Silence Almost Meets His Match

4.5 out of 5 stars

I can’t believe this is the eleventh book in the Silence Jones series. I know I’ve been flying through them because of the excellent writing from Carter and perfect performances by Bennett, but each one of these works so well as a standalone and is even better as part of the whole series. In the latest Jones story, In the Dead of Night, Silence is thrown into a world of a potential suicide cult that turns out to be so much more.

In the Dead of Night was one of those books that as it progressed just kept getting more and more interesting. Carter kept me on the edge of my seat throughout. A few times I wondered if this might be the last book in the series. I don’t want to say I can tell that Jones is winding down, but some of the focus within this one was some self-reflecting from Silence and the offer of taking some time off.

The story has some flashbacks which are rare and then helped set the scenes for later in the book. I found the self-reflection angle worked well for both Silence but also his journey. I won’t spoil it any more than that, so… moving on!

Overall, I thought this one was excellent. This one showed how incredible Silence is at his job but reminded me that he is still human. The combination of these two makes me like him even more.

(The review is officially over, but slight spoiler — so please don’t read if you haven’t read the book) — the personal vendetta for Silence was an excellent plot point but I felt like there maybe should have been some more remorse for how terrible of a person the father was. The things that he did and specifically why he was “punished” for them were things that would’ve made it hard for me personally to have a vendetta. But I guess each person has their own moral compass)

 

Book Description:

In the Dead of Night Erik Carter

BETRAYAL IN THE SHADOWS.
AN ENEMY HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT.

The world of vigilante assassin Silence Jones is rocked to its core when his clandestine organization faces an unprecedented threat—a breach from within. As their most guarded secrets teeter on the edge of exposure, the very existence of his justice-driven group hangs in the balance.

In the midst of this chaos, a scar-faced man emerges, leading an enigmatic self-help group that’s rumored to be a façade for darker motives. As Silence delves into this mystery, he uncovers unsettling ties between the security breach and the charismatic leader’s true intentions.

With time running out, Silence must unravel the truth to tear down a plot orchestrated by an adversary who masks evil with benevolence, threatening not only to destroy Silence’s organization but also to ensnare countless innocent lives.

The next standalone action thriller in the pulse-pounding series. Enter the world of Silence Jones. Hold on tight…

If you like action heroes with the steely resolve of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher, the calculating will of Gregg Hurwitz’s Orphan X, and the raw power of Mark Greaney’s Gray Man, then you’ll love Silence Jones.
