Loved it so much, I've read it 4 times! I NEVER read a book more than once but this book, I'll make an exception.

really good! I liked the progression and suspense. It had me spooked most of the way through to the point I started checking if my own doors were locked or not.

Plot Synopsis: It's been a month, but high school student Lucy Monroe still can't move on from the death of her best friend and neighbor, Allen Torrance. So when her mother gives her some of Allen's possessions to give away, Lucy isn't very thrilled. But among though items is a videotape Allen made--one that one the surface appears completely innocuous. But little did Lucy know what was hidden on that videotape.....or the lengths someone will go to keep their secret under wraps.

I liked this, and I'm not sure why.

Lucy's friend Allen died recently, in what's believed to be an accident, and Lucy's been asked to give out his personal items to friends. With the items is a video tape - Allen was an avid video photographer (is that the right term?) - that Lucy plans to have edited and voiced over, as a sort of memorial.

But before she can watch the tape, strange things start happening - someone locks her in a cupboard at school, steals the original recording (but misses a copy

Silent Witness is a thrilling horror story about stalking killer who would do anything to keep Lucy who has the only evidence on a tape a of this mistery killer. Silent Witness is an exciting story that would keep you on the edge of your seat to know who is this mistery stalking man or woman. Silent Witness is a good book that readers would like rated about at 3 stars.

I decided that this book didn't sound as interesting as I once thought. Going to send it off into the world
