ABOUT THIS BOOK
If someone was in your house, you’d know … Wouldn’t you?
But the Hunter family are deaf, and don’t hear a thing when a shocking crime takes place in the middle of the night. Instead, they wake up to their worst nightmare: the murder of their daughter.
The police call Paige Northwood to the scene to interpret for the witnesses. They’re in shock, but Paige senses the Hunters are hiding something.
One by one, people from Paige’s community start to fall under suspicion. But who would kill a little girl?
Was it an intruder?
Or was the murderer closer to home?
Disturbing, horrifying, and shocking are just some of the words that I would use to describe THE SILENT HOUSE by Nell Pattinson but the most apt word I could use would have to be engrossing. I picked this one up as I settled down with a cup of tea one evening and next thing I knew it was after midnight and I was turning the last page - it is that good!
When a horrific crime is committed in the Hunter household, the community is shocked to its core. A little girl has been brutally murdered in the middle of the night and nobody knows what happened. Especially the family that was in the house as they are deaf and woke up to discover what had happened. But are they hiding something?
Enter Paige Northwood, the local interpreter, who cannot help but feel that there is so much more to this case than meets the eye. As Paige interprets for everyone involved and tries to uncover secrets among the deaf community, she obviously steps on someone's toes because suddenly she is getting targeted and whoever the killer is, will do whatever it takes to get away with murder ...
Imagine how terrifying it would be to wake up and discover that someone had come into your home and murdered one of your family. Add in the extra element of the family involved being deaf and this story opened my eyes to a whole different world of fear, and the importance of sign language and interpreters became apparent. Paige is a strong character and I really respected her dogged determination to find out the truth and not turn a blind eye to what she suspected. I had my own suspicions that switched throughout the story and there are plenty of twists and turns that will throw you off course along the way, and this book is sure to keep you hooked to the very end.
THE SILENT HOUSE by Nell Pattinson is a gripping and chilling story of obsession and anger and is sure to be a huge hit, just as it deserves.
