Witness Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
To Rebecca it was a brave decision that led to her freedom from domestic abuse. To Solomon it was the ultimate betrayal.
It's been ten years since Rebecca's testimony saw Solomon locked away. Enough time for the nightmares to recede, the nerves to relax; enough time to rebuild her life and put the past behind her.
Then one day a phone rings in her bedroom - but it's not her phone. Solomon has been in her home, and has a very simple message for her: for each of the ten years he has spent in jail, Rebecca must witness a crime. And, to make matters worse, she has to choose the victims.
Fail to respond and you get hurt. Talk to police and you die. Ready to play? You have sixty seconds to decide...
As the crimes grow more severe, the victims closer to home, Rebecca is forced to confront a past she had hoped was gone forever.

Rebecca, living now as Becky is now married and living in a new city has tried to put her ex Solomon in the past, and move forward with her husband and daughter. When she finds a phone in her house that wasn't hers, she realizes Solomon has not only found out where she lives, but has been inside of her house. When she starts receiving texts on the phone, she realizes he's playing with her. Each text lists a crime that will be committed against someone she knows unless she nominates someone else to be attacked. As the crimes grow increasingly more severe, Rebecca has to find a way out of this before he comes after her, and on top of that, she doesn't tell her husband what's going on, so their relationship becomes strained as she starts acting strange.
The book is told in alternating timelines, flipping back and forth between present time and the past, as told through diary entries, when she first meets Solomon, up through the point where she gets him arrested. I loved reading the flashback chapters and understanding how her relationship with Solomon starts and how he ropes her in before the abuse starts.
I think most people who have known me for a while know that I'm obsessed with books about stalkers/someone being stalked (I don't know what it is about them, but I love them!!) so I was so excited to get approved for Witness on Netgalley.
I adored this book, and when I wasn't reading it, I sure was thinking about it! I found myself checking the locks on my doors, and pulling my curtains closed because it was such a creepy book (in the best possible way!) It had me terrified for Rebecca, and on the edge of my seat the entire book, dying to find out how she'd manage to get away. There was one part of the book that I definitely saw coming early on, but overall I was dying to find out how everything would end!
I definitely recommend this book for all thriller lovers! Fans of Elizabeth Haynes Into the Darkest Corner will love Witness. It's five huge stars from me, and I'd give it more if I could!
A huge thank you to Netgalley, Caroline Mitchell, and Thomas and Mercer for the opportunity to read and review this novel.
The ending definitely surprised me. I don't want to give too much away but the ending will definitely surprise you. If you like suspenseful novels, this one is definitely for you!
I would read more of Caroline Mitchell in the future.
I won this kindle book for free on Goodreads in exchange for a truthful review
The ending ruined it for me because
1. I saw it coming but was hoping I was wrong.
2. She was so concerned about what was happening to all these people she knew and yet
she killed someone to save herself? I feel like that is kind of a contradicting story line.
Is she someone who is OK with the killing or not? She can do it but if someone else does it's terrible and wrong.
She feels worse for these people that Solomon is hurting than she does for the person she killed?
3. I felt like the "he tried to rape me" part was just thrown in there so we didn't feel bad that she killed this guy.
Solomon did rape her, she should have just killed him if that was the case.
Solomon's demand: Rebecca must witness a crime for each of the ten years he was in prison. He will pick the crimes... and she must pick the victims. And if she goes to the authorities, she will die.
The book was good enough that I was never tempted to quit before getting to the end. (And readers who finish will be rewarded with a twist.) But Rebecca is not a very likeable or sympathetic person, and her decision making really sucked. I really didn't get emotionally invested in the story. While reading the book, my brain was engaged, but my heart wasn't.

I just couldn't believe what happened to Rebecca. I know its only a story, but it was so realistically portrayed, you felt like it was yourself in those situations, and wondered what you could do about it.
The twist at the end was surprising, but had an idea it would be something like that. It was so convincing.
Could this sort.of thing really happen? I'm not sure that what she did could go unnoticed, but the description of everything which happened was quite plausible, and believable.
The writing is superb, and I couldn't rest until I knew the outcome of it all.
A highly recommended book, and I am off to peruse Caroline Mitchell's other books.
Twist at the end was a great way to finish, I can relate to Rebecca and the suffering she had to endure and how difficult it was to escape.
I had years of it but seriously if you are in a similar situation take care and the first chance you get to leave please do as it will never stop and they don't change however much you want to believe they will..
