Patricia Bradley has written a very good mystery-thriller in “Silence in the Dark”. I assumed that there had been a previous novel written about the Adams family of Logan Point since there were allusions to a previous story. That did not bother me overmuch, but whetted my appetite to find out what this story was.
Bailey Adams has volunteered for mission work in Mexico and runs afoul of the local cartel. She is asked by the uncle of one of her students to see his niece safely to her grandparents in the States. However before they can fly out of Mexico, Bailey and Maria are the targets of an attempted kidnapping and have to flee members of the cartel. They are aided by Bailey’s ex-fiancé, Danny Maxwell, who is in Mexico on business, and Angel Guerrera, who seems to be everywhere Maria is looking out for her safety. There are a lot of cat and mouse chases and many different characters who could be involved in the cartel causing Bailey and her family problems. This was a real page-turner where the writing was succinct and well written.
I enjoyed this book very much and will definitely be looking for other novels about this same family. I was kept guessing about who the bad guys were until the very end of the book. I was sent a free print copy of this book from Revell, and NightOwlReviews.com in return for my honest review.
