TV reporter Riley Spartz publicly clashes with local gossip writer Adam Lorenzo and throws a drink in his face after he implies in his newspaper column that she cheated on her dead husband. When the gossip is found shot to death, she is shocked to be charged with murder. Though the victim was widely despised, police seem unwilling to look any further for suspects, and Riley must use her skills to secretly investigate the case before it's too late and she winds up in jail. Everyone focuses on revenge as the motive in the gossip homicide, but Riley discovers the murder might actually have been a preemptive strike by new Channel 3 reporter Clay Burrel, after the gossip columnist stumbled upon evidence that could prove the reporter killed his wife-for ratings.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Julia | 2/20/2014

    " This is my favorite Kramer novel to date. Riley Spartz, a Minnesota based news reporter, finds herself in the midst of a murder investigation, this time as the prime suspect. In the meantime, she tries relentlessly to interest her newsroom boss in what could be the next big sweeps piece, about wind turbines and bats. Riley's parents are a charming addition to this story and other secondary characters that play a big part in Riley's life return as well. "

    " Fun, easy read. While the mystery and other story lines are great, a little tired of the main character being accused of the murders.... Overall though, it was very enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Karen | 2/17/2014

    " Another interesting plot with some revelations about the hidden dangers of wind turbines technology. Riley does some time on the anchor desk, which is fun, but not for her. She continues to butt heads with her bosses, and finds the investigation into Sam's death to be heightened since she is the primary suspect. No white knight rides to her rescue, she does it all herself. Atta girl Riley! "

    " Silencing Sam is an okay book is you are stuck in an airport with a couple of hours to kill that would have been wasted people watching. It wasn't a bad book, it wasn't a good book either. Maybe it's because I never read the first two books in the series, but I just didn't get the feel of a senior investigative journalist out of the title character. The murderer was obvious, and the subplot was ridiculous. If you really feel the need to read this book check it out from the library. "
