Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Title: Her Silent Cry
Series: Detective Josie Quinn #6
Author: Lisa Regan
Publication Day: 14/08/19
Wow! This really lives up to its tagline – it is “An absolutely gripping mystery thriller”.
Detective Josie Quinn is babysitting her friend’s son and has taken him to play in the local park. Whilst there, his play on the slide is momentarily interrupted by seven year old Lucy whose Mum apologises. Minutes later Josie hears Lucy’s Mum’s frantically calling for Lucy. They had been on the carousel and Lucy has disappeared whilst they were getting off….. Josie calls in the police and so starts her leading the investigation into the young girl’s disappearance, an investigation full of surprises, revelations and murders.
Throughout this story there are flashbacks but you’re unaware of just who they relate to but they really make sense when you discover just what happened and why. The tension racks up as the story progresses, anomalies discovered, lies revealed and murder victims found. It is a heart in your mouth thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat but it is also a story which explores relationships and truly is a gripping thriller. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and kept turning the pages till I reached the end. If you enjoy suspense filled crime thrillers where the Detective investigating is the main character, this is one you should try. I look forward to reading more in this series in future – especially to see how Josie’s relationship develops!
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book by Bookouture via NetGalley and this is my honest review after choosing to read it and not wanting to put it down until I’d finished it!
Round and round she goes, blonde pigtails flying, her high-pitched giggle catching on the wind. But as the ride slows to a stop, her seat is suddenly empty. Little Lucy is gone…
When seven-year-old Lucy Ross is snatched from the carousel in Denton city park, Detective Josie Quinn joins the frantic search. She’s the one who finds Lucy’s sparkly butterfly backpack abandoned by the ticket booth, a note with a devastating message stuffed inside: answer your phone, or your sweet little darling will die…
The next day, Lucy’s parents are filled with hope when they pick up a call which they think is from their babysitter – but instead it’s a chilling male voice on the line. Josie races to the babysitter’s small apartment only to find her lifeless body in a tangle of sheets on her bed.
Josie is faced with the most high-stakes case of her career as each new phone call from someone connected to the family ends with the shocking discovery of another body. This twisted killer wants revenge, and he won’t stop until the Ross family are in pieces…
Something is telling Josie that Lucy’s parents aren’t giving her the whole truth, but digging deeper into their lives will force her to confront a life-changing secret of her own. Does Josie have what it takes to crack this case? She has no choice if she’s going to bring Lucy home alive…
An absolutely unputdownable new crime thriller from an Amazon, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author. Readers who love Robert Dugoni, Angela Marsons and Rachel Caine will be hooked until the final, jaw-dropping page.
