"Silence" is an entertaining psychological thriller with a lively cast of characters, a serpentine plot, and a particularly cold-blooded husband and wife hit team. Sylvie and Paul Turner, who have been married for fifteen years, are sociopaths who kill for money and thrills; their efficiency and meticulous attention to detail have earned them a devoted clientele. However, they are paranoid and tend to find fault with one another; their marriage is, in some ways, more hellish than heavenly. A wealthy and powerful individual has hired the Turners to lure Wendy out of hiding and finish her off. If Jack convinces Wendy to reveal herself, she may very well be the Turners' next victim.
Jack Till has been lonely for a long time. His wife left him after she gave birth to a little girl, Holly, who has Down syndrome.Read more ›
The individual behind the threats to Wendy's life remains a mystery, his lawyer serving as go-between to hire a hit team, a married couple, Paul and Sylvie Turner, whose favorite occupation, other than murder, is dancing, particularly the seductive, demanding moves of the tango. Paul and Sylvie have been watching Till, delighted when he is finally on the move in a cat-and-mouse game that will take them from Las Vegas to northern California, and a series of car rental agencies and hotels, Jack doing his best to elude the pros, but barely a step ahead. Things turn violent sooner than Till expects, the killers thorough and relentless, albeit increasingly frustrated by Jack's dodges.Read more ›
With Perry, you never have to worry about flat writing or endings that seem written in desperation. He's a master craftsman who knows how to build a really great tale with unique characters and outcomes. I buy everyone of his books in hardcover in advance because I know I will read them more than once and loan them to my friends.
I gave this book four stars because, although this is a fine story, I've been there when he's dished sublime. When he's sublime, there's also quirky humor and the ability to get inside the heads of people we'd ordinarily loathe.
I long for him to push the edge, go into some part of reality that he's not so comfortable with and tht I'm not sick of. A protagonist who's an old lady, an updated Miss Marple, or a kid, or an immigrant, someone who's not incredibly fit and lovely. The market is saturated with those. It would take somebody with his skills to pull that off. He's good enough to do stuff that other writers can't.

It's cool to discover a new author you enjoy reading and Perry fits the bill for me. I find his writing to be in the Michael Connelly style. Good stuff!
