The Quiet Deaths


Deaths are occurring in Hipton, a small market town in England. Each time they are explained. But what if these deaths weren’t natural deaths after all? What if they were murder? This is a psychological crime thriller where the reader knows the female killer, Agnes Brink from the first page. The novel tracks Agnes Brink as she plans and kills her victims and we learn why she is doing this. There is a fast pace to the novel which unfolds in both Hipton and Amsterdam, home of Agnes Brink, with each chapter alternating between the two places. We meet DCI Mark Morgan, based in Hipton who has the tricky job of solving what at first were deaths thought to be the result of natural causes. As the novel progresses, we delve into the past to learn more about Agnes Brink and the strange world she inhabits. Agnes Brink is a dangerous woman, whose preoccupation with researching what she thinks is her family tree, leads her to kill. Her mind steadily becomes more delusional as the novel progresses, leading to a total of three murders with an attempted fourth. She is desperately trying to create a family for herself, something that she has never truly had. But the way she goes about it is terrifying. There are also plenty of back stories to keep the reader interested which give us an insight into Mark Morgan’s busy and complicated life and those of his family and friends. The characters are colourful and set the scene for a series of five or six novels, each one set in Hipton together with another European location.

Great crime/mystery novel,tightly written with plenty of action and intrigue. Think of Susan Hill's Simon Serrailler novels with a European twist. There are plenty of back stories all about Mark Morgan and family too to really get involved with. See reviews posted on Amazon.

Hello, I live in Gloucestershire with my husband and our cat Rosie. I have three crime thrillers published;'The Quiet Deaths','All in the Line of Duty' and the latest,'Palaeofauna', all featuring DCI Mark Morgan. The novels develop with alternating chapters between Hipton in England and Amsterdam in 'The Quiet Deaths', between Hipton and Schwendau, Austria in 'All in the Line of Duty' and centre around Bristol in 'Palaeofauna'. There are back stories aplenty in all three novels so readers can really get to know the main characters and their complicated lives. Do check out the good reviews on amazon and I hope you enjoy the books, Amy.
