Here's the set-up:
"The Marriage of Silence and Sin" has won the SILVER MEDAL for the 2011 Independent Publisher Book Awards for the mystery/suspense/thriller category. If you like Jodi Picoult or Stieg Larsson, the book will grab you and run. The plot-driven story takes the reader on an electric ride from the sleepy banks of the Ohio to Ciudad Juarez, unfolding a grisly mystery. Dicey Carmichael, a quirky British literature professor, is faced with the alleged suicide of a friend and former student. Convinced the death was a tragedy much more sinister, Dicey draws her best friend, Gale Knightly, an uptight, fast-track lawyer, into the lethal web to help uncover the horrific truth.

Desperate to find answers, Dicey and Gale turn to the artwork the young woman left behind. Her provocative and disturbing paintings give voice to the tortured past she could not confess in life. But was her past so dark that she preferred death over life?

What if the young artist knew that someone she loved was in danger? Perhaps then she would speak out—even if it meant forfeiting her life at the hands of a killer. As Dicey and Gale dig deeper into the mystery of the girl's death, they find disturbing connections within their own lives. As they seek to give voice to their dead friend, the women must first face their own fears and prejudices to finally uncover the murderer. Will the best friends untangle the tragedy before death strikes again, but this time much closer to home?

Draped in wit and irony, "The Marriage of Silence and Sin" is a riveting, cautionary tale that explores the intermingling of human experiences, choice and fate in molding the human condition.
One Reviewer Notes:
Jacki Lyon is a brilliant writer whose riveting novel sucked me in from the very start! Its provocative plot is full of twists that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. My book club chose this selection and thoroughly enjoyed discussing its themes and symbolism. I highly recommend that you delve into this fabulous book!

From the reviewers:

“Many of the secrets revealed in “The Marriage of Silence and Sin” are dark indeed, yet Lyon never wallows in them nor uses them for gratuitous purposes. . . . The characters are vibrant, believable, and relevant to the contemporary world. . . . Lyon’s debut novel is well worth reading. She is a writer to watch for in the future.” –Janine Stinson, ForeWord Clarion Review.

Anne K. Mellor, Distinguished Professor of English, UCLA, read The Marriage of Silence and Sin with “great pleasure.”

“Spent the whole morning in bed reading your book! Could not put it down . . . LOVED IT!” — Julie Martina, Anderson Township

“Your book is riveting! I’ve written that ‘I’ve finished . . . ‘ BUT, the story will remain with me for a long, long time! At the end . . . my heart rate/blood pressure was UP and RACING in the wee hours of the morning . . . . the story left me feeling every emotion humanly possible ! It made me sad, happy, laugh and scared to death!” — Mary Joe Karch, Cincinnati

From the reviewers:

Page turner.  I thought this book was very thought provoking and kept the reader wanting to know more about each character. Any book that gets me to turn the page and keeps me thinking about it for months after I finish the book, is worthy of my time. Can’t wait until the next book comes out!  –  “Don’t read much”

A fabulous read.  Jacki Lyon is a brilliant writer whose riveting novel sucked me in from the very start! Its provocative plot is full of twists that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. My book club chose this selection and thoroughly enjoyed discussing its themes and symbolism. I highly recommend that you delve into this fabulous book!  – J. Sennett

Ms. Jacki Lyon, in her novel, “The Marriage of Silence and Sin” creates a wonderful reading experience by creating strong, authentic, believable characters, all of whom come alive and reveal themselves through Ms. Lyon’s wonderful diaglogue that truly captures the precise manner in which women communicate with each other.  – Paula

The Marriage of Silence and Sin is a tremendous first novel from Jacqueline Lyons. Lyons has created a suspense-filled contemporary American Gothic mystery that grips the reader with concern for troubled art student Elle Pandion. The book is difficult to put down as the reader delves deeper into the mystery surrounding the talented painter and seeks clues to whether she will find redemption. I highly recommend it.  –  John J. Dreyer

Her father, friends and boyfriend are all in attendance. The story then gets into the minds of these characters, ultimately ending with an interesting twist. Great read!  –  “Bam”

What if the young artist knew that someone she loved was in danger? Perhaps then she would speak out—even if it meant forfeiting her life at the hands of a killer. As Dicey and Gale dig deeper into the mystery of the girl's death, they find disturbing connections within their own lives. As they seek to give voice to their dead friend, the women must first face their own fears and prejudices to finally uncover the murderer. Will the best friends untangle the tragedy before death strikes again, but this time much closer to home?

Draped in wit and irony, "The Marriage of Silence and Sin" is a riveting, cautionary tale that explores the intermingling of human experiences, choice and fate in molding the human condition.
One Reviewer Notes:
Many of the secrets revealed in 'The Marriage of Silence and Sin' are dark indeed, yet Lyon never wallows in them nor uses them for gratuitous purposes. . . . The characters are vibrant, believable, and relevant to the contemporary world. . . . Lyon's debut novel is well worth reading. She is a writer to watch for in the future.

“Many of the secrets revealed in “The Marriage of Silence and Sin” are dark indeed, yet Lyon never wallows in them nor uses them for gratuitous purposes… The characters are vibrant, believable, and relevant to the contemporary world.”

–Janine Stinson, ForeWord Clarion Review



Here’s the set-up: 
 

The Marriage of Silence and Sin” has won the SILVER MEDAL for the 2011 Independent Publisher Book Awards for the mystery/suspense/thriller category. If you like Jodi Picoult or Stieg Larsson, the book will grab you and run. The plot-driven story takes the reader on an electric ride from the sleepy banks of the Ohio to Ciudad Juarez, unfolding a grisly mystery. Dicey Carmichael, a quirky British literature professor, is faced with the alleged suicide of a friend and former student. Convinced the death was a tragedy much more sinister, Dicey draws her best friend, Gale Knightly, an uptight, fast-track lawyer, into the lethal web to help uncover the horrific truth.

Desperate to find answers, Dicey and Gale turn to the artwork the young woman left behind. Her provocative and disturbing paintings give voice to the tortured past she could not confess in life. But was her past so dark that she preferred death over life?

What if the young artist knew that someone she loved was in danger? Perhaps then she would speak out—even if it meant forfeiting her life at the hands of a killer. As Dicey and Gale dig deeper into the mystery of the girl’s death, they find disturbing connections within their own lives. As they seek to give voice to their dead friend, the women must first face their own fears and prejudices to finally uncover the murderer. Will the best friends untangle the tragedy before death strikes again, but this time much closer to home?

Draped in wit and irony, “The Marriage of Silence and Sin” is a riveting, cautionary tale that explores the intermingling of human experiences, choice and fate in molding the human condition.


One Reviewer Notes:


The Marriage of Silence and Sin is a “can’t put down” novel filled with intrigue and suspense. The story starts at the funeral of a young girl who committed suicide. Her father, friends and boyfriend are all in attendance. The story then gets into the minds of these characters, ultimately ending with an interesting twist. Great read!
