Book Description:

The Quiet Ones – a stunning psychological thriller from an international best-selling author.
“I found this book to be utterly compelling and difficult to put down.

What if you didn’t know where you came from?

Who am I?

This is the question Josie asks herself when a mysterious letter arrives. Then a brutal murder turns her world upside down.

To make sense of the present, Josie must go back to the start.

But who can she trust when no one knows the truth?

And who is the sinister stranger obsessed with her life?

The past is catching up with Josie and the consequences will be fatal …

If you like Angela Marsons, Kathryn Croft, Helen Durrant or Rachel Abbott you will be gripped by this brilliant and bracing psychological thriller.

My Thoughts:

The Quiet Ones is one seriously messed up and disturbing read!

To start with I really didn’t know what to expect from this story, I wouldn’t say I was altogether gripped to begin with, but it certainly had me intrigued. As I got further into the story though I started to jump to a lot of conclusions which were well and truly wrong and by the time I was half way through I could not put it down until I had finished it.

Josie is quite a strange character. She has a lot of issues to deal with, though to be fair it is pretty obvious that she isn’t dealing with them to well. To a certain extent I did feel sorry for her as life seems to certainly deal her a rubbish hand. To be honest I didn’t think her life could get any worse, but boy was I wrong!

It’s hard to say to much about the story with out giving to much away. What I will say though is that the author takes the reader on an extremely dark and twisted read. Some of the twists left me reeling but it certainly got the adrenalin flowing.

Many thanks to the author for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Goodreads rating 4/5 stars.

The Quiet Ones is available to purchase from Amazon.

  1. I haven’t heard of this one! I love it when a book totally throws you, as us bloggers read so many psychological thrillers you start to think you’ve seen it all and will figure anything out! So to be wrong-footed is fabulous. And it stops you getting bored of the genre – because I do worry I read too many psychological thrillers! I’ve started to invent psychological thrillers involving couples in the supermarket, ffs! #obsessed
