Description

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.

Review quote

PRAISE FOR SILENCE Thomas Perry is one hell of a writer. Silence is an ingeniously plotted and tightly written novel of taut psychological suspense. This is catnip for true fans of the mystery/suspense genre.--Nelson DeMille Mr. Perry spins an elaborate web of cat-and-mouse machinations . . . driven as much by the characters' fears and neuroses as by ordinary motives . . . Expertly wrought.--Janet Maslin, The New York Times
