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 realises 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?
A darkly gripping, page-turning thriller that will enthrall fans of Rachel Abbott, Alex Marwood’s The Wicked Girls and Mark Edwards.
The Silent Twin is the third book in the Jennifer Knight series. Even though it is the third in the series, I actually think it works quite well as a stand alone. Be warned though, after reading this you will certainly want to go back and read the other two.
In each of Jennifer’s cases, I really don’t think that they could get any harder but yet again Jennifer is faced with another case that I think not only mentally and physically takes it out of her, but emotionally also.
It must be so hard to have a child go missing but I think when it’s a twin it must be even worse for the other sibling. A lot of identical twins seem to have some sort of telepathy or a strong connection between each other. Jennifer tries using this connection to help her find where Abigail is. Unfortunately for Jennifer it just leaves her feeling frustrated.
Right from Abigail going missing it is obvious that there is something weird going on with the twins parents. The actions between the couple don’t seem to be the normal reactions and I was dying to get to the bottom of it and find out what secrets and lies they seemed to be harbouring.
The Silent Twin is very much an edge of your seat read. The story starts off at a steady pace which then escalates as time is running out which had me breathless and feeling frantic.
The author has certainly ensured a highly enjoyable and gripping reading experience with plenty of twists and turns. I thought I was so clever thinking I had it all worked out for the author to come and rip the rug right from under me, more than once!
A brilliant crime series with a twist of the supernatural.
