My Rating: 5 Stars Emma’s darkest secrets are buried in the past. But the truth can’t stay hidden for long. Emma is a loving wife, a devoted mother…and an involuntary killer. For years she’s been hiding the dead body of the teacher who seduced her as a teen. It’s a secret that might have stayed buried if only her life had been less perfect. A promotion for Emma’s husband, Alex, means they can finally move to a bigger home with their young son. But with a buyer lined up for their old house, Emma can’t leave without destroying every last trace of her final revenge…
Returning to the shallow grave in the garden, she finds it empty. The body is gone.
Panicked, Emma confesses to her husband. But this is only the beginning. Soon, Alex will discover things about her he’ll wish he’d learned sooner. And others he’ll long to forget.

“Silent Victim is fast-paced, twisty, and it chilled me to the bone…I loved every minute of it!” —Robert Bryndza
“The very definition of a page-turner. Unreliable narrators mean you never quite know where you stand until it all builds to a richly satisfying climax. A fantastic psychological thriller.” —John Marrs
“Brilliantly gripping and deliciously creepy. Make sure you clear your day as you won't be able to put Silent Victim down!” —Sibel Hodge
“Dark, shocking, and utterly compelling.” —Mel Sherratt
