Présentation de l'éditeur

Manhattan. FBI Special Agent Silver Cassidy, the head of a task force that's on a collision course with disaster, finds herself fighting impossible odds to stop a serial killer before he can kill again.

Struggling to balance the hunt for a savage predator with the challenges of being a single mom, Silver finds herself thrust into a nightmare of brutality that will demand every ounce of determination she possesses to survive.


Q&A with Russell Blake

Q: Silver Justice is a departure from your usual action/adventure thrillers. Why a police procedural/serial killer epic featuring a female protagonist?

Russell: I got the idea for a strong female protag who was a take no prisoners Fed when I was thinking about a sequel to Fatal Exchange. I sort of thought, wouldn't it be interesting to write a Silence of the Lambs kind of main character, a la Agent Starling, but make her more experienced, & have her dealing with a host of complications from her personal life even as she's involved in the most important case of her career? I wanted her to be really richly drawn, & complex, & struggling with issues that are catastrophic, so the pressure just keeps mounting until you're wondering what more can happen without her head exploding. And I wanted her to be very smart, & capable, but also address the issues of a female swimming upstream in a male-dominated career. I like the way Silver turned out. She became very real for me as I wrote the book, & I can envision her carrying a whole series. She's definitely got the depth to do it.

Q: The book explores the causes of the 2008 financial crisis & posits a frighteningly plausible conspiracy.

Russell: I've always been uncomfortable with the official explanations for how the entire market for mortgage backed securities could collapse overnight, triggering a run on the stock market & a tunneling of some of the biggest names in American finance, & plunging the world into crisis. As I began researching the root causes, I quickly arrived at a number of extremely disturbing conclusions. The more I researched, the worse it got. By the time I was done, I felt like I could write a 500 page treatise on the topic, & the art was to synthesize all of that into something believable, digestible, and upon which I could frame the story without browbeating the reader. I think this book is probably my most believable conspiracy yet, so much so I'm very uncomfortable saying where the truth ends & the fiction starts, assuming it starts at all. I will say that the 2008 crisis is the crime of the century, if not all recorded history, & the hypothesis I provide will jar & disturb any thinking person to the point that they're sitting back going, "No way." The horrible part about it is that much of it is truth parading as fiction. Interested readers can research the meat of it, & I guarantee it will alter their world view. Not too many fiction novels can stake that claim.

Q: Silver Justice is harshly critical of the market & the regulators, as well as the entire political machine. Why?

Russell: We're living through extraordinary times - a once a century redistribution of wealth. As I educated myself on the causes of the Depression & the 29 Crash, I was struck by how corrupted all the elements of the system are, & probably have been for eons. I think most people believe that the cops are honest, & that there are protections in place. They are sorely mistaken, & it costs them dearly for their misconceptions. As an aside, I'm sure that this novel will be extremely unpopular with the financial industry. Nobody wants the warts of the system displayed for examination, especially if their livelihood depends on everyone believing all is well. In the end, I leave it for readers to make up their own minds.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Russell Blake at his best 28 juillet 2012
Par Steven Konkoly - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Silver Justice showcases Russell Blake at his best. I'm not going to lie. When I heard that the protagonist for Blake's newest release would be a divorced, single woman, juggling between duties as a senior investigative FBI agent and struggling mother...I was skeptical. I will never again doubt the literary capabilities of this prolific author.

Blake's latest thriller combines all of the aspects he does best into one story. Fans of Blake's conspiracy undertones will not be disappointed, however, Blake has matured in the way he injects his patented, research-based conspiracy theories into the story. Though the conspiracy weighs heavily, it propels the story from behind the scenes. Always present, but never overwhelming. In this story, the characters drive the drama...speeding along at breakneck pace. Silver Justice delivers plenty of action and suspense, but at its heart, this is a rock solid police procedural thriller.

Focused on tracking down a serial killer terrorizing Wall Street high rollers, Agent Silver Cassidy has her hands full. Her task force has no leads, a contract has been put out on her head, her slimy ex-husband has just filed for full custody of her daughter...and that same daughter isn't making matters any easier on her. Add to all of this a subtle dimension of sexual discrimination/glass ceiling syndrome, and Agent Cassidy can barely keep her head above water. But she does....and Blake captures her essence masterfully. He kept me fully engaged in her character from start to finish.

Beside Silver Cassidy, there are several memorable supporting cast members: an intelligently humorous "consulting" agent, a sadistic biker gang leader, a nefariously wry Russian mafia boss, and my favorite, Agent Heron. I cheered every time he showed up. You'll quickly understand why...if the FBI had one agent like this in every major city, crime would slow to a trickle within a week.

Blake clearly took his time with this one, shifting his focus and skills from the insanely paced, explosive Assassin series, to this thoughtful, exciting thriller.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Silver Justice - An Educational Thriller!!!! 23 juillet 2012

Russell Bake has outdone himself with his new book, Silver Justice. This book has everything. A glamorous female FBI Special Agent, with enough personal issues to keep anyone totally preoccupied. A task force she supervises that is charged with finding a serial killer who appears to be invisible and without motive. If that isn't enough, there's a contract out on her, and she doesn't have a clue why. But wait, that isn't all, and frankly, the thing I haven't mentioned yet is the reason I've been excited about this book, since I first got wind of it. If you have any questions about how we got into this global financial quagmire that doesn't seem to have an end, Russell answers them all in Silver Justice.
That's right. Silver Justice is not just a well written, finally crafted, bang, bang, serial killer, manhunt, that not only will keep you on the edge of seat and your night light burning late, but it is also a cutting-edge, financial textbook that is easily understood.
I'll bet that Russell spent more hours on research than he can even begin to count, but I, for one, thank him for it. This is stuff we all need to understand, in a package that is very palatable.
My hat's off to Mr. Blake, and I hope he sells a million copies of Silver Justice in the next six months. I have an idea that he will.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 SILVER JUSTICE ONE OF MY FAVORITES 23 janvier 2013
Par Preston L. Johnson - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
The plot was superb and kept my interest to the point that I did not want to stop reading when necessary, Silver was very human, a single mom trying to cover all the bases, which she did quite well as was humanly possible. She was dedicated to her FBI job, but at the same time had to deal with a 10-year-old daughter going on 16! I will not dwell more on the mother-daughter relationship for fear of giving away too much of the story in advance,

One of my favorite Kindle books, and I want to enjoy other books by Russel Blake, who is very talented.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book!! 17 février 2013

Silver Justice is an awesome book. I loved this story immensely. A thriller that kept me glued to the pages. Well written. An array of characters whom are great. Even the bad guy is actually pretty cool. This story was a great story. And, based on the facts behind the 'perfect crime', this story will raise a lot of questions to all. Highly recommended!
