After a massacre at a Bosnian prison camp, a young girl is found alone, clutching a diary, so traumatized she can't even speak. Twenty years later, the last witness to the prison guards' brutal crimes must hunt down those responsible to learn what happened to her family.

Twenty years ago, after the fall of Yugoslavia, the world watched in horror as tens of thousands were killed or imprisioned in work camps during an "ethnic cleansing" in Bosnia. Carla Lane has little knowledge of what went on halfway around the world when she was a child. She is living a near perfect life in New York City, married and soon to have a family of her own. But when her husband is murdered by a group of Serbian war criminals, strange memories start coming back, and she discovers that she underwent extensive therapy as a girl to suppress her memories. She is given her mother's diary, which unlocks her childhood memories and reveals that she was, along with her parents and young brother, imprisoned in a war camp outside Sarajevo. As her memories come back, it becomes clear that she is the last witness to a brutal massacre in the prison and that her brother may still be alive. She sets out to find her brother, but first she must hunt down the war criminals responsible for destroying her life. But these killers will stop at nothing to protect their anonymity and their deadly pasts...and are determined to silence the last witness to their crimes.

From the talented storyteller who gave us "The Second Messiah," "The Last Witness" serves up another captivating and nail-biting thriller that will keep you holding your breath right to the end.

Review from Rambles of a SAHM by Fitzysmom on 8/19/14
Rating

The Last Witness is a riveting story about a woman discovering the secrets to her past. Carla Lane is a survivor of the Bosnian rape camp better known as Devil's Hill.

Carla's young mind completely suppressed all of her memories of the atrocities that she and her family went through. But on the day that her husband Jan was killed by a car bomb a Pandora's box was opened and the nightmare that she had gone through began to surface.

This is a story full of intrigue and plot twists that kept me up way too late because I was only going to read one more chapter. Unfortunately it is also a horrific story that is based on very real events. These unfathomable crimes happened a little over twenty years ago. I vaguely remember the news reports. Quite frankly it all happened during what I refer to as the diaper years. Across the globe from me a genocide of unbelievable proportions was raging on, but I was too busy with what was in front of me to take much notice.

I must applaud Mr. Meade for penning this eye-opening suspense thriller. It would have probably been easier to write something totally made. Instead you chose to remind us through the use of storytelling that not only did this event happen, but unless we pay attention it can happen again. Thank you. I pray that this work makes its way into the hands of the masses so that we can all be reminded to never forget.

I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
