But The Longest Silence is in a class of its own: a loving, measured and extremely nuanced paean to the great meditative and athletic sport that fishing is. A great pairing for this book is Norman Maclean's A River runs through It. These are guy books, mostly, and perfect for guy book clubs/5(69). The Longest Silence As he travels the fish take him to many and various subjects ripe for random speculation: rods and reels, the classification of anglers according to the flies they prefer, family and memory - right down to why fishermen lie/5.

The LONGEST SILENCE is the latest installment to the SHADES OF DEATH Series and it doesnt disappoint. A taunt thriller that will keep you riveted until the end and will keep you thinking about it, long after the final page has been turned/5.   Debra Webb is my go to for creepy suspense, serial killer novels. Her latest, The Longest Silence is no exception. While it is part of the Shades of Death world, the focus is Brand: MIRA Books.

  The thirty-three essays in The Longest Silence take us from the tarpon of Florida to the salmon of Iceland, from the bonefish of Mexico to the trout of Montana.
