The Silent Sisters by Robert Dugoni ~ a Review

by Donna Huber

In the third book of Robert Dugoni's Charles Jenkins series, Russia is on a witch hunt for the remaining "sisters" who were raised from birth to spy on Russia. It's up to Charles Jenkins to make contact and coordinate the extraction of the two remaining sisters. However, there is a kill order for Jenkins in Russia. He has narrowly escaped during his last two trips to Russia. Can he rescue the two women and safely return home himself?

I listened to the first book in the series when it was offered through Amazon Prime Reading. I enjoyed it but didn't love it. It was a so-so book for me and I didn't even notice when book 2 came out in 2020. Book 3 caught my attention before I realized it was part of the series. I'm so glad I picked it up.

My complaint about book 1 was that there wasn't much tension, even in scenes that should have been tension-filled. Perhaps that was just an issue of an author finding the right tone for a new book as The Silent Sisters has plenty of tension. As it is the third book and I wasn't sure if this series was meant to be a trilogy or not, the prologue has you wondering if this is the end for Charles Jenkins. I don't always care for prologues, but this one really set the tone for the whole novel.

This book can be read on its own. It has been a few years since I read book 1 and I remembered very little about it. Pretty much the only thing I did remember was that it was about women spying on Russia - kind of a reverse of the television show The Americans. I totally enjoyed this book and now I want to read book 2 to find out what he was doing in Russian then.

If you love spy novels, then you definitely need to check out this book.
