He was an important member of a commune that had a three-year existence on a farm on the Quantock Hills in Somerset more than decade earlier.

Discover the truth in this captivating crime mystery.

My Thoughts on the Book
Silent Crimes was a well-written police procedural with a slow and steady pace. The plot had some twists and turns and cleverly structured in general. The characters, both related to police, victims and suspects, were fleshed out, which made the book more human. What made me like the book even more was that it had two LGBT+ characters in the shape of Rae, MTF trans and Lydia, lesbian.
