Publisher's Summary

The nursery rhyme was wrong. Words can hurt you.

Ambitious, 20-something FBI Special Agent Jade Harrington cuts her vacation short to investigate the murder of a conservative radio personality only to discover that he may be the victim of a serial killer. Whitney Fairchild, the elegant and charismatic Democratic senator from Missouri, campaigns in a cutthroat race for president of the United States. Cole Brennan, the most popular conservative talk-show host in the nation, battles nightly to save his country and help the incumbent Republican president maintain his "inner conservative" to win re-election.

The lives of Jade, Whitney, Cole, and the killer - who has an agenda of his own - are on a collision course. That course will not just impact them each in ways they could never have foreseen, but also the future of the United States of America. Amidst a backdrop of contemporary power politics driven by the influence of talk radio and social media, Don't Speak thrills even as it explores many of the complex issues facing Americans today.

Way too political

Ok storyline but the politics eclipsed the plot. Didn’t hate it but wouldn’t seek the author out again.

Too much politics not enough mystery

Sorry - I was hoping for a good book. The author used this book to state her political views. While I don't disagree with her, I listen to books to escape and this just rang too close to what is going on now. Too much time spent on the political jargon. Not going to listen to the second one. A real disappointment.

Suspense and a surprise ending.

This book was much better than I expected. This is not a book I would typically read and I was pleasantly surprised. The book had a slow burn to it with multiple stories intertwined. The presidential campaign, the female FBI agent and the serial killer. I would recommend this story who enjoy political intrigue.
