Publisher's Summary

This morning, I was packing up lunches, ironing, putting on the laundry I should have done last night. Now my precious daughter is accused of murder.   

When 10-year-old cousins Maddy and Brianna are arrested for a terrible crime, Maddy’s mother, Juliet, cannot believe it. 

How could her bright, joyful daughter be capable of such a thing?   

As the small village community recoils in horror, the pressure of the tragedy blows Juliet and her sister’s lives apart. And things get even worse when their daughters retreat into a self-imposed silence. Can anyone reach Maddy and discover the truth before her fate is sealed?  

Juliet is crushed. Nothing will ever be the same for her darling girl. But she knows that to find out what really happened that day, she and her sister must unlock the secrets of their own terrible past, a past they swore never to speak about again.

The most unputdownable psychological thriller you’ll listen to this year from the best-selling author K. L. Slater. If you love The Wife Between Us or Gone Girl, you’ll be totally hooked on The Silent Ones.

Heart rending story,

I have, just moments ago finished listening to this book. I am sitting here in tears… I now intend to go to each and everyone of this authors books. I am in awe of the story lines and the characters, so realistic. Narration performance was perfect.

I heartily recommend this book to everyone…
