Longlisted for the John Creasey (New Blood) Dagger 2021

A missing woman

30 years ago, in the suffocating heat of a Sydney summer, the Greens' next-door neighbour Mandy disappeared without a trace.

A cold case reopened

In 1997, in a basement flat in Hackney, Isla Green is awakened by a call in the middle of the night: her father is under suspicion of Mandy's murder.

A devastating secret

How well does Isla know her father? Is he capable of doing something terrible? And is there another secret in their community - a conspiracy of silence which stretches deep into Australia's past?

I am an unmitigated fool for a novel set in Australia as these novels have populated my favorites list with high frequency for the last couple of years. The Silence was no exception. Focusing on some of the darker... More
