One bath wall is a mural of a brilliant-yellow sunflower. The theme carries over to the shower curtains, but the yellow vinyl is spattered with red blotches. Propped against the mirror is a South Kitsap High School photo of a teenaged girl.
Detective Megan Carpenter is no stranger to horrifying crime scenes, but when she arrives at the home of a woman whose body has been brutalized, Megan is shocked to discover that she knows the victim. Monique Delmont helped Megan when she was in danger years ago. And the killer has left a disturbing calling card… two laminated photographs of a sixteen-year-old high school girl – Megan.
Someone is taunting her in the worst way possible and Megan is convinced she knows who is responsible. She just has to find him.
With the help of her new partner, Deputy Ronnie Marsh, Megan begins to unravel the clues that will lead them to the killer including links to three female murder cases from nearly twenty years ago – one of which was Monique’s daughter.
But to protect those closest to her, Megan must continue to hide the dark truth of her past, even if that means lying to her team about her connection to Monique.
When two photographs of a teenage Megan are found at her boyfriend’s place in Snow Creek, she knows the killer is circling and ready to strike again.
Can she get to him before he finds her? And will she pay the ultimate price for trying to keep her terrifying past buried?
An addictive edge-of-your-seat crime thriller from the Number One, New York Times, Wall Street Journal, USA Today and Amazon Chart bestselling author.
For Detective Megan Carpenter, the lies she has been desperate to keep hidden all these years threaten to be exposed when she becomes the focus of a killer with ties to her past…
“Can she get to him before he finds her? And will she pay the ultimate price for trying to keep her terrifying past buried?” – Blurb
Gregg Olsen pulls you in to this dark and gritty crime thriller and takes you along for the ride. As always, his writing just brings everything to life so vividly and he does a great job at holding you hostage until the final page.
Megan is such a complex and fascinating character. Normally brash and tough as nails, while we still see these things, I did enjoy seeing her drop her guard a little and showing us her vulnerable side, when it is revealed that she knows the murder victim.
As the third instalment in the series, Silent Ridge in my opinion, is the best one yet! Whilst it can be read as a standalone, I do encourage you to read this series from the beginning. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
Silent Ridge is an addictive crime thriller mystery. The plot is fresh, the characterisation is strong and the narrative is sharp. Gregg Olsen definitely knows how to weave a tale and I look forward to seeing where he takes the series next.
