The Silent Ones

Someone knows where the missing girls go...
Darren Evans was only eleven when his beloved sister Carly and four other teenage girls disappeared, sparking a huge police investigation. Eventually, a woman confessed to their murder. But although she admitted her guilt, Olivia Duvall refused to say what had happened to those five missing girls. Or where their bodies might lie. Ten years later, Darren's family are still no closer to the truth. Desperate to alleviate his parents' heartbreak, Darren gets a job as a cleaner in the psychiatric hospital where Olivia was committed, hoping he can make her tell him his sister's fate once and for all.

Reviews of The Silent Ones

Eerie, smart and brutal - this is a real chiller.


Fresh and fiendish, with characters so compelling you won't be able to put the book down. Highly recommended.

Louise Voss

Knight has created a terrific villain in female serial killer Olivia Duvall. Fiendishly clever.

The Daily Mail

The new Silence of the Lambs, complete with female serial killer and a cracking twist. Sensational.
