The Silent Children: A serial killer thriller with a twist (Detective Robyn Carter crime thriller series Book 4) (English Edition) Reviews
wFor me it was difficult to read. The Story itself could have been gripping, But unfortunately I was bored. Robyn Shows not much as a character.
I recommend this book with all honesty. Once again it's been a pleasure to read a book by Carol Wyer. A book for both sexes.Its a first-class thriller without too much blood. The mystery of her dead husband is still going on.
The Robyn Carter books have become one of my favorite series to follow. I always enjoy following along her and her team on the pursue of the murderer. In this book not only where there a lot of murders to solve, but Robyn is haunted by the memories of her fiance Davies. Somebody has sent her a picture of him, being very much alive, when he’s supposed to be dead. And this is not the only thing not adding up. After receiving flowers on Valentinsday, delivered to her work place, Robyn asks the one person she knows to be willing to help and being discreet - her cousin Ross. In the end the team solves the case (I had a blast to figure it out with them), Ross has some new about Davies (news that ease Robyn's anxiety) and there is a mystery man hiding in the bushes outside Robyn’s house. And me? I can’t wait for the next book to come out. Highly recommended series! I chose to read this book and all opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased. Thanks to NetGalley and Bookouture!
This is an amazing book. I found myself racing through it trying to figure out the why and who did it. Seemingly unconnected murders have connections that we don't see coming. There are mysteries in Robyn's past that are so tantalizing we can't wait for a resolution. There is a running story of characters that had me in tears every time it came up. This book arouses powerful emotions. Carol Wyer does such a fantastic job in making some truly terrible things understandable- without fanfare. In fact it took a second reading for me to understand some of the nuances in the book. This one has it all, murder, greed, desperation, childhood abuse, and fabulous supporting characters like Shearer & Ross, who I love! And over it all, Robyn, a strong woman DI who is a great role model for aspiring powerful women. Thanks Carol for a great read and a great ride. Can't wait for the next book!
If you’re not a huge Carol Wyer fan, you may want to skip this book. It’s the weakest entry in this police procedural series, because there are too many plot threads, subplots and miscellaneous sides crammed into the storyline. To that, add a multitude of characters.Speaking of cramming, the author smashes two teams of detectives—one led by DI Robyn Carter and the other by DI Tom Shearer—into one small office, forcing them to work cheek by jowl. IMHO, it’s an unnecessary plot-ploy to further muddle DI Carter, who is still trying to recover from two personal tragedies.There are lots of very lengthy flashbacks, and the flashback storyline is dark and depressing. Here’s the kicker: too much info is revealed via flashbacks, and from the info, I was able to guess who the murderer(s) was/were. Worse, l thought it was too early in the book for the author to have given up the culprit(s). I prefer authors who compel me to follow every clue and tick boxes to determine whodunnit.
DI Carter is often grumpy and gruff towards others often with little reason, and overly suspicious of the intentions of her co-workers, but she has a deep and painful back story. I've enjoyed getting to know there and see her gradually open up and let go throughout the series. I hope there are many more installments to come.As for the story itself, this one was pretty heavy stuff. There's a lot of pain, suffering, and betrayal here. At points I hurt for the characters, who are so realistically written and flawed, it's easy to forget they're not real. The plot got somewhat confusing because there was such a large cast of characters, so I definitely relied on Kindle's Xray feature more than usual, but that didn't take away from the story.There is only two downfalls I saw: it could use a bit more editing, and the ending was too abrupt. The editing mistakes aren't major though: mostly some missing or extra " ' "s, with there only being one at the end but not the beginning of speaking parts, and one randomly at the end even though no one was speaking. That threw me off on a few occasions.
Det. Carter is on a case again. This time people are dying all over and she cant figure out why. The book switches between THEN and NOW. But you wont find out until nearly the end that they are intertwined with two of the characters who had a big part in the story.You think you know the reason for these killings and who it was but you will be surprised because it is not what it seems. The book also shows us how abuse (both physical and verbal) of young children affects their lives when they are all grown. It also has a bit of greed thrown in there.It's a book I could not put down, therefore, a five star one.
I've just finished The Silent Children, and it was fantastic. Within a minute I'd purchased book 5. Of course I read the first 3 as well. I'm not much of a reviewer but as someone who reads slowly, I can forget where I am in a story and loose sight of the story or characters....But not in Carol's books. She provide character updates and reminders throughout that keep me fully involved. Great stuff. I can see the exact motions of the characters as they interact and banter. Also, as a US reader, these books giving me great lessons on how to speak the "British". I've learned so many new words!!!This is a particularly complex story. Lots of characters. Great mystery as to who some of them really are and a longing for the pieces to eventually fit.......Mystery at it's best. Loved it!!!
