Summary

Summary

An ordinary life …

Leigh Collier has worked hard to build what looks like a normal life. She’s an up-and-coming defense attorney at a prestigious law firm in Atlanta, would do anything for her sixteen-year-old daughter, Maddy, and is managing to successfully co-parent through a pandemic after an amicable separation from her husband, Walter.

Hides a devastating past …

But Leigh’s ordinary life masks a childhood no one should have to endure … a childhood tarnished by secrets, broken by betrayal, and ultimately destroyed by a brutal act of violence.

But now the past is catching up …

On a Sunday night at her daughter’s school play, she gets a call from one of the firm’s partners, who wants Leigh to come on board to defend a wealthy man accused of multiple counts of rape. Though wary of the case, it becomes apparent she doesn’t have much choice if she wants to keep her job. They’re scheduled to go to trial in one week. When she meets the accused face-to-face, she realizes that it’s no coincidence that he’s specifically asked for her to represent him. She knows him. And he knows her. More to the point, he may know what happened over twenty years ago, and why Leigh has spent two decades avoiding her past.

And time is running out.

Suddenly she has a lot more to lose than this case. The only person who can help is her younger, estranged sister, Callie—the last person Leigh would ever want to drag into this after all they’ve been through. But with the life-shattering truth in danger of being revealed, she has no choice …

Editorial Reviews

“Karin Slaughter’s False Witness is a twisty, searingly contemporary mystery steeped in a dark past, and she weaves a story that catches your breath and keeps you gasping and guessing until the end.” Stacey Abrams, New York Times bestselling author
“Karin Slaughter is a master of the thriller genre and her genius comes through on every page, in every character, through every plot twist.” Francesca Momplaisir, author of My Mother’s House
“Slaughter offers us a high-stakes thriller that handles the tragedy of addiction with empathy and grace. Her heroines are believable, flawed, and courageous.” Oyinkan Braithwaite, author of My Sister, the Serial Killer
“Slaughter doesn’t save her twists for the end, instead peppering them throughout the intricately layered story amid stomach-churning near misses and gripping character revelations. Equal parts hyperrealistic thriller and epic tragedy, Slaughter’s latest is pitch-perfect storytelling.” Booklist (starred review)
“Superb…Slaughter is writing at the top of her game.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“A master of the no-holds-barred law enforcement thriller turns to legal intrigue, with shattering results…Combines disarming sensitivity to the nuances of the tangled relations among the characters with sledgehammer plotting.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
