Blurb: A desire for justice as strong as their passion for each other.
Concerned about the welfare of his young cousin, Josh Jackson, a restaurant owner, traces the boy to Winterstone Grange, a gated manor deep in the country. Miles from anywhere, the protected walls of this stately house conceal dark secrets. Josh’s search brings him into contact with Ed Brolin, a handsome journalist who has spent weeks investigating the secrets of the Grange and its owner. Ray Armstrong is a wealthy businessman with influential connections in parliament and the police. Ed knows exactly what goes on at the Grange but, without evidence, he hasn’t got a story.
Drawn together by instant attraction and a powerful hunger for justice, Josh and Ed are determined to expose the sordid secrets of the Grange despite the risks. Josh has never met a man like Ed before—so strong, determined and masculine. Falling in love is easy. But they’ll have to put their emotions aside if they’re going to give a voice to all the silent victims of Winterstone Grange.

Review: One would think that an eighteen year old disappearing for a night or two is normal, but for Josh it sends him out searching. With the help of an journalist, well what he finds will stay with your forever.
The title makes this story seem more then it is but not for the reasons one would think. Victims need their story told, however the way the author did this book left a lot to be desired. For one the blurb pretty much gave you the story. Two it should have been expanded into a novel with a bit more back ground and action to it. For me it was just a nibble at a story and then plop it was over and done with. I hate to say it but if I had known that it was going to be like this, I would have not read it. The story itself is just downright nasty to me, but not the topic. The topic would have one in tears and pissed as hell, but the author made the story off a bit. It was focused on Josh and Ed’s relationship a bit too much in my mind.
Over all, this is one book that will not only not get read again, but will be deleted from my library. That is not saying that it was not written well, but just read the book and you can guess my reaction. I hate to say it, but this book was definitely not for me.
