Publisher's Summary

Thirty-four years ago, Violet Sullivan put on her party finery and left for the annual Fourth of July fireworks display. She was never seen again.

In the small California town of Serena Station, tongues wagged. Some said she'd run off with a lover. Some said she was murdered by her husband.

But for the not-quite-seven-year-old daughter Daisy she left behind, Violet's absence has never been explained or forgotten.

Now, 34 years later, she wants the solace of closure.

Don't miss the other titles in the Kinsey Millhone Alphabet Mystery Series.

    "unabridged is the way to go"
    Any additional comments?

    I have been listening to the abridged versions narrated by Judy Kaye for years. Now that they are being offered by Audible with Judy Kaye in unabridged format, it brings so much more to the story. I may even go back and get A-R in unabridged.

    Story
    "Incredibly disappointing book, makes no sense"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who doesn't care if murder mysteries make any sense at all


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sue Grafton again?

    Probably not. I really dislike the way Judy Kaye hesitates between every 2-3 words for no apparent reason. The way she reads is really irritating. Add that to the fact that this book was unbelievably stupid and made no sense at all, and this is a huge disappointment.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Judy Kaye’s performances?

    Not at all. I dislike intensely the way she reads and baseless hesitations.


    What character would you cut from S is for Silence?

    all of them


    Any additional comments?

    don't waste your money!!

    "Good, as expected"

    This was a good Sue Grafton book. I've read all but 1 of them over the years, and found this one to be particularly satisfying. It's what you'd expect from a good Grafton novel, with a little extra thrown in, in my view. I thought the characters were particularly well formed in this book, and enjoyed the relationships that Kinsey formed with the women involved in this small-town mystery.
