At the center of FALSE WITNESS are two very different women, each ambitious, tough, successful in her own way.
One is the victim, a beautiful, sexy female television news star and celebrity, raped and savagely mutilated in her own apartment. When she awakens from her coma, she accuses a man so unlikely to have committed the crime that the case becomes an immediate, headline-making sensation.
The other is the Bureau Chief of the D.A.'s office, a brilliant, abrasive young woman who wants to be District Attorney so badly she can almost taste it, and who knows it is within her grasp---if she can get a conviction for the crime...
With her marvelous abilities as a storyteller, Dorothy Uhnak brings to life with breathless excitement the world she knows best---the cops, the lawyers, the D.A.s, the professionals of human tragedy.
Her book makes us feel the stubborn will to win and the heartache of a woman who watches her own passion to succeed cost her the man she loves, the job she covets, and eventually---in a bitter, ironic bombshell of a climax---the culprit himself.
