Quieter Than Killing – Sarah Hilary (DI Marnie Rome Book 4) – Genre – Police / Crime
Blurb: Sometimes staying silent is the only way to survive
‘You only ever ask that. Why did I do it? You never ask what they did.’
The winter cold is biting, and a series of assaults is pulling DI Marnie Rome and DS Noah Jake out into the frosty, mean streets of London far more than they’d like. The attacks seem random, but when Marnie’s family home is ransacked, there are signs that the burglary can have only been committed by a child – and someone who knows all about her. It will take a prison visit to her foster brother, Stephen, to help Marnie see the connections – and to force both her and Noah to face the truth about the creeping, chilling reaches of a troubled upbringing. For how can a damaged child really leave their past behind them?
My Review: This is the fourth book in Sarah Hilary’s dark series featuring Marnie Rome and her team. This book sees Marnie and Noah dealing with a spate of violent attacks which appear to be carried out by a vigilante. Once again this book delves deeply into Marnie’s past and has her facing some of her darker demons head on. A truly gripping page turner and I can’t wait for book 5.
