The Silenced by Heather Graham takes the reader along on another Krewe assignment. These are FBI agents that get the supernatural cases. This one involves a dead politician, ghosts, a missing friend to a new FBI graduate, and a serial killer.
The setting was wonderful and familiar, as I have visited quite a ...more
Narrator Phil Gigante does an excellent job bringing the various characters to life. His varied cadence and mannerisms gives distinct voices to the characters, both male and female. His vocals emphasizes the emotions and tension of the story.

The plot was stale and I thought obvious. In order to go for a shock factor, you have to introduce the reader to the killers in the book at some point so there is a OMG moment. Well, I knew one of them right away and the other, well, wasn't a big shock. Had to be ...more
I used to love Heather Graham’s books when I first picked one up, but now I find myself liking them less and less. The plots are just so predictable. In this one, it was obvious what was going to happen next, and it almost seemed like a recap of a previous book. The characters were flat too, and difficult to connect with.
Good suspense! Good mystery! Good history! Familiar characters and new ones too. There is a few love scenes.
Meg Murray has just graduated from the FBI training. When she listens to her phone messages she has a strange message from her best friend Lara. Lara is a congressman's media assistant called Meg at 2:00AM that she has to leave town and go back home. Lara never made it.
Meg knows that something is not right. She watches the news and hears about a serial killer. Whose two victims ...more
I have been reading this series out of order…. gee, I’ll bet you’re surprised by that, huh? LOL. But the good thing about reading the Krewe series in this way is knowing that each book is a stand alone and you don’t need to read a previous book to get you up on what’s going on in the series as a whole. I love it when authors are so cognizant of that fact.
This book just pulls you into the action right from the get-go. I had been reading other books at the same time as this one but because ...more
I also felt that her use of the other Krewe members was lacking. Why bring in characters if they add nothing to the story line?
I noticed in the later books ...more
This was the first mystery book in a while that I have read and not guessed the murderer within the first half of the book. I could pretty much work out the plot and who was going to be involved, there ...more
Recommendation: Yes, pick it up for a mystery involving paranormal elements, historical flair and the romantic side of the plot.
The Silenced is the fifteenth book in the Krewe of Hunters series by Heather Graham and published in June of 2015. The plot is centered around Matthew "Matt" Bosworth - FBI agent with the Krewe in Virginia - and Margaret "Meg" Colleen Murray - a recent FBI graduate who is out to find her missing friend.
This forms the first book in the third trilogy within ...more
The victims look enough like ...more
I loved the bond between Meg and Lara, and with Aunt Nancy, which plays an important part in unravelling the mystery of what made Lara try to get out of DC. ...more
Again, Graham is building the Krewe team a bit differently. I continue to hope for how she originally built the first two: 5 or so people and over a series of novels you get to learn about each one fo them and their story.
I still like the perspective from the killer. I was just confused with the way one part was written/how I interpreted it. "Slash" followed the FBI agents, but I don’t quite ...more
i have always wanted to be able to speak to spirits (ghost) and her books draw you into that world as through you were right there living the story. what i also like about her books is that she has a perfect balance on love, hate, murder, and mystery. this story made me think about what and who is really ...more
I liked several of Heather Graham's books, when she used to write historical romances. Now, I see that she has added to her itinerary the mystery books with elements of mystics.
I cannot say that I liked the story, which makes me really sad, because I usually do like the author's style.
I felt detached to the characters, places, happenings and dialogues. Throughout the book, I ...more
