This book is Dunham's story of the chaos and conflict that entered her childhood after her mother's early death. In stark prose, she tells of growing up in both black and white households and of the divisions of race and class in Chicago that become the harsh realities of her young life.

Critics around the country have consistently praised Shamus Award-winning author Carol Lea Benjamin for her razor-sharp writing, stylish plotting, and characters so rich and fully fleshed that you feel as if you've known them all of your life. Now, in a tale of family secrets and heartbreaking betrayals, Benjamin lifts the private-eye novel to new heights -- planting herself firmly in the ranks of the most respected crime novelists writing today.

In a city where enemies are as easy to come by as friends and where paranoia is the norm, private investigator Rachel Alexander is surprised to see someone waiting for her at New York City's Washington Square Park dog run, where she takes her pit bull, Dashiell, for his daily R&R. When the distraught man asks her to find his missing wife, Rachel accepts the case reluctantly. After all, the chances of finding a woman who disappeared without a trace -- and without a word -- five years earlier are slim. But Rachel is touched by the missing woman's daughter, a troubled young girl who has been mute since her mother disappeared and who is now suspected of the brutal stabbing murder of her doctor.

Although the girl can't, or won't, speak for herself, Rachel believes she is innocent and is determined to find a way to communicate with her in order to discover the truth and clear her name. Against a backdrop of infidelity, neglect, and a city at times as lonely and frightening as a child's worst nightmares, Rachel's involvement in the case uncovers issues more complex, and more tragic, than she's ever seen, eventually exposing problems that someone is willing to die, or even kill, for.

Mining the underbelly of New York City's oldest and most fascinating neighborhoods and exploring its rich tapestry of people, Without a Word is a gripping and unforgettable work from one of mystery's most talented authors.

Every one of these books is just marvelous. I think this is my favorite, but they are all very, very good. The characters are complex--just like we all are. I never guess the ending, but always love the endings. Well, except that the book is finished :) I highly recommend this series. Here's hoping I don't have to wait long for the next one.

What I thought would be a simple who-done-it story turned into one of the most caring, heart- tugging stories you could ever hope to read. As Rachel searches for a missing mother, she is drawn to the child left behind who no longer speaks. Finding ways to reach the child and communicate with her are extraordinary to say the least. Rachel has so much heart as well as investigative insight that will keep you guessing until the surprising end. I am glad I read this book. It was recommended to me and I can't thank that person enough! WOW!

Rachel Alexander is a private investigator with her pit bull named Dashiell. While in the dog park Leon approaches Rachel to hire her to find his wife, Sally who has been missing five years. They have a daughter, Madison who stopped speaking when Sally left and Madison is now accused of murdering her doctor. Leon hopes if Sally can be found and return that Madison will start talking to explain what really happened. The dog plays a large part in the plot which is great to give pit bulls some good public relations. The story keeps you interested and the ending will surprise you.

I almost didn't buy this book because it had so few reviews. I read the reviews and they seemed very positive. I decided to give it a try. So glad I did! Very well written. The characters are both believable and likeable. I felt truly connected to Madison, her father, and Rachel and her dog Dash. I got totally emotionaly involved. I just wish there had been more of a hopefull resolution in the end, but there was hope. I will read more of this author!

I love all of Ms. Benjamin's books, the ones with Dash. He's my favorite hero. I own 2 pit bulls myself so I know how smart they are. I like the story line in this book, especially how the little girl learns how to interact with Dash. It was kind of sad that her mother chose not to return home, but then again, that's how real life is.

I think I've read most of the 'Dash' adventures and I hope she keeps writing them.

This is my first encounter with Carol Lea Benjamin, Rachel Alexander and Dash. I can say that it won't be my last. Well though out, interesting characters, a real page turner. Kept me up past my bedtime more than once reading "just one more chapter."
Interesting mystery involving a private eye and her dog. It was a little slow to start but the plot was interesting and the characters were believable.
