It's funny but I can recall the day I read this book and how devastated I felt when I finished it in the wee hours of the morning. I'm a huge fan of Linda Howard's books, but this one just shattered me. I think it's the best book she's ever written and the ending is incredible moving.
Milla Edge is determine to find her son that was stolen from her ten years ago, but when she finds herself in a deadly ring she has nowhere to run but to the man she doesnt know if she can trust.
I read this is one night, no joke, it was great.
A very good book! The story takes place in Mexico, and once again, Linda Howard proves that she can sound like she knows what she's talking about! Gritty, and real, in the choice of the place of the story. Her main characters are likeable and mysterious and dangerous, not necessarily in that order! A story about a woman whose baby is stolen from her and her life's goal becomes to not only find her child, but find other lost children. The seductive, scary character, Diaz, who ends up helping her promises to make your skin shiver with goosebumps from fear and delight! All in all, I give it 3.5 stars out of 5. Still, if you havent read Linda Howards "Kiss Me While I Sleep", you havent read her best work. Try it out!!!
There is a good summary of the plot already on the site so I won't recap. I just want to say that I've read most of Linda Howards novels, and Cry No More is, without a doubt, her best single title novel. I've read this one maybe 5 or 6 times since I first read it years ago.
