Book Description

Known for her emotional and compelling stories of love and family comes a romantic and suspenseful adventure from #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Barbara Freethy

* Silent Fall is the second book in the Sanders Brothers Duo (Silent Run is the first book). The heroes are brothers and the books are loosely connected but can also be read on their own.

Dylan Sanders is attending a wedding in the mountains when his trip takes a terrible turn. A former lover appears out of nowhere, demands a private conversation, and lures him into the woods, then leaves him there, drugged and disoriented. The next morning, the woman has disappeared, and Dylan is accused of her murder.

Catherine Hilliard, a beautiful psychic haunted by her own dark past, is reluctant to offer up her cryptic visions to help skeptical Dylan figure out what's going on, but she can't leave her best friend's brother-in-law on his own ... or deny the powerful, inexplicable connection between them.

It soon becomes clear that a wily and ruthless mastermind has targeted both of them, with a motive that's very personal. Soon their race to expose the truth is no longer about staying out of jail but about staying alive ...

Fans of Nora Roberts, Karen Robards, Mary Higgins Clark and Tess Gerritsen will enjoy this romantic thriller from award-winning author Barbara Freethy

Reviews:

"This novel was a thrilling read with many twists and turns. Just when you think you have the book figured out the story changes. I loved the surprises in this story and would gladly read another book by this author." The Road to Romance

"A well-written romantic suspense with more twists and turns than a winding road, the relationship developing between Dylan and Catherine forms the glue of the plot. 
Freethy fans will love this latest offering." The Romance Readers Connections

"Ms. Freethy follows her superb SILENT RUN with this excellent sequel. The storyline of a man and woman on the run is absorbing and the pacing is fast and furious. Incorporating a psychic heroine enhances the story and does not overwhelm it with unbelievable elements. The mystery is solved with a chilling conclusion that will shock and surprise readers." Fresh Fiction Reviews

OTHER ROMANTIC SUSPENSE titles by Barbara Freethy include a romantic suspense duo: TAKEN (#1) and PLAYED (#2) as well as standalone novels ALL SHE EVER WANTED, GOLDEN LIES and DON'T SAY A WORD.

From the Back Cover

Dylan Sanders is attending a wedding in the mountains when his trip takes a terrible turn. A former lover appears out of nowhere, demands a private conversation, and lures him into the woods, leaving him drugged and disoriented. The next morning the woman has disappeared, and Dylan is accused of her murder. 


Catherine Hilliard, a beautiful psychic haunted by her own dark past, is reluctant to offer up her cryptic visions to help skeptical Dylan figure out what's going on, but she can't leave her best friend's brother-in-law on his own ... or deny the powerful, inexplicable connection between them. 


With every new clue pointing to Dylan as the murderer, and Catherine now accused of being his accomplice, it becomes clear that a wily and ruthless mastermind has targeted both of them, with a motive that's very personal and utterly brutal. Soon their race to expose the truth is no longer about staying out of jail but about staying alive ... and finding the killer before the killer finds them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fall for this winner April 15, 2008
By Amy R.
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Barbara Freethy gives us another exciting romantic suspense novel in Silent Fall which is the followup to Silent Run.

We last met Dylan Sanders, an investigative reporter, in the book Silent Run where he helped his older brother find his girlfriend, Sarah, and their daughter, Caitlyn. Silent Fall begins with Dylan at his brother's wedding to Sarah. He is approached by an informant named Erica that he used in bringing in a senator for the murder of his wife. They take a walk and he begins to get dizzy. Erica has drugged him and he passes out and wakes up the next day not knowing what is going on. Erica is missing, he smells a setup, and he is a person of interest in her disappearance.

His only hope is Sarah's friend, Catherine, who is a psychic and has a connection to Erica as well as to Dylan. She is the only one around that can help him and he doesn't want to disturb his brother who is on his honeymoon. He doesn't really believe in her psychic abilities but is in desperate need of someone who can help solve the mystery of what is actually going on. Who is setting Dylan up? Is it his father who was a bully to him is entire life or the senator who he and Erica helped put away for his wife's murder?

Dylan and Catherine are believeable allies/partners in the journey to the truth. They knew that they had a connection to each other when they first met and along the way they fall in love. They are both wounded souls who don't know how to trust others especially in dating relationships. Catherine has nightmares from her childhood that are locked in her brain and are represented in her dark paintings. Most people see her as crazy due to her psychic abilities. Dylan grew up in a home where his father bullied him and his only ally was his older brother, Jake.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dylan's story April 1, 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Dylan Sanders is at Lake Tahoe, Nevada, when Erica Layton appears and demands a private conversation. Only six weeks prior the pair had spent one night in bed together and worked to put a murderer behind bars. Thinking Erica wants to discuss one of those two events, he follows her into the woods; then Erica leaves him there, drugged and disoriented. When Dylan wakes the next morning, Erica has disappeared, and Dylan is suspected of her murder.

Catherine Hilliard is a lovely psychic plagued with nightmares since a certain horrific night during her childhood. The last thing she wants is to help Dylan with her visions, especially since he does not believe in her abilities, but Catherine has somehow become a conduit and may be his only chance to stay alive in hope of proving his innocence.

***** This story begins with danger and the mad pace is continuous until the very end. I could not help but feel chills as Catherine's haunting past comes forward and I began to understand the true horror. My opinion, in a single word... SUPERB! *****

4.0 out of 5 stars SILENTLY AMAZED February 24, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
In the Sanders Brothers Series, I like this book better. This one was more exciting and more mind boggling as to who their enemies were.

Dylan's character, is more desirable, since, he did not want to be attached to anyone or to be part of a family, that makes him, sort of "hard to get". While Catherine, is the most beautiful psychic I have ever imagined. The committment of solving the mystery threw these two together, making the adventure amazing, nail-biting but full of pre-loving moments for the couple.

I rate this 4, because I do not like the way it ended so sudden. While the author had swayed the story to a different ending, it suddenly made an unexpected turn that was not at all convincing. Clues aren't too many to lead Dylan and Catherine to the real killer. They were always trapped whenever they get clues.

The adventure was AMAZING but the story did not end very nicely, however, Dylan and Catherine ended up together, romance, did turn up great.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent suspense thriller April 2, 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
At Woodlake Mountain Lodge in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, investigative reporter Dylan Saunders attends his brother Jake's "second" wedding with Sarah. Also there is a former lover Erica Layton, who once provided the journalist with volatile information. She asks Dylan to sneak away with her into the nearby woods, which he does.

When he awakens in the morning, he is confused by last night's events especially when he concludes he was drugged. He also is the prime suspect in the apparent disappearance of Erica. A wedding guest of the bride psychic Catherine Hilliard had a vision involving danger to Dylan and though she would prefer to stay out as she grasps the peril to herself, Catherine investigates trusting on her visions to guide her.

Following up on the suspense thriller SILENT RUN, Jake's sibling takes center stage as he finds himself in a major mess with the only hope being the stunning psychic as Dylan wants to keep Jake, Sarah, and his eighteen month old niece out of the fiasco if possible. The story line is fast-paced and filled with action with a touch of the paranormal. Dylan is fabulous as a man in peril and his reluctant rescuer Sarah's best friend is terrific. Although Dylan plays a major support role in SILENT RUN, Barbara Freethy's excellent sequel can stand alone.
