California defense attorney Tony Lord returns to his hometown of Lake City, Ohio to defend his oldest friend, Sam, who is accused of murdering his 16-year-old lover. The case resonates with Tony because he faced similar accusations 28 years ago when his high school girlfriend was brutally murdered. Although Tony was never charged, the townspeople--Sam included--never fully believed in his innocence. Now Tony must prepare for an emotional trial that echoes the angst and accusations of years past.

This Patterson suspense packs a wallop. Tony Lord returns to his home town to defend his childhood best friend in a murder case but it is another case that haunts Tony. Where there are points where the story drags and at some point the plot becomes predictable--that isn't what makes Silent Witness such a great read. It's the characters. All parties involve are multi-dimensional and practically leap off the page as living creations
