Time for another book review, this one for a wonderful little book entitled The Only Witness by Pamela Beason.
First thoughts, I ran through this book in two days and didn't want to put it down. The story - a seventeen year old girl leaves her infant child in a car while she runs into the store, only to find that the baby has been kidnapped. Turns out there is one witness to the event but that witness happens to be a gorilla that knows sign language. Very unique story/plot and the book is perfectly placed with characters that you end up caring about (human and animal alike).
This book would be perfect as a movie, especially the scenes where the investigator, Finn, is trying to "interview" the witness.
All in all, a highly recommended book that is a must read for anyone who likes a well told mystery.
