Publisher's Summary

In the crisp, early morning hours, the police are called to a suspected murder at a farm outside a small English village. A beautiful young woman has been found dead, blood all over the cottage she lives in. At the same time, police respond to a reported female suicide, where a car has fallen into a local quarry.

As DCI Louisa Smith and her team gather the evidence, they discover a link between these two women, a link which has sealed their dreadful fate one cold night, under a silent moon.

Told in a unique way, using source documents that allow readers to interpret the evidence alongside DCI Louisa Smith and her team, Under a Silent Moon is an unsettling and compulsively readable novel that will keep you gripped until the very last page.

    "Enjoyable and gripping!"
    If you could sum up Under a Silent Moon in three words, what would they be?

    Beautifully written and pacey.


    What about Lucy Price-Lewis’s performance did you like?

    Consistently good performance which allowed the listener to concentrate on the novel without being distracted by any aspect of the narration.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I have now listened to all of Elizabeth Hayes' books. There are two things they each have in common. Firstly, they are elegantly and concisely written, allowing the stories to pop along at a good pace. Secondly, no two so far are alike and they each have unexpected aspects littered through them. This is probably not her best, but is still a five star read/listen in the genre.

    "Too fast narrated"

    I almost had to start the audiobook again after the first hours listening, because the narrator read it so fast it was hard to follow. And like many other narators she never paused between scenery. One moment I was listening to the police talking over the case, next moment we were off to other caracters talking together.
    This book can not be recommended for driving and listening.
    Otherwise the story is good, well written.

    Story
    "I LOVE BRITISH POLICE MYSTERIES - 4.5"
    What made the experience of listening to Under a Silent Moon the most enjoyable?

    One of my favourite genres, possibly because I used to watch them with Dad on the tele when I was quite small and there was often one at the picture theatre as an accompaniment to the main feature which we often enjoyed more than the main. Elizabeth Haynes books are believable, probably because of her background, and she is a good writer who fleshes out her characters well and makes them very human, indeed. I loved the duel plots here and kept me wondering whether they were linked or not all the way until the end.


    What other book might you compare Under a Silent Moon to and why?

    I don't particularly like comparing authors with each other as they all have something different to offer the reader, however, I feel I can compare other books written by the same author and with Elizabeth Haynes, I feel she's just getting better and better.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    well, I guess the most memorable one was when Inspector Andy Holland was seduced by the sinister but beautiful Susan and made to perform graphically detailed S&M with her; "oh my" a step above even Shades of Grey......!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    "steamy"


    Any additional comments?

    thoroughly recommend to those who enjoy British Detective murder mysteries; a good thriller with condiments of erotica...
