This is a haunting read, that got under my skin. At times it was claustrophobic, being from a small place, where she had grown up, stayed and then lost her son 10 years previously.
For him to return, can you begin to imagine? How much would you want to know, and in reality not really want to...this is what compelled me to read the story The Silent Child.
The plot did twist and turn, slightly. I did have an inkling in who the abductor was, this didn't deter from the read. It did make the reading of the book different once assuming. There were still twists, and enough of my own inquisitiveness to keep me reading.
However, I didn't find this a page turner that I couldn't put down, I found some of the writing difficult to absorb as well as the plot.
I thought the main storyline was strong, but some of what then happened not quite so. As it was so haunting as said I did want to read it and would recommend reading the Silent Child, and as a debut suspense thriller it was a good read.
3.5 star rating review from Bookstormer.
