Publisher's Summary

Five years after the brutal slaying of her husband, software technology executive Jill Shannon is finally ready to take the next step in her life. With her wedding to Phoenix Arizona prosecuting attorney Conner Manning just eight weeks away, the only cloud on Jill's horizon is her future father-in-law's political ambitions for his son. Jill has dark secrets in her past. Secrets she can't afford to have exposed under the relentless lights of a political campaign.
Then the murder of a reporter brings the cops straight to Jill's doorstep. When Phoenix Detective David Shaw turns up at Jill's door asking questions, he has no idea what a lethal Pandora's Box he's just opened. Was the womanizing reporter killed by a jealous husband, or was it related to his drug use? Or did it have something to do with the secret expose the reporter was working on? Jill Shannon looks like a dead-end lead but Shaw can't shake the feeling the beautiful widow has secrets she's not sharing.
As Shaw finds himself drawn deeper into a twisted labyrinth of lies and danger, one thing becomes clear: some vows are made out loud in front of witnesses. But some vows are made in silence, and witnesses can't be left alive.

This is one Devious Lady!!

It's been five years since Jill Shannon's husband Alex was shot and died. He had been in the process of arresting her for murder, but instead protected her from the gunman who broke into their home.
In this book Jill has moved on. She's living in Phoenix, Arizona with her four year old daughter (Lexie) and is now engaged to a prosecutor. Life is looking good for her until another journalist runs into her at a casino. He knew the journalist who drugged and raped her in the previous book and he'd seen video that was posted. Jill meets him in his room and kills him too. But Jill is seen speaking to him on a security camera and questioned. Now she's starting to get scared that her past will catch up to her. The detective (David Shaw) has problems of his own but directs an investigation into Jill's past. In the meanwhile Jill's ex sister in law finds a file hidden in her garage by Alex. Being the woman she is, all Jill needs is some computer time with her software tech skills.
I wasn't sure how Chris Patchell was going to be able to keep this series going but she has certainly done an outstanding job. This book kept me guessing and I never could have predicted how this book would end or the cliffhanger leaving me wanting to know WHAT HAPPENS NEXT????
Emily Cauldwell and Kevin Stillwell do a fantastic job narrating this book.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Chillingly Different

I was given this book for free in return for an honest and unbiased review. However, when I started listening I realised that I needed to start at book one. You need to listen to Deadly Lies first to get the whole story. The series is a great listen although very different from the usual murder/thriller books.

Vow of Silence takes place some five years after the events in Deadly Lies. Jill is doing well in her career and is settled down with her husband to be, Conner and her daughter, Lexi. While not exactly likable, Jill is certainly an intriguing character. She's smart, calculating, and has absolutely no compunction about doing whatever it takes to keep her past buried. She also manages to fit herself into any circle with seemingly little effort. Jill Shannon is the perfect example of what we see when a psychopath is finally caught by police and the friends and acquaintances had no idea. I was a bit baffled about the need for so much of the story being devoted to Conner's cartel case, but it does merge with the story-line. Once again, we have not so much a cliffhanger as an open ended conclusion, and I'll be interested to see where Jill's story goes from here. I'm also curious to see if she crosses paths with the determined David Shaw in the future. While this thriller isn't of the heart-racing variety, when you think about the characters and what happens, the idea that one person's machinations can have this kind of impact on so many is definitely chilling.

I am really looking forward to next installment of the series

Emily Cauldwell , Kevin Stillwell were again outstanding with the delivery of the story
