Publisher's Summary

FBI Hostage Rescue Team member Shane Livingstone is frustrated when an injury sidelines him during an operation to catch a sadistic killer. A killer who auctions off vicious ways to torture his victims and screens the events for money on the dark web. When a teammate dies during the op, a devastated Shane vows to track down the monster responsible—but to do so he’ll need access to specialized skills he doesn’t possess.

A bloody game of cat and mouse....

As a white-hat hacker at Alex Parker’s security firm, Yael Brooks knows how to track predators through the darkest recesses of cyberspace. She can’t say no to Shane’s request…even though she fears her own secrets may put her at risk. 

With a serial killer who makes it personal....

Shane and Yael must work together as a team if they hope to stop this psychopath. As they begin to grow closer, Shane demands Yael’s complete trust, but trust is the one thing Yael is reluctant to give. As the chase intensifies and more people die, it becomes obvious that the killer knows exactly who Yael is and plans to make both her and Shane pay the ultimate price for getting in his way.

Great Romantic Suspense!

This is the first book in the Cold Justice - Most Wanted series. Shane and Yael's story is highly suspenseful, complex, and enthralling. They are both fantastic characters. Shane, an FBI Hostage Rescue Team member, is very handsome, protective, and determined. Yael, a hacker at Alex Parker's security firm, is a beautiful, smart, sassy, and caring. The storyline is filled with secrets, action, and suspense. Eric G. Dove did an excellent job with the narration. I enjoyed it. Looking forward to listening to the next book in the series.

Exciting, thrilling and chilling

I was so looking forward to listening to this new series, The author knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat not giving much away. Who the killer was had me guessing almost until the end. It has been a long time since I listen to something this chilling, making your hold your breath, close your eyes and do a lot of praying. I found myself talking to the characters trying to get the to hurry up before what I knew was going to happen, happen. Setting here writing this review my heart is still beating fast and I am still taking deep breaths. I sure hope this never happens in real life it is the most chilling story I have seen in a long time. I have to wonder what this author has in store for us with the rest of the series. I really liked the characters, it was nice to see of from other books she has written. This is a hold your breath why holding your seat listen that will give you chills but at the same time thrilling you action side.


I just love Mr. Dove’s narration he pulls you in with a very strong and powerful voice. There are no background noises or repeating of words just a wonderful delightful listen. If any breaks were taken I could not tell he just delivers a very clean, clear and power audio. His tones are outstanding you can feel the passion, excitement coming right out of your speakers. His male voices are a wonderful as his female. You always know who is talking and what they are feeling. His normal voice is just a delight to listen to as he gives you the facts pulling you in to a world that has gone crazy. You can tell he has put a lot of thought into each character the voices fit them so well. He gives just enough pause, to let what he just read sink in giving it a powerful impact on the listener. Mr. Dove knows how to pull you in taking your on a ride that will leave you holding your breath wanting to pull the characters out of the story to keep them safe. His Performance is one of the best narrators I have listened to. I know when I see his name it is going to be a wild exciting ride.

This is one of the best books by this author, I can't wait to see what the next book is about. I really love this author and narrator.

Suspenseful

I had a blast with the first book I read for this author, and so as an avid fan of romantic suspense, I couldn’t resist when the opportunity to read 🎧︎Cold Silence, the latest standalone in her Cold Justice series. Narrated by Eric G. Dove, 🎧︎Cold Silence delivers a suspenseful tale with romantic elements. A tale which will have you flipping the pages as you as try to anticipate the villain’s next move and law enforcement course of action.

🎧︎Cold Silence is the first book in the author’s Cold Justice: Most Wanted series. It is a spinoff of her Cold Justice series. In her newest novel, the reader is introduced to Shane Livingston, a member of the FBI Hostage Retrieval Team and his love interest, Yael Brooks. Yael and Shane met while working a case involving a serial killer who not only films his kills but also engages his viewers by enticing them to bid on the method of torture for each of the victims. Shane, with Yael’s help, took a deep dive into the worldwide web, hoping to stop to stop the villain before he got to his next victim.

