When Silence Screams by Mark Edward Langley – Review by Colleen Noyes

When Silence Screams (Book 3 of the Arthur Nakai Mysteries)When Silence Screams by Mark Edward Langley
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When silence screams (The Arthur Nakai Mysteries Book 3) was my first book by Mark Edward Langley and I plan to go back and read the first two. It took about 18-20% of the story to really get into, but it was worth sticking with it. Private Investigator Arthur Nakai sets out to find a missing girl named April, but what he uncovers is so much more than he expected. He is brought into an underground world of terror. The authors writing style for the most part flows very well. A couple of things that hurt with the flow were his odd use of using the first and last name of some characters some times and other times not ie. He often says Glenda James or April Manygoats and it became slightly repetitive. I also noticed he did this mainly with just the female character.

One of the things that I enjoyed most were the small history lessons the author gave involving Native American history. He did a brilliant job of incorporating them into the story in a smooth way that enhanced the story instead of taking away from the story. I found myself very enthralled with each aspect. This story does have some graphic scenes involving being held captive so could be a trigger for some. Overall, this is a story I enjoyed and an author I will add to my must read list. If you like suspense/mystery books with a strong male lead who at the root is a good guy you will love this book.
