When Judith discovers a dead body in the kiln of her pottery store, she's convinced it's the work of her ex-husband in an attempt to cause her trouble. After discussing the incident with members of her Scrabble Club, Judith soon learns that her ex may be off the hook, and that sticks and stones may break bones, but words can definitely get you killed.
This is the second mystery I’ve read by Nancy Springer and like the first one, Silent End kept me entertained from start to finish.
This is a short read but the author did a great job throwing us into the action with the discovery of a body in a kiln. The dialogue is snappy, Judith, the main character, is part quirky, part resourceful business woman, and best of all, amateur sleuth.
I loved the way the story unfolded and how the clues were set out but yet still kept me guessing. If you enjoy mysteries but don’t have time for a full-length novel, Silent End is perfect for you.
