About the author

Sarah A. Denzil is a million copy best-selling author of psychological suspense novels. Her books include number one best seller Silent Child, which was a Goodreads Choice semi-finalist in 2017. Her books have been published in several different languages and have appeared on the Wall Street Journal best seller list.

Sarah lives in Yorkshire with her husband and cat, enjoying the scenic countryside and rather unpredictable weather. She loves to write moody, psychological fiction with plenty of twists and turns.

Summary

Emma, Aiden and Gina stand on the brink of a new life. After the trauma of Aiden’s abduction and return, they are slowly healing and returning to a fragile normality. Emma is desperate to protect her children, but the world is fascinated by Aiden, the silent child who is finally learning to speak for himself.

Against her better judgment, Emma allows her son to attend a talk show. Her worse nightmare comes true when her daughter, Gina, is snatched from the studio and a chilling game begins. 

Emma is convinced the answers lie in the darkest corners of the family’s past, and that Aiden must be able to work out the puzzle, if only he dare reach into the horrors of his memory.

But as the mystery deepens and Gina is still missing, the family must face a terrible question: is history repeating itself, or is there a new enemy to contend with?

Layered with emotion, and told from Aiden and Emma’s perspectives, the sequel to Silent Child is a dark and thrilling listen.

Sequel

Having read and enjoyed “Silent Child” I was reluctant to embark on a sequel as I rarely find them equal to the first. Not so this time. It is excellent. The same characters but now changed by circumstances.
Highly recommended

Excellent. Excellent. Excellent.

I had no idea there was a sequel to Silent Child until I had written the review and was about to download my next story. It was then that I saw this book and became curious. On reading the synopsis I admit that I exclaimed, "What? Now she loses her other child".
I tentatively purchased this book because I truly wanted to know 'what happens next' all the while deeply hoping it wouldn't shatter my perfect memory of the first book, I needn't have worried because this book was the perfect sequel.
In hindsight it now seems only right that the loose end from the first book - that I hadn't realised was so..."loose" - got sorted out.
I feel strangely proud of Aiden and how far he's come. There were a few eye-roll moments at the beginning of the book where Emma's "motherly love" felt as though it was smothering me, but she saw the error of her ways in the end.
These characters were so well written (and performed) that I feel they're real.
I highly recommend this book but make sure you listen to book 1, Silent Child, first. This isn't a stand-alone sequel if you get my drift, the first story is important in order to understand motivations and decisions in this book.

Another gripping book

Loved the first book of this series and the second was just as gripping. The narrators really bring the story to life. Just like the first book, I couldn't switch the book off listening whilst driving, cooking, cleaning etc.

I pre -ordered and couldn't wait for the book, it was worth the wait.

Look forward to more books by this author.

Pathetic!

Horrible storyline, to be avoided! The author has stretched the story from the last book in a disgusting manner. It was a waste of credit.

Uninspiring

Never really felt interested in the story, it failed to grab my imagination at all. Performances were adequate so I did finish the book. I feel that the first book in the series was enough

A bit far fetched

After the first book in the series, this plot line seemed abit too far fetched, surely no one can have that many nutcases out to get revenge on them, did sort of lose interest towards the end.

Suffers from the 2nd album syndrome

Having listened to and thoroughly enjoyed Silent Child book 1, I couldn't wait to hear book 2.
It is good in parts and it does complement Book 1 but it is so contrived and so unbelievable that it is very unsatisfactory. Its a shame as I wanted to love it.
Joanne Froggat and the cast are wonderful as always.

Terrible sequel

The ridiculous and unbelievable nature of the first book was fun and entertaining. This time around, it was just dumb. Save your credit. What a terrible book.

R-I-D-I-C-U-L-O-U-S

I listened to the first book and hoped like crazy this one would be better. It's not. It's so far-fetched. They story is redundant - same unstable people, similar MO's + killing +brain injuries. It's just silly. Silly. Silly. Silly.

The narrators were both good but the material is just Hallmark/Lifetime movie nonsense.

Stellar sequel

I was pleasantly surprised be the storyline and found the book intriguing. In addition, the narrators were flawless in their reading, intonation, and really captured the emotion and trauma of the events as they unfolded.

I highly recommend this read!

Not bad but not great

The first book The Silent Child is one of the best books I’ve ever listened to. This sequel had a lot to follow up and it came off more hallow with way less impact. I enjoyed it and am glad I listened. It was fun to get to hear more from Aiden. The narration was incredible.

A tiny bit exaggerated

I loved the narrators, Joanne Froggatt is the best to me.
I enjoyed the book mostly for this reason though.. found the plot a bit over the realistic edge.
