Ummm...So is it just me, or did the beginning of silence not REALLY coincide with the ending of crescendo? At the end of Crescendo PAtch and Nora are talking in her house I believe, when her father shows up and interrupts a tender moment. In the beginning of silence, Hank Millar recalls that he "dragged her out the maintenance shaft at Delphic Amusement Park". I just started the 3rd book after struggling to read the second one. I hope there will be some sort of explanation for this otherwise please save me the trouble of reading the entire book to solve this riddle with no answer in sight.
