Her Silent Cry by Lisa Regan


EXCERPT:Their argument crashed in angry waves against the door between us, slamming against the wood, pooling on the floor and slipping underneath where I could hear every word. Most of the time, I didn’t understand what they were saying or even why they were fighting. I only understood that she was about to get hurt; the silent way, or the screaming way. I was never sure which was worse.

no matter how badly he hurt her, she always found her way back to our room eventually. She’s lower herself into our creaking bed, hissing her breaths through gritted teeth, and reachfor me. I learned to be very careful when I moved under the covers. Sometimes even the slightest pressure would make her gasp with pain. As gently as I could, I would curl my back into her stomach and wait for the trembling fingers skittering over my scalp to eventually fall into a slow soothng rhythm.

I had so many questions, but I didn’t ask them. I didn’t want the man to hear me, to remember I was there too. When the ragged edges of her breath smoothed out, she’d let out a soft sigh that meant she had reached a point where her pain was bearable.

‘It’s okay,’ she’d say. ‘It will be okay.’

She was always a bad liar.

ABOUT THIS BOOK: Round and round she goes, blonde pigtails flying, her high-pitched giggle catching on the wind. But as the ride slows to a stop, her seat is suddenly empty. Little Lucy is gone…

When seven-year-old Lucy Ross is snatched from the carousel in Denton city park, Detective Josie Quinn joins the frantic search. She’s the one who finds Lucy’s sparkly butterfly backpack abandoned by the ticket booth, a note with a devastating message stuffed inside: answer your phone, or your sweet little darling will die…

The next day, Lucy’s parents are filled with hope when they pick up a call which they think is from their babysitter – but instead it’s a chilling male voice on the line. Josie races to the babysitter’s small apartment only to find her lifeless body in a tangle of sheets on her bed.

Josie is faced with the most high-stakes case of her career as each new phone call from someone connected to the family ends with the shocking discovery of another body. This twisted killer wants revenge, and he won’t stop until the Ross family are in pieces…

Something is telling Josie that Lucy’s parents aren’t giving her the whole truth, but digging deeper into their lives will force her to confront a life-changing secret of her own. Does Josie have what it takes to crack this case? She has no choice if she’s going to bring Lucy home alive…

MY THOUGHTS: 5 super-novas!!!!!

If you are planning on starting this book, don’t plan on doing anything else….it is one of those ‘just one more chapter’ books. The sort where ten chapters later you are still telling yourself that you will read just one more chapter before you go cook dinner….and end up ordering in. I read this in one sitting, couldn’t put it down.

I didn’t even stop reading long enough to highlight anything, or select possible passages for my excerpt…that has never happened before!

Breathtaking, heartpounding tension, this has to be the best book in the series yet, and the earlier books have been excellent.

Don’t waste time reading my review…just read this book!

  1. Wow, wow, wow. This sounds amazing. I have the first five books, but have not read them yet. I have to stop with the blog tours and just take time to read the wonderful books I have been buying and adding to my TBR. Wonderful post Sandy.
