"One author has succeeded to make me feel the way JamesMarshall Smith's writing makes me feel, and that author is James Patterson...Theplot is complex, and the characters are monumentally conceived and masterfullysculpted. James Marshall Smith is the master of suspense, and he knows how touse it to build the tension in readers, playing with time and the unsettlingsense of mystery built around the case. Overall, the story is fast-paced,spiked with surprising turns that will send readers jolting or gasping attimes." --Manhattan Book Review (5 Stars)
"A first-rate medical thriller that establishes new author James Marshall Smith as one of the year's best newcomers...Smith obviously brings a wealth of knowledge to the subject, but he never lets the story get so bogged down in the details that it ceases to entertain. It's not going to far to say that every note rings true. If you like medical thrillers based upon actual science, put Silent Source at the top of your reading queue." --BestThrillers.com
"Smith spins an unsettling story in his stunning debut. Amidan equally stunning and colorful cast, Smith zeroes in on his principalcharacter, Damon Keane. A highly intelligent and talented man with a troubledpast ... Smith's fictional narrative is a balanced mix of engaging dialogue andrich and often time hilarious metaphors that are woven into a flurry ofunpredictable, nail biting, and clock-ticking scenarios ... Silent Source is notonly a top of the line read, but also one that should be on the Silver Screen." -San Francisco Book Review (5 Stars)
"Unlikely heroes with smarts and soul, villains withdimension and resolve, and action to boot, James Marshall Smith nails thescientific action-thriller head on.
