Longer is better

The action in this novel, and there is plenty, could fill a third of the space Perry takes to tell a layered, rich tale. You think you know most everything, but more gets revealed, and the characters are people you want to know more about. When one of the characters is crazy, the author reveals it by showing us her interior dialog in a convincing and scary way. Surprise revelations right up to the last page, the last sentence. Clearly written and a pleasure to read.Perry hasn't lost a step.

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.
