    superb thriller

    She was a FBI agent, happily married to another agent. They had a son and they thought their whole lives were ahead of them until Mark Riggs was killed in a shoot out with Russian Mafioso Viktor Kirov who also died in the incident. Viktor¿s father Oskar swore vengeance on Megan and her son Ryan forcing them to go into the Witness Protection Program. When Oskar and his minions trace them to their new location, Megan and Ryan use their escape plan to leave the program. Three years later, under different names Megan and Ryan feel safe living in a small California town until the day Ryan fails to come home because an unknown assailant thought the child is a millionaire¿s son. Just when Megan thinks thing can¿t get any worse she finds out that Oskar has learned Ryan¿s location and is going to kill him. The frantic mother races the clock in a frantic attempt to reach her son before a determined murderer can carry out his plan of vengeance. <P>Danielle Girard is a superb thriller writer who never disappoints her audience. COLD SILENCE touches on the primal fear of every parent so that readers will finish the book in one sitting to find out the fate of the child. Even though the heroine is a trained agent, she is a mother first and her fear endears her to the audience even more than the typical protagonist. COLD SILENCE will appeal to fans of Barbara Parker and Jeffrey Deaver. <P>Harriet Klausner

    Mystery romance, decent length, plot not original.

    Not a bad read. Almost a copy of an Iris Johannson book published about ten years ago. For readers16 and up. Chick book. Decent length, nicely edited.
