Publisher's Summary

The Silent Quarry is the first audiobook in a series of murder mysteries featuring the perceptive but reclusive and love-shy detective DI Winter Meadows.

One morning, Gwen Thomas takes a short walk with her Siberian husky in the outskirts of the Welsh town she calls home. She is drawn to a desolate area where, some 20 years ago as a teenager, she was brutally attacked and her friend killed. Disorientated by a sudden rush of memories, she has a fall. Later, recovering in hospital, she begins to recollect the events that led up to her friend’s death. 

DI Winter Meadows is encouraged to reopen what has for some time been a cold case. If Gwen can remember who attacked her, it could lead to a prosecution. But not everyone wants Gwen to recover her memory. Having got over her fall, she now faces a greater danger - from whoever else knows what actually happened.

Good mystery set in Wales with an interesting plot

I enjoyed listening to the Audible edition of The Silent Quarry and plan on reading the rest of the DI Winter Meadows books if audio versions aren't available. The story moves along and Rees-Price does a fine job of character development. While I knew post-traumatic amnesia was central to the story, I have mixed feelings about its use in the book but it is a compelling story so it was not much of a distraction. I had read A Knot of Sparrow first (4th in the series and recommended), soo I was pleased to see DI Meadow's backstory laid out well in The Silent Quarry.

I recommend this book to anyone who likes mysteries and police procedurals. It is emotional rather than dry. Additionally, I recommend it to people who have an interest in Northern Wales and contemporary Welsh writers.
