On a normal Wednesday afternoon, Judge Scott Sampson is preparing to pick up his six-year-old twins for their weekly swim. His wife Alison texts him with a change of plan: she has to take them to the doctor instead. So Scott heads home early. But when Alison arrives back later, she is alone – no Sam, no Emma – and denies any knowledge of the text . . .
The phone then rings: an anonymous voice tells them that the Judge must do exactly what he is told in an upcoming drug case and, most importantly, they must ‘say nothing’.
So begins this powerful, tense breakout thriller about a close-knit young family plunged into unimaginable horror. As a twisting game of cat and mouse ensues, they know that one false move could lose them their children for ever.
Hugely suspenseful – with its fascinating insight into the US judicial system and its politics of influence and nepotism – Say Nothing is, above all, the poignant story of the terror these parents face, and their stop-at-nothing compulsion to get their children back.
Grabs your heart in the first chapter, and doesn't let go until the last line.
Outstanding - starts with a bang and gets tenser and tenser.
Parks perfectly nails the dynamics of a family under the gun and has conjured a plot that leaps straight from today’s headlines. This novel’s a winner!
Tremendously satisfying, packed with engaging characters and surprising plot twists and a furious build of tension until its gut-wrenching pay-off.
A twisting, suspenseful ride that adds a new and original twist to the legal thriller: a judge, cornered.
Terrific book. Truly terrific. Tension throughout and tears at the end. What could be better than that?
