My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Many thanks to K L Slater, Bookouture and Net Galley for giving me a chance to read and review this wonderful book.
It’s no wonder that K L Slater is my favorite author, for those of you who have read her books knows what I am talking about and those who haven’t read any of her works, be warned that you are missing the best.There’s a quality in her writing that just holds you at the edge of your seat.No doubt about it. Most of her books can be read in a day just because it’s hard to keep it down even for a sec. The mystery may not be out of the world but the twists and turns that make it an excellent read is crafty.
The Silent Ones is more of a domestic thriller with each and every character making it more complicated than ever. I liked the writing and the tension that keeps mounting right from page 1 as 2 the sisters fight to clear their children’s name in a macabre world of social interrogation and people justice. There are sub plots and family dynamics in play that keeps the reader hooked. Avid readers can probably guess one part of the story but the why and the final twists comes as a huge surprise which is what K L Slater excels at.
5* worthy stars from me.
