Unspoken, Dee Henderson’s latest book, tells the story of Bryce Bishop, a businessman and coin dealer, who is unexpectedly thrust into a business dealing with a young woman who has a rare, multi-million dollar coin collection to sell. When Bryce makes the connection between her and a famous kidnapping 20-year-old kidnapping case, learns about her changed identity and numerous unanswered questions, the intrigue deepens.
Meanwhile, Ann Falcon, a writer and former detective, re-opens an investigation on a long-cold case of a kidnapped baby. The baby was found dead, and the only clues to the kidnapping and murder were some questionable eye-witness accounts and a phone call recording.
I enjoyed this book, finishing all 440 pages in just a few days. The story lines were unique, keeping me wondering what would happen next. The casual mentions of millions of dollars being spent and given away throughout the book was quite foreign to me, of course, but added a peek into the lives and burdens of the very wealthy. There was no violence in the book, and really no intense suspense. It was more a mystery story and the examination of relationships developing through difficult circumstances.
Fans of Dee Henderson will appreciate that characters from previous books show up in this one as minor characters, allowing the reader to revisit previous storylines. Unspoken is not a sequel, however, so it will be equally enjoyable to new readers as well.
I received this book free from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review.
