About this audiobook


‘Robert Bryndza does not disappoint with this stand-alone thriller! Every page had me breathless with anticipation of what was to come. Bryndza is without doubt one of the modern masters of this genre.’ Louise, Netgalley reviewer ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐


‘Do you believe Will took his own life?’

The question echoed off the white tiles in the hospital’s cold, cavernous morgue, and I studied my husband in peaceful repose. I leaned down and put my forehead against his. Silent tears ran down my cheeks. They felt hot, and he felt so cold. It was five days since his death, and my grief felt heavy, like a vast, dark mass pushing down on me.

When Maggie’s husband, Will, is shot dead in their London home, she thinks he is the victim of a burglary until the police tell her the shocking news that Will was the one who pulled the trigger.

Maggie is consumed with grief and questions. Will wasn’t suicidal. He had so much to live for.

After the funeral, Maggie travels to their holiday home on a small Croatian island to escape London. She finds a disturbing letter written by Will, containing clues to a dark secret.

As Maggie puts the pieces together, she discovers Will’s death is connected to someone from his past... Someone who will go to extreme lengths to keep Maggie silent.

Three can keep a secret... If two of them are dead.

I loved the initial feel of this story and was on the edge of my seat anxious to know where it was going. However, once it moved full steam ahead into the mystery with a bit of evidence here and there, it soon lost its dark, intriguing quality. While it settled into a nice enough mystery, I found it to be somewhat ordinary. There was a small twist but nothing that shook me. Overall, this was an enjoyable enough read and would have been even more so had I not had different expectations of it.

This tightly-plotted story contains a well-balanced combination of suspense, shocking twists and political intrigue, which kept me on the edge of my seat until the end. I'd highly recommend Fear the Silence to existing fans of Robert Bryndza's crime fiction, but also as a perfect starting point for those who are yet to delve into his work, given that it's a standalone. My thanks to the author, Robert Bryndza, publisher Raven Street Publishing, and NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review

Fear the Silence is one of my top reads of June 2023. This book is brilliantly written (umm...hello, it's Robert Bryndza) with sharp twists and turns that had me on the edge of my seat. he layers of dread and the growing paranoia are written so well, and the comparison to the brewing storm made this read thoroughly engaging. Maggie is a survivor, grounded by principle and an oath to do right by people. Thank you, NetGalley & Raven Street Publishing, for this e-ARC.
