Summary

A missing actress. A bored writer. A matter of life and death when their stories collide....

Actress Wendy Knight thought her life was finally turning around. But when her ex came back into the picture, he wanted to take all of that away from her and more...and then she disappeared. 

Scriptwriter Angie Bearing longs to write something deeper than daytime soaps. When the plot for a new thriller comes to her, she doesn't question it. At least until she discovers an uncanny resemblance between her story and the unsolved disappearance of an actress named Wendy. Angie begins to investigate. As she retraces Wendy's footsteps, she doesn't realize that someone is watching her. Someone who would do anything to keep the awful truth buried for good....

Witness for Wendy is the captivating first book in the Bearing Witness series, a collection of exciting thrillers. If you like surprising twists, edge-of-your-seat suspense, and a touch of the unusual, then you'll love MK Turner's fast-paced mystery.

Brilliant super natural mystery compelling book

I so enjoyed this book dipping in and out of supernatural perception it was hard to work out which character was the nasty one but enjoyable getting to that point, I hope there are going to be more books brilliant narration

A great start

I enjoyed listening to Nikki Loy , did a great job of narrating. This is a great first book to a series. This book has drama , supernatural elements and suspense. It is written in the third person . I was gripped from the start.

Don't read the blurb, just listen and enjoy

I had no idea what to expect as I rarely read the blurb if I know and like the author. M K Turner is a brilliant author who creates well rounded and believable characters. This book was so enjoyable as I had no idea what was going to happen or how the two women were linked. I loved this book and highly recommend it. Nikki Loy did a great job as narrator too.

A great read/listen

Very different to any other Marcia Turner book you may have read. if you've ever thought about psychics/mediums (or even if you haven't), you will enjoy this novel. It builds up to a very exciting ending and leaves you wanting more!

Unusual but interesting story

I was quite apprehensive at the start and almost didn’t persevere but once I realised what was going on I really enjoyed it. It is nicely read too

Exciting start to a series

As a huge fan of the Meredith & Hodge audiobooks I was keen to have a listen to this series rather than reading it so I was thrilled when the audiobook version was released.

Well, first of all, it's nothing like Meredith & Hodge, something the author makes very clear from the start. But then, perhaps the world couldn't cope with another John Meredith, haha. The dual timeline in this book is very well executed and easy to follow, unlike some I've read. The characters are nicely fleshed out and either easy to like or easy to loathe, depending which is intended of course.

I'm especially glad that the story is written in the third person which helps it flow and doesn't bloat the pages with the character's innermost thoughts, fears and turmoils. Yes, these emotions are all there and well described but often when told in first person narrative I feel they can sound whiny, self-indulgent and less likeable. For me it's easier to follow the story from outside where the reader/listener can see things the main character can't.

The narrator does a superb job of telling the story and giving life to the characters and is a pleasure to listen to.

The story kept me enthralled from the start and I can't wait to listen to the next in the Bearing Witness series.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author and am voluntarily writing an honest and unbiased review.

twisted

This was very hard to listen to because of the psychotic depravity of the killings. After all the ruthless murders, I wished the killer had a more violent painful death. Intense , raw , depraved , and dark and twisted. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a great job bringing it to life.

Just wow!

I was not expecting this. Scriptwriter Angie's story turns out to be such a great mystery. There were so many twists, I loved it! Witness for Wendy turns out to be a real surprise. Just as you think it's a modern day mystery it turns into an edge of your story you can't stop listening to. The narrator, Nikki Loy does an exceptional job with bringing the characters to life. Looking forward to the rest of the series. This was a great book to listen to and I would like to thank the author, narrator, or publisher for providing me this audiobook at no cost in exchange for my unbiased review.

WOW what an intense journey

Wow..I am not sure where to start. MK Turner launched it out of the park with this one. I have been reading another of her series and this one is definitely different. This genre twist until recently has not had any appeal to me. Now by opportunity I have come to realize I like the suspense that this secret creates for the entire story and how it heightens the intensity of emotions through out. I hope you are wondering what I am referring to as I am not telling. Nikki Loy does a stellar job of bringing the story and characters to life and sets an atmosphere that makes this a true page turner although it is an audio book. I am hoping that the rest of this series comes to Audible too. Job well done...which is nothing new for MK Turner. I hope that I continue to encounter Nikki Loy too.
