Are you ready for a new face in the world of mystery novels? "Silent Conspiracy" by Lee E. Meadows introduces Lincoln Keller, private investigator and former police officer. He shares an office with his brother Jefferson, a bounty hunter, whose mannerism magnifies itself as a person you do not want to reckon with, but becomes an excellent backup for his brother Lincoln. Detroit, described by some as Motown and others the Motor City, is the backdrop of "Silent Conspiracy". Author Lee Meadows brings Lincoln to life in a way that you really want to know this person. This novel takes you into the plot of finding a muscial group named The Sentiments whose careers were destined to top the musical world with their harmony and songs. The group for unknown reasons suddenly disappears after giving a performance at Johnny's Lounge one night in 1955. That faithful night would change their lives forever. Forty years later, Erotica Tremaine, who wants to know what happened to the group for the sake of her husband, hires Lincoln Keller. The investigation and mystery begins. Mr. Meadows takes you, through Lincoln Keller, along his journey in finding out what actually happened to five young men who's singing careers looked promising. The minute Lincoln starts his investigation, the events that lead up and after that night in 1955, is a sure page-turner for any mystery reader. You will become consumed in wanting to know what actually happened in the alleyway outside Johnny's Lounge, that you would be amazed at the final outcome. I consider the novel not being straightforward but very in-depth, descriptive, as well as intriguing. Mr. Meadows very effectively describes the era of social acceptance and what was not accepted to set the string of events leading up to and after the night in 1955, forty years later. What absorbs you most in this novel is how well Mr. Meadows describes Detroit, each character, their surroundings and the events leading up to the explosive ending. No words are wasted; every adjective, pronoun, verb, and noun is placed in text to give you an excellent imaginative view of a mystery that will surely make you want to read more of Lincoln Keller. Mr. Meadows' outstanding ending gives you an opportunity to see closure in so many lives and situations. A must read for sure. Move over Magnum P.I., Lincoln Keller is a name to watch for and read.
