By Sophia Whitfield

Let the Dead Speak is a gripping crime novel from award-winning author Jane Casey.

Eighteen-year-old Chloe Emery returns home one day early from a few days away at her dad’s place. When she opens her front door a horrific scene greets her. There is blood on the walls and the floor and her mother is nowhere to be seen. Chloe’s mother Kate has disappeared from the house and is feared dead.

Detective sergeant Maeve Kerrigan is given the task of investigating the crime. With no body found, Kerrigan has her work cut out for her. The residents of Valerian Road all seem to have indiscretions they are hiding. Behind each door lurks a dark secret. Maeve needs one of them to talk but each one is close lipped.

Chloe and her best friend Bethany are equally hiding something from Maeve. Bethany, the younger of the two is protective of her friend, shielding her from the intrusive investigation into her mother’s death.

A chilling thriller that will keep you reading on until the final page. Buy the book here in Australia and here in the UK.
