Detective Sergeant Matthew Ryan wants to clear the name of his former boss, who stands accused of official corruption. But before he can do so, his boss disappears. Did he escape from police custody, or was he kidnapped? Or did something even worse happen to him?
The Silent Room has everything a good thriller should have—compelling characters, a gripping plot and storyline, superb pacing, and a strong sense of place. In addition it has heart, something many thrillers sorely lack. Add some truly scary villains, vast uncertainty about whom to trust, and a loudly ticking clock, and we have ourselves a thriller that will grip readers from the first pages and never let go.
Disclaimer: I was provided an ARC from NetGalley & Minotaur Books in exchange for my honest review.
I have discovered so many amazing authors in the last few months. It’s one of the many perks of being a book blogger! I was thrilled when I got the email from NetGalley letting me know I was going to receive a copy of The Silent Room to read and review. I will definitely read more books by Mari Hannah in the future!
The first thing I want to discuss is the dialect. The dialect is a little different than it is in America. Sometimes I had a hard time understanding what the characters were talking about. I had no idea what a lay-by was, but I had to remind myself to focus on the most important parts of the book. Once I did that, I was able to keep up the pace.
The dialect had absolutely no impact on my rating. Just FYI…a lay-by is an area on the side of the road where vehicles can stop. Where I’m from, it’s called an emergency lane. Knowing what a lay-by was made no impact on the story. If you don’t understand what something is, don’t get caught up on it, just move along and you will be fine.
The Silent Room was a thought-provoking thriller. What if someone you loved or was very close to was accused of a serious crime they claim they didn’t commit? Would you believe them, even if the evidence showed otherwise? Would you risk your life and job to clear their name? What would you do?
Most people would like to say they would help, but when things start to get messy and their own lives are at risk, they may not feel the same way. Luckily, Detective Inspector Jack Fenwick has Detective Sergent Matthew Ryan, Grace Ellis and Frank Newman working on his behalf to uncover the truth. Will they find Jack in enough time? Will they discover the truth before its too late? What will happen in this fast-paced, action-packed thriller?
I guess you will have to get your copy of The Silent Room to find out! I don’t want to give away too many details! There are so many twists and turns in this book and it’s filled with surprises that left me completely shocked! I want you to be able to experience the same thing!
If you love a heart-racing, page-turning, thought-provoking thriller, you will love The Silent Room!
Thank you for taking your time to read my review!
