Description

One fugitive. A deadly plot. No rules. Thus begins an ingenious and lightning-fast thriller that reviewers agree is "not to be missed."

Detective Sergeant Matthew Ryan wants to clear the name of his former boss, who stands accused of official corruption. But before he can do so, his boss disappears. Did he escape from police custody, or was he kidnapped? Or did something even worse happen to him?

The Silent Room has everything a good thriller should have--compelling characters, a gripping plot and storyline, superb pacing, and a strong sense of place. In addition it has heart, something many thrillers sorely lack. Add some truly scary villains, vast uncertainty about whom to trust, and a loudly ticking clock, and we have ourselves a thriller that will grip readers from the first pages and never let go.

"The explosive opening of The Silent Room introduces a gripping thriller with a very human face. Nobody understands the many faces of cops better than Mari Hannah."--Val McDermid "Very creepy. Read it on your commute, and you'll be looking over your shoulder all the way home." -- Marie Claire "I was annoyed every time I was forced to put the book down and do mundane yet necessary stuff like eat or sleep." --Yrsa Sigurðardóttir

display_description"Detective Sergeant Matthew Ryan wants to clear the name of his former boss, who stands accused of official corruption. But before he can do so, his boss disappears. Did he escape from police custody, or was he kidnapped? Or did something even worse happen to him? Suspended from duty on suspicion of aiding and abetting the audacious escape of his former boss, Ryan is locked out of the manhunt. Desperate to preserve his career and prove his innocence, he backs off. But when the official investigation falls apart, under surveillance and with his life in danger, Ryan goes dark, enlisting other fascinating but decidedly unofficial cohorts in his quest to discover the truth. Mari Hannah's The Silent Room has it all--truly memorable characters, a breakneck pace, and a gripping plot. In addition, it has heart. Add some truly scary villains and a loudly ticking clock, and it's clear that Hannah has penned an ingenious and lightning-fast thriller that will grip readers from the first pages and never let go."--Dust jacket.
