Daughter of Silence by Morris West

Set in Siena, San Stefano

Morris West

Daughter of Silence

JACKET NOTES:  “It was noon on a sunlit August day in the Italian village of San Stefano... a Madonna-faced young woman got out of a taxi, crossed to the mayor's house, rang the bell, and when he appeared in his doorway, she shot and killed him.”
Like ‘The Devil's Advocate’, his earlier and immensely successful book, ‘Daughter of Silence’ ranges against each other the forces of good and evil...Morris West is more than a fine teller of tales...he deserves our deep gratitude as well as our praise.
