Overview

Silent Killer by Beverly Barton

In A Town Full Of Secrets

To most people, men like Mark Cantrell are fine, upstanding pillars of the community, completely beyond reproach. But their killer knows better. They are sinners of the worst kind, and they must burn on earth before they burn in hell. . .

Trusting The Wrong Person

Eighteen months after her husband's unsolved murder, Cathy Cantrell has returned to her Alabama home, eager to build a new life for herself and her son. But pieces of her past are everywhere—including Jackson Perdue, the town's deputy sheriff. The spate of recent deaths—each victim burned in the same horrifying manner—leave Jack and Cathy in no doubt that a serial killer is at work, one whose rage grows more vicious each day. . .

Can Be Fatal. . .

Now as a twisted killer moves in for a final, brutal act of vengeance, buried crimes are coming to light once more. And this time, justice will be swift, merciless, and as silent as the grave. . .

Eighteen months ago, Catherine Cantrell observed in horror her well respected spouse Mark die in an inferno on their front porch. Horrified by the arson that killed her spouse, Cathy fled to Birmingham leaving their teenage son Seth with in-laws. Now with the help of her BFF Lorie Hammonds, she returns to her hometown of Dunmore, Alabama to raise Seth; though she knows she will never forget what she saw or heard. The case remains unsolved.---------- However, more clergy are murdered in Dunmore that local police detective Jackson Perdue assumes is tied somehow to Cathy. As his former lover back in high school and knowing he still loves her, he rejects the circumstantial evidence that Catherine is the avenging serial killer as the Cantrell family implies. ------------ This is an exciting action packed romantic suspense that is at its best when Catherine and Jackson share the stage with no one except a corpse even though the underlying premise focuses on the families of religious leaders who try to keep secrets from being revealed. The subplot of Jack and Cathy rekindling their love is done well as he struggles with his heart saying she is innocent, but his upper head and the townsfolk think otherwise. SILENT KILLER is a strong tale that contains too many subplots and townsfolk detracting from the super main theme of an enjoyable regional police procedural romance. ------------ Harriet Klausner

Well-written. I like for the heroines in the novels i read to be younger at least in mid to late twenties. It seems ad to be with your perfect mate finally when you are practically middle-aged. Since still-waters run deep i figured out who the killer was. Just started reading beverly barton and ive liked her stories so far.

I love Beverly Barton. This is book is fablous. It just grabs you and makes you want to know who did it. But the love between Jack and Cathy who are long time lovers. It just moves you. I was really upset to hear that Beverly Barton past away. Her books are always great. Must Likely to die is another awesome book, who she writes with Lisa Jackson and Wendy Stubi. Love the book...There is not one book that I have not liked. I read this second after Dead by midnight which was just wonderful. The sparks between Lorie Hammond and Mike Bickett is just wonderful. He learns to forgive her for her past when he starts off not. Read it... The next one is Dead by morning.
