Date Read: December 2013
Genre: Fringe Thriller, Thriller
Is she dead or alive? That is the question on everybody’s lips. Eve appears to have been killed -- that’s what everyone attending her funeral thinks, at least. But not even some of her top-brass colleagues know for sure whether her death is a hoax -- a way to ensnare her brutal captor, Jim Doane, once or for all. But even if Eve really is still alive, how much longer can this charade continue before she falls into even greater danger? CIA agent Catherine Ling will waste no time trying to find out. Years ago, Eve risked everything to help Catherine find her missing son. Now Catherine, along with Eve’s beloved Joe Quinn and Jane MacGuire, will go to the ends of the earth to save her

First Thought when Finished: Silencing Eve wasn’t my favorite in the trilogy but it tied up things in a very good way!
Overall Thoughts: Not really a review since I can’t do it without giving stuff away and I refuse!
I admit that my problem with Silencing Eve was too much Jane. She is my least favorite character in the series. I don’t know why I can’t connect with her but we just aren’t a reader/character match. I did enjoy everyone else including Margaret, Caleb, and Trevor who were all part of Jane’s story. I am a big fan of Kendra, so I am hoping in the future that we see Margaret and Kendra working together. They are exact opposites but that makes the dynamic interesting. Joe, Katherine, and the rest of Eve’s crew (I am being purposely vague here) were great too. I am not sure if we will get more of them in the future but I hope so. Characters are the reason that I really love this series.

Elisabeth is these characters to me! As the series has gone on, I have come to hear her narration in my head even if I pick up the print copy. She does an excellent job and her nuances are perfect for this role!
Final Thoughts: Overall this is probably my favorite trilogy to date in the Eve Duncan series. Very strong overall arc that had a satisfying ending.
During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
