‘Do you believe Will took his own life?’ The question echoed off the white tiles in the hospital’s cold, cavernous morgue, and I studied my husband in peaceful repose. I leaned down and put my forehead against his. Silent tears ran down my cheeks. They felt hot, and he felt so cold. It was five days since his death, and my grief felt heavy, like a vast, dark mass pushing down on me.

It’s always brave when a writer of successful series’ writes their first standalone – did Robert Bryndza pull it off? Hell yeah! This is a fast-paced edge of your seat rollercoaster of a book. — Donna, Netgalley reviewer

What a Phenomenal story! A high-octane page turner. I loved Maggie and the scary island setting was great. — Sian, Netgalley reviewer

I read it in one sitting as every chapter stopped at a cliff hanger in the narrative that made me read the next one. A brilliant book that I am happy to recommend to any fan of a good thriller. — Patricia, Netgalley reviewer

Robert Bryndza, the international multi-million bestselling author is back with his first stand-alone thriller Fear the Silence. A heart-racing, hold-your-breath read that will keep you hooked until the very last page.

When Maggie’s husband, Will, is shot dead in their London home, she thinks he is the victim of a burglary until the police tell her the shocking news that Will was the one who pulled the trigger. Maggie is consumed with grief and questions. Will wasn’t suicidal. He had so much to live for. After the funeral, Maggie travels to their holiday home on a small Croatian island to escape London. She finds a disturbing letter written by Will, containing clues to a dark secret. As Maggie puts the pieces together, she discovers Will’s death is connected to someone from his past… Someone who will go to extreme lengths to keep Maggie silent.

Three can keep a secret… If two of them are dead.
