5.0 out of 5 stars Good, gripping story 3 Feb 2000
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The story drew you in immediately, and left a chill down your spine whilst trying to work out who the main villain was. I made several false accusations of the murderer in my mind. It is well written, very enjoyable and no-put-downable(!) if you enjoy a good murder/mystery.

5.0 out of 5 stars Night and Silence 10 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A well written compelling page turner. Through out there is a feeling of unease and menace something bad is happening but when and what. Some good unexpected twists in a story which kept me reading until I finished it in one sitting!

4.0 out of 5 stars Gripping thriller 15 Sep 2000
Format:Paperback
I was recommended this book by a friend, and I wasn't disappointed. Extremely well written, it grabs your attention and is gripping right up until the final page. Not really a detective novel, but a crime thriller more in the vein of Barbara Vine. Can't wait to read more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Different from Templeton 13 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you are familiar with Templeton's other works set in remote SW Scotland, then this story set in the remote Welsh Marches would suggest something similar. But this novel is so much different from the Inspector Fleming series in that it is far less police oriented and far more concentrated on the characters involved. Of course the police aspect is there, but far more important to the book as a whole is the development of the main characters... so much so that they almost come to life. Altogether a very satisfying read. Don't worry if you are new to this author, you don't need to have read any of her previous worksto enjoy this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars exciting and realistic 2 Feb 2014
By janbay
Format:Kindle Edition
I thought this was a really good read- well written, excellent plot. And the situation is interesting, the main characters are outsiders in a small,unfriendly village. The way in which they are made to feel alien and excluded, and all their attempts at friendliness beaten back- that was very well portrayed, without being overdone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great tense psychological crime drama. 10 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A very well written crime thriller, with a twisting clever storyline which keeps the reader guessing. The use of language is very rich and evocative, and the lengthy climax builds and builds to a crescendo of finger-tightening tension. The social satire of the back-biting, gossiping, cold-shouldering, and narrow mindedness of a small town is also very well executed.
There are two reasons I am only giving it 4 stars - one is the large number of characters who are introduced in quick succession at the start of the book without too much explanation of how they all fit in, making for a bit of a confusing beginning to the novel; the other reason, I am afraid to say, is the poor editing, which is quite disappointing to see in the work of an author this good - I found at least 2 dozen mistakes, one of which is in the first paragraph. Don't let this put you off though - a thoroughly riveting read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kept me guessing 20 Jun 2014
By M B
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is certainly quite a different plot to the usual crime books. Basically you can guess that the one talking is responsible for the deaths, but then who is the one talking?. Certainly not the one I thought it was, and I think most people would be the same! I had blamed several people before the end and was totally wrong. I felt the author drew the characters well. Will certainly be looking for other books by this author.
