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.

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.
