The Final Silence by Stuart Neville

Posted for reader Kaye:

This story is set in Belfast, Northern Ireland and is the main reason I chose this book. I wish the author had spent more time writing a description of the countryside and scenery, setting a scene for his story.

A family inherits a house when the mother's estranged brother dies. The job of clearing out the home falls to the daughter in the family. In the process of clearing out the house, she finds pictures of the uncle, her father, and another who belonged to a paramilitary organization decades before.

She also finds evidence that the uncle might be a serial murderer. She summons her parents and they don't want her to report it to the police, as it might ruin her politician father's career. She seeks advice of an old friend. There is another murder, some of the evidence disappears, and the friend is brought in for questioning.

This book is a quick read and it did hold my interest to the end.

Final Silence is due out October 28, 2014.
