The Silent Speak – Val Collins

An Aoife Walsh Thriller, Book Three

Five of five stars

An investigative journalist and a Detective Inspector – what could possibly go wrong?

Aoife Walsh has been hesitant to “seal the deal” in her relationship with Conor Moloney. She has baggage from her previous abusive husband. He has a teenage son who seems to despise Aoife. Add to this tumultuous existence a demand by the sister of a man who stands accused of having killed his family in cold blood; Aoife finds herself enmeshed in the investigation. Which doesn’t make Conor happy at all.

The Silent Speak is the first time I’ve encountered Val Collins‘ work. She weaves her tale well and peppers enough nuggets of previous books in the series that though I started at number three, I felt the characters were clear and engaging. A great story and skillfully written, I happily recommend this book!
