    The premise of this book alone is extremely enticing and original, which means my expectations were high from the start, but boy, do the authors deliver There are three main facets to this story 1 It is a whodunnit mystery thriller, where the main protagonist, detective Valerie Crowther tries to track down a serial killer who s targetting deaf students at a world renowned university.2 There is

high from the start, but boy, do the authors deliver There are three main facets to this story 1 It is a whodunnit mystery thriller, where the main protagonist, detective Valerie Crowther tries to track down a serial killer who s targetting deaf students at a world renowned university.2 There is a worldwide virus known as Monkey Flu which is killing hundreds of thousands of people The U.K has escaped the epidemic until there is a breakout at the very uni Crowther is conducting her investigations, so the school soon becomes quarantined and shut off from the outside world.3 The story is a great insight into the deaf community.Combining these three facets makes for an exciting and interesting read At first, I was a little cautious at embarking on an 800 page story, but I needn t have worried It doesn t feel like a long book at all, and the authors are so adept at breaking up the scenes and the various tangents, and pacing it so well, that I didn t feel like I was reading a mammoth book at all I d thought it would probably take me a couple of months to get through it, but I raced through this in a week Like all clever and well written thrillers, there are enough cliff hanging chapters and side stories which made me think I d just read onechapter and then before I knew it, I d read another fifty pages So don t let the length of this book put you off at all it s exactly the right length that the book needs to be especially when it s effectively combining two stories in one the outbreak of the virus and the whodunnit mystery.It s superbly written, and there are plenty of red herrings and clues throughout to make you try to guess who the killer is, only for you to then completely change your mind a few pages later.There are also plenty of other side stories going on, such as unexpectedly Satanic rituals, and the personal stories of the characters And man, for a book with so many characters as there needs to be , the authors make it such an easy read to follow who s who and to have such solid, well rounded, believeable characters There are the students who are a vast array of different types, including some punkish ruffians, there s the main protagonist Crowther and her Superintendent ex husband on the outside, there are two news reporters who have bluffed their way into the school and who soon find themselves being quarantined with the rest and becoming the eyes and ears of the media, there are so many engaging characters with their own stories and they are all effortlessly portrayed well throughout.Even the opening scene in the prologue is exceptionally brilliant it feels like a classic scene from a classic film where the killer is taking care in bricklaying a wall to conceal his first victim behind it The attention the killer has to using three parts sand, one part cement and the skill of angling his trowel, with little thought towards the fact that he s just killed someone in cold blood, is the perfect introduction to a disturbed psychopathic mind Not to mention that he also then masturbates upon finishing the job.And knowing that this book is going to be made into a film, I can already see that scene being chillingly played out as clear as mud.No way will you figure out who the killer is, but you ll enjoy trying to figure it out I can guarantee it.This is such a meaty book, that I could go on for another thousand words detailing just how well it s all been put together and how well it s been written, but this review is already turning out to be a long one, so I ll leave it on this point Not only is this a great epidemic sci fi and mystery thriller, it s also a fantastic insight into the deaf community, and it s very apparent how much research has gone into this book Reading the afterword from the authors consultant makes this clear, and it s good to know that the writers have gone to lengths to show a very realistic portrayal of that community Forget the whodunnit and epidemic stories, this book works just as well at being a much needed insight for hearing people into a community we may not know much, or anything, about As their liaison Brent Macpherson says in the afterword Silent Fear is one of the few mainstream novels to address the unique challenges faced by members of the Deaf community in any great detail As a member of that community, and as someone who has been Deaf since birth, I believe this book is an important addition to the dearth of literature that exists about Deaf people and Deaf culture Highly recommended

    What a great story I didn t figure out who the killer was until the last chapter, and it still had a surprising twist I had to read the book in one sitting LOL


  5. Jon Nakapalau Jon Nakapalau says:

    This one really grabbed me It is by far one of the best thrillers I have read in quite some time The feeling of isolation is gelatinous as events unfold and questions start to follow every answer I found myself wondering what I would do if I were in a similar situation which is one of the ways I know I am getting drawn in Unlike so many formulaic attempts to scare this is a nightmare stew that will fill you full of dread


  6. Peter (Pete) Mcloughlin Peter (Pete) Mcloughlin says:

    A good murder mystery with lots of twists and turns and an introduction for many readers on issues related to people with hearing loss Definitely worth a look I don t want to get too descriptive as to give away spoilers.
