Silence in the Dark by Patricia Bradley

Bailey Adams is used to running away from her problems. First, she runs from her engagement to Danny Maxwell. Then, she runs from Logan Point to Mexico to be a missionary. But when danger strikes in Mexico, Bailey finds herself running yet again, this time from a powerful drug cartel through the streets in Mexico, a treacherous group bent on harming her and her young charge, Maria. She is surprised when the last person she expects to see comes to her rescue. Despite the chaotic turmoil around her, Bailey must make a personal decision to face her fears and use her strength in matters of her heart.

Yet again Patricia Bradley writes a novel full of fast-paced action from the very first page. She manages to balance this with the realistic struggles of her interesting characters and weave among the pages excellent spiritual truths. There were moments when the romance and the ending in the story became a bit too corny for my tastes, but overall there are many twists and turns to satisfy any reader. Although it is not necessary to read the other novels in this series to appreciate this one, the appearance of a few old faces makes it beneficial. I recommend this novel to those who enjoy light contemporary suspense.

I received a copy of this book from Revell Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
