Sometimes, it takes becoming a monster in order to kill one.
The Silencer by RC Boldt is now live!
No one wants to admit that sometimes only evil can extinguish other evil. Each time I drain the life from their bodies, I inch closer to purging my past. Then a by-the-book FBI agent–one as astute as he is handsome–threatens my plans…and what’s left of my heart. He doesn’t believe there are exceptions to breaking the law. That’s where we differ. They once silenced me and countless others, but now I’ve reversed our roles. Because, this time, it’s my turn to be the silencer. **The Silencer is a dark and gritty romantic suspense that deals with sensitive topics which may not be suitable for all readers.

NICUnurse’s Review of The Silencer by RC Boldt
This book will not be for everyone. It deals with the very sensitive topic of sexual abuse, so reader be aware.
I love RC Boldt’s books. They never turn out how I think they will, and that’s a wonderful thing. With that said, I will admit that this book was hard to read. I’ve led a blessed life and have never had to face the horrors of abuse beyond a year with a verbally abusive ex-fiance. That doesn’t even come close to being as horrendous as sexual abuse. From the very first chapter, this book shattered my heart. I cried so many tears for Kennedy in the beginning and during the flashbacks later in the book. I wanted to hurt those that hurt her and help those who helped her. Yet as she grew stronger and grew into the heroine she was, I wanted to cheer for her, even though she walked both sides of the line between law and order and the illegal. The truly heartbreaking thing is, though, is that this story, at least the sex trafficking part, is rooted in the horrific reality of our world today.
I think most of us would agree that there are actions that fall firmly in black and white, especially when we’re talking about toeing the line between right and wrong. But have you ever stopped to consider how far into the gray you’d go for victims who don’t get the justice they deserve? I honestly struggled with this idea throughout the entire book. And props to the author for writing this story in such a way that I could genuinely see it from both sides and internally debated (OK, still am internally debating) what I’d do if Kennedy were a real-life friend of mine. I think that struggle is why I felt so connected to Landon. He’s a lot like me when it comes to our view of law and order. We view it mostly in black and white with very little tolerance for the gray areas. Oh, he toes the line and isn’t afraid to tiptoe over it slightly. But leaping over it that Kennedy did? Yeah. I can’t fault him for struggling with it the way he did.
This book put me through the emotional ringer. It’s beyond angsty and hard to read at times. However, if it’s not a trigger for you, it’s more than worth the read. I had to let it marinate in my head for days before I could even find the words to write this review, and I still don’t feel like I can do it justice. I’ve been a fan of this author for a while, and I’ve loved each book of hers that I’ve read. But I genuinely think she outdid herself with this one.
Again…this book won’t be for everyone. But if you think you can handle it, I think you’ll love it.
NICUnurse’s Rating: I give The Silencer by RC Boldt 5 out of 5 propellers!
