This was just a very good book. Excellent story. Unlikable antagonist with a mission I think anyone can relate to if in the same situation (which I wo..Show More »n't spoil). So even though I didn't like him I did find myself wanting him to complete his mission.
I have previously written very positive reviews of all prior books in the McRyan detective series. In Blood Silence Mac McRyan is encouraged by his f..Show More »iance who is on the US president's staff to go back home to Minnesota to help clear Mac's ex-wife of the brutal double murder of her cheating husband and her husband's lover.
This is a complex novel that includes almost a dozen murders spread around Minnesota, North Dakota and Texas. McRyan's life is in near constant danger as he uses his detective skills to work toward a conclusion of the case(s). Johnny Peppers does his usual fine job of narration.
I recommend this book and the entire series to those who like detective mysteries.
