Julio’s need to help the innocent had him going from the regular police department to the Humane Society, where he works hard to bring dog fighters to justice. His latest assignment nets him more than just the bad guys.

T.A. Chase’s latest book, Voice for the Silent, had me ready to cry more than once. The story line, with its many side stories, will hold the reader’s attention. Voice for the Silent, however, is a bit on the dark side and will leave you wondering about the way some humans treat those weaker.

The characters are strongly written and very intriguing. Julio is an investigator for the Humane Society and has seen the worst of man. Paine is a young man who has known nothing but abuse for as long as he can remember. The men meet when Julio tries to bring down Paine’s uncle. Their connection is instantaneous and Julio’s need to take things slow, for numerous reasons, is understandable. Readers will love how the author empowers Paine during the process of the story.

There are also many secondary characters, some good some not, who will hold the readers attention. These characters are just as intriguing as Julio and Paine. In fact, Betsy and Katie, Paine’s cousins, broke my heart. Even though the topics covered in Voice for the Silent are on the darker side, this is a great story that I will be reading again.
