Desperate to find answers, Dicey and Gale turn to the artwork the young woman left behind. Her provocative and disturbing paintings give voice to the tortured past she could not confess in life. But was her past so dark that she preferred death over life?
What if the young artist knew that someone she loved was in danger? Perhaps then she would speak out-even if it meant forfeiting her life at the hands of a killer. As Dicey and Gale dig deeper into the mystery of the girl's death, they find disturbing connections within their own lives. As they seek to give voice to their dead friend, the women must first face their own fears and prejudices to finally uncover the murderer. Will the best friends untangle the tragedy before death strikes again, but this time much closer to home?
Draped in wit and irony, The Marriage of Silence and Sin is a riveting, cautionary tale that explores the intermingling of human experiences, choice and fate in molding the human condition.
"Many of the secrets revealed in The Marriage of Silence and Sin are dark indeed, yet Lyon never wallows in them nor uses them for gratuitous purposes. . . . The characters are vibrant, believable, and relevant to the contemporary world. . . . Lyon's debut novel is well worth reading. She is a writer to watch for in the future." --Janine Stinson, ForeWord Clarion Review.

It made me sad, happy, laugh and scared to death!" -- Mary Joe Karch, Cincinnati
