Two unsolved murders, a killer or killers still at large, and David Rizzo was still missing. And though the murders were grotesque and baffling, local interest peaked and then fell away with the first melt of spring… By the time the cherry blossoms blossomed and fell, and the Wallkill River surged into the flood plain, David Rizzo's disappearance and the two unsolved murders had vanished from the local papers and from casual conversation. Any fear of a killer residing nearby dissipated in the balmy, scented air…



In this expanded edition of SAY NOTHING, rookie Private Investigator Alison Jenkins, recently returned from  deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan to her home in Ulster County, NY, teams up with her mentor, PI Margaret Singer, to solve the disappearance of a decorated veteran. Not far into the investigation, the detectives realize that the young man's disappearance is only one of several related crimes committed in their jurisdiction and that the FBI has taken a controlling interest in the case and invoked the Patriot Act. When David's girlfriend and a young Iranian girl are found murdered, the case becomes even more complex. At each turn in the investigation, the sense of danger intensifies. A political thriller, a murder mystery, and a meditation on the futility of war, SAY NOTHING will twist its way into your psyche and not let go.
