“An ingeniously plotted and tightly written novel of taut psychological suspense” from the New York Times bestselling author of the Butcher’s Boy novels (Nelson DeMille).
Six years ago, private investigator Jack Till helped Wendy Harper disappear. But now her ex-boyfriend and former business partner is being framed for her presumed murder in an effort to smoke her out, and Till must find her before tango-dancing assassins Paul and Sylvie Turner do.
The Turners are merely hired to do a job, though, and prefer to remain anonymous. When they find that a middleman has let the true employer know their identities, finishing the job is no longer enough. Their fee just went up.
Full of masterful plotting and unnerving psychological insight, Silence is a mesmerizing thrill ride.
“Ingenious.”—George Pelecanos
“Brilliant.”—Robert B. Parker
“Mr. Perry spins an elaborate web of cat-and-mouse machinations . . . driven as much by the characters’ fears and neuroses as by ordinary motives . . . Expertly wrought.”—The New York Times
“As good as [Perry] gets . . . Silence entertains until the very last page.”—New York Daily News
“Another intelligent, literate thriller . . . As always, Perry excels at the procedural details, keeps up the pace throughout and will have readers guessing until the end.”—Publishers Weekly
