Fairbanks, Alaska (PRWEB) February 24, 2015
“Talking Can Be Dangerous” (published by Xlibris) for those who have seen things that are meant to be unseen. Author Priscilla Delgado’s suspenseful novel takes readers to exotic Egypt, where the sole witness to a murder flees for her dear life and encounters not only threats, but also hidden temptations around her.
The story follows an ordinary woman named Laura, the unsuspecting protagonist, whose life is forever changed when she decided to take the stairs instead of the elevator – an innocuous choice due to the touch of fall in the air and the exhilaration of having received an unexpected promotion at work, which left her full of energy. She was nearly up to the third floor when the door of the stairwell burst open and a very bloody and very dead body came hurtling down, landing in a lifeless heap at her feet.
In the split second it took to look up and see him standing there, gun in hand, their eyes met and she knew that Marcus Styver had recognized her. When later she found her little talking bird dead in his cage with his bill pointing to the news article about the murder, she recalled Styver having remarked of the little parakeet that “talking can be dangerous.”
Terrified, she goes to Egypt with her friend Janice, only to find that distance did not equate safety. She encounters the handsome Mahmoud el Sayed, but time will tell if he will be able to rescue the young women in time, or if he is actually their elusive stalker, just biding his time to eliminate the one eye witness to a brutal murder.
“Talking Can Be Dangerous” will appeal to readers who appreciate a fast-moving and thrilling story filled with colorful characters and exotic places.
