too short and poor choice of narrator

I was given this book for free from audiobook boom and asked to leave an unbiased review for the author and narrator. I think the book was way to short to tell the story properly, a short story for 3 kidnappings and a homicide. I didn’t like it. I don’t think the narrator was a good choice for this story. Her voice is too up beat and childish for any story other than probably children or teenagers’ books.

A lot of violence

A lot of action with violence in this story. The characters and the detective was good. Going after a serial killer in or out of jail he is deadlyM. Given audio for my voluntary review

Can’t wait for Book 2

I’m so glad that I ended up purchasing this book. The Silent Ones is hands down my new favorite audible for 2019. I’ve already listened to 10 books this year.

The story was intriguing and definitely kept me at the edge of my seat almost the whole book. I liked the detectives and CAN’T wait for THE NEXT BOOK. Look forward to checking out James Hunt and hope police procedures is his genre.

"It's been a long time, Grant."

Convicted serial killer Dennis Pullman has been held in a top security prison for ten years but now three women have been kidnapped and somehow he seems to be behind them as he calls for one time detective, Chase Grant, to join his game and save the captives - it he can. He has twelve hours.

Short, just three and three quarter hours, of non stop excitement with scenarios as well as characterisation to hold the reader's attention. The ending leaves open the possibility of a sequel.
Narration is by Gwendolyn Druyor. Although excellent in many other presentations and she does give a very reasonable performance here, sadly she was wrong for this book where the story mostly calls for male voices. Why, I wonder, this obsession to have a female reader whatever the story might suggest? It is not 'equality', just foolishness.

My thanks to the rights holder who,at my request,freely gifted me with a complimentary copy via free Audiobook Codes. Recommended to all who enjoy fast paced psychological crime thrillers.
