Publisher's Summary

Count your blessings; they can be snatched away in an instant. It is a sentiment Milla Edge knows too well. With an astonishing blend of savvy, instinct, and passion, Milla displays an uncanny gift for finding lost children. When all seems helpless, desperate souls from across the country come to her for hope and results. Driven by an obsessive desire to fill the void in other people's lives, Milla throws herself into every case - all the while trying to outrun the brutal emotions stemming from a horrific tragedy in her past.

Traveling to a small village in Mexico on a reliable tip, Milla begins to uncover the dire fate of countless children who have disappeared over the years in the labyrinth of a sinister baby-smuggling ring. The key to nailing down the organization may rest with an elusive one-eyed man. To find him, Milla joins forces with James Diaz, a suspicious stranger, known as the Tracker, who conceals his own sinister agenda.

As the search intensifies, the mission becomes more treacherous. For the ring is part of something far larger and more dangerous, reaching the highest echelons of power and influence. Caught between growing passion and imminent peril, Milla suddenly finds herself the hunted - in the crosshairs of an invisible, lethal assassin who aims to silence her permanently.

Loved how everything wraps up

STORY (romance/suspense) - The story line of this book is unusual and very good. It is set in the present day, primarily in Mexico and the border town of El Paso, Texas. As the summary suggests, Milla runs a volunteer company which searches for lost children, but the book is really about her obsessive search for her own son and how she struggles with her own life since his kidnapping. Milla and others investigate a baby-smuggling operation in the area, and it is through the investigation that she begins having a romantic relationship. There's a little bit of everything -- violence, action, romance, mystery, betrayal, sadness, happiness -- and the plot isn't so complicated that you can't keep things straight.

Since the summary doesn't give too much away, I won't either, but I will comment how much I loved the ending. Some books end sadly, others abruptly or with cliffhanger endings, and still others with big happy pink bows. This one just ends....right. It is rare for a book to bring me to tears but this one did, until the next second when Audible butted in with that stupid ending blurb and ruined it.

PERFORMANCE - Joyce Bean has a nice voice, and it is age-appropriate for Milla. She is one of very few narrators who is able to do both sexes well, which was a real treat. On the other hand, "Diaz" is a very common Mexican name, and she mispronounces it "Dee Azz" about 300 times.

OVERALL - (Actual overall rating 4.5) I highly recommend this book, but not so much for guys. There's quite a bit of sex and some cursing, but IMHO it's not smutty or overdone.

Best of the best

Impossibly sad, profoundly moving, deeply romantic, and stunning in its intensity. This is a book that stays with you and despite the title, you'll likely shed some tears. Milla and Diaz are easily my favorite characters in contemporary fiction and their story is rich and layered and entirely believable. Linda Howard just keeps getting better and better.

she WOULD find her baby stolen from her arms

Mila Edge had her baby stolen from her arms~while living in Mexico~ 10 years later she has never given up the hunt for the baby stealers~ she starts a foundations called FINDERS who looks for missing children and help find lost people. Mila has a clue~ she blinded the man in one eye who stole her son~ now the "one eyed man" has been spotted. the Mysterious "Tracker" aka James Diaz~ gives Mila the means to "tracking down the one eyed man"...with more info from him~..she finds the BABY STEALERS leads them to friends close to Mila~ the sexy mysterious Diaz is one of Howards more mysterious heros~ as Mila and Diaz bond emotionally and physically~and become very close~ she finally locates her missing son~ This is an excellent audio~ moves along and at the same time the topic of child stealing is very emotional. DIG out the kleenex because this is a sad touching story. excellent READER~ 5 star all the way from reader, story and over all performance one of Linda Howards VERY best.

A woman who keeps to her word

If you could sum up Cry No More in three words, what would they be?

Shocking, riveting, emotional.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Cry No More?

There are so many I can't choose just one.

What about Joyce Bean’s performance did you like?

I thought the reader was excellent. Into the story without going over the top.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Milla is a woman who when she makes a promise she sticks to it. There were a few moments when she could have broke promises but never did. That is a strong woman.

Any additional comments?

I was incredibly compelled by the characters in this book. I loved how different everyone was and what made them click. I know that this will be one that I will read over again.

Just Can't Get Through It

Only one other time have I written a review of a book I have not finished. I felt that I wanted to let others interested in this book know that it is excrutiatingly slow! I may go back to try and finish it in the future, but I gave it two hours to capture my interest (and I usually enjoy this sort of subject matter) and it never did. I would recommend to keep looking for a different choice before purchasing this book. It reads like a bad Lifetime Channel movie.
