Kate Reynolds knows she didn't kill her best friend. So why did she plead guilty?

Robert Galbraith meets Susie Steiner in this gripping debut from Niki Mackay.

They say I'm a murderer.

Six years ago, Kate Reynolds was found holding the body of her best friend; covered in blood, and clutching the knife that killed her.

I plead guilty.

Kate has been in prison ever since, but now her sentence is up. She is being released.

But the truth is, I didn't do it.

There's only one person who can help: Private Investigator Madison Attalee, the first officer on the scene all those years ago.

But there's someone out there who doesn't want Kate digging up the past. Someone who is willing to keep the truth buried at any cost.

Robert Galbraith meets Susie Steiner in this gripping debut from Niki Mackay.

Cracking thriller and a great female protagonist. Swearing, smoking, rock-music loving (and not neurotic or passive!) My kind of woman. — C.J. Tudor, author of The Chalk Man
I was swept away by this punchy, pacy thriller with its sharp characterisation and confident plotting. I devoured it in a single day. I particularly loved Madison's fabulously chain-smoking, hyper-feminine sharpness. There were so many things done well here - the presentation of domestic abuse, dysfunctional families, the uneven dynamic of female friendships that border on bullying - so much to enjoy. So looking forward to the next one. — Helen Callaghan, author of Dear Amy
Tough and uncompromising, I, Witness had me totally gripped. I'm looking forward to hearing more from PI Madison Attalee. — Alex Lake, author of Killing Kate, After Anna and Copy Cat
An absolutely gripping thriller founded on the horror of familial abuse and a great, flawed, female PI. There will be more Madison Attalee, I hope. — Dame Jenni Murray
Totally engaging, fast-paced and edgy ... completely captivating. I, Witness kept me guessing till the very end. Pick this book up if you're after a page-turner with attitude. — Elle Croft, author of The Guilty Wife
I couldn't put I,Witness down. A hugely accomplished novel with a dark, sad story at its heart - the characters are so well drawn that I felt every twist along with them as Mackay expertly manipulates the reader. With a wonderful, chain-smoking and perfume-spraying private detective driving the narrative, this is a 2018 must-read. — Phoebe Morgan, author of The Doll House
Cutting-edge gripping. — Sam King, author of The Choice
Had me hooked within two pages, it has every bit as much appeal as some of the bestsellers of the last few years, like Girl on the Train. — Robert Scragg, author of What Falls Between the Cracks

How perfect is too perfect?Ross Ransome is at the top of his profession; one of the most successful, and certainly one of the richest, plastic surgeons in the business. Such a man would expect his wife to be perfect - and why not? After all, he has spent enough hours in surgery to get her that way.But when his wife falls ill she turns her back on conventional medicine, and her arid marriage, and seeks help from the world of alternative medicine and a charismatic therapist who promises not just medical salvation. For Ransome, this is the ultimate betrayal. It defies logic, and Ross Ransome is a profoundly logical man. Logically, he can see no reason why any man should have his wife when he can't. It's all completely rational...'Irresistibly readable as well as utterly believable' Robert Goddard'Britain's closest equivalent to Stephen King.'
