Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A twisting, suspenseful ride that adds a new and original twist to the legal thriller: a judge, cornered. If you haven’t discovered Brad Parks yet, Say Nothing is your chance. Smart, propulsive storytelling.” William Landay, New York Times bestselling author
“Outstanding—starts with a bang and gets tenser and tenser. Say Nothing shows Parks is a quality writer at the top of his form.” Lee Child, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Truly terrific. Tension throughout and tears at the end. What could be better than that?” Sue Grafton, New York Times bestselling author
“The novel’s final pages are exciting, surprising, and deeply moving.” Washington Post
“With the tension ratcheted up to ten, you’ll churn through pages like your life depends on it. Filled with more twists and turns than a country back road…After this book, I’m going to be a fan for life.” Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star
“The nerve-shredding never lets up for a minute as Parks picks you up by the scruff of the neck, shakes you vigorously, and repeats over and over again till a climax so harrowing that you’ll be shaking with gratitude that it’s finally over.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“From the first lines of the audiobook, listeners are drawn in…Narrator George Newbern gives Sampson a conversational yet compelling voice—at times vulnerable, at times furious but consistently determined. The story is fast paced, engaging, and heartbreaking.” AudioFile
