Good suspense -- Silence in the Dark
Part of Patricia Bradley's Silence in the Dark, like the previous books in this series, is set in the small town of Logan Point, Mississippi. This story, though, spans international borders, with a good portion of the action taking place in Mexico. You will find some of the characters to be familiar if you have read the earlier books in the Logan Point series, but there is no problem reading this as a stand-alone book.
Silence in the Dark has a nice share of good suspense running through the story -- plenty to keep me engaged as a reader. It was, though, more repetitive and slower-paced than I would have preferred. All in all, it was a good story, worth the time I invested in reading.
Thanks to Revell Publishing for providing a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
About the Book:
Bailey Adams is running for her life . . . again.
When Bailey Adams left Logan Point two years ago she thought she was getting away from her problems. Running into her ex-fiancé Danny Maxwell was not part of the plan--neither was being chased through the city by the local drug cartel, the Calatrava. Now despite her best efforts, Danny is her only chance of escaping the people chasing her and getting back to Logan Point safely. Can Bailey find the strength to face what's coming? And in the midst of the chaos, can she keep herself from falling in love with her rescuer all over again?
With lean, fast-paced prose that will keep you turning the pages, Patricia Bradley pens a superb story of suspense and second chances.
