    Due to Hurricane Arthur - I've been doing a lot of reading :)

    This was a very good read!

    I'm rating this 3.5 out of 5. This is the first book I've read by Allison Brennan and I enjoyed it. Having not read the first three books in this series, I'm sure I missed some nuances of the characters and their relationships with each other but I don't feel like I missed anything important.

    I'm rating this 3.5 out of 5. This is the first book I've read by Allison Brennan and I enjoyed it. Having not read the first three books in this series, I'm sure I missed some nuances of the characters and their relationships with each other but I don't feel like I missed anything important. I was able to get the gist of the past three books: Lucy was kidnapped and raped seven years ago...she is insecure, distrusting, and suffers from panic attacks because of that experience...her dream is to be a FBI agent but her panic attacks have kept her from being accepted into Quantico up to this point.

    In Silenced, Lucy is three weeks away from entering Quantico. As an analyst, she's allowed to join her mentoring agent on a case (which turns into multiple cases). While this isn't literary fiction type writing, I felt that Brennan did a nice job having her main character connect all the dots without making her seem "super-human" in her intellect and abilities. I do think that fans of the thriller/suspense genre will enjoy this book with all of its twist, turns, and secrets.

    Allison Brennan's Lucy Kincaid series is fabulous. It has the salaciousness of Law and Order: SVU, with a whole lot of action and suspense thrown in, with some romance. And unlike most romantic suspense novels, the relationship is not a one-off, the series follows Lucy Kincaid and her PI boyfriend Sean Rogan, so we get to see the relationship develop over, so far, four books, with more to be read. And perhaps my favorite thing about this series? Lucy Kincaid was a victim in one of Brennan's

    Allison Brennan's Lucy Kincaid series is fabulous. It has the salaciousness of Law and Order: SVU, with a whole lot of action and suspense thrown in, with some romance. And unlike most romantic suspense novels, the relationship is not a one-off, the series follows Lucy Kincaid and her PI boyfriend Sean Rogan, so we get to see the relationship develop over, so far, four books, with more to be read. And perhaps my favorite thing about this series? Lucy Kincaid was a victim in one of Brennan's earlier romantic suspense novels. But by giving her her own series, Brennan doesn't keep her a victim. She moves beyond the trauma, learns, and grows, and becomes a hero herself.

    In this installment we have a congressional scandal, a series of murders, a remorseless killer, some tough but fair FBI agents, along with one who's a jerk, one really good cop, and a mystery that needs unraveling. Lucy and pals save the day, of course, but not before some hair-raising suspense. I'm really, really glad I picked up that first Lucy Kincaid book so many years ago and started this wonderful Allison Brennan journey. Seriously, I always know her books will be good, especially on those days when I just can't figure out what to read next. They are all worthwhile and tie into the Kincaid, Rogan families in some way.

    Quite the Thriller. I really enjoyed this edition of Lucy Kincaid and eventually her sister in law Special Agent Kate helping some targeted prostitutes. I am still a little fuzzy about the whole Senator involvement but that is probably because I find this author's weakest link is in her portrayal of the many male characters in her novels.

    In one scene they are generous with their praise and encouragement where Lucy is concerned and in the next they are treating her like she is a five yr old. The

    Quite the Thriller. I really enjoyed this edition of Lucy Kincaid and eventually her sister in law Special Agent Kate helping some targeted prostitutes.

    In one scene they are generous with their praise and encouragement where Lucy is concerned and in the next they are treating her like she is a five yr old. The men are coming across as one dimensional. I would like to like Sean, Lucy's love interest but for every scene that he is caring and kind, there is another scene where he behaves like a hothead. Noah Armstrong, who was a kind and level headed FBI agent in previous books comes across in Silenced as an arrogant a$$hat when he deals with Lucy. When she has done most of the crime solving for the FBI suddenly all is forgiven. It's all quite maddening.

    In spite of this, I still enjoyed this fairly complex story. Brennan does a great job of setting the scenes so the reader is right there and in on the action.

    On to Stalked. I am still catching up on my murder and mayhem quota.

