Janet MaslinSilence moves suspensefully from near miss to near miss, with the rival hunters never far from one another in either deductive or geographical terms. That does not make it a terribly eventful book, nor does it yield a compact one. Longer than usual for its genre, Silence takes the richly methodical approach that works so well for Mr. Perry and remains steadily surprising. Only in his determination to create a two-sided story does the book show any strain. Either team, particularly the Turners, could have sustained a book alone.
