Silent Witness begins in 1967,
in a small Midwestern town. Seventeen-year-old Tony Lord, Lake City’s star
athlete, seems destined for great things. His driving ambition is precisely
what attracts Alison Taylor, the daughter of the town’s leading family, and it
is what sets Tony apart from his two closest friends: Sam Robb and Sam’s girl,
Suddenly everything changes. Alison Taylor is brutally murdered, and
Tony is the number-one suspect. The town turns against him. His friendship with
Sam is destroyed. And Tony leaves Lake City, vowing never to return.
Twenty-seven years later, an urgent phone call from Sue changes Tony’s
life once more. For Tony Lord is now a San Francisco lawyer—a relentless
advocate dedicated to the defense of his clients. Sue’s plea for help is one he
cannot ignore: her husband, Sam Robb, now the vice principal of Lake City High
School, is suspected of the murder of a female student. In seeking to save him,
Tony must confront not only the fear that Sam is a murderer, but the concealed
passions and buried truths that underlie Alison’s death so long ago. Download and start listening now!
