Summary

A downloadable audiobook edition of this new crime thriller, read by Daniel Weyman.

A body is found hanging on a hook above the canals of Amsterdam's old town. In a remote coastal village, a doll lies in the ashes of a burnt down house. But the couple who died in the blaze were childless. Did a little girl escape the blaze? And if so, who is she and where is she now?

Inspector Jaap Rykel knows that he must halt a clever and brutal murderer. And the investigation reveals two dark truths: Everybody in this city harbours secrets - and hearing those secrets comes at a terrible price...

No blame

Thrilling roller coaster of an end left me feeling almost breathless.

I knew nothing about Dutch police so interesting eye opener and also a not so touristic view of Amsterdam!

Excellent narration combined with a story like strands of rope being twisted together made for a tight, well-told story.

CLEVER, PACEY MURDER MYSTERY

Would you consider the audio edition of After the Silence to be better than the print version?

Can't really comment on that as I haven't read the print version, but the audible version was great!

What was one of the most memorable moments of After the Silence?

For me it was towards the end when all of the little sub-plots and bits and pieces started to come together and fall into place

Which character – as performed by Daniel Weyman – was your favourite?

The lead character, Rykel, was my favourite, decent, hardworking and doesn't always stick to the rules....

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, when they found out that the murdered detective had been abused himself by the villains in this story

Any additional comments?

Wasn't sure how I felt about this when I first started listening, but the pace and enjoyment increased the more I got into it...I look forward to the second instalment.
