A moral man, he is sometimes faced with ethical choices in order to see that justice is meted out.The Big Silence takes Lieberman and his Irish partner, Bill Hanrahan -- the Rabbi and the Priest, as they are known on the streets -- on a journey that will test their consciences to the limit. When the young son of an informant in a government witness protection program is kidnapped and a grisly death occurs, Lieberman and Hanrahan will have to make some hard choices to set things right.Told with compassion and a keen insight into the human psyche, The Big Silence is a gritty, compelling mystery.
