Earl Hammond, the wealthy patriarch of a family of ranchers, lies dead, shot just as he was to donate his Coquina Ranch to the state to preserve it from developers. Spearheading the plan to save this environmental treasure was Thorn, a reluctant heir to a secret family fortune, who now finds himself in terrible danger as well. A pair of deviant brothers, both contract killers, kidnap and imprison him in a sinkhole-a dungeon from which there is no escape. But Frisco Hammond, the dark sheep of the family, is drawn into the investigation of his father's murder and Thorn's disappearance. He suspects the crimes are related. Helping him is his brother's beautiful, troubled wife, Clare. They uncover a trail that leads back to the 1930s, to a cabal of powerful and rich men with a sinister plan. Silencer pits brother against brother and wife against husband in a thriller that proves once again that James W. Hall is "a master of suspense" (Publishers Weekly).

Listener Opinions

    " Hall writes well. I liked it better than some of his "sea" stories. Perhaps not as violent as some of his other works. Thorn doesn't have much of a developed character in this novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by John Snow | 12/24/2013

    " Really enjoy Hall's books, but this was not one of his best. Still a good read just not as good as some of his others. If you are a Carl Hiassen fan there's I think you'd like JWH. "

    " Hall's laid back hero, Thorn, has a newly acquired fortune which puts him in danger with some whacked out killers. Another gripping tale set in a remote corner of Florida. "

    " Hall does not disappoint in this latest Thorn mystery. Those who live in Southwest Florida will see the Coquina Ranch as the real Babcock Ranch. And will Thorn pop "the" question to Rusty?? "
