Overview

When nobody talks, the stones cry out.

In the searing heat of a Virginia summer, two men fall from a building into the crowd below. One is a white police officer. The other is a young black man with a troubled past. And though hundreds of people stood at the scene, nobody saw what happened. Or did they?

FBI agent and forensic geologist Raleigh Harmon gets called to close the case -- and fast. The FBI wants a swift verdict, with or without the truth. But the witnesses refuse to talk, and Raleigh is forced to rely on her instincts and forensic training. Working her connections with the city's most powerful families, traveling through its seedy underbelly, Raleigh is determined to see justice prevail. But can she close the case before the growing racial unrest rages out of control? Or will her choices ultimately bring down everyone involved -- including Raleigh herself?

Editorial Reviews

Ann McMillan
In an exceptionally skillful debut, Sibella Giorello brings to life forensic geologist Raleigh Harmon, a heroine who is surefooted in grisly crimes scenes but feelign her way along the intertwining paths of life, love, and faith. Readers will follow her eagerly thought this adventure and hope for more to come.
Fred Chappell
The Stones Cry Out holds the reader in its powerful grip until the very last word. Sibella Giorello writes like a seasoned pro. No mystery lover should pass up this novel.
Augusta Trobaugh
Riveting, intelligent, and peopled beautifully with characters I will never forget. Giorello presents a quiet, steady (perhaps even iron-clad!) depiction of people of faith. Beautifully written and a pleasure to read.
Phyllis Theroux
Sibella Giorello writes from the heart without leaving her head behind – which is what makes her writing so strong, so memorable. She's gutsy, funny, meticulous, with an eye for the real story, the profound connections.
