The Silence of Stone

(2016)
A novel by

 
Fierce snowstorms have battered Upper Austria, paralysing the region in the grip of an early and unforgiving winter.

Nine-year-old Traudi wakes up to find she's alone in the house. Cut off from the nearby hamlet of Hallstatt, she senses something is wrong. Then, when daylight fades and she catches sight of blood stains on the snow, she realises she may not be as alone as she had previously thought.

As Traudi prays for her family's return, the local mountain rescue team receive an emergency call. Leo Hirsch, the group's leader, is battling a loss of his own and finds the mission a welcome distraction, little knowing that this rescue will turn out to be like nothing he has encountered before.

From the critically acclaimed author of Born Under a Million Shadows and Aphrodite's War, this haunting thriller charts the frozen rivers of the mountains as they deliver up the mysteries of the past.
