Silence If you love Perry s Jane Whitefield novels, you will like Silence While Silence is not on a par with any of the exceptional Whitefield novels, it is a very good read in its own right Recommended. This could have been a great book, however as with every single mystery novel I ve read written by an older man, this falls into the same bullshit trope of the younger woman falling in love with the older, middle aged guy I m sick of this gross male fantasy being played out in literature, it really needs to stop This book could have flourished, but unfortunately that unnecessary plot device totally ruined it for me. 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 doThe 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 And now they must double cross the man who wants Wendy dead before he can double cross them if their jealousy and cold blooded calculations don t result in a fatal lovers quarrel firstWith masterful plotting and unnerving psychological insight, Perry delivers another mesmerizing thrill ride This was a 4 star mystery thriller in almost every way The characters were excellent Michael Kramer s reading fit the story enhanced it, as usual Their back stories motivations were perfect blended together into a logical chase that culminates perfectly, even wonderfully For all the logic, I wasn t quite sure where it was going the revelations along the way kept me wondering Jack Till is a great MC.I took away a star due to the overuse of silencers They were silent, Hollywood type This was a 4 star mystery thriller in almost every way The characters were excellent Michael Kramer s reading fit the story enhanced it, as usual Their back stories motivations were perfect blended together into a logical chase that culminates perfectly, even wonderfully For all the logic, I wasn t quite sure where it was going the revelations along the way kept me wondering Jack Till is a great MC.I took away a star due to the overuse of silencers They were silent, Hollywood types had to be he even put them on a revolver Yuck He also has 2 identical guns that can be disassembled reassembled plus use different scopes without any need to sight them in Double yuck A taut, well written thriller, typical of the genre.The story involves a former homicide detective who helped a witness disappear six years earlier, vowing that under no circumstances would he ever attempt to find her But such a circumstance does arise, and it is not only the detective who tries to find her, but a professional team of husband and wife hired assassins And so the race is on The protagonist has the distinct advantage of having helped the witness disappear in the first place, A taut, well written thriller, typical of the genre.The story involves a former homicide detective who helped a witness disappear six years earlier, vowing that under no circumstances would he ever attempt to find her But such a circumstance does arise, and it is not only the detective who tries to find her, but a professional team of husband and wife hired assassins And so the race is on The protagonist has the distinct advantage of having helped the witness disappear in the first place, but he trained her well in the art of deception, and the assassins are extremely well trained as well, and know that he will lead them to their prey Worth the read just for the relationship between the married professional assassins.The one sentence in this book really struck home with me, most probably because of my own profession She knew that he had been a homicide detective, and she knew that he had spent a whole career getting people to tell him things that they didn t want to There you have the role of a detective, whether private or law enforcement, reduced to its essence.I have long been a Thomas Perry fan, and have read all of his books I am particularly enad of the Jane Whitefield series, of which this book is not a part.Jane Whitefield is a fascinating character, an expert in helping troubled people disappear A complete identity change requires not only the proper documentation and change in appearance, but rigorous training to eliminate any and all tells, including tone of voice, mannerisms and body language The protagonist herself, a Native American, remains predominantly shrouded in mystery.Disappearing, with all of its familial, cultural, and societal implications, is a recurrent theme in Perry s books, one I must confess I find almost endlessly fascinating and dare I say it appealing Quitting about 25% of the way in The details of the porn and stripping, etc make me want to go take a shower, brush my teeth and gargle Not a fun read.
