Publisher's Summary

Emma’s darkest secrets are buried in the past. But the truth can’t stay hidden for long.
Emma is a loving wife, a devoted mother…and an involuntary killer. For years she’s been hiding the dead body of the teacher who seduced her as a teen.
It’s a secret that might have stayed buried if only her life had been less perfect. A promotion for Emma’s husband, Alex, means they can finally move to a bigger home with their young son. But with a buyer lined up for their old house, Emma can’t leave without destroying every last trace of her final revenge....
Returning to the shallow grave in the garden, she finds it empty. The body is gone.
Panicked, Emma confesses to her husband. But this is only the beginning. Soon, Alex will discover things about her he’ll wish he’d learned sooner. And others he’ll long to forget.

Learn from my mistake

I listened to over half of this (enough that returning it feels like a cheat), hoping it would get better, but it didn’t. Learn from my mistake and save ten hours of your life. First, there’s the story: a young teenaged girl is sexually assaulted, and it’s never even really addressed. I can understand it not being dealt with in the context of the story, but it’s like the author didn’t quite understand that even a “consensual” relationship between a teen girl and a much older teacher is hugely problematic. Then, the girl (now a woman) is casually gaslighted by every other character in the book “for her own good,” except the ones who serve no discernible purpose in the story (there are several of those). I hated everyone, and they were not complex characters that were fun to hate. They were all just dreadful.

Finally, a minor quibble: the writing, ugh. “‘Why do you say that?’ she asked, seeking information.” Yeah. We know she’s seeking information. She asked a question. Give us some credit.

Would have rated four stars if narrator was better

The story kept me engaged but it is probably a better read than audio book due to the irritating narration by Ms Knowelden. She speaks with a soft, breathy, sometimes whispering voice. That is not good in an audiobook. It's sometimes hard to hear but even more distracting is the irritating sound of breathy tones through a mechanized device. I am always amazed when professionals do not know to project and even moreso that the technical staff does not catch this problem. Mr. West's narration was good.

Easy listener

If you could sum up Silent Victim in three words, what would they be?

-

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

-

Have you listened to any of Elizabeth Knowelden and Steve West ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

-

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

-

Any additional comments?

This was an easy listen on my commute to and from work. The narrators did a good job.
I particularly liked the approach to each chapter being narrated in the voice of the person it related to within the story and also the switching back and forth in time. One major disappointment - the ending was lame. The whole way through I kept thinking there was going to be a plot twist at the end that I wouldn't see coming. Unfortunately it was not the case and the story ended exactly the way it setup for throughout the plot. As someone who loves crime, mystery and thrillers it left me wanting. That's why I have given it an average score. Definitely nothing to write home about but if looking for a time filler this is your book.
