Where is Lara Mayhew?
Lara, a congressman's media assistant, suddenly quits her job - and disappears on the way to her Washington, DC, apartment.
Novice FBI agent Meg Murray, a childhood friend of Lara's, gets a message from her that same night, a message that says she's disillusioned and "going home." To Richmond, Virginia. Meg discovers that she never got there. And bodies fitting Lara's description are showing up in nearby rivers.... Could she be the victim of a serial killer?
Meg is assigned to work with special agent Matt Bosworth, a hard-nosed pro in the FBI's unit of paranormal investigators - the Krewe of Hunters. They trace the route Meg and Lara took more than once in the past, visiting battlefields and graveyards from Harpers Ferry to Gettysburg. Places where the dead share their secrets with those who can hear.... As Meg and Matt pursue the possibility of a serial killer, they find themselves in the middle of a political conspiracy. Is there a connection? If so, has Lara been silenced for good? And who - besides each other - can they trust?

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
The Silenced is Book 15 of the Krewe of Hunters series. The "krewe" consists of FBI agents with paranormal abilities such as communicating with the dead and ESP. I'm NOT a fan of the paranormal but I enjoyed this novel. It is my first novel by Heather Graham. The setting is rather mobile covering Washington DC, Richmond, Gettysburg, and Harper's Ferry, WV.
This is a serial murder mystery with four young women being killed. The book also has political intrigue with a member of the US Congress, and potential presidential candidate, being murdered and a congressional staff member and an FBI agent being kidnapped. There is also the necessary relationship between a new female FBI agent and her male partner.
Narration is superb. I may have to listen to another Heather Graham novel!
Not a bad story, but I just can't enjoy it with this narrator. He's not awful, and may be great with another series, but the voices and accents are just wrong. Luke Daniels did the other Krewe of Hunters books and the narration is much easier to listen to.
I've read almost the books in this series, but this one was a struggle to get through. Did not like the narrator at all. Bring back Luke Daniels!! I won't be buying the next in the series because of the narrator. ☹️
I have been reading all of the Krewe of Hunter books, and this one has been a favorite. Steeped in the history of Gettysburg this political thriller kept me guessing. I loved it!
My favorite style of novel are when nature and history become characters in the story. I prefer insight into myself, people and less action.
As others have said, the story was good enough... Actually, compelling. It was fun to hear about the friction between differeing political parties, both present and past. The narrator did well enough - not as many voices, but well enough. Luke Daniels, however, has been the voice(s) of these characters that we've come to know and love. It is always distracting trying to hear the story while adjusting to the new voice. The one thing that bothered me is how the victim was "forgotten" in a way that made me skeptical about her survival. It did come together in the end...
Good narrator. God story. Masked the mastermind very well. I did suspect she was weird but had no idea who the killer was. Dog was nice touch
loved it, great as always, keeps you guessing until the end, keep it up! Awesome
Love the paranormal stories of the crews. Love how they continue with the old characters and add new ones
Ready for the next one.
