The Silence: A Novel
The Silence will keep you wondering what happened thirty years ago in 1967 when Louisa Green decided to leave her husband Joe and take their young daughter Isla with her back to England. It is now 1997, and the police have opened up a case of a missing person named Mandy who was a neighbor to the Greens thirty years ago. What entails is a story of heartbreak and deceit in which all of the characters are involved. Joe Green is being looked at as a possible murder suspect, but his daughter Isla is set on defending him and does some research of her own.
