Publisher's Summary

"You don't deserve a sister...."

Lizzy Beresford is at home alone when she finds a chilling letter in her kitchen. Someone has been into her home - someone who wishes Lizzy harm. 

In her little country cottage, with her doting boyfriend, not far from the close-knit village, Lizzy can’t imagine who might want to hurt her. But when the threatening letters keep coming, she starts to suspect everyone around her. 

Desperate, Lizzy reaches out to her sister, Emma. They haven’t spoken in years, not since the argument that tore them apart. 

But what Emma says shocks her to the core: 

"I’ve been receiving letters too...."

From the best-selling author of The Secret Mother and The Child Next Door, this absolutely enthralling psychological thriller will keep you guessing with every heart-stopping twist. If you loved Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train, and The Sister, this book is for you.

Critic Reviews

"Wow and wow again...a nail biting, fast-paced roller coaster ride that is packed full of so many twists and turns...jaw dropping...it's worth far more than five stars." (Nicki’s Life of Crime, 5 stars)

Had no idea at all!

I really love this author. Every book of hers has been awesome. This one really threw me. No idea until the last chapter what was going on. Looking for an exciting thriller, then look no further. Definitely a great story that is worth the money or credit. Loved it!! 😀😀😀

Decent, but not life-changing

The Silent Sister is a good story to read after you've finished a really intense book. It passes the time - is enjoyable - but you won't really remember the details in a month or so. The narrator is very good, and there are enough twists to keep it interesting.

Just Okay

Kind of slow. Ending kind of predictable. It did just enough to keep me until the end... but barely.

Another hit!

Another great story by Shalini Boland and narration by Katie Villa.

This is my third Boland novel and not my last.

Suspense is alive and well in this story. It proves yet again that you can't always trust the ones you do.

Gripping

This is a a great story. Kept me interested all the way through. Just when you think you know “who done it” there’s another twist to throw you off again. The narrator was fantastic. Looking forward to hearing her again. It’s a must read/hear.

A Must Read

I have read everyone of Shalini Boland books - everyone to me are fantastic reading, what makes them more exciting and on the edge of my seat each time is the the Narrated Voice of Katie Villa, what a marvellous reader. I cannot wait until Shalini’s next book comes out. April I believe cannot wait. Please keep writing your books Shalini. Thankyou

Not for me.

In my opinion the story line was not credible, and so repetitive, it became quite boring. The characters seemed under developed, superficial along with the story line. The positives, it's 'easy listening' and the narrator did an amazing job!
