Those who knew by Idra Novey

When do you speak out and at what cost? The story takes place on an unamed island in the aftermath of a US supported regime that has wreaked havok on the island people. Lena suspects that a powerful senator she was once involved with has murdered a young woman in his employ. What follows is a suspensful exploration of the forces that keep us silent in the face of evil. I loved the characters in this novel – even the slimy senator who I hoped would get his comeuppance in the end.
