Publisher's Summary

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 listen to this year from the best-selling author K. L. Slater. If you love The Wife Between Us or Gone Girl, you’ll be totally hooked on The Silent Ones.

Duh I need Cpt Obvious to be my bestie

The main character is sooo hopelessly clueless that it was hard to keep going. It had some good twists but the twists in her thinking made it hard to enjoy them. Good Narrator.

great narration and a fairly good story....

(this review contains no spoilers)

two ten year old girls end up deciding to go and scare an old lady with dementia and doing so puts in a series of events that the two mothers of the children need to sort out, it turns out that the family hold a very dark secret... the book has a plot within a plot what is very good and is easy to follow even when it jumps back in time. I found parts of it very predictable though not the ending but parts in the middle where I knew the guesses would be wrong, the narration is very good and is easy to follow even though there are many characters. it has a very good ending that I was personally unable to guess.

Brilliant listen

Really good. Forfeited sleep and my day off, and I like my sleep, just to listen to as much as I could. Riveting . Every time you thought you had a mystery figured out , there was a slight unexpected twist.
