If you’ve ever found the distant toll of a bell ominously disturbing, you will find the bells in this story bone-chilling. The powerful prologue launches us into everyone’s worst nightmare, that of opening your eyes to realise you are buried alive. Jarring memories for DI Gina Harte that hold a particular horrific pathos, she is forced to recall with palpable clarity details of her abusive past and the events that finally brought it to a close. Letters sent out containing information only one person could know confirm that it has come back to haunt her. She suspects those around her – it has to be someone close, even the one person she’s come to trust. Gina is souring her relationship at a time she will need it most. A serial killer is torturing their victims in the most twisted, terrifying way possible. The team has to find them before they get too close. If the words shallow grave make your heart skip a beat, if you want an excellent crime thriller with taunting psychological twists, then Their Silent Graves is one I would highly recommend.
