Publisher's Summary

In the crisp, early morning hours, the police are called to a suspected murder at a farm outside a small English village. A beautiful young woman has been found dead, blood all over the cottage she lives in. At the same time, police respond to a reported female suicide, where a car has fallen into a local quarry.
As DCI Louisa Smith and her team gather the evidence, they discover a link between these two women, a link which has sealed their dreadful fate one cold night, under a silent moon.
Told in a unique way, using source documents that allow readers to interpret the evidence alongside DCI Louisa Smith and her team, Under a Silent Moon is an unsettling and compulsively readable novel that will keep you gripped until the very last page.

Enjoyable and gripping!

If you could sum up Under a Silent Moon in three words, what would they be?

Beautifully written and pacey.

What about Lucy Price-Lewis’s performance did you like?

Consistently good performance which allowed the listener to concentrate on the novel without being distracted by any aspect of the narration.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

I have now listened to all of Elizabeth Hayes' books. There are two things they each have in common. Firstly, they are elegantly and concisely written, allowing the stories to pop along at a good pace. Secondly, no two so far are alike and they each have unexpected aspects littered through them. This is probably not her best, but is still a five star read/listen in the genre.

Too fast narrated

I almost had to start the audiobook again after the first hours listening, because the narrator read it so fast it was hard to follow. And like many other narators she never paused between scenery. One moment I was listening to the police talking over the case, next moment we were off to other caracters talking together.
This book can not be recommended for driving and listening.
Otherwise the story is good, well written.
