    3. Traveling Sisters Group Read Review by Norma, Brenda, Kaceey and Holly4.5 stars SAY NOTHING by BRAD PARKS is a wonderfully blended tale with an extremely engaging storyline that includes child kidnapping, a legal thriller, and a psychological thriller that was tense, thrilling, and gripping that kept us guessing and wondering right to the very end This book really grabbed our attention quite early on and the ending was so powerful that it had a few of us actually weepy and having to grab that bo [...]

    4. Gripping is the word best suited to describe this wonderful phsychological thriller from Brad Parks Alison thinks her husband Judge Scott Sampson has picked the kids up from school as he usually does on a Wednesday, but Scott received a text from Alison saying that she d pick them up the only problem being, it wasn t Alison who sent the text When Alison arrives home without the kids, Scott is about to ring the school when he receives a call saying the kids have been kidnapped and that he must do [...]

    5. 2.5 A well respected judge and his wife of many years Two abducted six year old twins A text that advises the judge to Say nothing if he ever wants to see his children again.Intriguing premise, so why did I utterly fail to connect with this story, one that has garnered many high ratings and reviews Well for one, from the very beginning I found the tone irritating, off putting I can t imagine anything worse then having your children abducted, not knowing where they are, would you ever see them ag [...]

    6. This was a great book to read along with the Traveling Sisters Group Including Norma, Brenda, Kaceey and myself We had so much fun pointing fingers at all the characters we suspected of the kidnapping I really needed Lindsay to help me out with a believability issue I was having, but she was no where to be found I was transfixed to this book after the first chapter There is no slow build up here, we go straight into the horrifying conclusion that someone has kidnapped the children of Alison and [...]

    14. The tension in Say Nothing is palpable and that is what you want from a decent thriller, for it to actually feel like you are right on the edge of a cliffThis novel featured many nail biting cliff hanging moments and is written beautifully to drag the reader into an impossible decision making process taking place within the pages Judge Scott Sampson is stuck between a rock and hard place, from the moment he and his wife Alison realise their children are gone, you are hook line and sinkered into [...]

    15. Say Nothing, by Brad Parks, is a crime thriller about a federal judge whose two young kids are kidnapped He and his wife must do exactly as the kidnappers say and they certainly have reasons they ve planned it out very thoroughly or else This is a fine novel It has all the elements of addictive crime reading, but it just never came together, for me The writing isn t emotional the prose is very pedestrian, matter of fact I couldn t warm up to any of the characters and, therefore, wasn t scared o [...]

    16. No Digas Nada es mi primera vez leyendo un libro de Brad Parks y narra la historia del juez Scott Sampson.Siempre que inicio una novela de este genero lo hago con mucha emocion, no solo porque es un genero que no leo muy a menudo sino tambien porque me gusta la sensacion que me acompa a mientras leo este tipo de historias, esa incertidumbre, los nervios y el echo de crear teoria tras teoria hasta que se descubre el misterio, es una experiencia que me encanta pero que por desgracia no siempre con [...]

    17. Acabei de terminar este livro e tenho de vos dizer que estou cada vez mais f do g nero thriller Nunca tinha ouvido falar do escritor norte americano Brad Parks e confesso que se a editora n o tivesse tido a simpatia de me enviar um exemplar para cr tica, muito provavelmente tinha me passado completamente ao lado, o que teria sido uma pena N o Digas Nada foi o pedido que os raptores fizeram ao Juiz Scott Sampson depois de terem levado os seus dois filhos g meos de seis anos, Sam e Emma Scott n o [...]

    18. This is the true definition of a thriller A lil Grisham thrown in for good measure maybe Grippando All added together made for a true page turner Thanks to Dutton for this early copy in a giveaway in exchange for review

    19. The plot of this book depends on a lot of people saying nothing, when the sensible thing to do would be to call the police or give warnings or to say something But if they did the sensible thing, there wouldn t be a book and that would be too bad, because this was an enjoyable thriller The six year old twins of federal judge Scott Sampson are kidnapped and the judge is told to say nothing to anyone and to just await instructions The kidnappers seem intent on manipulating the outcome of a trial, [...]

    23. Novela judicial, protagonizada por un juez federal, con una narrativa gil, trama atractiva y personajes bien desarrollados.

    24. While its premise may be a smidgen far fetched, this book has a plot that reads at a breakneck speed where you don t know who to trust For mostly a legal thriller, I had a hard time putting it down The short chapters kept the pages turning and it was beyond suspenseful I ve never read Brad Parks before but I can t wait to see what he comes up with next Trigger warning The book starts out with and the main mystery is two little kids who are kidnapped.

    25. This is a terrific five star thriller with darkness, humour, and depth from a very talented author who s not yet that well known to the broader reading public on the European side of the Atlantic.Brad Parks is an award winning writer from the United States he s the only author to ever win the Lefty, Shamus, and Nero Awards , and is extremely well regarded over there But this standalone, which steps away from Parks books starring investigative journalist Carter Ross, is being touted as something [...]

    26. Their first move against us was so small, such an infinitesimal blip against the blaring background noises of life, I didn t register it as anything significant That s the opening line of Brad Parks s new thriller Say Nothing.And then it becomes real significant, real fast Someone has kidnapped Judge Scott Sampson and his wife Allison s twins Why his family What do they want Money No, it s something else.Parks has crafted an addicting read There s a nice mixture of suspense, family dynamics and [...]

Judge Scott Sampson has a pretty good life married to Alison, who he s been with for 25 years and in love with his six year old twins, he really couldn t ask for On his usual day to pick up the kids, he gets a text from his wife saying she ll pick them up instead He gets home and finds his wife there, without the kids and she s saying she never sent him a text With the ring of the telephone, their nightmare begins He must do exactly as he s told and SAY NOTHING to anyone or his kids get hurt So [...]

    28. Since I am a diehard fan of Parks Carter Ross series, I had to get my hands on a copy of Say Nothing Would he be as good as Linwood Barclay at writing a novel of domestic suspense I just had to find out.The best parts of the book for me were the scenes involving the two six year olds, Sam and Emma The story just shone whenever they appeared, and the tension wrapped itself around me like taut barbed wire as I read.The most interesting part of the plot for me was trying to figure out exactly what [...]

    29. I lapped up this standalone novel by Brad Parks, devouring it in one evening Scott is a wonderful character We re in his head the whole time so privy to his every thought And suspicion His love for his children is palpable and he s prepared to do whatever it takes to get them back, including offer inexplicable verdicts that will have his credibility and ethics questioned and possibly even see him impeached In fact I admired the fact he didn t once feel torn about what he needed to do Parks intro [...]
