THE SILENT BRIDE
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Procedural
September 11 has altered the shape of the world and brought about changes in the way people view each other, and this is especially true in NYC. When a young Orthodox Jewish woman is murdered moments before her wedding, cries of "hate crime" reverberate throughout the city.
The case falls to NYPD Det. April Woo and her lover and colleague, Lt. Mike Sanchez. They can't fathom why anyone would have targeted the unworldly 18-year-old bride, yet all connected with the wedding, from the planner to the dress designer, seem to have agendas of their own.
When another bride is killed, this one at St. Patrick's Cathedral, the heat is turned up to solve this case, fast. Wedding season is in full bloom and fear is running high in this normally "fearless" city. Meanwhile, Mike wants a commitment from April, but her old-style Chinese mother would never accept her marrying a Latino. With her personal life adding pressure to her
Once again, Leslie Glass delivers a fascinating, high-voltage, suspense procedural. The wedding backgrounds are intriguing, as is April's private life. (Jun., 400 pp., $6.99)
