Back Cover

The truth can be deadly.

In the first of this two-part novel, we learn the history of hunters Brighton Sands and Mark Evans in their two lifetimes, culminating in their final battle with the insane vampire they have been hunting for centuries.

In the second part, with Angelica Cross still on the run, multiple vampiric murders lead to the kidnapping of a famous vamp. Detective Danny Mancini must drag a mortal into the bowels of Hell in order to rescue her.

But why does Leander Price want her so badly, and what does she have to do with an ancient vampire prophecy?

I think that Lily Luchesi outdid herself with this book!

The first half of the book reveals the past-life and present-life history of PID agents Brighton Sands and Mark Evans. The second half of the novel picks up where Luchesi left off in Life Sentence. We find out more about the ancient vampiric prophecy that Angelica is supposed to fulfill, and we find that Danny is struggling to pursue a normal life away from the PID.

I thought that dividing the book into two parts was an interesting and bold choice for Luchesi. It builds suspense over what is happening in the present day with Angelica and Danny, and it brings secondary characters who have played crucial roles in the plot into the limelight. I was anxious to see what Angelica and Danny were up to, but I thoroughly enjoyed this diversion from the main plot.

The second half of the book is nothing short of amazing! It is clear from the beginning of this half that Leander's assertion that Angelica is supposed to fulfill an ancient prophecy will lead to a battle of epic proportions. The action is more intense, the camaraderie between the protagonists becomes more apparent, and readers get a good grasp of the darkness that dwells within Angelica; leaving us to wonder if she will allow it to consume her.

There is a reason for the darkness in Angelica's nature, and it has nothing to do with the fact that she is a vampire. Angelica goes through a lot in this book and it has taken its toll on her psyche. I liked that Luchesi did not whitewash the fact that Angelica's humanity was the catalyst for bringing out her dark side; it was raw, realistic, and it resonated with me.

I have enjoyed all of the Paranormal Detectives books thus far, but this one is my favorite. Luchesi got real here, and it shows. The dialogue is grittier, the action and gore are more ferocious, and the plot is more intense.

Right to Silence is definitely not for the faint of heart, but it is definitely worth reading if you enjoy paranormal creatures and a riveting plot with some raw emotion thrown into the mix.

Lily Luchesi is a young author/poet born in Chicago, Illinois, now residing in Los Angeles, California. Ever since she was a toddler her mother noticed her tendency for being interested in all things "dark". At two she became infatuated with vampires and ghosts, and that infatuation turned into a lifestyle by the time she was twelve, and, as her family has always been what they now call "Gothic", she doesn't believe she shall ever change. She is also a hopeless romantic and avid music-love who will always associate vampires with love, blood, and rock and roll.

Her interest in poetry came around the same time as when she was given a book of Edgar Allan Poe's complete work. She then realized that she had been writing her own poetry since she could hold a pen, and just had not known the correct terms. She finished her first manuscript at the age of fourteen, and was first published at twenty-one.

Her debut novel, Stake-Out (Paranormal Detectives Series Book One), was published by Vamptasy Publishing on May 19th, 2015. Book two, Miranda's Rights, was released on January 8th, 2016. Book three, Life Sentence, was released on August 2nd, 2016 by Vamptasy Publishing, and book four, Right To Silence, was also just accepted by the publisher and will be released on January 17th, 2017.

She had a short story, "Undead Ever After" in the CHBB Publishing anthology Love Sucks (released on June 13th, 2015). Her first erotic short story, "Have No Fears", was published in the Hot Ink Press anthology Naughty Bedtime Stories: In Three Words on October 10th, 2015. She will also have a short erotic horror story, "The Devil's Dozen", in the Hot Ink Press anthology Death, Love, Lust, which was released on February 4th, 2016. Her horror short "Too Young To Kill" was released in the CHBB Publishing anthology Lurking In The Shadows on June 28th, 2016.
