'All you have to do is find out why Harry is prepared to blame an innocent man. That's the thread. Follow it. You'll reach the Silent Ones. This is your way - our way - of making a difference.'

With this challenge from Father Edmund Littlemore, Anselm returns to the Old Bailey to fight the most difficult and troubling case of his life. The man in the dock is Littlemore himself. He is charged with grave offences against Harry Brandwell who, it seems, is both a victim and a liar. But he's the only link to these others who've chosen silence over their right to justice.

Unknown to Anselm, Robert Sambourne, a journalist, has been investigating Littlemore's background. And he's a man with a troubled past, always on the move, from Boston in the USA to Freetown in Sierra Leone, finally running from a London police station rather than explain himself. More disturbingly, Robert uncovers details of a carefully planned scheme to entice Anselm back into court, exploiting his reputation for honesty to secure a shock acquittal.

Meanwhile Harry Brandwell - abused, abandoned and betrayed - has decided to take matters into his own hands.

The Silent Ones examines the one crime that Church, State and Family thought they could hide in their own best interests; Anselm's return is a compelling novel about the anatomy of silence, the courage of victims and the redemptive power of public justice.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The Silent Ones, a superior work with interlocking elements of courtroom drama, psychological study and corruption expose, might best be called a moral thriller. Mr. Brodrick...tells his complex story from several characters' points of view. Deeds, motives, sins and crimes are all up for analysis from various angles. The result is an unpredictable work, by turns shocking, poignant, enlightening and inspired * Wall Street Journal *
Another masterpiece * The Lady *
Secrets and lies by omission play out amid expertly executed plot lines and deeply thought-provoking situations . . . Sophisticated prose elevates this timely, painful tale * Publishers Weekly *
