Merida Falcon is a world-class beauty, a trophy wife who seems to have it all…except she has no voice.
For nine bitter years, Merida lived to serve her wealthy elderly husband, never leaving his side, always doing his bidding…
On his death, Merida vanishes…and reappears in Virtue Falls with a new name, a new look, and a plot to take revenge on the man who loved her, betrayed her and walked away, leaving her silent, abused and bound to an old man's obsession.
But Merida faces challenges. Her school friend Kateri Kwinault is the newly elected sheriff of Virtue Falls. A chance meeting with her former lover intrigues him and brings him on the hunt for her, and meeting him face to face shakes her convictions. Will she have time to discover the truth about the events that occurred nine years ago? For someone in Virtue Falls is stalking women and slashing them…to death.
Danger closes in. Merida's fears build. There’s no one to turn to…no one she dares to trust. And she has to wonder—who is the killer stalking? Is he trying to silence forever THE WOMAN WHO COULDN'T SCREAM?
Mute-but-not-deaf Merida Falcon takes center stage in bestseller Dodd's lively fourth novel set in Virtue Falls, Wash. (after 2016's Because I'm Watching). At the beginning of tourist season in Virtue Falls, the newly opened Good Knight Manor Bed and Breakfast thrums with a diverse and curious guest list, including, besides Merida (who communicates via computer tablet), billionaire Benedict Howard; Dawkins Cipre, an Oxford and WSU literature professor, and his wife, Elsa; and Lilith Palmer, the stepsister of Sheriff Kateri Kwinault. None of whom has descended upon the tiny town (pop. 2,487) for its bucolic serenity or its picturesque canyon views. They all bring weighty personal baggage, ranging from the mildly malicious to pure evil. Merida, who has her own agenda, soon learns that her life is in danger but why and from whom remains unknown. Meanwhile, tension builds and suspicion shifts with breakneck speed, as it's anybody's guess who's behind a sudden rash of grisly murders. Suspense fans will find a lot to like.
