Summary

Emma, Aiden and Gina stand on the brink of a new life. After the trauma of Aiden’s abduction and return, they are slowly healing and returning to a fragile normality. Emma is desperate to protect her children, but the world is fascinated by Aiden, the silent child who is finally learning to speak for himself.

Against her better judgment, Emma allows her son to attend a talk show. Her worse nightmare comes true when her daughter, Gina, is snatched from the studio and a chilling game begins. 

Emma is convinced the answers lie in the darkest corners of the family’s past, and that Aiden must be able to work out the puzzle, if only he dare reach into the horrors of his memory.

But as the mystery deepens and Gina is still missing, the family must face a terrible question: is history repeating itself, or is there a new enemy to contend with?

Layered with emotion, and told from Aiden and Emma’s perspectives, the sequel to Silent Child is a dark and thrilling listen.

Sequel

Having read and enjoyed “Silent Child” I was reluctant to embark on a sequel as I rarely find them equal to the first. Not so this time. It is excellent. The same characters but now changed by circumstances.
Highly recommended

couldn't stop listening

the second book was just as magical as the first. I couldn't stop listening. I was mesmerised by the story, the twists and the sheer weight of the story. I was thinking that the second book would have been too far fetched but nope it was pure genius. with everything that goes on in the world, these two books have really opened my eyes to what could happen and that thought process of the victims.

Great sequel

Great action packed sequel which is worth a listen if you enjoyed the first “Silent Child”.
I love the main character and her determination and enjoyed meeting the other characters again. Plenty of action and some more of the background is uncovered. Loved it.

Excellent. Excellent. Excellent.

I had no idea there was a sequel to Silent Child until I had written the review and was about to download my next story. It was then that I saw this book and became curious. On reading the synopsis I admit that I exclaimed, "What? Now she loses her other child".
I tentatively purchased this book because I truly wanted to know 'what happens next' all the while deeply hoping it wouldn't shatter my perfect memory of the first book, I needn't have worried because this book was the perfect sequel.
In hindsight it now seems only right that the loose end from the first book - that I hadn't realised was so..."loose" - got sorted out.
I feel strangely proud of Aiden and how far he's come. There were a few eye-roll moments at the beginning of the book where Emma's "motherly love" felt as though it was smothering me, but she saw the error of her ways in the end.
These characters were so well written (and performed) that I feel they're real.
I highly recommend this book but make sure you listen to book 1, Silent Child, first. This isn't a stand-alone sequel if you get my drift, the first story is important in order to understand motivations and decisions in this book.
