Overview

Silence by Thomas Perry

Six years ago, Jack Till helped Wendy Harper disappear. But now her ex-boyfriend and former business partner, Eric Fuller, is being framed for her presumed murder in an effort to smoke her out, and Till must find her before tango-dancing assassins Paul and Sylvie Turner do.

The Turners are merely hired to do a job, though, and prefer to remain anonymous. When they find that a middleman has let the true employer know their identities, finishing the job is no longer enough. Their fee just went up.

Full of masterful plotting and unnerving psychological insight, Silence is a mesmerizing thrill ride.

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

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!

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 twists and turns in the story makes it so much fun. But for me the icing on the cake was Paul and Sylvie Turner. It's not normal when you find yourself drawn in by the antagonists of the story. When they say opposites attract, they weren't kidding. I almost wish for a book following them after the events in this story.

There seemed to be too much retelling of the past. The story stalled out several times due to this.

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

Some of it was predictable but I enjoyed it. Plan to look for more Thomas Perry books. A few surprises in store.
Renee Norlund More than 1 year ago
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.
