David Fingerman, a long-time friend of mine, sent his book to me for my birthday last year but it’s taken me this long to read it. I should have known better! When I finally picked it up, I found this book hard to put down.

A dark and occasionally violent thriller, SILENT KILL is the story of psychotherapy gone wrong and the consequences that result, years later, from that extraordinarily bad therapy. Dr. William Gillespy, the psychiatrist responsible for all that follows, has finally reached th...more
I review lots of suspense/mystery books being a reviewer for Suspense Magazine, and I thought that David Fingerman’s Silent Kill stood up well against most I read. It kept me reading, engaged by the story. It is one of those stories where the reader gets to know things the main characters don’t, but Fingerman never gave it all away.

Written in multiple points of view, sometimes depth of character can be sacrificed. But, I found myself rooting for Louise, Andrew and Elias’s captives just the same,...more

Silent Kill by David Fingerman was an excellent mix of mystery and suspense. From the first page Fingerman holds nothing back.

Louise Miller is a female cop that gets a lot of hassle from her fellow officers. Her brother Andrew is a new cop in a different precinct.

When Mark Lone Bear, her friend and fellow officer turns up missing, Louise puts in all effort to find out what happened to him.

Throughout the investigation, her brother who is getting broken in as a rookie, stumbles upon a development...more
David Fingerman’s Silent Kill is a tightly woven thriller about a female cop on the trail of a psychopath. The story was written with multiple viewpoints, perfect for the genre because it let the reader know more than the characters. The antagonist was absolutely chilling in his disregard for human suffering. He had logic all his own, which made his bizarre thought processes much more frightening. I would have liked a few flashbacks to show how he came to be that way—something more concrete than...more
I like dogs, and Silent Kill has a protagonist who shares my fondness for them; Minneapolis police officer Louise Miller will go far out of her way, and out of her comfort zone, to help a needy dog. Author David Fingerman has created a fascinating protagonist in Louise Miller; independent, resourceful, sympathetic… who just happens to be gay. She lives with a friend who’s not quite so sanguine about adopting a lost Rottweiler. And she has a brother, Andrew, who’s just learning to be recognise hi...more
