Under a Silent Moon by Elizabeth Haynes
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A well-written and well-plotted police procedural tale which is also about relationships, professional, personal, sexual or criminal. It highlights the emotions such relationships engender and how they can cloud our judgement. The investigation takes place over six days and rather than chapters it is divided into date/time lines and interspersed with witness statements, police phone logs and reports, together with flow-charts at the back of the book that allow the reader to follow the progression of the investigation and gives insight into how a case is built … fascinating. The expert knowledge comes from the author’s seven year stint with the Kent police working as an intelligence analyst.

If you like Elizabeth Haynes you might also like to read books by Kerry Wilkinson, Nuala Casey and Jenny Blackhurst.

Synopsis

Under a Silent Moon by Elizabeth Haynes

In the crisp, early morning hours, the police are called to a suspected murder at a farm outside a small English village. A beautiful young woman has been found dead, blood all over the cottage she lives in. At the same time, police respond to a reported female suicide, where a car has fallen into a local quarry. As DCI Louisa Smith and her team gather the evidence, they discover a link between these two women, a link which has sealed their dreadful fate one cold night, under a silent moon.

Reviews

'Intense, gripping ... utterly unputdownable S. J. Watson Haynes does a great job in ratcheting up the suspense ... and there are many lip-biting moments' Daily Mail

'Check the locks on your doors and windows and surrender to this obsessive thriller' Karin Slaughter

'As Haynes herself is a police intelligence analyst she is well placed to add authenticity to her skills of storytelling. Unputdownable' Red Magazine

'A chilling, page-turning read' Rosamund Lupton
