Silent Child
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 traumatized to speak, he raises endless questions and answers none. Only his body tells the story of his decade-long disappearance. The historic broken bones and injuries cast a mere glimpse into the horrors Aiden has experienced. Aiden never drowned. Aiden was taken. 

As Emma attempts to reconnect with her now teenage son, she must unmask the monster who took him away from her. But who, in their tiny village, could be capable of such a crime?

It's Aiden who has the answers, but he cannot tell the unspeakable.

This dark and disturbing psychological novel will appeal to fans of The Widow and The Butterfly Garden.

    3*I hate to give a low rating, especially to something that I really really wanted to like. It started off good, until I found myself not believing in the conversations, then it lead to a confusing phasing. The actions were just that, it didn't feel particularly exciting as I anticipat...

    This book is a prime example of why a good editor is so important. While reading (struggling) through the first two thirds of the story I was forced to endure the worst "poor me" attitude by the main character, even though her son has just returned after 10 years. The author managed to...

    Silent child is a marvelous book. A must read for fans of suspense and dark psychological thrillers, or any sort of horror in general.I admit, I read it simply because it was free on kindle unlimited, and because I had ran out of books at the time and it was a best seller. I downloaded...
