Jude Devine, a FBI agent, has been assigned to an undercover operation in remote Paradox Valley. She assumes the duties of Sheriff's detective for the Montzuma County Sheriff's office. While she is building a case for the FBI, a dead, mutilated woman shows up on her turf. She and her deputy begin an investigation. It leads them to a cult of Mormon polygamists. What follows is a web of secrecy,deception, abuse, and brainwashing.

This book is hard to read in places because it depicts spousal and child abuse in detail. While the descriptions are germane to the story, it remains hard to read.

Beecham carefully develops the characters in this book from petty crook Bobby Lee to Jude Devine. Her descriptions of the people are carefully drawn so the reader comes to care about them all - with the exception, of course, of the cultists who the reader will learn to despise. Her descriptions of this remote area near the Four Corners is beautifully drawn so the reader senses the desolation and the isolation.

This is a procedural at its best. We follow along with Jude as she uncovers each bit of evidence that will lead her to the woman's killer.

The romance is well done. Jude's relationship - or non-relationship - with the local pathologist, Dr. Mercy Westmoreland, begins slowly and builds slowly. By book's end, however, the two women still want different things from each other - resolution of which will undoubtedly take place in a later book in the series.

Over all this is a good read for mystery fans, for romance fans, and for readers who like to learn from their fiction.

Beecham does a wonderful job in reseachering a sensitive topic and blows top off of the LDS and in coubination introduces lesbian lovers who are in high positions who enjoy each other's company in many ways. The book deals with many real issues that are still in exsistance that are not pretty, but the love between the woman softens the difficultes for the reader and the family support of the suvivors of the cult who are not involve gives the reader hope to know that there are people who are willing to help save and assist the survivors of children who have been victims of cults. Excellant start to a wonderful trilogy.

It's good to see Rose Beecham back on the shelves. This is far better than her previous detective series (Amanda Valentine), and that's saying a lot.

This book is one of the rare books that I immediately begin re-reading as soon as I reach the end; it's that good.

Others have described the plot; I'll just add that not only do you learn more about a topic that you really wish weren't true (the plygs) but you have a helluva read.

All I can say to the author is "More!".

Good book, arrived fast

Sorry to end the perfect string of 5-star reviews, folks, but this one just didn't resonate in me for some reason. The plot involving the fundie Mormons was compelling; nothing makes me more furious than abuse of women and children, and it was convincingly depicted. The writing was technically proficient, but not really anything special. I sort of warmed to Jude at times, but never all the way, and I didn't care for Mercy at all, though I liked that she was honest about what she wanted. Adeline was easily my favorite character, but didn't have a big enough role to salvage the book. Greater backstory on Jude, and any at all on Mercy, might have helped, but I doubt it. Expected more.

Really enjoyed this author and found the story one that I wanted to keep coming back to. It was a pretty quick read, but not because it lacked content. The story was well paced and interesting. I am looking forward to continuing on to the next Jude Devine book.

After spending the last few years writing sexy romances as Jennifer Fulton, Fulton aka Rose Beecham has triumphantly returned to penning mysteries. With the award-winning Grave Silence, she mixes facts, surrounding the activities of the Fundamentalist Church of the Latter Day Saints (FLDS), with a riveting murder mystery and crafts a gripping story.

When we first meet Sheriff's Detective Jude Devine, a former FBI agent who has been transferred to a small Colorado town in the Four Corners area, she is unraveling the grisly murder of a young woman left decomposing in a desert wash. The clues to solving this crime take Devine and the reader on an unbelievable journey beyond anything we could have imagined. FLDS is a splinter group not recognized by the Mormon Church that among other things illegally practices polygamy. Beecham deftly weaves a second plot about life on an FLDS ranch into this story. We learn how autocracy and abuse rule the mostly underage girls married to the "master" of the cult, and how silence is used as a survival tool to avoid being punished for disobeying. As the book evolves, these two plots collide forcefully, taking the reader on a compelling adventure with Devine emerging as the silent hero.

After reading this book over eight months ago, this reviewer was haunted by the "facts" of Grave Silence. I wanted to know where the fiction ended, and the truth began. After hearing a talk by Beecham on how she compiled her research and gathered first-hand information about FLDS, I received my answers and was shocked. This is not a book where an author spews her views on religion disguised as a novel. FLDS is a cult that does not adhere to any tenets of any religion. Beecham has done a tremendous amount of in depth research to incorporate these facts into a fictional murder mystery, and the results are an amazing and fascinating book. The writing is tight and fluid. The path to the murder clues grows as the plot moves forward. Beecham strings her readers along cleverly, not releasing us until the final explosive ending.

After hearing Beecham speak about Grave Silence, I reread the book. If she had written a non-fiction account of this cult, I would not have believed the magnitude and far-reaching effects FLDS has on its victims, the young girls who are forced into this way of life by other adult family members. This fictional story, termed a "message mystery" by the author, cannot be ignored. It captures the reader and obliges us to look beyond our world. Beecham's telling helps us swallow the hard reality and reflect upon the importance of unmasking these groups. After reading Grave Silence, I suggest you take another glance. The implications of this novel are significant and cannot be overlooked.

(Beecham won a 2006 GCLS award in the mystery/thriller/adventure category for Grave Silence. In September 2006 Sleep of Reason, the second Jude Devine mystery, will be released.)
