Patricia Bradley has written a very good mystery-thriller in “Silence in the Dark”. I assumed that there had been a previous novel written about the Adams family of Logan Point since there were allusions to a previous story. That did not bother me overmuch, but whetted my appetite to find out what this story was.
Bailey Adams has volunteered for mission work in Mexico and runs afoul of the local cartel. She is asked by the uncle of one of her students to escort his niece safely to her grandparents in the States. However, before they can fly out of Mexico, Bailey and Maria are the targets of an attempted kidnapping and have to flee members of the cartel. They are aided by Bailey’s ex-fiancé, Danny Maxwell, who is in Mexico on business, and Angel Guerrera, who seems to be everywhere Maria is, looking out for her safety. There are a lot of cat-and-mouse chases and many different characters who could be involved in the cartel causing Bailey and her family problems. This was a real page-turner where the writing was succinct and well written.
I enjoyed this book very much and will definitely be looking for other novels about this same family. I was kept guessing about who the bad guys were until the very end of the book.
Two years ago, Bailey Adams broke off her engagement to Danny Maxwell and fled Logan Point for the mission field in Chihuahua, Mexico. Now she's about to return home to the States, but there's just one problem. After Bailey meets with the uncle of one of the mission children in the city, she barely escapes a sudden danger. Now she's on the run--she just doesn't know from whom. To make matters worse, people who help her along the way find themselves in danger too--including Danny. Who is after her? Will they ever let up? And in the midst of the chaos, can Bailey keep herself from falling in love with her rescuer all over again?
With lean, fast-paced prose that keeps readers turning the pages, Patricia Bradley pens a superb story of suspense and second chances.
