The Silent Room

(2015)
(The first book in the Matthew Ryan series)
A novel by

 
 
One fugitive. A deadly plot. No rules. Thus begins an ingenious and lightning-fast thriller that reviewers agree is "not to be missed."

Detective Sergeant Matthew Ryan wants to clear the name of his former boss, who stands accused of official corruption. But before he can do so, his boss disappears. Did he escape from police custody, or was he kidnapped? Or did something even worse happen to him?

The Silent Room has everything a good thriller should have - compelling characters, a gripping plot and storyline, superb pacing, and a strong sense of place. In addition it has heart, something many thrillers sorely lack. Add some truly scary villains, vast uncertainty about whom to trust, and a loudly ticking clock, and we have ourselves a thriller that will grip readers from the first pages and never let go.

"The explosive opening of The Silent Room introduces a gripping thriller with a very human face. Nobody understands the many faces of cops better than Mari Hannah. - Val McDermid

"Very creepy. Read it on your commute, and you'll be looking over your shoulder all the way home." - Marie Claire

"I was annoyed every time I was forced to put the book down and do mundane yet necessary stuff like eat or sleep." - Yrsa Siguroardottir
