Summary

Branson county sheriff Hank Worth struggles to uncover the truth behind a fatal car crash in this absorbing mystery.

Hank Worth thinks he’s performed a good deed when he pulls over the car of six teens caught speeding on a Saturday night and lets them off with a warning and instructions to go home. When he responds to an urgent call minutes later, he realises he made a fatal error of judgement – every teen is dead.

Struggling to come to terms with his role in the crash, Hank begins to suspect foul play. While notifying the parents of the children involved, his suspicions grow when an unidentified body is discovered in one of their homes and a teenage girl is found after apparently attempting to commit suicide. Hank believes the incidents are connected, but those around him disagree.

Is Hank right, or is his guilt making him search for answers where there are none?

    In an enthralling new historical novel from national bestselling author Kate Quinn, two women—a female spy recruited to the real-life Alice Network in France during World War I and an unconventional American socialite searching for her cousin in 1947—are brought together in a mesmerizing story of courage and redemption.  
    1947. In the chaotic aftermath of World War II, American college girl Charlie St. Clair is pregnant, unmarried, and on the verge of being thrown out of her very proper family. She's also nursing a desperate hope that her beloved cousin Rose, who disappeared in Nazi-occupied France during the war, might still be alive. So when Charlie's parents banish her to Europe to have her "little problem" taken care of, Charlie breaks free and heads to London, determined to find out what happened to the cousin she loves like a sister. 
    1915. A year into the Great War, Eve Gardiner burns to join the fight against the Germans and unexpectedly gets her chance when she's recruited to work as a spy. Sent into enemy-occupied France, she's trained by the mesmerizing Lili, the "Queen of Spies", who manages a vast network of secret agents right under the enemy's nose.  
    Thirty years later, haunted by the betrayal that ultimately tore apart the Alice Network, Eve spends her days drunk and secluded in her crumbling London house. Until a young American barges in uttering a name Eve hasn't heard in decades, and launches them both on a mission to find the truth...no matter where it leads. 
    “Both funny and heartbreaking, this epic journey of two courageous women is an unforgettable tale of little-known wartime glory and sacrifice. Quinn knocks it out of the park with this spectacular book!”—Stephanie Dray, New York Times bestselling author of America's First Daughter

    For these five friends, taking the back road was a horrible idea. 
    Overview: 
    Rebecca Long is a college student at Tulane University. With school out and the summer heat and unbearable humidity swallowing New Orleans, Rebecca can't wait to join her friends on a road trip to Chicago for a rock concert.  
     
    Don't take a wrong turn... 
     
    While traveling a desolate highway in the Mississippi Delta on a slight detour, the group's car breaks down, and they find themselves stranded. 
     
    But when a man offers to assist them, the students find it's not always good to accept the help of strangers. Rebecca is knocked unconscious and wakes up tied to a wheelchair. It's dark, she's alone, and she has no idea where she is. 
     
    Then, the lights come on, and the game begins. 
     
    Now, Rebecca's only mission is simple: survive the night. 
     
    Perfect for any fan of slasher films such as Friday the 13th, Halloween, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and House of 1,000 Corpses. 
     
    What Readers Are Saying: 
    "This book brought back the best parts about the old slasher movies, but with a new twist and a great ending. This one will keep you guessing all the way to the very end." - J. Scott Sharp 
     
    "This story is gritty, visceral, and it takes you on one hell of memorable ride. The tale breathes new life into the classic slasher genre and carves out a very sadistic experience for the reader." - Jeremy Megargee 
     
    "This is my new favorite book! I could not put it down!" - Meghan Cowhan

    Author Q&A: 
    Tell us about The Witness. 
    The Witness is my second book and was highly influenced by my love for the classic slasher films from the 70's and 80's. If you're a fan of the good ole days of campy slasher horror, brought to us by legends such as Wes Craven or John Carpenter, then I think you'll enjoy The Witness. 
     
    What can readers expect? 
    A high body count (laughs). The book has some pretty grotesque scenes without going too far over the edge. It's not 'torture porn.' The gory scenes have meaning and purpose, and the overall story is suspenseful. 
     
    Who is this book for? 
    As I mentioned before, this book was highly influenced by old school slasher horror. So, if you're a fan of Friday the 13th, Halloween, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Hills Have Eyes or The Devil's Rejects, then you'll enjoy The Witness. 
     
     
    ***WARNING*** The Witness is meant for mature audiences only. It features some graphic descriptions of violence and death including cannibalism and torture. If you are not used to reading extreme horror or watching slasher films, this may not be the book for you. Please purchase at your own discretion.
