Returning home isn't pleasant for reporter Avery Chauvin— but she has little choice. Her father has just committed suicide in an especially violent way, and Avery has to put his affairs in order before she can move on. She's having trouble accepting the facts of his death, however, despite assurances from the sheriff, the coroner and many others in the small town that her father was depressed and acting strangely prior to his death. Something just isn't right, and Avery is compelled to find out what.

That "something"involves two men from Avery's past, a young woman looking for her missing brother and the possibility of a secret society of vigilantes on the loose. Avery is confused and upset— and all too aware that any misstep could be fatal. Who can she trust?

IN SILENCE is a raw, powerful story that will engross fans of true suspense with an ending that is particularly chilling. (Jun., 384 pp., $23.95)
