Summary

From the internationally best-selling author of Watch Your Back comes a suspenseful new novella featuring Assistant State Attorney, Daphne Montgomery, and Baltimore Special Agent, Joseph Carter.

After a traumatic kidnapping, Daphne's boss insists that she take time off. But she refuses to sit on the sidelines when she meets a six-year-old girl who the police call Angel. Angel hasn't spoken a word since they found her four days ago next to a burned out car, frozen with shock, and not far from the bodies of two adults who may or may not have been her parents.

Joseph knows that helping Angel is exactly what Daphne needs right now. But when Daphne gets Angel to talk, a mysterious and chilling crime begins to unravel - one that drives Daphne into the darkest corners of her past as she and Joseph track a ruthless killer.

extremely short

Considering this book was full priced, it is only three chapters long, it is a great story with great characters however extremely disappointing

I should have taken more notice how short it was

What would have made Broken Silence better?

If it had been a longer story

What didn’t you like about Marguerite Gavin’s performance?

the reader was ok.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It could have been a real good book.

Any additional comments?

I will always check that it is a full book in future, I feel it was a bit of a waste of money.

Where's the rest?

It was just getting good and then it was over. Would've been better had it been longer.

She's Spoiled Me

I've been spoiled by Ms Rose's nice long, in-depth novels. This little "shorty" just whet my appetite and kind of aggravated me, to be honest. To be fair, it's an awesome story. I enjoyed what there was of it. I simply wanted more. Yes, I AM that selfish. Didn't I admit at the beginning I''m spoiled? This series is awesome, and less than 2 hours for a story line just makes me want more!!!

It was nice to hear the aftermath.

you always wonder what happened in the few days or weeks when the story ends. So I personally liked this.
