Publisher's Summary

One year after witnessing the tragic traffic accident that claimed his beloved wife and unborn child, accountant John Allen Harper seeks to remake his life. When he accepts a position with the Mississippi Choctaw Nation as their cultural liaison, he is tasked with one job: to track down and reclaim the tribe's stolen artifacts dug up from sacred ground and sold on the black market.
John Allen's investigation leads him to crooked publisher Winston Walker, who's using these priceless antiquities to prop himself up after a wealth-wasting divorce. Racing against time, John Allen finds a cache of treasures stolen thirty years ago that may hold the key to an unsolved murder and mysterious disappearance. Along the way, he teams up with FBI agent Emma Haden, who is also investigating Walker and who stirs unexpected feelings in John Allen.
But the desperate Walker won't go quietly, and the closer John Allen gets to the truth and the proof that will put Walker away, the closer he may come to being buried himself.

Fast & Suspenseful - Very Enjoyable!

Bobby Cole always writes fast paced action packed books that grab the reader right from the beginning and don't let go until you've reached the end. This one is no different.
In this book the protagonist (John Allen Harper) is on his way to meet his pregnant wife when he sees her killed in an inevitable car accident and he is helpless to stop it from happening. Of course he blames himself. Following a year of depression he becomes a liaison for the Choctaw nation, a total break from his life before his wife died. His job is to track down stolen artifacts and find out who is selling them. He teams up with an FBI agent (a woman he is attracted to and her to him). There have been murders over these artifacts and another liaison went missing so this is not a job with out danger. John Allen does track down the sellers but they have plans for him as well. And they're not nice. I can't say anymore with out spoiling the book for anyone.
Jeremy Arthur does a great job narrating.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Author Bobby Cole's best novel yet!

I have reviewed Cole's other 4 audio novels, including the three in the Jake Crosby series plus The Rented Mule, here at Audible. With Silent Approach Cole has written a great suspense thriller that moves him into the elite of thriller authors. And he did it without any of the Mississippi redneck humor that he used in his prior novels; however, to maintain the southern flavor the protagonist John Allen Harper is called John Allen. The publisher's summary provides sufficient background which I will not repeat in my review. Jeremy Arthur's narration also gets a solid 5 stars.

This is the first Bobby Cole novel that I give MY HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION. Had I realized it was this good I would not have waited until a month after release to listen to Silent Approach.
