Into Jenny’s life Jo learns that Dielman keeps a stranglehold on the family finances down to the last nickel and that Jenny’s first marriage dissolved following the death of her young son By all accounts including her doctor’s she never recovered from the loss Betwee. Walk into Silence is a tense and absorbing psychological thriller and Susan McBride writes with a sharp edge and a clever eye towards characterisation that just draws you inI liked how there was hidden common ground between the woman who has disappeared and the woman who is trying to find her the plot is solid and addictive and the uestion of whether Jenny has gone by choice or by force is one that keeps you reading The lines are blurred there are some dark themes and current issues underneath the outer narrative and the whole story was rivetingIt is at times thrilling then melancholy the storytelling is solidly compelling and its one of those books where you just want everything to be ok but realise that it probably won t be As a reader I became emotionally invested in the characters uite early on always something that needs to happen for me to enjoy a novelOverall I thought it was very good indeed And I m happy that it seems this will become a series I would love to read

Walk Into Silence Detective Jo Larsen #1

A woman vanishes from a Texas town Did she simply run off or is something darker at playWhen Patrick Dielman shows up at Detective Jo Larsen’s desk insisting that his wife Jenny is missing Jo wonders if it’s a case of a bored housewife running awayBut as she digs deeper. Here I am again in this uncomfortable position of not liking a book many people have loved The feeling is a bit like walking into a formal event wearing a bikini and I don t even wear a bikini on the beach any much less to a formal party So I ll apologize for my inappropriate attire but I can t apologize for my opinionThis book is not horrible not at all The author clearly knows how to write The plot is intriguing ButThe characters have no flare nothing uniue or surprising They feel flat and one dimensional We get to know Jo the lead character gradually as the story unfolds She has some secrets and a darkness to her that should have captured my interest but she never truly comes alive The bad guysgirls are clearly unlikable from the start They have no redeeming factors nothing that makes you want to like them even a little bit This is all too black and white good and bad without any of the tension that accompanies complex characters The book is written mostly from Jo s perspective but we get to know Jenny the murder victim through snippets of her journal along the way Oddly this dead character is the only one that really comes alive on the pages The journal entries are exceptionally well written Pacing is uite slow We spend a lot of time in Jo s head which should have helped us get to know her but most of this introspection is spent rehashing the exact same thought process and case details The repetition slows everything down without adding depth The book is uite long but through much of it there isn t a lot happeningThen we get to the whodunit at the end I figured out who did it early on so that wasn t a surprise Even the why is pretty obvious before the midway point There is a bit of a twist but it doesn t make much sense The ending seems tossed together with no plausible explanation allowing me to make the leap and believe the twist In the end I m left with a story that should have been compelling but instead is largely forgettable Of course this is only my opinion Lots of early reviewers have loved this story so if the plot appeals to you go ahead and give it a try

N a controlling husband a tragic past and a callous ex husband Jo can’t be sure if she should suspect foul play or accept that the woman may have wanted to disappearFor Jo whose own demons are shadowing her every step finding Jenny becomes than the typical protect and ser. A good police proceduralThis was one of the Kindle First titles offered for November and I ll admit that I had my reservations after seeing previous reviews I was pleasantly surprisedas the main characters were complex and well fleshed out I was impressed because even the heroes had flaws instead of being typical cookie cutter good guys with perfect hair and stellar backgroundsWalk Into Silence has a pervasive sadness that some might find difficult to deal with but to me it gave the story an authenticity that would have been lost had there been the levity that others might have attempted The victims and their families were treated with respect and kindness and the officers coroners office and crime technicians were professional and dedicated Some reviewers mentioned that they had figured out who done it before the police but we readers had information that the police weren t privy to namely the victim s journalWalk Into Silence was excellently written thought provoking and flowed well Highly recommended

    There seems to be a trend that is growing by leaps and bounds with novels featuring deeply flawed damaged female detectives It would be a treat to come across an interesting lady cop character who is not dealing with some deep seated emotional scarring barely hanging onto her sanity by working cases which are invariably similar to her own background trauma That is not going to happen here Agreed the setup is a good one b

    I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for my honest review This was a really good book from beginning to end The story is told through the Detective Jo and through journal entries by Jenny who has disappeared either because she has run off or because she has been the victim of foul play The characters were very well developed and the story itself was very suspenseful and at times uite intense I like
