Beschreibung von Audible

" Silent Child is a unique book, a shining light of hidden horrors and unbearable tension in a genre where it is always difficult to stand out. Emma's slow descent into hell from the moment her son disappears feels real enough to make you hold onto your loved ones that little bit tighter. Sarah A. Denzil masterfully carries the reader alongside Emma on a tortured mental journey: theories, conspiracies and increasingly justified paranoia as suspicion falls on everyone she has ever held dear. Along with Emma, you find yourself pointing the proverbial finger of accusation at a series of characters who once seemed safe. A visceral, darkly atmospheric listen that will make your heart beat, your mind race and your spine tingle." - Gabriel, Audible Editor

"A good audiobook for me is one that takes me on a ride that I never could have imagined, and Silent Child did exactly that. Sarah A. Denzil weaves a tale that starts with heartbreak, adds mystery and suspense, and ultimately becomes a thriller. The writing is superb and it created a blockbuster movie in my mind as I listened. Silent Child had me at the edge of my seat the entire time, and I even fell off a few times." - Sean, Audible Editor

"The premise is shocking and it compels you to find out where Sarah A. Denzil will take the story. But, where I think the author is truly genius is in the way she supports the central plot with some heartbreakingly real and genuinely flawed characters that were so obviously as fully developed in Denzil's mind as the thrilling hook that makes you choose the book in the first place. There's so much more to this one than first meets the eye." - Alexandra, Audible Editor

Inhaltsangabe

Winner of Audible's 2017 Narrator of the Year Award

Introducing Audible's Thriller of the Year: Silent Child by Sarah A. Denzil, performed by Joanne Froggatt.

In the summer of 2006, Emma Price watched helplessly as her six-year-old son's red coat was fished out of the River Ouse. It was the tragic story of the year - a little boy, Aiden, wandered away from school during a terrible flood, fell into the river, and drowned. His body was never recovered. Ten years later Emma has finally rediscovered the joy in life. She's married, pregnant, and in control again...until Aiden returns.

Too traumatised to speak, he raises endless questions and answers none. Where has he been? What happened to him on that rainy afternoon? And now that he's back, whom can he trust?

At Audible we love listening to crime books. But every so often one comes along that we think is truly special. An Amazon Kindle number one best-seller, Sarah A. Denzil's Silent Child is taking Audible HQ by storm. In an Audible Exclusive production, Joanne Froggatt (Mrs Bates, Downton Abbey) delivers a powerhouse performance that will keep you gripped until the very last second.

Psychothriller mit einem ungewöhnlichen Plot

Ein Kind verschwindet und taucht 10 Jahre später verstört wieder auf - wo war es, warum erzählt es nichts, wie reagiert die Umwelt? Die Mutter ist hin und her gerissen zwischen ihrer eignen Einschätzung und dem, was andere in das Verhalten ihres Sohnes hinein interpretieren.
Sehr gut gesprochen und in sich stimmige Geschichte, hat mich gefesselt!

Crazy Story

Ok i started to like thrillers like 3 months ago, and I am still not an expert in the topic, but I gotta say that they really exaggerated with this plot. So many characters, so many things going ok. I liked it and I heard it completely, but just because I was curious of what was supossed to happen in the end, although I had my suspicions.

Thriller of the year???

These very little thrilling in this story
The main character- Emma - is quite unbelievable as is the way the professionals in this story deal with the topic.
Not at all "thrilling"
The audio version is performed very well. The best part of this experience

Na ja....

Warum dieser Krimi so hoch gelobt wurde, verstehe ich nicht ganz.
Die Schwierigkeiten, die sich auftuen, wenn ein totgeglaubtes Kind nach langer Zeit wieder auftaucht, sind nachvollziehbar. Außerdem hat die Mutter ein neues Leben begonnen und ist wieder schwanger.
Die Geschichte ist zwar insgesamt logisch aufgebaut, allerdings wurden mir dann die Handlungen der Psychpaten am Ende zuviel. In meinem Kopf tauchten dann Gedanken auf wie: Warum höre ich mir diese Sachen an? Bringt man die Eltern einer Frau um, um diese besser kontrollieren zu können? Sperrt man ein Kind Jahre in einen Bunker, weil man selber keine Kinder haben kann? Unterstützt man dies, weil man als Frau eifersüchtig auf eine nette Freundin ist? Ist es so schwer als Ehefrau, diese Dinge zu durchschauen?
Und da hörte es für mich auf, logisch zu sein. Ich habe es aber bis zum Schluss gehört. Trotz allem.
