Product Description

Book Description

The team track an alien killer targeting young singers in this exciting page-turner from the bestselling Torchwood range

Product Description

The body in the church hall is very definitely dead. It has been sliced open with surgical precision, its organs exposed, and its vocal cords are gone. It is as if they were never there or they've been dissolved...



With the Welsh Amateur Operatic Contest getting under way, music is filling the churches and concert halls of Cardiff. The competition has attracted the finest Welsh talent to the city, but it has also drawn something else - there are stories of a metallic creature hiding in the shadows. Torchwood are on its tail, but it's moving too fast for them to track it down.



This new threat requires a new tactic - so Ianto Jones is joining a male voice choir...



Featuring Captain Jack Harkness as played by John Barrowman, with Gwen Cooper and Ianto Jones as played by Eve Myles and Gareth David-Lloyd, in the hit sci-fi series created by Russell T Davies for BBC Television.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cardiff's alive... with the sound of Torchwood. 28 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Torchwood is a funny old thing on telly - the gritty adult science-fiction series fronted by TV's Mr Light Entertainment, John Barrowman. Its grimmest episodes are rendered infinitely more entertaining if you mentally play the famous Benny Hill theme over the top. The most recent series was supposed to be an unfolding story told over ten hours, until they got bored in week 3 and turned it into a parade of [human] monsters of the week. They're a team of elite professionals who leave their keys in the ignition when they're in the field, and one episode featured the unforgettable moment where a lead character blundered round a forest screaming "TOSH!" at the top of his voice.

So the Torchwood novels have a hard time pinning down a series that doesn't really know what it wants to be. Sarah Pinborough works with the twin strands of horror and camp - introducing a horrific and unstoppable killer alien... who stalks the contestants of an amateur operatic contest.

Into the Silence is a good read - lightly written, but still gripping throughout. In addition to a consistent and familiar depiction of the Torchwood regulars, Pinborough introduces the reader to the private thoughts of a parade of engaging and real characters. Most of whom are then dispatched in short order.

So if new character DI Cutler occasionally veers into world-weary cop cliche territory, you can forgive this oversight (particularly as I got the sense he was included to bolster the Torchwood team which at this point in the TV series had been depleted following the exit of Tosh and Owen at the end of the second season).

Pinborough has grasped a few truths about Torchwood that have been lost on the TV writing team, the main one being that a hero who can't die is in no way dramatic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Silent Running (on dangerous ground) 5 Jan 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Sarah Pinborough's debut as a Torchwood novelist is pretty inauspicious. The story is very generic - and this is no bad thing in itself, however it lacks a spark, and the liberal references to the deceased team members Tosh and Owen only serve to remind us what the series itself is missing. There are some pretty gruesome depictions in the book, and it is very much aimed at older teenagers or younger adults, it would be okay if the story was stronger but as it is this is really just a series of brutal slayings interspersed with reminders of the Torchwood team's raging libidos. Overall a formulaic novel that is readable but pretty forgettable too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Torchwood..Into The Silence 26 Sep 2014
By justin
Format:Kindle Edition
Captain Jack Harkness..Gwen Cooper and Ianto Jones were totaly brilliant in this story.Horrible killings and mystery spans this amazing novel..The creature..so lonley from the silent planet..needs sounds..and is frightened..Also Cutler who helps Jack and the team..I really liked..You understood why he was messed up with a pervious encounter with another team of Torchwood..The Autistic boy Ryan was a key player in this story also..adding to a very cleaver and touching ending involving the creature..You also got the lonliness that Jack Harkness feels within himself..All the charactar's were very well defined..and the action at a fast pace..ANY Torchwood fan will love this novel just as I did...10/10

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Read 26 Aug 2011
Format:Hardcover
I would recommend this for any Torchwood fan who loved the first 3 series I really liked this story and the ending was very satisfying. Gwen, Ianto and Jack investigate several deaths of participants for a singing contest the team are up against it trying to solve the mystery and save lives.

Good page turner and the the writer really seems to get Jack, Gwen and Ianto I have to admit I much prefer Gwen in the books than on the actual show. Good effort
