    "My third try with Perry did the trick"

    I didn't expect to like this, as I am one of the very few that doesn't seem to like the Butcher Boy series. I fell in love with the Ripley series, and that was my standard for a likable conscienceless killer. Ripley had charm, wit and personality. He was articulate and truly likable; whereas the Butcher's Boy was monotone in articulation and personality. But Perry manages to put just enough quirkiness in a murderous couple in Silence to make it truly interesting. There are double and triple crosses, and it is predictably unpredictable. In my opinion, he should do more of this type of complex interaction books with the more developed characterizations of these types of killers.

    "Couldn't stop listening!"

    Thanks to Audible for listing this book for $4.95, and to Richard from San Anselmo for his review! This is one of the better audiobooks I've tried lately, and Kramer is now my favorite American narrator.

    "Dr Phil would love it"

    If i wanted to listen to someone talk about relationships for ten hours, I wouldn't look for books in the thriller/mystery section. This one is clearly mislabelled. Boring, lacking pace, inadequate action of any sort. In short a true waste of time, unless of course you want to explore the nature of relationships between a man and a woman.

    Very clear, strong and engaging

    "Nice job, Kramer"

    I confess I really didn't have high hopes for this book, but as it got going, I found it to be an interesting story line. I didn't realize that many locations were being mispronounced (seems to be a big issue for many reviewers). For me, Michael Kramer is a fantastic narrator of suspense, so I enjoyed it. Even the ending (though sort of dark) was good.

    "Out Standing"

    I really enjoyed this book. It was thrilling, edgy and exciting. I felt like I was in every scene with the characters. Well written, interesting and hoping there is a follow up book.

    "It's gotta be said - Boring Boring Boring"

    Sorry - But this book was a huge dissapontment. I listened to Sleeping Dogs & even though it is not my norm - I thought it was o.k..... But this was a horible turn for the worse. I tried - I really did. Hated it an hour in. Struggled to the end of the first part. Made it to 3/4 of the 2nd part and couldn't take it. The killer team Man/Woman were soooo unprofessional - You would think anyone could run out and start killing people. The female part was especially aweful. The main character has a daughter with Downs Syndrome. I know there are different levels - But if you make that a main issue - Maybe you shouldn't make her one of the smartest mos intuitive people I know... Give her a claw foot or hand if you want a reason for the mom to leave. Glad I only spent a credit - But I would want that back too. I think writing is a very hard skill & I hate writing bad reviews - But somebody's got to be the voice of reason here. So dramatic on the female side of things - Some guys out there might want to check the expiration date on their man cards if they loved this story line...........
