DC Gariella Darin is a new officer in the police department having recently transfered from Swansea.
She is assigned to work with DI Rhys Walker who was the lead in the case for a missing man and baby five years prior. Izzy Grant could never let go or move on after her boyfriend Charlie and their 1 month old daughter Alys disappeared. Charlie was taking Alys out to give Izzy a rest.
Izzy wakes from her nap and realizes they hadn’t returned. The opening chapter drops you into Izzy’s mind as she experiences the terror of looking through the empty house, calling Charlie’s cell and getting no answer. No sign of them or the car was ever found – this is in the begining. Then the cold case gets reopened.
There are some books where you peg who’s the killers or there are multiple suspects you can narrow down. Nope, not this one. There were a few times when it was slow moving but that doesn’t last long, I never saw it coming, the villian was a surprise to me.
I liked DC Gaby Darin as soon as she was introduced and was delighted there is a second book upcoming and hopefully it’s a series. Oh, it should be mentioned this book is titled Silent Cry in the UK editions. I say that so you don’t buy the same book twice.
I love the cover and this is how I armchair traveled to Wales. Would that I could take Harry Potter’s Floo Powder and pop in near Swansea or Cardiff. Alas……..
