Waiting on Wednesday: The Silence of Murder

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.

Summary from Amazon:

Seventeen-year-old Hope Long’s life revolves around her brother Jeremy.  So when Jeremy is accused of killing the town’s beloved baseball coach, Hope’s world begins to unravel. Everyone is convinced Jeremy did it, and since he hasn’t spoken a word in 9 years, he’s unable to defend himself.  Their lawyer instructs Hope to convince the jury that Jeremy is insane, but all her life Hope has known that Jeremy’s just different than other people—better, even. As she works to prove his innocence—joined by her best friend T.J. and the sheriff’s son, Chase—Hope uncovers secrets about the murder, the townspeople, her family, and herself. She knows her brother isn’t the murderer.  But as she comes closer to the truth, she’s terrified to find out who is.


The Silence of Murder by Dandi Daley Mackall will be released by Knopf BYR on October 11, 2011.

Forensic psychology. Small town drama. Suspenseful murder investigation. Why wouldn’t you want to read this book? It sounds like a page turner, and I hope it delivers!
