When sixteen-year-old Hannah Sheraton is arrested for the murder of her step grandfather, the chief justice of the California Supreme court, her distraught mother turns to her old college roommate, Josie Baylor-Bates, for help.
Josie, once a hot-shot criminal defense attorney, left the fast track behind for a small practice in Hermosa Beach, California. But Hannah Sheraton intrigues her and, when the girl is charged as an adult, Josie cannot turn her back. But the deeper she digs the more Josie realizes that politics, the law and family relationships create a combustible and dangerous situation. When the horrible truth is uncovered it can save Hannah Sheraton or destroy them both.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
I was swept along with the story line and there were just enough twists and turns to keep it riveting. Love, hate and greed can be powerful motivators and Rebecca Forster showed that in this book with all of her characters. Now I’m looking forward to reading more in this series and also reading more of this author’s work.
Don’t pass this one up! I don’t write many reviews but this one deserves a 5 star rating. I admit I sometimes get bored in the middle of many books and skip pages or skip to the end but this one got my full attention all the way through.
Hostile Witness is just a fantastic, completely absorbing read, the kind of book that makes you hate your job because having to get up early for work means having to set the novel aside in the wee hours of the morning just so you can get a few hours of sleep. Any thriller is best judged by the number of hours’ sleep you miss, and Hostile Witness is right up there with the best of them.
I absolutely LOVED this book. It grabs your attention right from the start and doesn’t let up! I would recommend this book to anyone. I just wish that Amazon allowed more than the usual 5 stars, as I would have given it MUCH MORE!
Absolutely quality legal thriller from cover to cover (and I’m a very picky reader). What an amazing storyteller with so much knowledge of the law! And, although this book was written several years ago, it’s hard not to see immediate parallels between the main character and the “tragic” real life characters in Hollywood making headlines today.

About The Author
I marketed a world-class spa when it was still called a gym and did business in China before there were western toilettes at the Great Wall. Then I wrote a book on a crazy dare and found my passion.
Now, I am a USA Today and Amazon best selling author with more than 26 books to my name – and if you ask me where all those words came from I’d be hard pressed to tell you. All I know is that I wake up with a story in my head and go to bed the same way.
I write thrillers with an eye toward the very human element of my characters. The Witness Series follows the lives of attorney Josie Bates, her ward, Hannah, and Josie’s lover, Archer. The series was voted #1 in PRG Reviewers Choice for series and Eyewitness was voted #1 in the mystery/thriller genre. I try to push creative boundaries with my non-series books. Before Her Eyes garnered a B and P Readers Choice Award for best mystery.
I have taught at the UCLA Writers Program, UC Irvine and Cal State Long Beach and lecture at writers groups, women’s conferences and philanthropic events. I am most proud of the work I do with The Young Writers Conference, a program that helps motivate middle school children to explore the power of words. I am particularly drawn to kids who want to write because both my sons have always had a passion for it. Eric is a playwright and novelist (see Eric Czuleger) and Alex is in film.
When I’m not writing I’m traveling, on a tennis court, working a sewing machine or reading. Thank you so much for taking a look at my author page. You can find out more about me – and leave me a note – at www.rebeccaforster.com
