A Riveting Ride

5 out of 5 stars

Erik Carter’s latest installment in the Silence Jones series, Muted, proves once again that he knows how to deliver a gripping thriller that keeps readers on the edge of their seats. As a fan who has followed Silence Jones through nine previous adventures, the tenth book is a testament to Carter’s ability to keep the series fresh and exciting.

One of the standout features of Muted is the introduction of new and unique elements into Silence Jones’s world. The inclusion of Silence collaborating with someone adds an intriguing layer to the narrative, injecting freshness into the established dynamics of the series. Carter skillfully weaves this element into the storyline, offering fans a novel experience while staying true to the essence of the Silence Jones universe.

The narration by Gary Bennett deserves special mention. As the voice behind Silence Jones, Bennett once again delivers a stellar performance. Silence’s character is a complex one, and capturing his essence consistently throughout the series is no small feat. However, Bennett rises to the challenge, providing an authentic portrayal that enhances the overall listening experience. I can’t imagine doing the gravelly voice of Silence is easy, and I’m sure I’ve said this before but I feel like the amount of water he probably uses for a Silence Jones book is probably twice as much as any other book.

Muted takes its time to build up momentum, but once it gains speed, there’s no stopping the relentless pace until the very end. The story unfolds seamlessly, with each chapter adding layers of suspense and intrigue. This was a roller coaster ride from beginning to end and the last hour or so was pure adrenaline. I was unable to put the book down as it got closer and closer to the end.

As a devoted fan, I found myself thoroughly enjoying Muted. It’s the kind of book that immerses you in its world, making you forget about the passage of time. The ending, in particular, is a satisfying conclusion to a thrilling ride, leaving readers eager for the next adventure in the Silence Jones series.

Overall, Muted is a must-read for fans of the Silence Jones series and a compelling entry for those new to the pulse-pounding world of Silence Jones. Carter does a good job explaining who Silence was and how he got to be where he was. So in theory you could jump in at any book. But with 10 amazing audiobooks, you’ve got you choices now!

The collaboration of Carter’s storytelling and Bennett’s narration creates an irresistible combination that cements this book as a standout addition to the action thriller genre. Hold on tight as you enter the world of Silence Jones; you won’t be disappointed.
