Review: The Silencer by RC Boldt
Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Valentine PR.
RC Boldt rarely disappoints, and I love how she's focused on more romantic suspense stories with heavier themes to them. That being said, her previous work deserves adoration because those were awesome reads as well. Her latest novel is The Silencer, and it features Kennedy Alexandre, an expert in the field of forensic anthropology and renowned for her work with children who are victims of depraved adults. She's tasked to work with Landon Lattimer, an agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He does everything by the book, and if he knew the truth about Kennedy, he'd learn that the only rules she adheres to are the ones she comes up with. They may both be seeking justice, but she takes things a step further. She speaks for those who can't speak for themselves; and she does it by silencing all those who have wronged the innocent. But for how long?
This book was NOT an easy read, but that doesn't mean that it isn't worth reading. It most definitely was, but I do think that it's important to note that it may not be for everyone, particularly those who have certain triggers. It's difficult to not feel for Kennedy; her past is heartrending, and the sad reality is that countless children have experienced the same. The fact that she's paired with someone from law enforcement and that their connection is something that could jeopardize her mission made for such an intriguing aspect of the story. RC Boldt pulls no punches with this, and while it makes for a heavier and not always comfortable read, it's one that makes you think and isn't merely a means of escape. Boldt's writing pulls you in from the get-go, and all throughout, it felt as if I was on the edge of my seat, waiting to see how everything ends. The Silencer earns five stars.
