Publisher's Summary

Where is Lara Mayhew?

Lara, a congressman's media assistant, suddenly quits her job - and disappears on the way to her Washington, DC, apartment.

Novice FBI agent Meg Murray, a childhood friend of Lara's, gets a message from her that same night, a message that says she's disillusioned and "going home." To Richmond, Virginia. Meg discovers that she never got there. And bodies fitting Lara's description are showing up in nearby rivers.... Could she be the victim of a serial killer?

Meg is assigned to work with special agent Matt Bosworth, a hard-nosed pro in the FBI's unit of paranormal investigators - the Krewe of Hunters. They trace the route Meg and Lara took more than once in the past, visiting battlefields and graveyards from Harpers Ferry to Gettysburg. Places where the dead share their secrets with those who can hear.... As Meg and Matt pursue the possibility of a serial killer, they find themselves in the middle of a political conspiracy. Is there a connection? If so, has Lara been silenced for good? And who - besides each other - can they trust?

Group of FBI paranormal investigators

The Silenced is Book 15 of the Krewe of Hunters series. The "krewe" consists of FBI agents with paranormal abilities such as communicating with the dead and ESP. I'm NOT a fan of the paranormal but I enjoyed this novel. It is my first novel by Heather Graham. The setting is rather mobile covering Washington DC, Richmond, Gettysburg, and Harper's Ferry, WV.

This is a serial murder mystery with four young women being killed. The book also has political intrigue with a member of the US Congress, and potential presidential candidate, being murdered and a congressional staff member and an FBI agent being kidnapped. There is also the necessary relationship between a new female FBI agent and her male partner.

Narration is superb. I may have to listen to another Heather Graham novel!

Good story, but I'm not a fan of the narrator.

Not a bad story, but I just can't enjoy it with this narrator. He's not awful, and may be great with another series, but the voices and accents are just wrong. Luke Daniels did the other Krewe of Hunters books and the narration is much easier to listen to.

They should have stayed with Luke Daniels as the narrator

Spoiler alert!! Don’t read unless you’ve listened already.
I’m having a hard time staying connected with this story. The narrator just doesn’t do it justice.
Parts of these book are so repetitive. You know the basic story. You know the two will get together after they initially don’t connect.
Plus, there’s no ghosts helping out. What’s up with that? 😁

hard to stay hooked

I am still listening but the narrator is a no go for me...so monotone, which makes it hard to keep my attention.

Excellent story, average narration

One of HG's best stories. I was able to enjoy the story and didn't figure out the killers until the hotel kidnapping. I expected the do some stupid and suffer the kill shot ending but end surprised me. Overall a 3.75 with Phil's narration being the weakest link.

Entertaining Series

This series is entertaining. I think she would benefit from a female narrator. The men chosen to narrate all seem to have only one voice acting option for female characters and that's to simper. It's awful. A female narrator typically does male voices a thousand percent better than a male narrator does female voices and she has an abundance of female characters.

I'm also getting tired of the CONSTANT "Robert E Lee was this great man and the greatest general of our nation's history" business. Was he a good general? Probably. That doesn't change the fact that he was willing to draw down on friends and family alike in order to preserve the state's right to OWN OTHER HUMANS AS LIVESTOCK. There are plenty of other dead well known historical ghosts she can have someone see and wax poetic about. Plenty. I get that she addresses the evil of prejudice and hate but I wish she'd stop with the constant Lee praise.

Otherwise, her plots are engaging and worth a listen.

Funny thing about politics!

It was interesting story especially how it pertains to politics with everything going on today. Very entertaining and good twist and turns.

Not my favorite.

I love the Krewe of Hunters books, but had some issues with this one. There just seemed too many "duh" moments for FBI agents. Maybe I'm nitpicking, but it bothered me. Not bad overall, just some glitches.

The Silence

LIke many have said before, Heather Graham's 'Krew of Hunter' books are a great easy read (or listen) but do not need a lot of thought. That is why I have given only 4*.
The format is : beautiful man meets beautiful woman, they eventually get together and fall in love. In the background, ghosts help with solving murders, as all the Krew of Hunters have second sight or other paranormal skills. Also in the background there is normally an historic setting.

I really enjoy these books. I know what the format is, I know what the outcome will be - they are a reliable, fun read.
