Silence of the Sea

Post by draclvr » Thu Oct 13, 2016 4:18 pm

Just finished this stellar read from Icelandic author Yrsa Sigurdardottir. My daughter-in-law recommended it and I couldn't put it down. Will definitely be reading more from her.

"From the queen of Icelandic crime fiction comes a truly chilling story that will leave readers breathless right up to the memorable ending. This is possibly her best book yet. Bestselling and award-winning Icelandic crime author Yrsa Sigurdardóttir has produced here a dazzling display of brilliant crime writing that is both groundbreaking and immensely satisfying.

As The Silence of the Sea opens, a luxury yacht crashes into a Reykjavik pier. But the boat is empty; no one is on board. What has happened to the crew? And what has happened to the family who were very much present when the yacht left Lisbon?

What should Thora Gudmundsdottir, the series sleuth, make of the rumors that the vessel was cursed? She is spooked even more when she boards the yacht and thinks she sees one of the missing children. Where is Karitas, the glamorous young wife of the yacht's former owner? And whose is the body that has washed up further along the shore?

The most chilling novel yet from Yrsa Sigurdardottir, an international best-selling author at the height of her powers."

Definitely going to read this book, Drac - much of the books I read are crime thrillers.

In fact, I have just bought it as one of my "holiday" books.

It sounds like a good one, Drac. I've added it to my list.
Not only did I fall off the diet wagon, I dragged it into the woods, set it on fire, and used the insurance money to buy cupcakes.
