The rough outlines of the plot were a little too obvious/predictable for "suspense fiction" but the details were interesting enough to keep my going. I enjoyed the main characters and wanted to see them prevail. Some people might be turned off by the heavy-handed Christian messages, which I found a bit distracting from the action.

Very intense book; set in Kansas and historically accurate. I love the twists and turns in the book along with the Gospel of Jesus Christ; a mended relationship with a father; revealing of the past to an estranged daughter; a secret kept by a young man whose heart is opened to Christ!

Good reading.

This book was only put down to make dinner and wash dishes and that was with much reluctance! It brought together Christ., forgiveness, evil, salvation, hope and so much more! Thanks to Ms. Palmer for an exciting read!

I just... can't, with the writing in this book. People don't say these things! Things aren't actually how you are describing them! And I wanted to like it, so much. It was a really interesting story. Can someone please edit this author, so I can read more of her writing?

I enjoyed this one far more than I expected and am now hooked on the author. Very interesting story line that kept me guessing, and good character development.

I am not sure if I can find a happy medium... either too much sex or too much Christianity!!

A little over the top, but I still enjoyed reading A Dangerous Silence. It was a good book to take camping, because it kept me engaged, but didn't demand much from me emotionally.

I enjoyed this book. I so love a good action/mystery with a little bit of a love story on the side. A great enjoyable read nothing to intense.
