Her Silent Bones by Pamela Fagan Hutchins is one of those police procedurals that will keep you reading into the wee hours. Despite this being the first experience with the author, the attention grabbing synopsis created high expectations for the story. Well, it didn’t disappoint. Her Silent Bones as the first book sets the tone for the rest of the books in the series. It delivered a powerful and fast-paced tale filled with mind-blowing twists, a well crafted mystery and non-stop action.

The characters featured all bear emotional scars from their traumatic past. There were those who chose to channel their experience into something positive by trying to find justice for the victims of crimes. Then there were those who chose to crime as their pathway. They also had secrets, which delivered shocking revelations.

It was interesting getting to know the characters, especially the killer who called himself the delivery man. The deeper one goes into the story, the reason behind the moniker is revealed.

Now, whilst the mystery behind the murders was solved, there were still some unanswered questions. Most of which relates to the shocking revelations. Her Silent Bones delivered a solid start to an exciting new series and I look forward to picking up the next book.

Stephanie Cannon narrates. This is my second time experiencing her work. I enjoyed listening to her then, and this time was no different. She did an exceptional job with both the male and female voices.

About Stephanie Cannon

A dedicated and professional US voice, you’ll feel a special spark working with me. I’ve been in love with storytelling since I was little. I studied acting at University and now work across voiceover, theatre, film and television, which really is a dream come true. I bring passion (and decades of experience) to each project I undertake, whether the story is told through voiceover, narration or physical performance. My clients receive a positive and professional creative experience, speedily delivered in high quality audio from my home studio. I bring copy to life with clarity and friendliness, but also have the skills to keep listeners engaged in even the most technical of scripts. When I’m not chatting with the many voices in my head, you’ll find me swimming, hiking and travelling the world. I also care deeply about the environment, so you’ll usually find me happily cycling from home to your studio.
