Hello! Today I’m pleased to welcome you to JuliaPalooza for my stop on the Blog Tour for I, Witness by Niki Mackay, which is available to buy now (links below).
About the book
They say I’m a murderer. Six years ago, Kate Reynolds was found holding the body of her best friend; covered in blood, and clutching the knife that killed her.
I plead guilty. Kate has been in prison ever since, but now her sentence is up. She is being released.
But the truth is, I didn’t do it. There’s only one person who can help: Private Investigator Madison Attallee, the first officer on the scene all those years ago.
But uncovering the truth means catching a killer.
I, Witness is a gripping psychological mystery thriller with a great premise.
The story starts with an intriguing and disturbing prologue and continues with increasingly thrilling chapters told from multiple viewpoints. The book is compelling from the start but I particularly raced through the last 50% in one sitting.
I loved Madison: grumpy, sweary, damaged, rock-loving Madison Attalee, who has her own mysterious background and does not suffer fools gladly. Kate is a sympathetic character and all the narrators (not wanting to spoil who those are) bring something to the plot. There are some interesting and clever parallels drawn between some of our main protagonists.
Niki Mackay has written a really well-plotted story; it is dramatic and emotional; it is dark and twisted and chilling. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a good, complex psychological thriller to really get their teeth into and I look forward to her next book!
