After a U.S. marshal and her prisoner are gunned down outside of London's Heathrow Airport before the prisoner can testify against her boyfriend, the head of a violent animal-rights group, Leeds Detective Sergeant Keen Dunliffe doesn't seem like the right man for the case. But with an American federal agent dead and homegrown terrorists on the loose, Keen's undercover experience and knowledge of Yorkshire--the terrorists' backyard--come into play. He's ordered to head up a sting operation with Rachel Colver, an inexperienced police constable, who may have personal ties that will help her infiltrate the animal-rights group. However, Keen is worried about a plan that puts Rachel in obvious peril. The two hunker down and start working the case from the inside--while at the same time the most widespread outbreak of hoof-and-mouth disease ever to strike the English countryside is decimating livestock. Brutal extremists and police politics collide in a plot involving murder, intimidation, smuggling, and blackmail--with lethal consequences--in Kingdom of Silence , the second mystery in Lee Wood's richly imagined and superbly nuanced series featuring DS Keen Dunliffe.

display_description In the midst of an outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease, a U.S. marshal and her prisoner are killed. The prisoner was to testify against a radical animal-rights group. Out of leads, Detective Sergeant Keen Dunliffe is forced into the outbreak along with an inexperienced officer. Kingdom of Silence is the second in Lee Wood's complex, character-driven mystery series described by Publishers Weekly as "part police procedural and part historical with a dash of romance." Featuring a charmingly unlikely crime-solving duo-the rustic Leeds detective Keen Dunliffe and the plucky American professor Jillie Waltham-the series twists and coils with historical revelations, literary clues, family secrets, and police corruption.
