In his review of Silent Fear (A novel inspired by true crimes), author Grady Harp insists the book is “a stunning, grisly mystery that pleads to become a film.”

Harp, who is the Art and Poetry Reviewer for POETS and ARTISTS Magazine  and a bestselling author in his own right, says, “The quality of prose is excellent in this thriller – likely attributable in part to the authors’ experience with creating film both in storyline and acting.”

Excerpts from his review follow:

So often the tenor of a novel is distinctly set in a finely honed Prologue, and that is certainly the case here.

‘…Ever so gradually the hole in the brick wall grew smaller as he laid more bricks. Despite what was at stake, he worked at a leisurely pace, all the while thinking. That was something he did a lot these days. Thinking, that is.

‘The hole was now so small he could hardly see the object he was concealing. Only the deceased’s face was visible, covered by the transparent plastic bag he’d used so effectively to cut off the other’s air supply just thirty minutes earlier.

‘He smiled at the memory of the deceased’s final moments. Those last seconds when the young man had recognised his attacker and realised he was about to die. Beautiful…poetry in motion…slow motion. Oh how he loved the exhilarating, orgasmic-like feelings he’d experienced as the life of another was snuffed out. He willingly embraced them as he relived the moment. It was as if the helpless young man before him was still dying.

‘Studying the deceased now, or what he could still see of him at least, he recalled how he’d laughed uproariously just before death came to his victim. The visuals replayed over and over in his mind. He remembered how the veins in the young man’s eyeballs, face and neck appeared to burst as he was deprived of air, and how fragile he’d looked – like a child being tortured.

‘The icing on the cake had been when he’d used his hands to communicate a final message via sign language. He could still see the look on his victim’s face when, seconds before death came, he realised what was being communicated to him. It was a look of total horror, which was somehow more accentuated when viewed through the transparent plastic bag. That had made this killing even more satisfying.’

It is with the same degree of imaginative intensity that his story is revealed, and as the synopsis describes the plot the book becomes even more inviting – ‘When you can’t hear…death comes silently.’
