New Police Procedural: “Under A Silent Moon”

Some have characterized Elizabeth Haynes as the most exciting thing to happen in crime fiction in a long time…they might not be exaggerating: Under a Silent Moon, her new book is an evidence!

A Brief Summary:

In the crisp, early hours of an autumn morning, the police are called to investigate two deaths. The first is a suspected murder at a farm on the outskirts of a small village. A beautiful young woman has been found dead, her cottage drenched with blood. The second is a reported suicide at a nearby quarry. A car with a woman’s body inside was found at the bottom of the pit.

As DI Louisa Smith and her team gather evidence, they discover a shocking link between the two cases and the two deaths—a bond that sealed their terrible fates one cold night, under a silent moon.

Our Take:

We liked the character development in this book: The characters are all interesting; especially DCI Smith which strikes us as an engaging person with some back-story.

She has a strained relationship with DI Andy Hamilton, there’s a story there; and her relationship with her analyst all make for a compelling read. Overall an engaging start for a brand new series!

Our Rating: 3.9
