‘Silent Winter’ by Maggie James

Silent Winter

When Drew Blackmore is beaten up and abducted, he finds himself in a desperate situation – chained up and left with scarcely enough food to survive, he struggles to work out what he must have done to deserve such treatment. Meanwhile, his wife Holly runs to Drew’s brother for help, but as the pair grow closer, the truth about her husband’s past slowly begins to emerge.

This is a typical Maggie James thriller with a strong, twisty-turny plot and well-drawn characters. Drew’s desperate situation kept me wondering what on earth was coming next, and I especially liked the difficult relationship between Holly and Todd, which is craftily plotted and realistic in its portrayal. Though I did get a bit confused at times, Ms James managed to bring everything together at the end with her usual panache.

A first-rate psychological thriller, delivering exactly what we’ve learned to expect from this very talented author.