Sparks ignited the moment the two met. However, because of secrets and insecurities, it took a while for their relationship to develop. These two were complete opposites. Shane is outgoing, while Yael prefers her own company. I wondered how well a relationship would work between someone who hates guns and a law enforcement officer.

Yael’s past is one she would prefer to remain hidden. However, the villain with his cunning and suave computer skills is privy to her past and plans to use it to snare her into his Web. Entitlement and belief that his victims owed him something fueled his motivation for murder. It didn’t take long for me to figure out the villain’s identity. I also had a fair idea of who is next victim would be. The story moved quickly, which had me flipping the pages. I had to know how it would end.

Eric G. Dove did a good job with the characters and the narration. He has an engaging tone, which had me listening intently. His female voices all sounded the same, while his male voices were distinctive. I believe he needs to add some emotion to his narration.

Overall, 🎧︎Cold Silence delivered a suspenseful story that will keep readers on their toes.

When EG sets his sights on Yael, FBI HRT member, Shane, becomes her protector. Passion flares but can Yael survive a madman and her past? Enjoyable story and, as usual, Eric G.

This book concentrates on Shane & Yeal who both come together to hopefully find the person torturing victims. He's feeling guilty an injury has him using other talents, she's keeping things close to her chest not sure who to trust.

Another amazing audiobook in the Cold Justice world!

Toni Anderson’s mind is 🤯 to create these fast action romantic thrillers, and hold your attention until you find out what happens, it is nothing short of amazing!

We hear from old favourites like Alex Parker which is enough to pull me into this book! But this book is all about the cyber expert Yale Brooks who he has hired for his security firm. And one FBI team member, Shane Livingston who is on this job to get the unsub that Alex and his team have been after for some time. After Shane is sidelined with a broken arm in his latest rescue. He is sidelined when this task force believes they finally have this crazy unsub. Yet they are thwarted again and they lose some of their own to this sadistic killer. That’s when it takes on more emergency and becomes personal. They all want and need to stop this horrific person who is auctioning off choices in ending lives right there on the scary great big web. This story is full of twists and turns as they seek to find this crazy man and this team wants retribution too! In true Toni fashion we also get a budding relationship that has two characters learning how to trust one another.

I know when I listen to any Audiobook by Toni Anderson that is narrated by Eric G. Dove is going to be an amazing time. This team of author and narrator is unmatchable and will leave the listener on the edge of your seat. I love their combination of expertise that bring the books to live. They had me going to audiobooks back in the past and I haven’t returned back to reading when I can be so entertained by an audiobook. This book is amazing.

Thrilling ride for the current book. With steam right along with the suspense to hold everyone’s interest.

Such a thrilling and exciting ride!

This audiobook was amazing! I've found that you really can't get the full experince of a book until you've listened to it's audiobook and this one really blew me away. I really enjoyed Eric's voice and it works wonderfully for Toni's books. This is the first book following the FBI's Hostage Rescue Team in Toni's contiuned Cold Justice series and it started with a bang! Wow. This book gave me the creepy crawlies with the newest bad guy the FBI is up against. It will keep you on the edge of your seat, needing to know what is going to happen next. Toni never fails to have you nervous about what's going to happen next all the while turning up the heat with the two main characters. Yael was such a mystery and I loved her character. Shane was upfront and the calm needed during a storm. The two of them together was the distraction you'd want while dealing with what was going on. With other favourite characters showing their faces and getting to know new ones there is never a dull moment during one of Toni's books. Such a fast paced, thrilling ride with the perfect amount of romance that will have you gripping your book to try and stay calm! Loved this audiobook and can't wait for what's next!

Silence

Loved the narration of Eric G. Dove, perfect for this mystery

Suspenseful from the beginning. There is tons of action, twists and turns, secrets, and tension. Yael is a lovable heroine, Shane is ex military and Alpha . Shane meets Yael when he’s on light duties due to injury. But he is in the thick of things, hunting a serial killer. Not the most romantic place to meet, but you can feel chemistry between them.

Awesome book

Oh wow what an intense and suspenseful story. I loved the connection between Shane and Yael but this book was so much more than a romance. The story the plot and everything else combined keep you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. Old favourite characters as well pop in and out. Highly recommend this author and her books. Awesome. The narration was perfect too. I can’t wait for the next book now.
