    Six years ago, when he was still a detective working for LAPD, Jack Till mentored restaurateur Wendy Harper in the art of disappearing with a new identity before adversaries could kill her. Everyone who knew Wendy assumed she was murdered most believed her boyfriend and Banque Restaurant business partner at the time Eric Fuller killed her as he gained the most with her death. No evidence could prove he committed a homicide until now. Someone has set up an elaborate scheme to frame Eric with Wendy¿s murder.-------------- Jack is hired to track down Wendy and to persuade her to make an appearance that would exonerate her former boyfriend. At the same time, Jack knows that there remain people who want her dead he thinks they framed Eric to force Wendy to surface. He especially is concerned with tango-dancing couple Paul and Sylvie Turner, professional hit persons hired to kill Wendy, but they have an ax to grind with their client for exposing them as assassins rather than dancers. ---------------- Most mystery readers will agree that the latest work from award winning Thomas Perry will be on the short list of the genre¿s best novels of 2007. Jack is terrific as he must follow a trail left by his ¿student¿ while also not leading the killers to her. Exciting and never slowing down until the final dance step, fans will read this terrific gourmet tale in one delightful sitting.------------ Harriet Klausner

    Silence spoke volumes to me!

    This book featured a different storyline and was exciting till the end. I enjoyed the main characters, both good and bad. And the twists and turns keep you really involved. I truly hated for it to end. If you want a different type of thriller...Silence is it!

    The excitement continues with Perry

    The book lived up to the authors reputation. It was exciting, with twists in the plot that kept you wondering right up the the very end! I couldn't put the book down and neither will the next person who purchases this book. Outstanding book. I've loved Perry's book 'I've read and have every one!' I can't wait for the next one to come up. Please hurry Mr. Perry!

    Excellent story

    A very well written suspense/mystery with a very likable protagonist and a couple of very diabolically eccentric killers.

    I'd recommend this if you like Mystery stories.

    Some of it was predictable but I enjoyed it. Plan to look for more Thomas Perry books. A few surprises in store.

    It was OK

    It took awhile to finish. The characters surprised me sometimes; not quite believable. Not sorry I read it, but not sure if it would be a story I would remember to recomend.

    Silence by Thomas Perry

    Good read - enjoyed, however, seemed a little wordy. Probably could have been a lot less pages as not necessary to describe walls and furniture and insignificant things that had nothing to do with plot. But I would read more of his books as he has an interesting plot.
