Deb’s Dozen: Missionary Threatened in Mexico, Danger Follows to States, Must Protect Innocent Child

Bailey Adams runs away as a habit. When her engagement to Danny Maxwell ends, she flees Logan Point to be a missionary in Mexico. Patricia Bradley’s Silence in the Dark romantic suspense novel begins with a vignette showing why Bailey runs and then takes us to Mexico where Bailey is a missionary.

Bailey’s running again—threatened by the “priest” in the Mexican village she serves, she runs to another town. Then she and a visiting friend from the village see poppy fields on their way back home, and in turn, the owner of the field spots them. Warned by her friend not to go to the police or to say anything, Bailey heads back to the States.

She’s shepherding a little girl on her way to her grandparents. Surely, Bailey can handle this assignment. Then she sees Danny in the restaurant she is dining in with the child’s uncle, Joel McDermott. And life comes crashing in again.

Why is Danny there? And why is Joel acting so strangely? How do Danny and Joel know each other? Is that the Father Horatio who terrorized her in the village? Bailey’s happy she’ll soon be on a plane and away from all the danger. But the danger’s only beginning.

Bradley then leads us on a twisted trail of drugs and gambling and gun running and corruption—and does so brilliantly. You will be frightened for Bailey, cheering for Danny, and caught up in the puzzles of the events. I couldn’t put the book down and finished the Silence in the Dark in one sitting. Five stars!

Revell, a division of Baker Publishing, gave me a copy of Silence in the Dark, but I was in no way obligated to write a review.
