I am super excited to share my review with you on publication day for The Silent Child by MJ White
When a body is discovered at an abandoned Suffolk farm, DS Rob Minshull and the squad believes it’s the latest casualty of the drugs war terrorising rural communities. But when the victim is identified as a well-respected local teacher, the case is thrown wide open.
While they hunt the murderer, the South Suffolk CID team face a new threat. A brutal vigilante group dispensing their own twisted justice puts the investigation in grave danger, as well as the detectives.
Educational psychologist, Dr Cora Lael, is called in to work with Lottie Arundel, a troubled teen who stopped speaking a year ago.
As Cora enters Lottie’s world, it seems that the teen’s silence might hold the key to the case. But as Cora and Rob work together to find a vicious killer, it’s clear that uncovering Lottie’s secrets will take Cora and Rob into the most dangerous of places – where the price to pay for the truth might be death…
The Silent Child is the second book in the Cara Lael series. The author is well know for her rom coms and plenty of sparkle but I have to say that I am loving the darker side of her writing. After loving the first book in the series I could’nt wait to find out what was in store for Cara in this book.
We catch up DS Rob Minshull on the hunt for the killer, when a body is identified has a local teacher. Carla is working with with teeenager Lottie Arundel, who hasn’t spoken for a year. Has the story unfolds we learn that Lottie’s secrets may well be the key to the case.
I love that the author devolops a character that as a unique ability giving us something different. Rather than your normal same old characters that you would expect to find. Silent Child is a dark and gritty story that will keep you hooked from start to finish.
MJ White has taken herself out of the box and talks about some uncomftable subject matters that aren’t everyones cup of tea. But uses sensitivity throughout and gives us a harrowing, tense, dark twisty plot. Making it a brilliant read. I cannot wait to read the next book now.
The Silent Child is an absolute winner!
