Final Witness provides a solid plot, and relatable characters. It's refreshing to follow a string female protagonist who is grounded and confident while still utterly human.

This book was fast-paced and difficult to put down. Parts were quite predictable such as the romantic involvement of two characters. It's a typical beautiful girl gets nice guy scenerio. They fall for each other too quickly and you're not sure who's pursuing whom.
Wouldn't you like a story once in awhile where the main character gets killed? Does the main character always have to be a hero?
The main plot involves the Russian Mafia. Mafia-type stories are not my type of read, however, I've read one of Mr. Bell's books previously and that was really enjoyable so I gave this one a try.
In this one, you'll see that the government can't always be trusted. It's too bad too, that the legal system isn't really righteous, although this book portrays it the way it is. The criminal is so often portrayed as the victim, and they are often victorious! It really depends on the judge, jury, circumstances, witnesses and your lawyer. Evidence is quite often dismissed.
Anyway, yes, it is worth the read. Just expect the expected in places.

This has got to be one of worst books I ever read.
The fact that 8 people gave it 5 stars is truly amazing.

I was not disappointed. James Scott Bell has written another intriguing book. I couldn't put it down.

This book takes you on a ride. Strap yourself in and wait for the Final Witness to appear.
James Scott Bell does many of the things that Grisham does so well: tight plotting, believable motivations, crackling dialogue. Like "The Great Divide," by T. Davis Bunn, Bell reaches for the top rungs of legal thrillerdom and succeeds. The narrative is leaner and less colorful than Bunn's, but this only allows it to race faster.
While working in some valid Christian themes, often based on legal examples, "Final Witness" tells the compelling story of Rachel Ybarra, a young paralegal working on a case against the Russian mob. The details of the courtroom seem well-researched, and the struggles that Rachel goes through--with her alcoholic father, her boss, her FBI friends, and particularly her nemesis "The Man"--move credibly to a very satisfying end with a few surprises along the way.
Bell's other books are going to the top of my wish list.

I'm not usually a fan of legal dramas, but then I'd never read James Scott Bell before. This striking, well-written novel will keep you turning pages well after lights out! Set in L.A., Final Witness deals with the Russian mafia, a subject I'd never read about before. Fascinating detail, well-rounded characters and colorful description are obvious trademarks of this author. But it is his fabulous dialogue that elevates this fast paced novel to a higher level of fiction writing. Should most definitely be a movie! You won't be disappointed.
