My Perfect Silence

(2006)
A novel by

 
 
'I was four when I killed my baby brother'. Rose is 29 years old and has been haunted by the death of her baby brother for a quarter of a century. Her father grieved for the baby and for her, but her mother shuddered even at the sound of her name. Rose took a vow of silence and nothing has broken through. The only constant in her life has been her older brother Max. He looked after her then and looks after her now. But, his life is turning upside down, despite his fame and success, as his fiancee is murdered and the inevitable figure of blame points again to Rose. Evans' skill at drawing the reader into the lives of Rose and Max is enhanced by the silent world in which Rose chooses to live. Without question, Evans is a writer of great skill and power and "My Perfect Silence" is set to break her out to a wider audience.

    

Praise for this book

"Uneasily funny, sad and terrifying. I read the book very quickly, hardly daring to put it down." - Lesley Glaister

"Remarkable... Tension holds the reader in page-turning compulsion and never flags until the last word has been read." - Ruth Rendell
