Book Review: Shattered Silence

18 Oct

A serial killer is targeting illegal aliens in southern Texas. Texas Ranger Cody Jackson is paired with a local police officer, Liliana Rodriguez, to investigate the murders.

While the case brings Cody and Liliana ever closer, the tension between Americans and Mexican Americans heightens. Fighting their attraction, Cody and Liliana race to discover who is behind the murders and bring peace to the area. What they uncover isn’t what they expected. Will Cody and Liliana’s faith and love be strong enough to survive the storm of violence?




Margaret Daley, an award-winning author of eighty-two books, has been married for over forty years and is a firm believer in romance and love. When she isn’t traveling, she’s writing love stories, often with a suspense thread and corralling her three cats that think they rule her household.

Her latest book is the Christian fiction suspense Shattered Silence, about a series of murders that seem like a hate crime, but things aren’t what they appear.

My Impressions:

A serial killer, a battered wife, a defiant teenager and a smuggling ring — Detective Liliana Rodriguez of the Durango police and Texas Ranger Cody Jackson have their hands full! In Margaret Daly’s newest novel, Shattered Silence, you have all that and more. Fast paced with twists and turns and unforeseen developments, this book will satisfy those who love the romantic suspense genre.

I really liked Daly’s characters, even or maybe especially those who were in supporting roles. They were flawed and struggling to do what’s right. Yet they had a hope and a determination that made the story bring out the positives in man’s behavior against the backdrop of evil and darkness. A message of faith was woven throughout the story, but was never preachy. I think any reader of romantic suspense, Christian or not, would enjoy this book.

The second installment in The Men of The Texas Rangers series, Shattered Silence can be read as a standalone. I like series like this one where settings and themes are continued, but not dependent on other books for the reader to enjoy them.  All in all I would recommend Shattered Silence.
