This morning, I was packing up lunches, ironing, putting on the laundry I should have done last night. Now my precious daughter is accused of murder.   

When 10-year-old cousins Maddy and Brianna are arrested for a terrible crime, Maddy’s mother Juliet cannot believe it. 

How could her bright, joyful daughter be capable of such a thing?   

As the small village community recoils in horror, the pressure of the tragedy blows Juliet and her sister’s lives apart. And things get even worse when their daughters retreat into a self-imposed silence. Can anyone reach Maddy and discover the truth before her fate is sealed?  

Juliet is crushed. Nothing will ever be the same for her darling girl. But she knows that to find out what really happened that day, she and her sister must unlock the secrets of their own terrible past, a past they swore never to speak about again.

The most unputdownable psychological thriller you’ll read this year from the bestselling author K.L. Slater. If you love The Wife Between Us or Gone Girl, you’ll be totally hooked on The Silent Ones.

K.L.Slater at her nail biting best! I was sucked in from the first paragraph! What seems like an open and shut murder case in fact turns out to be far more malevolent and as the full story is revealed. As we peel back layers of the mystery, we also uncover the layers of secrets that have held a dysfunctional family together since the apparently accidental death of their son and brother some years previously. I don’t want to spoil the suspense so I recommend you read it for yourselves! Brilliant!

Do murderers really confess this easily? A slightly unusual subject matter, therefore I was expecting to be intrigued and entertained. However, the story never really developed after the first few chapters. I felt like it was going round and round in circles just describing mundane interviews and dropping in a few hints that all was not well before the incident with the two girls. The back story, when it eventually reached it’s conclusion, was ridiculous to say the least, with an entire family colluding in hiding the truth and…
