"Silence" is the prequel to Debra Webbs "The Faces of Evil" series featuring Special Agent Jess Harris and Daniel Burnett. Readers of the series say that it's good to now have the full story of their early history together as the books only provide a few brief details.
Jess hasn't been home to Birmingham to visit her sister in years, now she has just wrapped a case that has made her realise just how important her family are to her, so she sets off home for Christmas.
I liked how the story is told, each chapter alternates between Jess' latest case and her trip and arrival home.
With this being such a short story I'm not going to reveal much here, too difficult to avoid spoilers, however, it's a really good dark mystery, quite engrossing. Although not your usual feel good cosy warm and fuzzy Christmas story, there are some lovely heartwarming moments. I could have done without the sex scene really, too explicit for my taste but I am a bit prudish!
Now, all you Americans will know exactly what Publix is, but we don't have them here in Australia or the U.K., and even though it does later become obvious that it's a supermarket, it would be nice if all authors gave a nod to their overseas readers.
What did surprise me though was hearing Jess's accent, as she comes from Birmingham, I was expecting it to be Southern!
Narrated by Alicia Bordon who did a great job, I love it when a narrator is easy to listen to, when the story just flows without distraction.
Happy to listen to more of this narrators work.
