Jack Till must now find the woman he helped disappear six years ago before a tango-dancing assassin couple do. Edgar and Gumshoe Award winner Perry lives in Southern California. Six-city author appearances. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

There are probably only half a dozen suspense writers now alive who can be depended upon to deliver high-voltage shocks, vivid, sympathetic characters and compelling narratives each time they publish. Thomas Perry is one - Stephen KingThomas Perry is, quite simply, brilliant. And as each book comes out he becomes more so. Silence is a case in point. Don't miss it - Robert B. ParkerSilence is ingenious, a runaway-train paced thriller from the devilish Thomas Perry - George Pelecanos

Kramer's smooth, slightly sardonic delivery is a good fit for Perry's latest mixture of dark humor and suspense. The chase thriller focuses on four characters-the hunted (private eye Jack Till and Wendy Harper, a beauty he helped "disappear" from assassins six years before) and the hunters (the bickering, tango-dancing hit team of Paul and Sylvie Turner who've been assigned to wipe out Wendy). Kramer barely alters his reading voice for Till and Wendy, adding a wary flatness for the sleuth and a softer tone of uncertainty for the hapless woman-in-jeopardy. For the Turners, however, he shows a bit more vocal dexterity. Paul has the deep, vaguely hollow sound of a very effective con man, while Sylvie's bogus East Coast socialite drawl loses much of its cool refinement when the going gets rough. The plot is tricky-Wendy is forced from hiding when her former partner is accused of her murder-but as convoluted and complex as it gets, Kramer's well-paced presentation makes every twist register. Simultaneous release with the Harcourt hardcover (Reviews, May 28). (July) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
