“Something far more dangerous than a big, bad wolf inhabits the north Georgia woods. For fans of dark obsession in the tradition of The Silence of the Lambs.”
“Dunn ratchets up the tension with each successive chapter en route to a satisfying conclusion. Silence on Cold River doesn’t feel like a suspense debut but rather the work of a genre veteran. Read it, and you will be on the lookout for whatever Dunn writes next.”
“A melodic and gritty debut thriller that gives readers an unnerving glimpse into the mind of a demented killer.”
– Christina Kaye, award-winning author of "Like Father, Like Daughter"

“Dunn’s writing is lyrical and seductive. She invented a killer who pulls you in tight and never lets go. Michael will haunt your dreams while Dunn’s prose lulls you under in a sadistic lullaby. A gripping tale told in hues of winter and blood. If you’ve never read a book like this, start with Silence on Cold River.”
