Don’t miss the USA Today bestseller

If someone was in your house, you’d know … Wouldn’t you?

But the Hunter family are deaf, and don’t hear a thing when a shocking crime takes place in the middle of the night. Instead, they wake up to their worst nightmare: the murder of their daughter.

The police call Paige Northwood to the scene to interpret for the witnesses. They’re in shock, but Paige senses the Hunters are hiding something.

One by one, people from Paige’s community start to fall under suspicion. But who would kill a little girl?

Was it an intruder?

Or was the murderer closer to home?

This mystery will keep you up all night – perfect for fans of The Silent Patient and Cara Hunter. Don’t miss Silent Night, the second book in the series.

The silent house

Each time I began to write a review, I mess up and can’t finish it but this time it will be short and sweet. I loved the way the author spoke and the book was amazing I recommend this book and will continue with the series Grandma Fox
