Nancy Kopp really knows her stuff. This thriller kept me guessing till the end. A comatose patient in a hospital is mysteriously raped and impregnated and a bulldog female attorney will stop at nothing to find the rapist. Fast-paced page turner. Great dialogue and memorable characters. I hated for the story to end. How about a sequel, Nancy?

I purchased this book as a high school independant reading project. I was very impressed and loved the way Kopp led on her readers to let them believe that someone completely wrong committed the crime. I admit, the idea of the situation was disgusting, but it was a great book to read.

This was my second book of Nancy Kopp. This one was very good. I did not even want to turn on the T.V. the night I started this. You think you have the guilty person all figuered out, and then you learn how wrong you were. I will now be looking forward to any book that has Nancy Kopp on the cover.

This is Ms. Kopp's best work yet...I have enjoyed all three of her books, but this one had me on the edge of my seat from the first chapter. I laughed and cried...my ONLY complaint it that it was over too soon!!

Nancy gets better with each book. Penguin should seriously consider reprinting "Acts & Omissions". All my friends are borrowing my copy.

Great book! Better than Grisham's recent ones. A real page-turner

Just finished Absent Witness and was as impressed with this one as I was with her other two. Like Acts and Omissions and With Intent to Kill, Absent Witness kept my interest and I found it hard to put it down. Keep them coming!!

Kept my interest from the very beginning -- Only problem was that I wanted to read all night & not put it down. Love your style -- Kept me in suspense -- couldn't guess the ending. (The person from Virginia must have been reading someone elses book! )

Ms. Kopp has a great writing style, which makes it easy to forget the time and keep flipping the pages. There is suspense until the very end. She writes convincingly about human emotions.

That Nancy Kopp can get away with furthering the suggestion that white, upper-middle-class young men don't commit rapes is too appalling for words. We get the statement that "The Buckleys are an upstanding, upper-middle-class family. The idea that anyone who knows them would rape a woman in a coma is ludicrous." The nice boyfriend couldn't possibly be suspect because "Todd was one of the two or three top students in the class. He was bright. He was eager to learn. And he was a gentleman." Furthermore, "the young man was a third-year law student at the University of Chicago, and he was from a good family" so he obviously couldn't be a rapist. Sure enough, the rapist ends up being the only person of color in the book (Cuban). The only reason I read this book to the end was because I'm compulsive that way and have to finish a book once I've started it! But I'm so glad I only borrowed a copy from someone else, and didn't actually pay for this appalling book.
