    The Silent Girls

    Wonderful intricate plot. Lots of tension propelling the reader to be involved in Anna's chase after the killer. A super thriller and read. I am now a fan.

    Great new series with Dynamic Female Lead

    The Silent Girls by Dylan Young is the 1st in the Detective Anna Gwynne crime series. Note that it was originally entitled Come Out to Play. First, let me thank NetGalley, the publisher Bookouture, and of course the author, for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. OMG! I loved it! Absolutely a page turner! Fast-paced mystery with a strong female lead. Anna, working closely with her friend, boss, and mentor DCI Ted Shipwright, has been working cold cases with a small team. She seems to be making headway with convicted killer Hector Shaw, who has taken a shine to her, and may be willing to tell her where the body of a young girl is buried, thereby finally giving the victim’s family closure. Shaw may know much more than he is willing to share, and has his own agenda. When a kidnapping occurs which is identical to a case from 18 years ago, the cold case team must co-ordinate with the detectives working this fresh one, and this time without Shipwright. It looks like the wrong person may have spent the last 17 years in jail, after being railroaded into a confession by the police, and false information planted. It looks like this may happen again if Anna can’t find the real killer in the original crime. But time is running out, and some of the old evidence, witnesses and police are no longer available. Anna may have stumbled onto something much more extensive than anyone knew. If she doesn’t solve it soon, her own life may be in danger. Anna Gwynne is what a strong woman should look like. She has the strength of her convictions, but is still humble. The ability to sympathize and empathize with people, and the words to knock others for a loop. She is determined to find the truth. Anna Gwynne is my new hero! Dylan Young created a wonderful new detective in Anna Gwynne. He had her test INTJ on the Myers Briggs scale, and then stuck true to the findings. I was really impressed. Although an introvert, she didn’t hesitate to stand up and be heard when it was needed. As well, Young created a team around her who had faith in her abilities, but wasn’t afraid to ask questions. The writing was precise. The pace and plot of the story was great, with enough twists that you weren’t sure who was responsible until close to the end. I guess wrong a couple of times throughout the book. Loved that! I am really looking forward to the next in the series. Highly recommend this book!

    The Deadly Silence

    Unbelievably sinister and the talented writer deserves all the credit for his descriptive detail that made it almost impossible to stop the page turning till the bittersweet end. Wow!
