This is an entertaining tale, albeit not if you are claustrophobic. (Well, the one part in the handmade prison.) The not so silent part is that the story is told in such a way that the outcome is never in doubt. The fun is in watching it take place. The characters are well-drawn, and the sense of idealism that prevails is a nice touch in this age of shoot-em ups and explosions.

James W. Hall doesn't rest on his laurels. He keeps on delivering - One great Thorn book after another. This was a clever, fast, fun read. Just what I needed in the cold Northeast winter - Thorn heating things up in Florida!

Silencer is not in the same category with Under Cover of Daylight or Gone wild but it is a great book. You should buy James W. Hall the minute he hits the shelves. One of the most underrated writers of our time.

We all came to love Thorne for his personality, ability to attract trouble, and mostly lifestyle. This latest entry lacks the latter and, perhaps, introduces too many caracters, depriving Thorne is deserved central role. Otherwise very entertaining and suspensful.

Thorn has become a favorite series character of mine. James W. Hall began this series several years before the first of Randy Wayne White's 'Doc Ford' novels. While the 'Doc Ford' novels are perhaps known better, the 'Thorn' series is written better. Anyone who enjoys one series will enjoy the other. This offering is a fast-paced read where Thorn is kidnapped by two ne'er-do-well thugs, characters accurately reflecting the 21st century amoral itinerant criminal-for-hire. Like many criminals of this type they aren't the sharpest tools in the shed and Thorn eventually gets the better of them. But throughout there is an interlocking thread of suspense involving Thorn's lover, friend Sugarman, and a small collection of villains determined to undo a land deal between Thorn and a family patriarch. One of the reasons this novel moves so quickly is that it short, less than 300 pages. There was no sense of anything being missing, with excellent character drawing and a substantial plot. But I could have read this one for another 50 or 100 pages. Note to Hollywood; the brevity of the novel, the fast-moving plot and the expense-friendly settings practically yell 'movie'. Everyone new to the Thorn series should read the first Thorn novel, 'Under Cover of Daylight' as well as 'Hell's Bay' which will bring readers up to date and set up this novel. All of the Thorn novels are worth a read.

In Key Largo, Florida Rusty Stabler offers a deal to her reclusive boyfriend private investigator Thorn who has come into a nice but unexpected inheritance. He appreciate what she proffers as that will environmentally protect 300 square miles from avaricious developers. Part of the consideration would shut down Earl Hammond's Coquina Ranch game-hunting operation as he plans to donate his property to the State to keep it safe from greedy developers. However, soon after Rusty pitches her proposal, someone kills Hammond and Thorn is kidnapped. While the sleuth is struggling to come around and escape, his friend Sugarman searches for him unsuccessfully. Meanwhile professional killers Jonah and Moses Faust are working a serial killer memorabilia deal on the side of their paying gig of abducting Thorn; and Hammond's sons (ex-football star Browning and Miami cop Frisco) want justice and plan to obtain it for their late father. This is an excellent Florida wilderness thriller that grips the audience throughout while also making a strong case for the environment. Thorn is at his best digging his way out of ironically a natural prison of a deep sinkhole while Frisco and Browning's wife Clare investigate the murder and the abduction that they tie together by the protect the land deal; neither realizes the real connection dates back to Depression Era developers in this great suspense thriller.
