Good Moring book lovers, its been a month since my last post. I had a lot of things going on in the month of July. But here I am again, I do have some new ideas that I want to write or blog about. Have a great week everyone.
Welcome toFirst Chapter/Intros, now hosted by Yvonne @ Socrates Book Reviews. Each week readers post the first paragraph (or 2) of a book they are reading or that they plan to read soon. This week’s pick is by an author I always look forward to reading its by Sally Rigby.
Catherine Cooper walked into the social services meeting room for a conference regarding Lacey, the child sthe’d been fostering over the last few weeks. It was the strangest case she’d ever come across and the police were no closer to solving it.
Government agencies had been working hard to find the parents but, so far, with no success.
What happens when someone’s too scared to speak?
Ex-police officer Sebastian Clifford had decided to limit his work as a private investigator, until Detective Constable Bird, aka Birdie, asks for his help.
Twelve months ago a young girl was abandoned on the streets of Market Harborough in shocking circumstances. Since then the child has barely spoken and with the police unable to trace her identity, they’ve given up.
The social services team in charge of the case worry that the child has an intellectual disability but Birdie and her aunt, who’s fostering the little girl, disagree and believe she’s gifted and intelligent, but something bad happened and she’s living in constant fear.
Clifford trusts Birdie’s instinct and together they work to find out who the girl is, so she can be freed from the past. But as secrets are uncovered, the pair realise it’s not just the child who’s in danger.
Speak No Evil is the second in the Detective Sebastian Clifford series. Perfect for readers of Faith Martin, Matt Brolly and Joy Ellis.
What do you think read more or pass?
