Firstly, many thanks to Carol Wyer, Netgalley and Bookoutre for the opportunity to preview this book. I wasn't immediately aware that this is one of a series and, although I'm looking forward to reading more by this author, this can easily be read as a stand alone thriller. It's a well written complex drama that involves serial killing, abuse and a missing (dead)? character. Yet, it's never depressing, rather I was hooked on the complexity of the story and characters and it held me until the end. A really good read!

So after waiting patiently for The Silent Children to arrive, I’m like a kid on Christmas Eve, desperate to open it, but know once I have that element of delicious surprise has gone and I have to begin, sometimes the waiting is almost as good as the story. Detective Robyn Carter is one of my favourite book characters ever, I have grown to admire her, love her and feel the need to know what is happening in her life. So much has happened during the previous stories in this series .. now we are on book four. After the ending that shook my world in the previous book, I did wonder how Carol could possibly keep delivering the sheer intensity, but she does. Once again Robyn is at the helm of murder investigations with very few clues, when more than one body is discovered it’s up to her to figure out if there is a link. The content of The Silent Children is dark, cloying and not necessarily an easy read. I like the mix of deep despair during working hours which then switches to Robyn’s personal life. Valentine’s Day rears it’s head in this one along with a possible surprise. For anyone who has read them all you will understand the complexity of Davies and the effect he has on her. I was delighted to see Schrodinger arrive I think that could be just what is needed in Robyn’s life .. I think I have made it clear during previous reviews how much I love this series, so all I need to say is read it. I thought I was going to have a fairly sedate wait until the next book but oh no Carol once again leaves us with an ending that needs answers .. aaargh. Just don’t keep me waiting too long please. Thanks as always to the author, publisher and netgalley. I read and reviewed voluntarily.
