Summary

I'm alone in the dark. Please, can you find me?

Nine-year-old twins Abigail and Olivia vow never to be parted. But when Abigail goes missing from Blackwater Farm, DC Jennifer Knight must find her before it's too late.

Twin sister Olivia has been mute since Abigail's disappearance. But when she whispers in Jennifer's ear, Jennifer realizes it is Abigail's voice pleading to be found.

A damp and decaying house set in acres of desolate scrubland, the farm is a place of secrets old and new - and Jennifer must unravel them all in order to find the lost girl. But could Olivia's bond with her twin hold the key to finding Abigail? And can Jennifer break through her silence in time to save her sister's life?

Great story!

Any additional comments?

I listened to this on audio, rather than read it – I wish I had read it. I’ll admit, one of the reasons why is because the narrator grated on me. But the second reason? So that I could have got through it faster! I was desperate to know what the heck was going on, where little Abigail could be, and who had taken her. This is my first Caroline Mitchell read, but won’t be the last. The clever, subtle use of the paranormal is just enough to give the tale an extra edge, but isn’t over used at all.

Engrossing

Silent Twin starts out on the slow side introducing the characters involved. Once that is done the plot becomes more involved.

There are twists and turns and secondary stories. That are not fully revealed until the end.

Well worth the listen.

Good book. Got a bit boring in the middle but grew in intensity toward the end.

Invigorating, infectious, imperious. After getting into this author's writing style, it was hard to put the boo k down.

Held me until the end

Very good story. This was the first book in the series I listened to so now I need to go back and listen to the first two. You don't need to go through the first books before this one. It didn't sound like it carried from a previous storyline. If you like mysteries with some suspense, this book is for you. Caroline Mitchell is getting added to my list of favorite authors.

This book was very good, kept me wanting to hear more.
Would recommend it. Thought I'd have it figured out then I'd be wrong.
