Silenced - Allison Brennan Looking for a good twisted plot for your New Year's reading? Allison Brennan's SILENCED was excellent - we know who the perpetrators are, yet she kept me guessing how it was all interrelated until the very end. The heroine Lucy Kincaid is strong, intelligent, vulnerable, and importantly, 3-dimensional as she tries to solve a series of crimes before the killer strikes again. A little light on the romance for my taste, but overall another winner by Brennan. :)
