Mark Ripley is a detective driven from the force by an explosion that left him with a life-altering disability. He spiraled into a crippling depression, costing him his marriage, his family, and his friendships. To stay afloat, Ripley takes on the role of freelance consultant for the homicide department, working alongside his former friend and partner to solve unusual and heinous crimes.
One evening, Ripley is called out to the scene of a horrific crime, the first in a series of terrifying events involving a serial killer with a penchant for mutilation of the senses.
Can Mark Ripley overcome the trauma of his disability and out-of-control life in time to stop a madman, or will his downward spiral consume him, feeding him to the killer’s savage, psychotic brutality?
The first in a series, Ripples of Silence was written by father-daughter team, Gerry and Jae Mazer, based on a character created by Gerry Mazer.
