Publisher's Summary

A powerful family with dark secrets.  

After personal tragedy, Piper Boone retreats to her childhood home — a secluded mansion for the wealthy Boone family, who are practically American royalty. When catastrophe strikes, her family is put in the spotlight, and the line between victim and suspect gets blurred. A forensic artist with his own haunting past.

Tucker Landry is drawn to Piper in the midst of the trauma, but the connections being made to her family might prove to be their undoing. With a hurricane beating down on the private island, there isn’t much time to find answers.

The truth will determine whether she lives or dies. 

Praise for Relative Silence:

“Danger and drama abide in this tale that takes a walk on the perilous side. With a flair for the macabre, the story will linger in your head long after the last page.” (Steve Berry, New York Times best-selling author)

“One of the most engrossing suspense novels I’ve read in a long time. Pitch-perfect pacing and characterization along with Parks’s knowledgeable hand with forensics kept me on the edge of my seat.” (Colleen Coble, USA TODAY best-selling author)

“The perfect beach read! Relative Silence is an expert mix of family drama and slow-burning thriller, leavened with Parks’ trademark humor. You’ll be pulling for Piper and Tucker as the story builds toward a hurricane-force climax.” (Rick Acker, best-selling author)

“With skill and her ever-present wit, Carrie Stuart Parks has arranged puzzle pieces and woven story threads into an engaging and quick-moving read with tantalizing questions, quirky characters, and...oh yes, some well-placed fictional curve balls along the way. Enjoy!” (Frank Peretti, best-selling author, for Relative Silence)

Great mystery plot but reader difficult to follow

This had a great plot with plenty of twists and turns, which kept me guessing to the end. I felt God’s involvement in the characters’ lives was realistically portrayed based on my own personal experiences.
At some points in the book I found it difficult to distinguish between narration, the main character’s own thoughts and dialogue, and also to distinguish between different characters’ voices. This made it hard to follow in sections. The reader was successful in making Mandy’s voice distinct but not so much for others characters. I still enjoyed the story but the reading would have benefitted from a little more dramatic flourish to aid the listener.
