Today I am very excited to be opening the Blog Tour for Kevin Marsh’s book, The Witness.
About the Book
Landscape artist Josie MacDonald is coming to the end of her stay in Scotland. Whilst out on a painting trip early one morning she witnesses a horrific murder.
Mr Mac, the deranged killer, is aware that she has seen him at work and sets out to kill her but Josie manages to escape by plunging desperately into the North Sea.
Mr Mac, convinced that she has perished, discovers a few days later that she has survived and sets out to track her down. He follows her to London where he subjects her to terrible torment as one by one her friends are drawn into the nightmare. Josie returns to Scotland in order to discover the truth where her worst fears are realised.
With time running out and a killer on the loose she must survive long enough to bring their horrifying ordeal to an end.
The first thing that got my attention with this book is the fact that the author is from Canterbury and I always try and support local authors when I can. The second thing was how brilliant this book sounds.
The book starts off with a woman witnessing a murder and then being spotted by the murderer. He chases her and she ends up falling into a river and being dragged down stream in the fast currents.
After this strange things keep happening to her and her friends and she knows that the man is after her.
This is a very dark psychological book, which kept me guessing all the way through as I couldn’t see how she was going to escape, if in fact she was going to.
This book is full of action right from the very first page all through the book as we are transported from Scotland down to London and back again.
I really enjoyed this book and will be on the look out for similar ones from Kevin in the future.
