Publisher's Summary

In The Silent Inheritance, the author of the best-selling Woody Creek series brings another unforgettable cast of characters to life in a brand new story.

Sarah Carter, mother of 12-year-old Marni, is raising her daughter alone in a small granny flat in suburban Melbourne.

A serial killer, dubbed 'The Freeway Killer', is headline news and when Marni's classmate is abducted from the mall where Sarah and Marni shop, their city no longer feels safe.

Detective Ross Hunter's investigation into the abduction leads him to dead ends - until an unrelated incident sends him to the door of Freddy Adam-Jones, an unscrupulous barrister, who is guarding a secret that could ruin his life.

When an unexpected windfall changes the lives of Sarah and Marni, their sudden wealth opens doors long closed, and threatens to cast light on history better left buried. What might Sarah's past reveal? What is her connection to Freddy? And can Detective Ross Hunter discover the link in time to save a young girl's life?

IMHO, not worth a credit

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I am not sure. The first hour of the book attempts to introduce a myriad of characters but it does not give adequate context so the reader is left with no way to catalog them.

Has The Silent Inheritance turned you off from other books in this genre?

No. I generally like psychological mysteries.

What about Deidre Rubenstein’s performance did you like?

The narrator did fine with what she had to work with.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. There were so many characters that had so many problems. The author attempted to solicit sympathy for every one of them. All the individual issues seemed trite and tired; no imagination.

Compelling and Yet.....

This is a great story and yet...the actual connections made in the story seem a little over the top. Marnie is a wonderful character for a girl who is only 13 she most definetly has an old head on her shoulders. Sarah/Jillian is also a great character but her connections through the story are somewhat too unreal to be true.
Nevertheless it is a good tale to listen to!
