NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • She finds lost children—all the while trying to outrun the brutal emotions stemming from a tragedy in her past.
Milla Edge is fueled by an obsession to fill the void in other people’s lives. Traveling to a small village in Mexico on a reliable tip, she begins to uncover the dire fate of countless children who have disappeared in the labyrinth of a sinister baby-smuggling ring. The key to nailing down the organization may rest with an elusive one-eyed man. As Milla’s search for him intensifies, the mission becomes more treacherous. For the ring is part of something far larger and more dangerous, reaching the highest echelons of power. Racing into peril, Milla suddenly finds herself the hunted—in the crosshairs of an invisible, lethal assassin who aims to silence her permanently.
Praise for Cry No More
“Linda Howard is a superbly original storyteller.”—Iris Johansen
“Intense and darkly mesmerizing from beginning to end, this gut-wrenching roller coaster of a book is incredible! The bestselling Howard delivers first-class terror and suspense.”—Romantic Times
“Linda Howard meshes hot sex, emotional impact, and gripping tension.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
The superb opening chapter of Howard's new romantic thriller throws the reader deliciously off balance. Milla Edge lives in Mexico, where her doctor husband, David, is posted. She has just given birth to her first child and is basking in a maternal glow when baby Justin is stolen literally out of her arms, with chilling efficiency. A decade later, Milla is divorced from David and has become the devoted head of an organization called Finders. Hunting down the cabals that carry out these crimes, she combs North America for kidnapped babies, including her own. Her sometimes reckless exploits put her in harm's way and also land her in the path of two very different powerful men. Wealthy businessman True Gallagher contributes generously to Finders and pursues Milla with every donation. The dangerous and elusive Diaz, a mercenary or is he a government agent? provides Milla with the name of Justin's kidnapper, and offers to accompany her on the dangerous journey to his headquarters. Both men have secret personal agendas, and Howard, perhaps unwisely, gets into their heads to reveal them; the story works best when the reader is on the emotional and physical roller-coaster ride with Milla, not a few steps ahead of her. But Howard (Dying to Please; Kill and Tell; etc.) keeps a few surprises up her sleeve and delivers a number of exciting jungle scenes. Best of all is Milla, a complex woman whose struggles will win readers' hearts.
Cry No More
Linda Howard is a master storyteller of romantic suspense. I’ll by any book with her name on it. Enjoy!
This was one of the first books that I read from this author.
This book made me realize several things about kidnaps and how you can count (or not) in other people.
I felt almost every emotion possible while reading this book.
I won’t deny that this book took some tears out.
I have read this book multiple times and will definitely read again in a couple years. It is one of my favorite books. The author writes about a parent’s worst nightmare. It is NOT a light book that you can just read, put it aside, and move on without ever thinking about again. It’s a heavy topic. It pulls at me emotionally and I cry at several moments throughout. Yet I can’t put it down. I highly recommend it.
