When a sexy young lawyer’s boyfriend, a high-profile celebrity, is charged with murdering the flamboyant wife of California’s governor, she will go to any lengths to prove his innocence. Rita Spencer finds herself, though, pitted against some very powerful people in The Conspiracy of Silence by Augustine Sam, and when she discovers that the dead woman was a fake, she finds herself in the crosshairs of people who will do anything to protect certain deadly secrets.
A gutsy, gritty novel that exposes Hollywood’s less than glamorous underside, and reveals what really goes on in DC’s corridors of power. With the exception of a few odd indentations in the e-Book version, which I received a free copy of in exchange for my unbiased review, there’s really little not to like about this novel. It starts on a pretty high note, and screams its way to a most satisfying climax.
I give it four stars.
