    A free PDF copy was gifted to me by the author in exchange for a fair review Just finished reading it and it was a kaleidascopic whirl through the land of Shenandoah Mountain Lake an area in Virginia which the author writes so lovingly about Silent Waltz is a murder mystery but than that it's a study in character and the depths some of the novel's participants will sink toSalem Matthews IV ex US Army Special Forces officer is a self made successful businessperson blessed with a loving wife and 'seer' daughter Her travails were touched upon in previous novels and only dealt with here in a cursory manner but we know something is up from the first page where Matthews struggles in from the water during a storm The author paints a vivid picture of his struggle and the imagery used is stark as well as imaginativeAs to the story a mysterious corporation comes around with the expressed intent of buying up one of Matthews's properties He isn't interested in selling but the buyer a smooth glib sort tells him that he'll end up doing business one way or another and soon a series of murders and near misses occur and who's in on it and who's behind it all? The author sends us on a twisting turning journey with no shortage of suspects and a couple of murders along the way and while there are some moments that could be considered deus ex machina the arrival at the identity of the murderer is no less satisfyingPaxton's gift for imbuing each character vividly and less than perfectly I might add is considerable This is a solid read one well recommended
