‘A Deathly Silence’ by Jane Isaac

Published by Legend Press,
15 October 2019.
ISBN: 978-178955071-9 (PB)

On her first day back at work after injury leave, DCI Helen Lavery is called to a deserted factory where the mutilated body of a young female police officer has been found.

Sinead is married to a policeman and has two children. Although, liked and trusted by her colleagues as Helen investigates Sinead’s brutal murder, she finds that Sinead actually shares very little of herself with anyone.  

With the nature of her job the field for suspects is wide.  Could it be a random attack? Could it be linked to any cases on which she has worked? Could it be a personal vendetta?

A second death in close proximity to Sinead’s poses a number of questions and is thought to be suicide.   But is it?

The story is told by multiple we points of view although mainly by Helen Lavery, and through her we get to know members of her team in particular Pemberton and Dark.  Also, Superintendent Jenkins who is currently acting out of character.

This is a first-class police procedural. The writing is crisp, and the story moves along a cracking pace.
