Lies of Silence

Lies of Silence

For Michael Dillon the moment comes just as he is making a decision which he expects to bring him the greatest happiness he’s ever known. An ordinary man trying to get on with his life, he now finds himself suddenly on the edge, faced with a moral choice which leaves him absolutely nowhere to turn. The expectation of happiness is replaced by a nightmare maze of dead ends.
