"Silent Child is a unique book, a shining light of hidden horrors and unbearable tension in a genre where it is always difficult to stand out. Emma's slow descent into hell from the moment her son disappears feels real enough to make you hold onto your loved ones that little bit tighter. Sarah A. Denzil masterfully carries the reader alongside Emma on a tortured mental journey: theories, conspiracies and increasingly justified paranoia as suspicion falls on everyone she has ever held dear. Along with Emma, you find yourself pointing the proverbial finger of accusation at a series of characters who once seemed safe. A visceral, darkly atmospheric listen that will make your heart beat, your mind race and your spine tingle." - Gabriel, Audible Editor

"A good audiobook for me is one that takes me on a ride that I never could have imagined, and Silent Child did exactly that. Sarah A. Denzil weaves a tale that starts with heartbreak, adds mystery and suspense, and ultimately becomes a thriller. The writing is superb and it created a blockbuster movie in my mind as I listened. Silent Child had me at the edge of my seat the entire time, and I even fell off a few times." - Sean, Audible Editor

"The premise is shocking and it compels you to find out where Sarah A. Denzil will take the story. But, where I think the author is truly genius is in the way she supports the central plot with some heartbreakingly real and genuinely flawed characters that were so obviously as fully developed in Denzil's mind as the thrilling hook that makes you choose the book in the first place. There's so much more to this one than first meets the eye." - Alexandra, Audible Editor

Description

Winner of Audible's 2017 Narrator of the Year Award

Introducing Audible's Thriller of the Year: Silent Child by Sarah A. Denzil, performed by Joanne Froggatt.

In the summer of 2006, Emma Price watched helplessly as her six-year-old son's red coat was fished out of the River Ouse. It was the tragic story of the year - a little boy, Aiden, wandered away from school during a terrible flood, fell into the river, and drowned. His body was never recovered. Ten years later Emma has finally rediscovered the joy in life. She's married, pregnant, and in control again...until Aiden returns.

Too traumatised to speak, he raises endless questions and answers none. Where has he been? What happened to him on that rainy afternoon? And now that he's back, whom can he trust?

At Audible we love listening to crime books. But every so often one comes along that we think is truly special. An Amazon Kindle number one best-seller, Sarah A. Denzil's Silent Child is taking Audible HQ by storm. In an Audible Exclusive production, Joanne Froggatt (Mrs Bates, Downton Abbey) delivers a powerhouse performance that will keep you gripped until the very last second.

Wish it'd been even longer!

This was my first audiobook and boy, what an experience! I love reading thrillers, they're my favourite, but this brought the story to a whole new level! I plowed through the 9+ hours nearly non-stop - and wished it had been even longer! - because they story was so gripping and was made all the more compelling by Joanne's emotionally charged narration. (Joanne is a gifted dramatic performer and has set an exceptionally high standard for me against which I'll be comparing all future audiobooks!) Sarah Denzil is a master storyteller whom I'm thrilled to have discovered! The Silent Child is absolutely worth your time and money!

Edge of your seat but disturbing subject.

Hard to recommend this book because of the disturbing subject matter. The reading performance is amazing and the story suspenseful but if I’d know the subject matter I would not have bought it.

Gripping

Joanne Froggatt is brilliant. I listened as late as I could last night and finished this morning. Denzil’s dialogue is fluid and she wields her descriptive powers with perfect efficiency. Full marks.

Silent Child Swept Me Away For Two Days

I found this audiobook engrossing. The author took me places I did not expect or wish to go, and she worried me that I would not be able to sustain my interest--but I certainly did.

In short, a young child, Aiden Price, age six, disappears from his school after a terrible rainstorm. Ten years later he is found wandering the woods nearby. He is reunited with his mother but apparently due to sustained trauma, refuses to speak or provide any information about his captor or where he had been for the ten years.

I don't want to give away any more information. I just want to add that if the subject interests you, get the book and set aside plenty of listening time. You have nothing to lose and lots to enjoy.

The narrator does a bang-up job portraying Aiden's mother. If you were a fan of Downton Abbey, you will recognize her voice immediately--I promise you.

Joanne Froggatt 💕

I rarely find a book I really like on Audible. Narration is a huge thing. Joanne Froggatt was simple AMAZING. I loved her on Downton Abbey. That said, her telling of the story was a beyond plus.

