Description

Five years rebuilding your life. Five words will destroy it again.

Mia Hamilton lived the perfect life with her husband, university teacher Zach, and their two-year-old daughter. But everything changed when Zach committed suicide on the same night one of his students vanished.

Five years later, just when Mia is beginning to heal, stranger Alison walks into her life, saying her husband didn't kill himself. Fragile, slight Alison leads Mia on a path into Zach's past, and Mia begins to think she never really knew her own husband.

As the secrets revealed get darker, Alison becomes harder to read, and Mia starts to wonder - why is Alison so keen to help? And then a piece of the puzzle appears in an impossible place, and Mia has to ask, is she losing her mind, or should she be afraid for her life?

An absolutely enthralling psychological thriller about obsession and buried secrets, with a brilliant twist. Fans of The Girl on the Train, Behind Closed Doors and Gone Girl will be hooked.

It was okay

There isn't really an ending. The story cuts out before we know what happens which I don't enjoy in a novel. I didn't get as into the story as most other audiobooks.

Gripping Story

I was drawn into this story and all of its twists and turns and couldn't wait for my next 'listen'. Although there were a couple of times where I really had to suspend disbelief in the narrative, it nonetheless hung together and led to an unexpected jolt of an ending.

Sometimes you feel like a nut...

I enjoyed this book. I love it when I can't figure out who the bad guy is, and this one did not disappoint.

Suspenseful but frustrating

Silent Lies, the well-written saga of a woman trying to heal after the death of her husband, has, from the very first words, an aura of suspense and underlying sadness. We get to know the protagonist slowly, and with misleading simplicity. I quite enjoyed the drawn out suspense.... and the unexpected results as new clues are discovered. #Audible1

I don't know what to say about this book

was annoyed by the characters and while the ending felt like a shock it also felt like a last minute plot twist on the writers part

Didn’t See it Coming!

I took a chance on this book as it was being compared to “Gone Girl” and the like, as they all seem to be lately. It hooked me from the beginning. Although for some reason, I cringed every time the daughters name, ‘Freya’ was mentioned, which was a lot. (I guess I just don’t care for that name or the way the narrator said it... ) Anyway, the story was told from three different characters’ perspectives and really kept my interest. I normally get bored with these type of books because I usually figure them out early on, but this was different. Although a bit improbable, and lacking oomph, the ending caught me somewhat by surprise. The most ‘Gone Girly’ of all the “Gone Girly” genre books I have read. A great value with the Kindle and Whisper-sync option on this one.

Wow!!!!!!!!

Riveting from beginning to end. Great plot development. The last hour continued to build in intensity toward the uncovering of cause of deaths, perpetrator and final twists. I listen to many suspense/murder mysteries so there are few that hold my interest throughput and keep me guessing. Superb narration!

Twisted and Satisfying Beginning, Middle and End.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book just as I've enjoyed other books by this author. It kept me guessing throughout the read at a calm and enticing pace. Never guessed the ending which was a completely unexpected twist, but measured well with the storyline and left me with my imagination to ponder multiple additional chapters. I look forward to many more books from this author.

Felt cheated by the ending....

The surprise ending was too far out in left field....didnt fit with the characterizations built throughout the story. Felt contived and out of sync.

Keeps you guessing -quite literally, until the end

I've listened to all of Kathryn Croft's books (except one) and I like them because she gets right to the story so you're never just waiting for it to "kick-in". “Silent Lies” is about a widow, Mia, in her late 30's with a 7-year-old daughter whose husband supposedly killed himself 5 years ago. She is finally moving on, is in a relationship with a great guy who also loves her daughter and has her own counseling/therapy practice. But... a new patient, Alison, comes to her claiming to know the truth about what happened to her husband, Zach, the night he killed himself. The discrepancy is that one of Zach's students went missing that night, but her blood was found all over the crime scene where he killed himself and her body was never recovered. Alison is a very strange girl in her mid-20's and Mia doesn't know what to think about her as all the information she gave her was false. The story is told in two perspectives, Mia (present day) and the student that went missing that night, Josie, via flashbacks. The end was unexpected but not shocking, and it all happened in the last 30 min or less of the book. Therefore, we don't get any additional insight on the characters and their motives. One odd thing that was somewhat forced into the story was Josie's past. She was beyond brutally attacked at age 18 - her home life was awful and her mother should win Worst Mother of the Year award. The author really hammered her life into the story and soooo much more detail was provided about this aspect of her life and very little about Zach. I thought there was going to be an outcome that heavily resolved Josie's situation but it was never fully addressed. There was a twist I predicted that would’ve been stellar, but it was not even close to what actually occurred. If anything, the story was a cliffhanger and the next book will be a follow-up to this one. This is definitely a stand-alone book, but in consideration of how much information was divulged about Josie's horrible life, it was not satisfying at the end. But that is only for her part of the story, most the book ends satisfactorily. It would have been more satisfying if it was longer and not just packed in the last minutes of the book. Overall though, it was a good read, paced nicely and held my interest and on par with Kathryn Croft’s other books.

On the fence

Ok book. Not worth the credit Nothing really special. But here are some thoughts floating around in my head as I'm listening: Confusing. Wait.. what? Is it over yet? Boring. That's not what people do. Unbelievable characters. Who acts like that? Why didn't you...?

I’m still not sure what to think.

This was my first Kathryn Croft novel. I am not too sure what to think. This wasn’t a bad story by any means. The characters were okay. I feel sorry for them all. Some character(s) are downright nuts. Then ending was awful. I finished it and immediately looked for the next one in the series only to discover there wasn’t one. It was left wide open. I am American and have listened to several books with a Brittish narrator that took place in London and the surrounding areas however I always have to have an adjustment period to get into it and get used to the accent and dialogue. I will give this author another try. The narrators did a great job. In my opinion all books are worth a credit because they can be returned so easily with no questions asked, what do you have to lose? Just because I thought this book was So-So doesn’t mean that the next person won’t love it.
