Silencing Sam Publisher's Summary

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.

Everyone focuses on revenge as the motive in the gossip homicide, but Riley discovers the murder might actually have been a preemptive strike by new Channel 3 reporter Clay Burrel, after the gossip columnist stumbled upon evidence that could prove the reporter killed his wife - for ratings.

    A young boy's freak accident leads Riley Spartz to investigate a homicide in the closed religious society of the Amish. No women near the small Minnesota town have been reported missing and because the victim's face is damaged, she can't be identified without the help of a forensic artist. When she finally is recognized as Sarah Yoder, a young Amish woman, the police have difficulty investigating the case because the Amish believe in forgiveness rather than prosecution, and no one in the community is talking.
