Mute is a twisting ride that will leave readers speechless. A detective's love for an orphaned girl witness has her turning a blind eye to evidence that could stop a wave of unnatural murders. Mute follows detective Monique "Moni" Williams, who has never lived an easy life-with an abusive ex-con father, a two-timing, pistol-wielding ex-boyfriend and a racist boss-it's hard to see how things could possibly get more difficult for her. After she meets a child that she bonds with, Moni must protect the girl from a mysterious threat stalking everyone near the Indian River Lagoon. A serial killer is on the loose on Florida's Space Coast, and Moni has been put in charge of the key witness in the biggest case of her life: an eight-year-old girl called Mariella. The child has gone mute after losing both her parents one harrowing night. Now, Moni struggles to protect the child and break her silence, while more reports of inexplicable deaths and animals with eerie purple eyes pile up. Her bond with the child is tested by a police force demanding answers. What does the lagoon's rotten stench have to do with a mute little girl? Can Moni save Mariella from what lurks along the water? Who is really facing the most danger? Find out in this suspenseful, page-turner that will keep you guessing until the very end.
