DEAD SILENCE: A FOUNDLINGS NOVEL
By Wendy Corsi Staub
Fans will be thrilled; they have waited for this, Book 2 of The Foundlings trilogy, with bated breath. And the author has made sure that readers will love this as much as the first.
In this book, the epitome of a psychological suspense, the twisted mind of The Angler is brought into focus. This is a nightmare of a person who spends his time luring human prey the same way he catches fish. Sometimes, he gets one worth keeping. But most times…they are “thrown away” because they no longer hold any interest.
Investigative genealogist, Amelia Crenshaw Haines has her own dark, troubled past. She has strived to uncover her own “roots” in the world. What she focuses on now is utilizing DNA evidence to help her fellow foundlings uncover their roots. However, things get more than a bit creepy when a stranger comes across her path who is holding on to a very familiar childhood item.
Detective Stockton Barnes works in the NYPD Missing Persons section. He has spent his entire career searching for the lost family members of people who come to him with broken hearts and make out missing persons’ reports. What Stockton stumbles across, however, puts him on a personal quest to locate one woman from his own past that he still, to this day, regrets leaving. The only trouble is, a brutal killer is looking for her as well.
Readers will be on the edge of their seats as they watch Amelia and Barnes uncover frightening things from the past while they attempt to outrace a psychopath who is coming closer each and every day.
Wendy Corsi Staub has penned more than ninety novels, and it always leaves me amazed that with each new book, she finds yet another way to scare readers to their very core.
