Who would kill an eighteen-month-old girl in a houseful of deaf people? While the police try and solve the crime, British Sign Language Interpreter, Paige Northwood, is listening to all the interviews. As a family friend, she feels obligated to solve the crime herself—with chilling consequences. Silent House is a humdinger of a debut thriller from Nell Pattison.
What could be scarier than having your child killed while staying with your ex-husband over the weekend? How about that a stranger snuck into the house without you hearing a thing because you are profoundly deaf? Silent House brings up some good points about deafness. However, it is also a twisty thriller, where the suspect is small. Despite that, I never even suspected the murderer until the stunning reveal at the end. Overall, Silent House is a compelling and intriguing thriller set in the soundless word of the deaf. 4 stars!
