Summary

A sinking boat is spotted off the South Coast. Waiting onboard is a grisly discovery. 

DCI Boyd, recently relocated from London to Hastings, is now with the East Sussex CID, and his first case is that of a local businessman and his new young wife, missing in the English Channel. All that remains of them is a grim scene aboard their half-submerged yacht and a digital trail of clues that could put Boyd and his daughter, Emma, in danger. 

Silent Tide is the first in the DCI Boyd series by award-winning author Alex Scarrow.

A great listen

A really great listen, brilliantly narrated by Aubrey Parsons. My one criticism was that I but a little disappointed it seemed to end so abruptly - but it won’t stop me trying the next in the series!

such a great listen

I listen to Audible while knitting ( I am a retired person and not able to get out much) Sometimes I get fed up with some books and just stop listening to them - NOT this one. The story gripped me and I loved the narration. ( I have to admit I do look for Aubrey Parsons). I do love a crime book that also makes me smile and laugh at times and this one did., I also liked that I could not work out the finale ahead of time. No spoilers - listen to this one, you wont regret it. It took me two afternoons and I was really looking forward to the second afternoon. Now I cant wait to listen to the second in the series.

Really enjoyable listen and great story

This was my first book by this author and narrator but it wont be the last. I really enjoyed the characterisations and loved Ozzie, you can tell the author has so much love for his dog - loved it.

Looking forward to seeing the other characters in the team develop and great to find yet another police procedural that I love.

Good Book

Enjoyed this book. I thought the narrator was going to be a problem bur once he had settled it was fine. The story is good and easy to follow. There is hardly any violence (always a winner for me). whilst not exactly cosy, but getting on that way. I'm off to find some more by the same author. So I must have enjoyed it!

Great new author

enjoyable listen, the new cast seem excellent for the DCI including the wonderful dog. the plot was sound with the twist that leave you guessing.
l found the narrator harsh on my ears, his characters' voices seemed confused at times and did spoil the story for me

Really Good Start for a Detective Series

My kind of detective story when I do not feel like concentrating too hard. I look forward to book 2.
Aubrey Parsons MAKES the AUDIBLE!

Not a bad start

Started well, but became a little unbelievable towards the end. Not sure whether I want to continue with that series.
