Silent Victim By Caroline Mitchell Book Review

 

Silent victim by Caroline Mitchell is one hell of a suspenseful read, the moment I started it, I got sucked into the story. I finished it in a few days.

 

The story starts with Emma who just killed a man, Luke and she’s going to bury him. The book shifts to years later. Emma is married to Alex and they have a four-year-old son. Told in the perspective of Emma, Alex, and Luke. It goes from the present to past where we learn that Emma was seduced by Luke who was her teacher (oh my!)

 

The problem is Alex got a new job promotion and they are going to move to Leeds. Emma has to remove Luke’s corpses because they are going to put the house up for sale. The body is gone.

 

The story has a great build up with twists where you don’t know what’s going to happen next. The characters were well developed and unlikable but this a thriller no surprise there. One of the best reads of this year! Buy the book
