Silence almost golden

Thomas Perry, the creator of the Jane Whitfield series pulls a switch, and with another stolid character...Grizzled Ex Cop with gimmicky crosses to bear...has to find a someone he helped disappear. Mayhem ensues. Body count rises, reader is taken on a road trip along California's Highway 101. Nice scenery.

Now the problem: if you are Tantor Media, and you are having an actor narrate a book which takes place in California, with important sequences taking place in Los Angeles, would it be too much to ask the actor to at least learn how to pronounce place names which have made it into the general lexicon. Streets like La Cienega and Sepulveda are mentioned on TV all the time. In a pinch, I understand Los Angeles has actors who do good narrations and know how to pronounce local street names.

And yeah...Simi Valley is not pronounced SEMI.

Problems like this occur thruout the reading, and detract from...er...the authenticity of the mileu Perry spent a lot of time creating. Because...yeah...he is an LA writer.

Remarkable talent, impeccably read.

It is almost impossible to say enough good things about Thomas Perry. Silence is just one of his amazing accomplishments. His Butcher Boy series set the bar very high; and yet, he has written a number of stand-alone books which are just as enjoyable and just as thrilling. Silence is about a woman named Wendy Harper. Jack Till, a retired cop and now private detective, teaches Wendy how to completely disappear. His methods are very thorough and very clever. The plot thickens when Wendy's old partner, Eric ( they had run a very successful restaurant in LA named Banque) is on trial for her murder. Till tries to convince the DA that Wendy is not really dead. Like Perry's other books, this plot is so inventive that it allows the author to take us down a number of pathways. We get to meet a psychopathic couple named Paul and Sylvie. I won't spoil the rest for you. Michael Kramer is the perfect reader of these books, his voice driving the plot, picking up the pace to the point at which your heart is pounding by the end. Mr. Perry has used his skills to write about a dozen of these, and each is as outstanding as any of the others. The Butcher's Boy series is a good place to start. It is about thirty years old, but it shines as if Mr. Perry had written it six months ago. Give yourself a treat. If you are a fan of thrillers, as I obviously am, you will find no greater master of the genre.
