NOWHERE TO RUN.
NOWHERE TO HIDE.
Vigilante assassin Silence Jones lives in the dark recesses of the world, but when he’s confronted with a world-famous nemesis, he’s forced to pull himself out of the shadows and into the spotlight.
Seven people die at an eccentric media mogul’s lavish party, and Silence suspects the man has used his celebrity connections to get away with murder. The more Silence investigates, the more deadly secrets he unearths.
As Silence grapples with powerful forces concealing the truth, he finds himself locked in a deadly battle of wits with a brilliant adversary who has deceived his way to the very heights of stardom—and whose ultimate goal is much more sinister than it initially seemed.
The next stand-alone action thriller in the pulse-pounding new series. Enter the world of Silence Jones. Hold on tight....
If you like action heroes with the steely resolve of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher, the calculating will of Gregg Hurwitz’s Orphan X, and the raw power of Mark Greaney’s Gray Man, then you’ll love Silence Jones.
Unlock Before the Storm and start your Silence Jones mission today!
Silence Jones’ name is whispered with fear in the criminal world. He is a ruthless assassin backed by a secret government group. We get to see all sides of Jones, from his painful injuries to the way he mourns the loss of his true love.
Sabrina Day, Elowen’s sister, is convinced that Elowen was murdered at the party of a celebrity and that it was orchestrated by said celebrity. The tragic accident left seven dead. Her research at a Kansas City library has caught the attention of two groups. The Watchers are one of them, and they send Silence Jones, who introduces himself as Jake. He and Sabrina attend another of Chase Andrade’s extravagant events. Things are about to get deadly.
The tale that unfolds will have your heart racing as we are given several perspectives, including those of Chase Andrade. While each of these thrillers can be read in any order, after book one, The Suppressor, it was exciting to see Silence in action, meet his therapist and see him make mistakes. Before the Storm grabbed me from the onset and held me to the last.
Twists, turns, vulnerability and more await you in this latest case. Sabrina ends up being an asset, and I actually liked her a lot.
While the stories can be found in Kindle Unlimited, I highly recommend you listen to the audiobooks narrated by Gary Bennett. He has become the voice of Silence Jones, drawing out the tension, reminding us of his difficulty in speaking and showcasing his inner turmoil.

I love the sound of this! A vigilante assassin sounds like a fantastic main character for a fast paced plot. I will look for the audio!
Terrific review, Kimberly. I like the sound of this series.
This series sounds exciting. I will definitely have to check it out. Great review, Kim.
Thanks Nadene. I have fun with it.
how does Silence communicate with his therapist? I remember he was mute?
Not mute but it is very painful for him to verbal communicate. He is the master of one word replies and short to the point dialogue.
i always thought he was mute! but selectively mute is still mute i guess
OMG where has this series been hiding all my life. Fab review Kim I want this series I love non-hero heroes. Thanks for putting this on my radar
Me too Debbie. I hope you try them.
