A special thank you to Bookouture and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Caroline Mitchell delivers a chilling and gripping psychological thriller of dark secrets: THE SILENT TWIN(Detective Jennifer Knight #3)— a fast-paced emotional tale full of twists and turns, which will keep you on the edge- of- your-seat.
Set in Blackwater Farm, DC (a haunted house), we meet Abigail and Olivia- nine-year-old twins. Abigail goes missing. Joanna and Nick, parents. She was out there somewhere, lost and scared in the wilderness. If she was still alive. At just nine years old, she was blinded by bad vision, and no witnesses to her disappearance.
Missing children were not an uncommon occurrence in the UK. Over 140,000 children go missing each year.
DC Jennifer Knight made a silent promise. She is tenacious. She knows this situation does not add up. One way or another, she would bring Abigail home. Assigned as a Family Liaison Officer, she finds herself immersed in the middle of a dysfunctional family full of dark secrets at Blackwater Farm.
One weird crazy family. Joanna the mother is acting like the perfect wife. Nick, a Police Sergeant, seems genuinely concerned. Fiona, the housekeeper seems to be holding the family together.
A crumbling house creepy with darkness and spirits. An unraveling. A monster. Strangeness. Secrets. Creepy. Lies. Diary entries. Olivia is suffering from selective mutism since Abigail vanished. A race against time to find Abagail and to solve the mystery—and the dark family secrets. Fans of Mark Edwards will enjoy.
Complex. Sad. Atmospheric, gritty, and dark—an edgy gripping crime psychological thriller, cop procedural, with a supernatural twist. Looking forward to reading the previous books in the series--my first book by the author. One scary read! Would not recommend reading late at night—guaranteed no sleep. Will remind you of the movie, The Conjuring.
