Review: Silence in the Dark

Silence in the Dark by Patricia Bradleysilenceinthedark
Reviewed by: Pam Graber
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Publisher: Revell
Publication Date: April 19, 2016

Bailey Adams felt called to mission work in Mexico two years ago and broke off her engagement to Danny Maxwell to pursue that call. When Danny travels to Mexico to investigate illegal gun sales from a source at Maxwell Industries to someone in Mexico, he is stunned to find Bailey in the company of his main suspect.

Bailey is preparing to go stateside, taking 4-year-old Maria to visit her grandparents in the US. Joel McDermott is Maria’s uncle and as a good friend is taking them to the airport. After encountering Danny at the restaurant, Bailey takes Maria to the restroom as they prepare to leave. While there, she hears gunfire in the restaurant and, taking Maria, attempts to flee. Instead, the restaurant’s waitress, Sonja, hides them. Once the danger has left the restaurant, Bailey takes Maria and runs, straight into Danny’s arms.

Danny isn’t sure what the connection is between Bailey and the Calatrava cartel but he knows her well enough to know that if they are after her, it’s because of something she knows, not something illegal she’s done. As Danny tries to protect Bailey and her young charge, he receives help from “The Angel of the Streets”. Angel Guerrera has Danny’s back often and connects with little Maria like no one else has been able to do. Can Danny and Angel stay one step ahead of the cartel that seems intent on kidnapping Maria and killing Bailey? Will Bailey realize that trusting Danny will keep her alive?

Silence in the Dark is book 4 in Patricia Bradley’s Logan Point series. I enjoyed “catching up” with characters from some of the previous books in the series but reading the others isn’t required to enjoy this one. Bailey’s back-story is a hard one but it makes her distrust of men understandable. She is strong, self-sufficient, and a mighty warrior for God in an area of Mexico ruled by superstition and drug runners. Unfortunately, all she sees is the little girl who ran when her best friends were murdered and who ran once again when Danny’s love promised happiness (which she didn’t feel she deserved.)

I definitely recommend this book to lovers of romantic suspense. Bradley does it well. With themes of letting go of the past, trusting the trustworthy and following God’s direction – even when it contradicts everything you thought He told you before – this book has a depth that speaks to the hurting and encourages the lost to try God again.

Rated PG: There are some gun battles and nail-biting suspense that would likely be too intense for young children.