I love Gone Girl (like most people) and Karin Slaughter and Mary Kubica (who has seemed to drop off a bit just like B.A. Paris. However, I love a suspense book. Love.

I really liked this book. It did keep me guessing and normally most books put it out there from the beginning who the bad guy is, but tell you the story surrounding it. This book did keep me thinking...but wait, it's not that person? Wait? So it is a very good book and I'm stingy in my recommendations. I get bored easily and I like twisty books.

Would I have liked the book enough to read it? Yes, but the narration was off the charts great.

I highly recommend this book if you like suspense. I've been a bit bored with my Audible picks lately thinking if I read them, I probably could finish them. Good narration keeps me hanging on and bad narration just makes me mad. How do some of these people get hired?

Book...yes.
Narration...no doubt. Amazing. A+++++++

Good in-between-books book

I had no idea what to listen to next and chose this one based on star ratings and amount of reviewers. It was a good book to fill the space with after a string of comedies I had listened to.

Very early on in this book, in the first few chapters, I suspected something about a character and I was half right. There is also a twist of sorts that I didn't guess at all. It wasn't gripping exactly, but I did want to know whodunit. If you're into these types of stories - "psychological thrillers" - then it will at least have you wanting to know what happens next.

The narrator did a really great job emoting for each character and making you really feel the frustrations of the characters. Though I believe the volume/mix could have been better uniformed so that when she yelled it wasn't so loud that I had to turn it down and when she whispered it wasn't so quiet I had to turn it up.

My only real critiques of this book are that there is a character in the end that (I think) deserved WAY worse and it was frustrating to not see better justice done, and the story itself could have been a tad stronger. Wish I understood what is making me feel that way but I'm not sure, so maybe take that with a grain of salt. But like I said, the author did have me wanting to know how it ended and I did look forward to driving so I could finish it.

Could not stop listening!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Loved every second of it. I wanted it to go on longer even after the exciting conclusion! The characters are well written, the suspense starts from the get-go, and builds and builds throughout. There are many twists and turns, keeping you on your toes.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Aiden who has been through hell as a child, who has so much pain and hurt locked up inside him, unable to express himself.
Rob, the ex husband who turns out toby the most faithful, loving and protective of all the characters.

What does Joanne Froggatt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I actually chose the book because of her narration and was not disappointed. I loved her in Downton Abbey and she is an amazing narrator. Unlike most others I have heard, who read the book, with some inflections and "voices" here and there, Joanne acts it. She has so much meaning in her voice you can almost see her acting the part in a movie. Her voices and accents are natural and not forced, and she puts huge amount of feeling into every sentence.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending, the ending, the ending!! Can't give it away. But one spoken sentence has never moved me so much!

Any additional comments?

Read it. It will not disappoint!

Edge of my seat the whole way!

Would you consider the audio edition of Silent Child to be better than the print version?

Yes. The narrator kept the tension tight. I could not stop listening.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was her missing son.

Have you listened to any of Joanne Froggatt’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, this is my second book and I appreciate her ability to weave a story that includes wonderful visual imagery woven through the storyline.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was scared for her son, scared for her, and aware of the danger of judging others, which seems to be a running theme in this book.

Any additional comments?

Red this book, or listen to this book... it will stick in your mind. Days later you will wonder what's happening in the lives of her characters.

Tour de force by narrator Joanne Froggatt!

Silent Child is a very, very dark psychological thriller, the kind that can cause some to have nightmares. It is certainly not for everyone. However, as I try to decide whether listening was worthwhile, I must give the author credit for writing a compelling novel. And the narrator is fantastic.

Wow. Not only did I stay up WAY too late to finish this, but I also called my husband every few hours to bring him up to speed on what had happened. He got just as caught up as I did! Also, probably best narrator I've ever heard. Phenomenal all around!

A Fantastic Listen...

I was skeptical when I read the reviews from other people about this book. But it turned out to be probably one of my all time favorites. There were unexpected twists & turns - even the twists that were expected were exciting.

I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of this story. And Froggatt was spectacular! I remember her from Downton Abbey, but she completely transformed herself for this Audible production. She was engrossing & theatrical. Amazing.

I highly recommend this to anyone who loves a good "whodunit".

Could NOT stop listening

I normally never take the time to rate books and go through about three a week. Don't start this one if you've got a busy schedule ahead. You'll end up staying up late to listen! I'll look for more from this author now. It was really good.
