After reading the 1st two books I didn’t think a 3rd would be as good , but..........OMG it was brilliant and soooo hoping for the 4th. Waiting in anticipation from this amazing author and narrator who was also just as amazing. A truly must read.

Christopher would never hurt anyone. Not intentionally. Even after everything that’s happened, I still believe that... Christopher Harris is a lonely boy. A boy who has never fit into his family. Who has always felt something was missing from his life. Until one day, when he discovers a suitcase in his family’s attic, and a secret about his mother that changes everything.... Perfect for fans of The Girl on the Train, The Sister, and Apple Tree Yard.

Introducing Audible's Thriller of the Year: Silent Child by Sarah A. Denzil, performed by Joanne Froggatt. In the summer of 2006, Emma Price watched helplessly as her six-year-old son's red coat was fished out of the River Ouse. It was the tragic story of the year - a little boy, Aiden, wandered away from school during a terrible flood, fell into the river, and drowned. His body was never recovered. Ten years later Emma has finally rediscovered the joy in life...until Aiden returns.

A missing girl. A buried secret. From the acclaimed author of I Found You and the Richard & Judy best seller The Girls comes a compulsively twisty psychological thriller that will keep you gripped to the very last moment. She was 15, her mother's golden girl. She had her whole life ahead of her. And then, in the blink of an eye, Ellie was gone. Ten years on, Laurel has never given up hope of finding Ellie. And then she meets a charming and charismatic stranger who sweeps her off her feet.

I read this through the early hours until I fell asleep. So sad in places but totally gripping
A woman who would do anything for love, a teenage child goes missing. To give this man a baby, what extreme would she go to... A family broken by the loss of their child. If you enjoy psychological thrillers with twists and turns this is a Must read.

A very well told story of an abused child without graphics (which would have it unreadable for me). It was told so well of a child through to adulthood with her own children, her mind then can't cope as she realises her 4 year old son is the age when she was first abused. I never read this type of storyline but would definitely recommend.
