Last Witness by: Chris Merritt @bookouture @DrCJMerritt



What if you made one mistake and it came back to kill you? 

Detective Zac Boateng’s old friend, Troy McEwen, is found dead in his home. The official verdict is suicide. But Boateng believes it was murder. And he thinks he might be next on the killer’s list.

If Troy didn’t take his own life, then who did? As he investigates, Boateng discovers a link to an incident from decades earlier. Mistakes were made that day. Lives were lost and secrets kept. Until now…

As more people who were there on that fateful day are found dead, Boateng knows that the killer is closing in on him…

A tense crime thriller for fans of Lee Child, Mark Billingham and Mark Dawson. Last Witness is a gripping, fast-paced thriller that will have you hooked from the first page.


This was my first Chris Merritt book and I missed the first in the series, but I picked this book up and didn’t feel like anything was missing. This was a fast paced and exciting Cop Thriller.

Detective Zac Boateng loses a good friend, supposedly suicide, but he doesn’t buy it. No one believes him so he must find the truth himself.

I fell into this story and finished it in two days.  After getting through this book so fast I really want to read more. I may have to go back and read the first one. The writing style was quick and to the point without a bunch of extra stuff but still draws you in and excites you.

This was a great Cop Thriller!

A must read.
