Silent Killer by Beverly Barton is the 6th book connected to the “Griffin Powell &/or the Powell Agency” romantic suspense series. Publisher: Zebra (Kensington), September 2009
In A Town Full Of Secrets
To most people, men like Mark Cantrell are fine, upstanding pillars of the community, completely beyond reproach. But their killer knows better. They are sinners of the worst kind, and they must burn on earth before they burn in hell. . .
Trusting The Wrong Person
Eighteen months after her husband-s unsolved murder, Cathy Cantrell has returned to her Alabama home, eager to build a new life for herself and her son. But pieces of her past are everywhere-including Jackson Perdue, the town-s deputy sheriff. The spate of recent deaths-each victim burned in the same horrifying manner-leave Jack and Cathy in no doubt that a serial killer is at work, one whose rage grows more vicious each day. . .
Can Be Fatal. . .
Now as a twisted killer moves in for a final, brutal act of vengeance, buried crimes are coming to light once more. And this time, justice will be swift, merciless, and as silent as the grave.
This story had so many twists and turns and red herring that as I sifted through the clues, I still wasn’t sure who the killer was until finally there was one person left who could have committed these crimes. What a thrilling ride that I didn’t want to get off and I look forward to the next book which will clear up some loose ends. My rating: 4.5 stars
