A little while ago I reviewed The Start of Something by Miranda Dickinson for My Weekly in a a post you’ll find here. Now Miranda is back with a brand new name, M J White, and a brand new genre in The Secret Voices. I’m thrilled to be reviewing The Secret Voices for My Weekly today.
Published by Canelo’s imprint Hera on 28th April 2022, The Secret Voices is available for purchase through the links here.
The Secret Voices
They said they’d keep me safe.
They said, ‘It’s okay, Hannah. You know you can trust me.’
When eight-year-old Hannah Perry goes missing in the small Suffolk village of St Just, the community is rocked. Heading up the investigation is Acting DS Rob Minshull, but he’s out of his depth in a case that seems to mirror the disappearance of a young boy, seven years ago. That search ended in unimaginable tragedy…and Minshull is praying that history won’t be repeated.
But with an investigation full of dead ends, and a kidnapper taunting the police with sinister deliveries of Hannah’s belongings and cryptic notes, the young girl’s life hangs perilously in danger.
Until Dr Cora Lael enters the picture. A psychologist with a unique ability, Cora’s rare gift allows her to sense emotions attached to discarded objects. When she is shown the first of Hannah’s belongings, she hears the child’s piercing scream.
With few leads on the case, could Cora prove Hannah’s only hope? And as time runs out, can they find Hannah before history repeats itself…?
A twisty, original and utterly gripping detective thriller that fans of James Oswald and LJ Ross will love. Don’t miss the crime thriller debut from the bestselling women’s fiction author, Miranda Dickinson.
My Review of The Secret Voices
My full review of The Secret Voices can be found on the My Weekly website here.
However, here I can say that The Secret Voices is a highly unusual, fresh and engaging approach to a police procedural story that hooks in the reader through Dr Cora Lael and leaves them wanting the next book in the series – now! I thoroughly enjoyed it.
