Another Enjoyable Silence Story

4.25 out of 5 stars

Speechless is the sixth book in the Silence Jones Action Thrillers series, and what a sixth book it was. I do like that Carter spends a few moments talking about how Silence got to be the current version of himself that he is. But going this deep into a series, you’ll have some moments you’ll miss if you haven’t read the other books, but I think Carter does a good job keeping those to a minimum.

This one was all over the place in a good way. Carter kept me guessing, especially with a character as unpredictable as Carla. I also want to give props to Bennett because reading the name “Carla Olmeda” is likely right on the razor’s edge of being a tongue twister. However, I think he nailed the performance, and as always, I love hearing him as Silence. He can pull off that scary/gravely tone without making it hard to listen to.

The focus of Silence in this one is Carla, but along the way, he is given another assignment that seems to distract him numerous times. I wasn’t sure how I would feel about that playing out, but I ended up liking it a lot. It was a change of pace for these books, but having someone there instead of him acting alone made a few of the scenes even more intense.

Overall, I thought that this was another excellent Silence story. A bit different from the other five, but not in any way that made me want to stop reading at all. I want to know all of the cases that Silence gets into.

Book Description:

Kindle Edition Currently Available with Kindle Unlimited




Silence Jones sometimes finds himself in a battle with another assassin, but never before has he confronted one who has lost touch with reality.

As Carla Olmeda slaughters more and more members of Miami’s criminal underworld, the city reaches full hysteria. The longer Silence tracks the deadly assassin, the more he learns about her schizophrenic delusions. He has a decision to make: is Carla aware of her crimes, or is she truly insane?

Silence must figure it out fast. Even more assassins are creeping into Miami, and a bloodbath is ready to erupt.

The next standalone action thriller in the pulse-pounding new 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.
