After his return from military service, Jackson Perdue forces himself to come back to the town…and woman…he left and face his demons. When he sees Cathy after so long, he is surprised at how quickly old feelings return. His newly acquired job as deputy sheriff takes precedence when a killer surfaces in a horrifying manner, and Jack and Cathy have to navigate through their relationship in the midst of chaos.
Fast-paced and exciting every step of the way, SILENT KILLER is thrilling. Like all great ‘who done its,’ I was kept guessing throughout the story, and just when I thought I had the killer in my sights, something new came along to make me second guess my reasoning. Cathy and Jack’s obvious passion is palpable, and I waited impatiently for them to realize it, too.
Beverly Barton writes remarkable suspense thrillers of which I cannot get enough. I read SILENT KILLER to the exclusion of all else; I could not put it down. While certainly enjoyable on its own, SILENT KILLER is part of a loosely connected series, and readers are given a glimpse into the lives of beloved characters, Griff Powell and his family and friends…a sort of ‘bonus’ and a teaser of things to come.
