TV reporter Riley Spartz publicly clashes with local gossip writer Adam Lorenzo and throws a drink in his face after he implies in his newspaper column that she cheated on her dead husband. When the gossip is found shot to death, she is shocked to be charged with murder. Though the victim was widely despised, police seem unwilling to look any further for suspects, and Riley must use her skills to secretly investigate the case before it's too late and she winds up in jail.

Riley Spartz is funny, inventive, and fun to follow. I felt like a character in this book and lost track of all time. No spoilers, but is reporting ONLY about ratings? It would seem so. Riley's on the defensive and offensive all at the same time and must prove her innocence before it's too late. I can't wait for the next Spartz novel. SILENCING SAM is top-notch entertainment and Kramer's at the top of her game. Cheers!

I enjoy reading this author's work. Dionne continues her series in fine style. I won't write any spoilers, but I really like her character Phillip Dumas and his role in the book. The writing is tight and the dialogue masterful! I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and hope to see more!

When you're the best at what you do, it's not always easy to walk away. Nathan McBride was retired. The trained Marine sniper and covert CIA operative had put the violence of his former life behind him. But not anymore. A deep-cover FBI agent has disappeared along with one ton of powerful Semtex explosive, enough to unleash a disaster of international proportions. The U.S. government has no choice but to coax Nathan out of retirement.

I thought Dick Hill did a superb job. The characters were believable, the dialogue sharp, and the plot kept me listening. The romantic involvement was low key and tastefully done. It wasn't immediate or forced. I didn't have a problem with it at all. I hope to see more Nathan McBride adventures from this author!