    In Allison Brennan's Silenced, the 4th installment in the Lucy Kincaid romantic suspense series, this storyline was so intense and twisted from start to finish. It all started for Lucy as a analyst for the FBI, when she came to the crime scene of the dead body of Wendy James, the alleged mistress of a well-known politician. But as they work the case, her supervisor gives Lucy a hard time of her position in the case, while she works with her colleague and friend Noah Armstrong. For Ivy Harris,

    In Allison Brennan's Silenced, the 4th installment in the Lucy Kincaid romantic suspense series, this storyline was so intense and twisted from start to finish. It all started for Lucy as a analyst for the FBI, when she came to the crime scene of the dead body of Wendy James, the alleged mistress of a well-known politician. But as they work the case, her supervisor gives Lucy a hard time of her position in the case, while she works with her colleague and friend Noah Armstrong. For Ivy Harris, aka Hannah Edmunds, she had escaped the clutches from her evil father and took her younger sister Sara with her to Washington D.C. Someone's out there looking out for her and wants her dead. Then when another dead body turns up with another grisly message on the corpse, Lucy and the FBI believes it might be connected in one way or another. While she helps the DC Police, they try to connect the dots on who's hunting down these young prostitutes. And at the next crime scene, the people closest to Ivy were also killed in the line of fire. That's when Sean Rogan, Lucy's boyfriend and Noah probe the case to find people connected to them and also to Lucy with Senator Paxton, someone from Lucy's past. When they made a remote connection from Wendy to Ivy to put the pieces together, things get heated when they tried to help Ivy in a car crash. Later on, things turn dicey into an intense standoff with an explosive ending of a life-and-death situation you would never believe.

    3.5 stars.

    Another action-packed and multi-pronged storyline. Sex and politics seem so intertwined these days. :(

    Lucy somehow always ended up in the thick of all the action and pivotal in finding out that little bit of detail to solve the cases!

    What I'm really interested though, is to get more information on Sean's past. So on to the next book.

    P.S. I'm ok with the change in narrator from Ann Marie Lee to Kate Udall. Both are quite good.

  • Mike

    Lucy, waiting to enter the FBI training program in a few weeks, is invited to be an analyst with a field group until then. Despite being intuitive while viewing crime scenes, she has a tendency to overstep her duties.

    Her team is called to a scene in a D.C. park where a high priced escort is found dead. This is just the start of a trail of death tied into extortion, sex, and even incest.

  • Jeff Dickison

    Pretty fair story but this book loses one star because it is filled with too much angst and too many "be still my beating heart" moments. Brennan has improved as a writer but she still puts too much nonsensical romance in what should be a thriller. Don't get me wrong, I like some romance for the characters, but how many times can I read "Sean is my rock" without wanting to take a rock to him.

    SILENCED (pub. 2012) by Allison Brennan is a detective thriller, and part of the Lucy Kincaid series. The opening prologue is what made me have to buy this book. It's a great example of how to make a person want to turn the page.

    I wish the author had continued to give us a longer glimpse of the time period/action within the prologue, because for me, it was the best part of the book.

    The writing is strong but the 'voice' of the writer doesn't come through for me on this one as it has in other

    The writing is strong but the 'voice' of the writer doesn't come through for me on this one as it has in other Brennan novels.

    For me, some of the dialogue was a little too 'on the nose' and the 'detecting' comes across pretty simpleton-like in many parts. This might be because I've read too many detective books.

    The ending was disappointing. I don't like to drop spoilers on current books, so will leave it at I felt like the author was crossing things off her 'readers want closure list' in quick staccato-like strokes, none of which much satisfied, ergo the 3-star rating for this story in spite of the bang-on hot stuff opening.

    I didn't enjoy this as much as I remember liking it the first time around. Not sure if I am burning myself out by doing them back to back or what. I have the next book already so will keep going regardless. Still a fan of the series. 3.5ish stars.

    This is not a standalone and the blurb tells you a lot of what happens but not how it unfolds. Improbable, sure. Enjoyable, yes. Narration was solid.
