isn’t there.

In fact, Josie isn’t anywhere.

When her Jeep is found abandoned in a parking lot near the Redondo pier, the only clue to her whereabouts leads Archer to Daniel Young, an expert witness for the prosecution in the case that made Josie’s reputation as a defense attorney ten years earlier. Fighting to keep Hannah from being taken into custody by child protective services, racing against a clock ticking off the minutes of Josie’s life, Archer reluctantly partners with Daniel Young and a rogue Hermosa Beach detective, Liz Driscoll, to race down a winding road of intrigue.

From the Hollywood Hills to the glitzy evangelical enclave of Orange County; the seedy side of Los Angeles to the pristine and remote California mountains, Archer bores into the past. What he finds is that the woman he loves was once a ruthless and hated defense attorney, that the system he believes in has released a double murderer, and that there is more than one person who would be happy if Josie Bates was never seen again.

Reviews (Excerpts)

- "[...] Strong and sympathetic characters interacting on a highly charged intense level, attention to detail and a high intensity action/adventure thriller combine to make this a must read as the past catches up with our principal character and she is made to pay for her prior sins. Rebecca is kind enough to detail at the end all the steps that lead to Josie's capture and confinement and how the real villain manages to disguise his actions and his warped reasoning that fool all of us including the other characters in her novel. This one deserves five stars. " - Arthur J Levine

- "[...] Intertwined with this fast-paced abduction storyline are these emotionally believable characters trying to carve out space for themselves and each other. I also liked the way the secondary characters come to life with as much drama and purpose as the primary characters." - Bruce A Raterink

- "I chose the 5 star rating because I just loved the book and It kept me wanting more the more I read. [...]" - Elspeth Hall

- "Great read. Rebecca Forster is a fantastic author that weaves her characters through intrical plots that slowly reveal keeping you involved until the very end! " - Tim (Amazon)

- "Once you start reading you have a hard time putting the book down. Love the series! Can't wait till for the next one! " - DD (Amazon)
