 Noise by Brett Garcia Rose, is a thriller/mystery centering on a deaf character's search for his missing sister. It's short, violent, but ultimately it's about love. Noise was published in June 2014.

Genres: Action, Adventure, Mystery

Synopsis:

The world is an ugly place, and I can tell you now, I fit in just fine.

Lily is the only person Leon ever loved. When she left a suicide note and disappeared into a murky lake ten years ago, she left him alone, drifting through a silent landscape.

Or did she?

A postcard in her handwriting pulls Leon to the winter-cold concrete heart of New York City. What he discovers unleashes a deadly rage that has no sound.

A grisly trail of clues leads to The Bear, the sadistic Russian crime lord who traffics in human flesh. The police—some corrupt, some merely compromised—are of little help. They don’t like Leon’s methods, or the mess he leaves in his wake.

Leon is deaf, but no sane person would ever call him disabled. He survived as a child on the merciless streets of Nigeria. He misses nothing. He feels no remorse. The only direction he’s ever known is forward.

He will not stop until he knows.

Where is Lily?

Excerpt:
Twenty-Eight
The sounds I cannot hear: The whistle of the hammer as it arcs through the air. The wailing of pain and the begging of The Bear.The dripping of blood from thawing meat onto the wet concrete floor.The beautifully crude threats.

Title and Author: Mercy by B.J. Daniels
Print Length: 352 Pages
Series: Beartooth Montana
Publication Date: Harlequin HQN (August 26, 2014)
Genre: Romantic Suspense, Western Romance, Series

Book Review:
U.S. Marshall Rourke Kincaid is sure that there is more to the cols case of the unsolved murders that happened in various towns in the month of October every year till two years ago. Sure about his instincts but not supported by his office, he goes rogue and undercover and is led to the remote, isolated and wild town in Beartooth, Montana. A fragile looking, beautiful waitress, Callie Westfield who works in an unassuming cafe in this small and insignificant town is his suspect. While Rourke is left surprised and unsure of Callie, the gory crimes begin again. As if this is not enough, there is something suspicious about Callie. She never remains in one place for long, has only held odd jobs and is seemingly cautious in her attempts to remain unattached.

Is Callie really connected to the grotesque serial murders?
Is she hiding something?
Who is she really and why is there no record of her childhood anywhere?

Mercy is the fifth book in the Beartooth Montana series and another awesome read from the author. I haven't read the previous books in the series so when I got this book to review I was a bit nervous. I was scared of feeling confused and disconnected with the series since I had no idea about the base story but when I started the book, it soon became clear that this is a standalone story and the reader need not be concerned about not having read the previous books!

Ever since I was introduced to B.J. Daniels two years back, she has made her place in my list of favorite authors. All her books are unique and distinctly different from each other. Mercy also fits perfectly in this category.

The plot is expertly conceived and executed. The author admirably uses a feel of the supernatural in this book. There is mystery, suspense, the thrill of a chase, a dark and dooming sense of impending danger, hidden secrets of the past and the excitement of the suggestive supernatural which excites the readers with questions like Can people really see into the future?
Can they read other people's minds?
Can we sense future danger?
Are some places really evil Or are the people who live in it make them so?

The ABC Murders by Agatha Christie

Hercule Poirot is one of the best private detectives one can find. Indeed, his fame seems to have outrun his luck when he receives a rather curious and disturbing letter in the mail. The letter is neatly typed, signed as ABC and challenges Poirot to a contest of wits. It mentions Andover and gives Poirot a date, claiming that a murder is going to take place. Colonel Arthur Hastings, Poirot’s close friend and confidante, brushes this off as the ravings of a madman but Poirot knows better. And surely enough, Alice Ascher is murdered in her shop at Andover. ABC moves methodically and then sends Poirot another letter. This time he lists Bexhill, and like clockwork, the body of Betty Barnard is found lifeless on the mentioned date. The third letter is what unnerves Poirot the most, for the hitherto meticulous murderer has made a mistake. He has misspelled Poirot’s name, and that is a clue in itself for Poirot’s grey cells. Can Poirot catch the ABC murderer in time before he kills right through the entire alphabet or has the little Belgian detective finally found his match?
