If You Like Randall Silvis Books, You’ll Love…

Two Days Gone is the first book in the Ryan DeMarco Mystery series. The book sees DeMarco getting a case where a seemingly happy family man with a seemingly perfect family decides to destroy it all. The story begins when DeMarco is called to the crime scene of a murder of a wife and child with their college professor having gone missing. He’s the prime suspect, but DeMarco isn’t quite sure that he is capable of a crime like this. However, if he didn’t do it then why is he on the run? The half-finished book that the professor was writing may hold the key to finding out just what happened here.

Another popular book by Silvis is First the Thunder. The book follows three brothers in a run-down Pennsylvania town. Harvey is a truck driver, Will owns a struggling bar, and Stevie works odd jobs. They are all living a tough life and when Harvey gets shafted by his brother-in-law on a deal, he turns to his brothers for revenge. Their plan ends up going awry and instead the brother’s stumble upon a shocking secret that could change their lives forever. The brothers will need the help of Will’s wife Laci who may be the only who can stop the coming storm.
