You can’t choose your family. Or can you?
Meet the Bensons. They’re an ordinary couple. They wash their car, mow their lawn and pass the time of day with their neighbours. And they have a beautiful little girl called Daisy.
There’s just one problem.
SHE’S NOT THEIRS.
D. S. Nathan Cody is about to face his darkest and most terrifying case yet . . .
If ever there was a book that would make you stop and question why an author isn’t yet a household name, Don’t Make a Sound is the one for David Jackson.
Don’t let the subject matter put you off. This is well-written and skilfully handled, but don’t think that you’re in for an easy ride. Jackson keeps the reader on the edge of their seat, showing us the peril Daisy is facing on a daily basis, and also putting Nathan Cody in a situation that is perhaps the worse position a man with his past can find himself in.
I was less than half-way through the book when I tweeted this:
That was what I was thinking by Chapter 15, and the book just got better and better. And just when I thought it was all over, the twist came, kicking my feet out from under me and stomping me where it hurts. Boy, I didn’t see that coming! Fantastic. And just a little bit disturbing, making you question everything you thought.
The future of crime fiction is bright, with David Jackson shining very brightly indeed!
