Mercy fascinated me from the moment I read her story in "A Merciful Death". The life of a prepper is really interesting and Mercy brings a clean side to it. I found it fascinating how she can never truly breathe easy until she’s near or in her cabin. In "A Merciful Silence" she catches a case where whole families are being murdered and she has to figure out why.
Truman is here along with his cat Simon. I love how involved he gets in his cases, though sometimes that can be dangerous.
Britta and Zara are new characters that gave this book more adventure and brought everything around full circle. Britta has been through alot and anyone else in her position might have just given up, she chose to fight back and I admire her for it.
"A Merciful Silence" kept me on the edge of my seat. I could not stop reading until I found out what happened next. This is a romantic suspense book I truly recommend.
At the end of "Merciful Silence" you get a preview of the book that introduced forensic specialist Dr. Lacey Harper and Dr. Victoria Peres, "Hidden".
Kendra Elliot is also the author of the Bone Secrets and Callahan & McLane series, as well as the Mercy Kilpatrick novels.

In the fourth book of the Wall Street Journal bestselling series, FBI agent Mercy Kilpatrick must unlock the mystery of a mass murder, and the secrets of its silent witness…
For Mercy Kilpatrick, returning to rural Oregon has meant coming to terms with her roots. Raised as a prepper, Mercy is now relying on her survivalist instincts to defend her town from the people the law can’t reach. But this time, an investigation calling up a dark past for her and police chief Truman Daly may be hitting too close to home.
A rainstorm has uncovered the remains of five people—a reprise of the distinctive slaughter of two families twenty years ago. Except the convicted killer is in prison. Is this the case of a sick copycat, or is the wrong man behind bars? One person might have the answer. The lone survivor of the decades-old crimes has returned to town still claiming that she can’t remember a thing about the night she was left for dead. As the search for the truth becomes more dangerous, Mercy fears that the traumatized woman may not have buried her memories at all. She might be keeping them a secret. And there’s a price to be paid for revealing them.
