Silent Coup

Silent Coup - a Diana Hunter Thriller

When private investigator Diana Hunter inherits her Uncle Bennett's hidden fortune, she also gets his secret files and his enemies.

With no knowledge of Bennett's clandestine past, Diana is bewildered when she is pursued by a shadow organization using the powers of the Patriot Act. Branded a terrorist, Diana is legally defenseless and realizes she can only save herself by uncovering Bennett's double life.

She learns Bennett was in Germany in 1933, witnessed Hitler's seizure of power, saw German democracy lost and friends killed. His decision to remain there as a spy immersed him in a world of espionage that did not end with the defeat of Germany. Bennett's darkest secrets lead to a poisonous legacy that oozed out of defeated Fascism and still festers today in our country's hidden halls of power.

If Diana is to survive she must use her investigative skill, her talent for disguise and a few close friends to expose a conspiracy at the highest levels of our government.

Silent Coup
Recently I finished your new novel Silent Coup and enjoyed it tremendously.

Your passages about pre-war Germany, the Patriot Act and the political abuse of power still resonate in my consciousness a month after finishing the novel.

It is great to read a novel with a strong female lead, an engaging plot line all the while learning about the causes and events leading up to the most significant historical event of the last century.

Looking forward to your next novel.

Silent Coup
The first time I read this book it kept me thoroughly entranced and I stayed up half the night reading it. However after a few days I realized that I had missed a lot of the plot by reading it too fast and had to grab it up again and reread it. I believe it is a wonderful and gruesome picture of how power can breed the seeds of corruption and danger, and I thoroughly admire the Diana Hunter character.

It has a story that is interesting and holds my attention through the whole book. It had some funny spots, some sad spots and some very exciting/tension building moments where I was on the edge of my seat and a really thought provoking theme. The characters and story kept coming to mind in the middle of my day. I can't wait to read the next one."

What a terrific read. Following the details and intricate twists and turns of the rise and fall of Hitler with a modern day twist. I loved the grit, determination and honor of the characters.
