What lies beneath the silence? What hides behind a name?
A Note from the Author
This book, setting and characters are dear to me. I love writing about village life and the flawed, very human Roger Demaris. In the Name of Silence is the second mystery featuring Bess Dore and Roger Demaris. Many authors have a favorite character, and, I must confess, Ricky Steele (of the Ricky Steele series) is mine, however, in Roger Demaris I have found what may be a Ricky’s equal.
