Remain Silent

(2020)
(The third book in the DS Manon Bradshaw series)
A novel by

 
 
An immigrant’s mysterious death sets off a chilling hunt for the truth in this gripping crime novel from the author of Missing, Presumed, featuring a “delightful protagonist who deserves a place alongside other beloved literary detectives” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review).

Newly married and navigating life with a preschooler as well as her adopted adolescent son, Manon Bradshaw is happy to be working part-time in the cold cases department of the Cambridgeshire police force, a job that allows her to potter in, coffee in hand, and log on for a spot of Internet shopping—precisely what she had in mind when she thought of work-life balance. But beneath the surface Manon is struggling with the day-to-day realities of what she’d assumed would be domestic bliss: fights about whose turn it is to clean the kitchen, the bewildering fatigue of having a young child while in her forties, and the fact that she is going to couples counseling alone because her husband feels it would just be her complaining.

But when Manon is on a walk with her four-year-old son in a peaceful suburban neighborhood and discovers the body of a Lithuanian immigrant hanging from a tree with a mysterious note attached, she knows her life is about to change. Suddenly, she is back on the job full-force, trying to solve the suicide—or is it a murder—in what may be the most dangerous and demanding case of her life.

Praise for this book

"Completely gripping, this book is a joy." - Jane Casey

"There's no-one to touch Susie Steiner for managing to combine a hugely gripping murder plot with utterly identifiable domestic life. I adore Manon Bradshaw – detective, wit, slob and mother – and Remain Silent is as twisty, as riveting and as well written as her previous two appearances." - Lissa Evans

"A brilliantly gripping tale." - Lucy Foley

"No one writes crime fiction like Susie Steiner." - Erin Kelly

"Manon Bradshaw is SUCH a great creation. [Remain Silent] is so spot-on about love, relationships, middle-age, being a woman. The plot … broke my heart. So MOVING." - Marian Keyes

"I can't imagine reading a better crime novel this year." - Renée Knight

"Susie Steiner’s novels are addictive, intelligent, funny and humane. I’m pathetically desperate for more." - Charlotte Mendelson

"Susie Steiner is a genius. Simultaneously heart-breaking and hilarious, profound and page-turning, this book contains multitudes." - Lucie Whitehouse
