The Silent Girls by Dylan Young is a very, very good audiobook. The intricately woven plot provides an excellent and suspenseful crime thriller that keeps its edge until the last pages. I connected with the main characters on our protagonist team, tasked with cleaning up an old cold-case mystery while monitoring a new one that appears connected to stave off mistakes made in the earlier case that sent an apparently innocent man to prison- or is he innocent?
This is one of those rare books that grabbed me from the first chapter and had me riveted. It is smart, savvy and extremely well-written, with keen attention to detail and a grittiness typically seen only in the most admirable suspense thrillers. This is one to admire and one to pick up right away, in my opinion. Tamsin Kennard’s narration was a pleasure to listen to, and this American listener thought her accents were ace. An easy five stars for The Silent Girls.

Great story. Captivating and just enough bread crumbs to make you think twice or maybe even three times as to "who done it". Great narrator, and I am a critic of narrators. So kudos and bring it on!
I very nearly gave up on this a couple of times in the first hour. I felt the start didn’t engage me at all. In the end though, I persevered and I’m glad I did. The characters became more interesting and the plot developed well. I’ll definitely give the next in ther series a try when it comes out.
The narration was pretty good but I’ve marked it down for some very odd mispronounciation of quite ordinary words and in one case a name. Careful editing should have picked these out.
