From the New York Times bestselling author of The Theory of Death comes a short story set in an imaged future where computers speak for humans.
This tale begins, “It was a time when the world, though filled with sound, was quiet.” Technology has replaced the need to speak with texting, but when a virus spreads across the entire world, it leaves everyone blind. Doctors come together to fight the epidemic, but, as “The Voiceless” seek to answer, what does the ability to speak mean without the desire to do so?
“The Voiceless” by Faye Kellerman is one of 20 short stories within Mulholland Books’s Strand Originals series, featuring thrilling stories by the biggest names in mystery from the Strand Magazine archives.
Faye Kellerman is the author of twenty-six novels, including nineteen New York Times bestselling mysteries that feature the husband-and-wife team of Peter Decker and Rina Lazarus. She has also penned two best selling short novels with her husband, New York Times bestselling author Jonathan Kellerman, and recently has teamed up with her daughter, Aliza, to co-write a teen novel, entitled PRISM. She lives in Los Angeles, California, and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
