The Witness by John Ryder / #Review #BooksOnTour @bookouture @JohnRyder101


“Find my daughter in twenty-four hours. Or she’s dead.”

Kyle Roche is a man whose job it is to stay invisible. Dark, mysterious, and only sometimes on the right side of the law, only a lucky few know how to reach him: Kyle can fix their problems, however dangerous.

Now he’s been hired to save a woman in Witness Protection, one who doesn’t officially exist anymore. But before he can keep her safe, he has to find her. And he has less than twenty-four hours to do it…

Savannah Nicholls is in hiding because of a tragic mistake. Her mother insists her daughter is just a nice girl, from a good family, that she’s never gotten in trouble in her life. But she also says someone knows where her daughter is. And they want to kill her.

If he’s going to keep Savannah safe, Roche needs to know who is after her, as well as what she witnessed, who her enemies are, and if they have really been able to find her. But how can he protect a woman who is as invisible as he is?

Because the clock is ticking…




What would you do when you witness a crime? Would you come forward and speak up for justice or would you, fearing for you life, keep quiet? In reality you don’t have to worry, because when threats are sent your way, the police makes sure you disappear from the face of the earth. You become someone new when you become part of the Witness Protection Program and everything is hunky-dory, right? Well, …

I am a big fan. The author manages to fill this book to the rafters with action. You hardly get any moment of respite and the maelstrom picks you up again and forces you forward. 

I just love this kind of action heroes. They keep on fighting until justice is served even if they are barely alive in the end. 

The author not only created a fearless man, but a clever one at that too. Our hero Roche made me smile. Even though sometimes it seems like he missed the ball, he always came back and in the end he showed us he was in fact very well prepared and fooled them all.

In a nutshell another great book by this author. I can’t wait for the next adventure he will treat us to. 5 stars

Thank you, John Ryder and Bookouture
