Detective Cameron Douglas, a werewolf retired from the force, after he is deafened in an attempted murder while working the investigation into the death of the mayor's secretary. ENT therapist Noel Miller is a vampire, who wants to be more than Cam's interpreter.

Silence, part three of a multi-author series, Dire Wolves, has a well-constructed action plot of living with disability, a mystery, as well as two lonely men finding romance. The setting is Florida. The detailed characters have realistic issues and the lovemaking is especially sensual. While still in the hospital, Cam’s boss paid a visit to announce that Cam’s badge had been retired. Cam was furious over leaving the murder case of his mother’s best friend still unsolved. Cam’s life had suddenly become a double edged sword; adjusting to the loss of his hearing and realizing that there was more than a little attraction to Noel. Both Cam and Noel have a two-fold reason to conceal their true nature from the humans they work amongst. To the world they live in, werewolves and vampires do not exist, plus being gay is equally unthinkable.

The amazing Lena Austin has created an impressive action-suspense saga interwoven with humor in addition to intriguing secondary characters. I thoroughly enjoyed Silence.
