From the Back Cover
It has been seven years since Lucy was attacked--and almost killed--by an online predator. Today, she is well on her way toward a new life. While waiting to begin her training at the FBI Academy, Lucy's is tireless in her fight against cyber sex crime. Her current mission: to find out who killed a high-priced call girl linked to a powerful Congressman.

Lucy's investigation will take her into an underground network of prostitutes, the chambers of the country's most powerful players, and her own dark past to confront an unknown enemy who's always one step ahead of her. With the help of her P.I. boyfriend Sean Rogan, Lucy must find and protect the only witness who can identify the killer and end the conspiracy, but can the witness be trusted? Lucy will risk everything to expose the truth and ensure justice is served, even if that means putting herself in the line of fire ...

As she waits for the training to begin, Lucy works with her mentor agent Noah Armstrong; investigating the murder of Wendy James a high-priced call girl linked to Congressman Crowley. Lucy's analysis of the murder scene proves correct, but only angers Noah's boss, Supervisory Special Agent Matt Slater who does not want an untrained wannabe in the field. Assigned to a different case, Lucy concludes her investigation of the murders of several call girls and a social worker is linked to the James homicide. With her private investigator boyfriend Seth Rogan helping her, Lucy seeks the connection, Ivy, before the killers murder her too.
The latest Kincaid-Rogan investigation (see Love Me to Death) is an action-packed thriller from the moment the heroine alienates Slater and never slows down until the final confrontation. Lucy has come a long way since her assault as she has strong instincts, but still lacks confidence about her skills that Slater plays on to demoralize her as he thinks she is unworthy. Readers will enjoy Silenced as Lucy struggles to ignore her doubt and follow her gut.
On the front page article, Congressman Alan Crowley was discovered as having an affair with Wendy James, a secretary for a powerful DC lobbying firm. Wendy was jogging in the park when she was murdered. The FBI took over the murder case. When Wendy first interviewed with the FBI related to the Congressman's affair, she had contradicted herself, then requested counsel be present. Wendy had appointment with the FBI for a interview when she was murdered.
The DC Metro police lacked manpower and requested assistance from the FBI in a new murder case. FBI Agent Noah Armstrong and Lucy Kincaid went to the crime scene at a sleazy motel. The victim, a female hooker, was murdered with the same modus operandi as had Wendy James. Lucy overstepped her bounds when she told DC detective Reid that the FBI could handle this case. Lucy thinks there is a connection between the two murders and a serial killer targeting prostitutes.
Senator Jonathon Paxton hired Lucy's boyfriend, Sean Rogan, to investigate who is blackmailing him. If word of this gets out, Lucy will lose her job as an FBI agent and Senator Paxton would go to jail.
Agent Armstrong recommended Lucy for the FBI academy, but is now having second thought about his recommendation. At several crime scenes, Lucy appeared to be having flashbacks from when she was held hostage and raped.
A great Lucy Kincaid series.
Stalked next book in the series due out October 30, 2012. Lucy Kincaid new trainee at the FBI Academy in Quantico.
The book is full of questionable characters - around the story of a group of young girls selling their bodies to survive in D.C. One of the girls is the daughter of a famous evangelist - she ran to escape his repeated rapes. She is trying to protect her younger sister and get her far away from the father.
A scheme the girls got wrapped up in while trying to stay independent starts getting people killed. Lucy sees the connection between the murders and feels empathy for the young prostitutes.
Hard to tell who is a good guy and who is a bad guy, an easy read that seemed just a little too long.
