The 4th Goodhew Novel – The Silence
Constable and Robinson
DC Gary Goodhew searches for the link between a woman’s terminal illness, a brutal murder, and a series of suicides in Cambridge.
Illness, depression, accident, suicide.
What if they were connected?
What if it isn’t over yet?
Joey McCarthy is stabbed to death in a pub car park in a random act of violence. Shortly afterwards Charlotte Stone’s terminally ill mother dies and then, within weeks, two of her teenage friends commit suicide. With her home life disintegrating and both her father and brother racing towards self-destruction Charlotte realises that her own personal nightmare may not be over yet.
When DC Gary Goodhew finds the body of another suicide victim he is forced to recall some deeply buried memories of an earlier death; memories which lead him to Charlotte Stone and the events in her life.
From their individual points of view they both begin to wonder whether all these tragedies are somehow linked to a bigger picture. And if they are right, then who will be the next victim?
