Silent Fear by Katherine Howell

Silent Fear by Katherine Howell

On a searing summer’s day paramedic Holly Garland rushes to an emergency to find a man collapsed with a bullet wound in the back of his head, CPR being performed by two bystanders, and her long-estranged brother Seth watching it all unfold.

Seth claims to be the dying man’s best friend, but Holly knows better than to believe anything he says and fears that his reappearance will reveal the bleak secrets of her past.

Detective Ella Marconi suspects Seth too, but she’s also sure the dead man’s wife is lying, and the deceased’s boss seems just too helpful. But then a shocking double homicide makes Ella realise that her investigations are both getting closer to the killer and increasing the risk of an even higher body count.

Hey! Here's my review.

Police Detective Ella Marconi is back, in the fifth book of this fast paced crime thriller series. As usual, I loved the paramedic's perspective and the familiar Australian setting. The story was full of twists and turns and secrets, and kept me guessing until the end. Katherine Howell delved into the world of illegal prostitution in Sydney, and one of the paramedics faced a serious moral dilemma. 

I listened to the audiobook edition narrated by Caroline Lee, who did a fantastic job, speaking clearly and at a good pace.
