Tale of a man rescuing a maiden in the desert. He helps her out because of the resemblance between the Claire's son, and his own deceased son. Not as enjoyable as others of Pronzini's tales, but worked well as background tape for exercising with. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0802717136, Hardcover)

A scintillating new thriller by one of the masters of the genre, following his Grand Master Award from the Mystery Writers of America.

“When Geena finally left him and filed for divorce, Fallon put the Encino house up for sale and took the last two weeks of his vacation from Unidyne.  Then he loaded the Jeep Liberty and drove straight to Death Valley.  The desert country had a way of simplifying things.  It cleansed your mind, allowed you to think clearly.  Allowed you to breathe.  The one place he truly belonged.” 

So opens Bill Pronzini’s exciting new thriller.  On his third day in the Valley, Rick Fallon comes upon a deserted Toyota Camry, and soon thereafter, the almost-dead body of Casey Dunbar.  Having rescued her, Fallon soon learns what had driven her to give up on life…and, his own life on hold, he resolves to unravel the twisted and dangerous strands of hers, a quest that leads him to the glitter-dome of Las Vegas among other locales.  The result is a story as dramatic and memorable as anything Pronzini has written, reminiscent of his classics Blue Lonesome and A Wasteland of Strangers.  In The Other Side of Silence, Bill Pronzini is indeed a Grand Master.
