The Witness by Dee Henderson

The signs are clear that Dee Henderson's writing days are long past. She DESPERATELY needs to either stop using the same storyline over and over again or to stop writing altogether. Though I found the beginning of The Witness to be interesting, my interest quickly plummeted after just a few chapters.
The plot is supposed to be about a woman who witnesses a daytime drive-by murder in a mall and then hides the deeper information from the police. Afterward, she disappears, using several aliases and trying to escape the killer, who is chasing her. SOUND FAMILIAR?
The notion that three friends from the local police department can fall in love with three sisters, all practically at the same time, is absolutely ridiculous.
The characters are bad, as usual. If you think I'm bashing Henderson's writing style, then you were right.
There are probably plenty of people out there who will like this book, but I did not.
Basically, if you've read any of Dee Henderson's books, especially the O'Malley series, you've definitely read this book as well.
1.5 stars
