Review: Silent Witness

Silent Witness is a novel by American writer Richard North Patterson.

“Utterly compelling courtroom drama” Is what it reads on the back cover and I agree.

Jumping back and forwards between high school and 28 years later present day this book tells the story of two close friends who are both joined in tragedies. The tragedies are murder, the circumstances have similarities, the rural town in Ohio hasn’t changed but the two high school friends have followed different paths.

I enjoyed reading the book. Yes, around half of it is set in a courtroom, but the character development and dialogue are well written and entertaining – you don’t have to be a lawyer to enjoy the book. It was set in a legal context but it was really about the relationships between the main characters.

Silent Witness makes me want to find some more Richard North Patterson books!
