Cold Silence
Toni Anderson. Toni Anderson, $12.99 trade paper (370p) ISBN 978-1-988812-88-5
Anderson expertly weaves dangerous criminal investigation with the giddy feeling of finding love in the edge-of-your-seat romantic thriller that launches her Cold Justice—Most Wanted series, a spin-off of her Cold Justice series. Life has been anything but kind to Yasmine Abbott. Plagued by survivor’s guilt after her parents were murdered, she’s spent the last 15 years burying her past, reinventing herself as “Yael Brooks” and seizing a second chance as a white-hat hacker with security firm Cramer, Parker & Gray. FBI Special Agent Shane Livingstone reels after being sidelined from duty by an injury sustained while tracking the sadistic serial killer responsible for the death of his best friend and teammate. The criminal goes by “Evi1Geni-us” on the dark web, and is playing a game of cat and mouse with authorities by leaving a trail of body parts. To catch him, Shane will need Yael’s hacking skills. High stakes, grief, and the need for justice draw Shane and Yael together, igniting a romance—but time is of the essence as Evi1Geni-us draws closer. Anderson expertly builds suspense and balances the action with genuine emotion. This twisty tale will have readers hooked. (Self-published)
