Silent Victim Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
An Amazon Charts bestseller.
Emma’s darkest secrets are buried in the past. But the truth can’t stay hidden for long.
Emma is a loving wife, a devoted mother…and an involuntary killer. For years she’s been hiding the dead body of the teacher who seduced her as a teen.
It’s a secret that might have stayed buried if only her life had been less perfect. A promotion for Emma’s husband, Alex, means they can finally move to a bigger home with their young son. But with a buyer lined up for their old house, Emma can’t leave without destroying every last trace of her final revenge…
Returning to the shallow grave in the garden, she finds it empty. The body is gone.
Panicked, Emma confesses to her husband. But this is only the beginning. Soon, Alex will discover things about her he’ll wish he’d learned sooner. And others he’ll long to forget.
“Silent Victim is fast-paced, twisty, and it chilled me to the bone…I loved every minute of it!” —Robert Bryndza
“The very definition of a page-turner. Unreliable narrators mean you never quite know where you stand until it all builds to a richly satisfying climax. A fantastic psychological thriller.” —John Marrs
“Brilliantly gripping and deliciously creepy. Make sure you clear your day as you won't be able to put Silent Victim down!” —Sibel Hodge
“Dark, shocking, and utterly compelling.” —Mel Sherratt
From the Publisher
Nevertheless, her story, and the endearing compassion she shows for her loved ones, drew me in completely. I thought I could trust her, that she was a good person at heart—despite her admission from the first page that she killed her manipulative schoolteacher, who seduced her at the age of fifteen. Although Emma gets her revenge, Caroline Mitchell’s intricately drawn hints of suspicion made me feel that there was something hidden from view. A truth even more sinister than I thought—and one that made me doubt who the victim really was until the last page.
As a former detective who investigated violent crimes, Mitchell is no stranger to the most depraved elements of human nature—that much is clear in this Gone Girl-esque thriller. Incredibly suspenseful, with a fast-paced style that does not relent until the final word, Silent Victim vocalizes the dreaded question inside all of us: “What are my loved ones capable of?”
Sometimes murder isn’t the worst answer…

This is a very interesting and serious theme but the plot was very shallow and predictable and the characters one dimensional. Impossible to warm to any of them. The jumping back and forth in time left lots of gaps, a significant ommission being the details of the attempted murder.
Even though the book was somehow gripping (I needed to know how it would end) it was unsatisfying, poorly written and overly sensational.
Disappointing. Don't bother reading when there are so many similar, much better written, thrillers out there.
This book had me totally hooked and I am sure it will stay with me for a long time. I will definitely be purchasing more from this author and would recommend you give this book a read if you like a good psychological drama.
