Publisher's Weekly

This latest romantic thriller from Henderson (the two series O'Malley and Uncommon Heroes) and her first with Tyndale House has the elements that have made her so popular in the inspirational Christian market: interesting characters, an intriguing plot and fast pacing. Amanda Griffin is deep in hiding, using various aliases to fly under the radar of nefarious criminal interests. When she witnesses a multiple murder, Deputy Chief of Police Luke Granger befriends her. He fails to convince Amanda to come out of hiding, however. Three years later, Amanda's story and that of two newly minted millionaire sisters come together, and Luke finds his interest in Amanda becoming more personal. There is a foreshadowing of tragedy, and Henderson isn't afraid to kill off a beloved character in the interest of a compelling plot. She does an admirable job dispensing just the right amount of information, and her penchant for resilient women characters is endearing. Yet despite mostly strong writing, her dialogue is sometimes stiff and a few plot segments strain credibility (e.g., Amanda working incognito at a jewelry store in her sisters' hometown). Better is the well-paced action, the romance, and Henderson's integration of faith themes. The conclusion tapers off, a major disappointing note in this otherwise engrossing stand-alone entertainment. (Feb.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

For eight years, Amanda Griffin has been on the run from Richard Wise. She holds the access to twenty million dollars of ill-gotten funds, and a list of his contacts that she’s gradually turning over to the police. One mistake could snuff out her life. Her family already thinks she’s dead.

Trouble arrives when her sisters receive a huge inheritance from the father they never knew. Afraid that Wise will take revenge on Marie and Tracey, Amanda moves back to town to keep an eye on them -- and let them know she’s still alive, for now.

Police Chief Luke Granger met Amanda three years ago, and he hasn’t forgotten her. One of his homicide detectives is dating Tracey; another is just getting to know Marie. Luke, Marsh, and Connor will do everything in their power to keep the three Griffin women safe. But it may not be enough.

Dee Henderson departs from her usual pattern by focusing on three couples, making her protagonists older, and having the series more integrated; in fact, many of the story threads aren’t finished in this book. But the book has her signature blend of mystery and suspense. The characters are fully drawn, but Henderson’s point-of-view choices prevent readers from connecting as deeply as those in her previous novels. Amanda and Tracey are never the viewpoint characters, and I think the book suffers because of it, especially with Amanda. Hopefully future books will allow readers to get to know her better. In all, The Witness is an excellent choice for romantic suspense fans. -- Katie Hart, Christian Book Previews.com

    This review was written for The Witness.
    Plot: I really enjoyed the plot. From page one, you are thrown into conflict and it doesn't end until the last chapter. There are so many twists and turns that when something begins to seem predictable, the story goes in another direction.

    Characters: It was hard to identify with the characters in this book. I understand that some of the characters needed to have their identities more shaded, but I felt that all of them were portrayed in this way. I didn't feel that there was enough personal qualities to really understand them. The characters were seen at work and in their relationships, but they were rarely alone and described personally.

    Themes: The main theme in this story is trust. The characters have to learn to trust each other through everything that is happening around them. There is also a focus on trusting in God in all of life's circumstances, good or bad. The author does an excellent job of allowing the characters to grow in trust from the very begging.

    Emotion: There was not a lot of emotional entanglement with this book. I read it and moved on. There wasn't a lot left to contemplate. There were times in the book when I was shocked or surprised, but overall, it was pretty dry.

    Overall: There were many times, while reading this book, that I had to re-read parts because they didn't seem to make sense. Many times, even after going back, those parts still didn't make a lot of sense. I feel as if this book as a whole needs some editing.

    For the first 3/4 of the book, it was really interesting. The rest of it seemed as if the writer was in a hurry to get through, and some of it made no sense. A big disappointment.

    The suspense in this book is great and keeps you reading to find out what is happening next.

    However, towards the end, the book becomes a bit flat. The message about God and His work isn't that well woven into the story and comes out more towards the end of the book. No one's faith comes out too clearly.

    Otherwise, it is a great read.

    This is my first time reading Dee Henderson book and I'm extremely disappointed. This story did not focus on the main important characters and the story is all over the place that some of it digress from the main point. The characters of the story were not introduced well at all so it is kind of hanging and way out flat. As a result, it is so hard to be engrossed in the book as I keep skipping all the time. I just wished that Marsh will have his own story since the ending is so sad.
