Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Violent and earthy, and completely impossible to put down. BookPage on Pray for Silence
Shades of In Cold Blood . . . Another chilling thriller. People magazine on Pray for Silence
If you like the work of Tana French—and yes, you should—Castillo is every bit as good, and much closer to home. BookReporter.com on Breaking Silence
Exceptionally well-drawn characters and a gripping plot that takes some shocking turns to a heart-pounding conclusion . . . another winner. Booklist (starred review) on Breaking Silence
Written at a thrilling pace, with haunting images, Breaking Silence is a novel worth staying up all night to reach the end. New York Journal of Books on Breaking Silence
Absolutely stunning. . . . A perfectly crafted thriller. Lisa Scottoline on Sworn to Silence
Chilling . . . This series will delight fans of Chelsea Cain and Thomas Harris. USA Today on Sworn to Silence
Adapting her tempo and energy to match the story line, McInerney seamlessly shifts from action to dialogue, tweaking the tension to keep listeners' full attention. Her characterizations, particularly those of the Amish, are clear without being theatrical, and listeners can easily discern individuals' general ages and backgrounds. The gritty story is tempered by Tomasetti and Burkholder's relationship and the description of the Amish culture. AudioFile Magazine
“McInerney, the reader of other series titles, including Sworn to Silence (2009), captures Kate's conflicting emotions…Insights into the Amish community, well-developed characters, and McInerney's compassionate reading elevate this beyond usual crime fare. Booklist
Reader Kathleen McIerney does an excellent job in presenting this gripping tale. Publishers Weekly
The novel is narrated by Kate in the present tense, a stylistic approach that works particularly well in audio format. Kathleen McInerney, who has read the series from its start, treats Kate to an intelligent, slightly brusque, radio-quality voice that loses much of its cool detachment precisely when it should – in moments of feverish romance with State Agent John Tomasetti and during the particularly suspenseful moments when best-laid plans go awry and the bullets fly. Mystery Scene
Engagingly read by Kathleen McInerney Sunday Star Ledger
“Entertaining and suspenseful. The tension between the Amish community and their English neighbors adds an additional level of intrigue to the story. The characters are realistic and convincingly motivated in their actions and choices. Kate’s own poignant experience with Amish life makes the story come alive.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
