I am not a suspense person. I am a "life is scary enough" person but I had read Lisa Scottoline's non-fiction and loved it so I wanted to read the type of book she is most renowned for. I don't want to say anything that gives anything away. It was a great story. The scenario of how things began was a little too realistic when you have kids that age which is what made it so suspenseful. It feels like what happened at the beginning of the book could happen. The story brings up the interesting point of how concerned we are with our kids' futures to the exclusion of what is actually happening in the present. Is what we imagine we want for their future more important than anything that's going on right now? But beyond that, it was just an incredibly suspenseful story that you just can't put down.

I received this book as a First Reads free copy. I loved it and it was a great opportunity to read Lisa Scottoline's fiction for the first time. I will definitely read more.

4/14/2014 A friend and patron at our library has read ALL of Lisa Scottoline's books but when she read this one she said it was her best ever. She read it in 3 hours and is suggesting it to all of her friends who also love it. She wanted me to add that to the review for her.

Scottoline's Best Book Thus Far- A Suspense Thriller!

As I began KEEP QUIET, this riveting thriller, via audiobook (highly recommend with narrator Ron Livingston), planning on a few chapters before bedtime, (you know just to relax and unwind)….KEEP QUIET hooked me within the first 10 minutes!

No way could I sleep, with my heart pounding, waiting to see what would happen next to this family, hanging on by a thread, in this “on the edge of your seat “ (or bed), intense page-turner! I was glued to my iPod into the wee hours of the morning before finishing. KEEP QUIET is Lisa Scottoline’s best book yet. She is at the TOP of her game with another winner.

Having read many of Lisa’s books over the years, her last book, DON’T GO, (2013) 5 stars (highly recommend) and her latest KEEP QUIET (2014) a definite 5 stars+. Loving her fresh style and subject material, as an engaging and powerful read for a broad audience of teens, parents, adults-- men, and women, offering cutting edge topics, and trendy social media integration. (Love her strong titles with action words).

The mixture of law, family drama, flawed characters, and a legal thriller, combined with moral and ethical dilemmas – quite appealing.

Similar to Carla Buckley’s DEEPEST SECRET (great book), with the same premise of protecting one’s family with a hit and run accident; however, KEEP QUIET had its own unique identity and plot with a different twist, strong characters and emotion. When a cover up begins, things begin to unravel when a stranger threatens to expose creating another yet mystery.

How far would you go to protect your child? How one quick decision to bond with your teen could turn on a dime and ruin the lives of many. This realistic storyline could easily happen to any parent or teen, and Lisa tackles the issues, with emotion and clarity. A fast-paced psychological suspense dramatic novel with the unraveling of one family to the ultimate redemption.

Ideal for book clubs and discussions-- "what it means to be a parent and how far to go, to protect your child and family."

    A page turner with a twist at the end

    Keep Quiet is an interesting story about a father and son bonding for the wrong reasons. It does make you want to get through the book so you can find out how everything works out.
