From reviews of Silent:

It rivals anything Stephen King has ever written.

I loved this book, it had a great story line, the ending was a shocker!!!!! I love mysteries, and this author is tops on my list!!!

This was one of those finger sliding books that had me guessing with each swipe I was amazed with the ending. Great work and I have already suggested this title to others for their reading pleasure.

I enjoy this type of book. I was surprised when the story caught my attention so quickly. The twist at the end was unexpected.

The voice/language did make me feel that i was in Hollywood in the 20's.

I REALLY enjoy reading Mitchell's novels, he's a great writer and his stories and characters are among the best I've ever read.

Sometimes money and fame can be a terrible curse! Find out how in this twisted, thrilling book

Hollywood, 1927, at the height of silent-movie production.

Down-on-his-luck movie actor Rick Mason meets Betsy Bellamy, a young actress struggling to make it in Hollywood. She is accompanied by her older brother Davey, a sullen, insular man fiercely protective of his sister. But Betsy and Davey share a dark past which they’re hoping to escape by making a new life in California. A past that will have tragic, murderous consequences.

But for now Rick Mason’s life is about to change beyond his wildest imaginings. He lands a lucrative contract with Metropolitan Studios, who want to cast him as the lead in their new horror movie. And out of the blue a Hungarian lawyer lands the bombshell that Rick Mason isn’t who he thinks he is.

Mason discovers he’s inherited an estate and huge fortune from his late father Baron Jozsef Dragutin and has to travel to Slavonia in Europe to sort out legalities. Here he is told the disturbing truth about his murdered mother and feared father – a corrupt and vile sadist hiding his horribly deformed face behind a white porcelain mask. A man, legend has it, who sold his soul to the devil. A man and a family line cursed by Satan for all eternity.

Back in Hollywood, reviving his father’s evil character for Metropolitan Studios, Rick Mason finally gets the movie success he desires and the fame and fortune that go with it. But when elements of his on-screen monster persona begins to affect his real life, Mason begins to fear that the role he was ‘born to play’ is slowly taking over him. That the curse of Baron Dragutin lives on in him.

Rick Mason is drawn inexorably into a world of corrupt desires, superstition, corporate greed, unbridled ambition and murder, where the past refuses to die. It’s a world where monsters and horror don’t only appear on the big screen.

“This is classic Mitchell, full of larger-than-life characters, a dark tale full of twists and turns, edge-of-your-seat drama and an unexpected, shocking conclusion…”

Beware! A curse can take many forms…

HASH(0x958a57b0) étoiles sur 5 Freaky, good thriller 1 juin 2013
Par Luv2read - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This is the first book I have ever read from author D. M. Mitchell and it was freaky good. It is set in the perfect time period (late 1920's) for the story line. Actor Rick Mason has been in a few flop movies and has been told by Prima movie company that he's done with them. To make things worse, he gets kicked out of his apartment, and this all happens in the same day. Things do start to look up for him though. He meets a beautiful lady Betsy and her over-protective brother Davey and gets to stay with them for a little while. His agent says a different movie company wants to meet with him and then a lawyer from Europe tracks him down to say he is to receive a huge inheritance from his unknown father. Without giving anything away, things get very interesting from that point on. The story line is easy enough to follow along with, but I did not see the ending come like it did. That threw me for a loop. I did notice a few editing errors though. One was in the very beginning, Rick was called Nick in a conversation, and the other was like someone hit the wrong key when typing a word. Just minor things but they did stick out. Other than that, this was a freaky, good thriller.

HASH(0x958a59fc) étoiles sur 5 Not bad... 11 décembre 2014

Story for the most part kept me wanting more. Some parts were slow and pondering, but again kept me interested. Gave only three stars as there were many typos/errors and because I do not appreciate an ending that REQUIRES me to purchase the sequel. The author should trust not only me, but his own ability as a story teller knowing I will WANT to move on to the sequel. Frustrating.

HASH(0x958a59c0) étoiles sur 5 Unexpectedly riveting. 7 septembre 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur

I nearly stopped reading this book as soon as I became aware of the era in which it was based. I am not generally a fan of stories that encompass a time that even my beloved grandmother would be hard pressed to remember. (Classics aside, of course) I found this story intriguing and enthralling from the beginning. The desire to uncover the mysteries of the past and how it all relates to the present times of the main characters kept me engrossed. I was admittedly surprised by the turn of events in the end. As someone who generally reads between 8 to 10 books a week, I am always impressed to find an author skilled enough to develop a plot line that I do not have figured out within the first few chapters. I would have loved an afterword that gave us readers a glimpse into what happened to Rick and Davey (aka Peter) after the final chapter. If that is the only issue I can find lacking in this book, then the author should feel pleased to have gained a new fan and I am looking forward to reading his other works.

HASH(0x958a5cb4) étoiles sur 5 D. M., you disappointed me! 21 avril 2014

I was excited about finding a new author after reading "Flinders Field." I'm not into horror or psychological terror, but I loved F.F. I then chose "Silent." Talk about formulaic. Even with the twist at the end, it was such a disappointment. I'm not giving up on you, however, Mr. Mitchell, because I so loved F.F. I'm thinking maybe it's me. Maybe Silent was just so hip, I would have gotten it if I had been hipper. Anyway, I kept expecting Gene Wilder and Gilda Radner to jump out and shout, "Surprise!" That didn't happen either. Yet another disappointment. (heavy sigh)

HASH(0x8d9fd1d4) étoiles sur 5 Surprisingly good. 23 juin 2013

I downloaded this out of boredom and was shockingly surprised. An antiquated and cliched premise that evolved into a genuinely good read. It was a perfect "beach read"-- involving & entertaining without requiring a lot of mental gymnastics. I enjoyed it. Period.
