SILENT NIGHT by Nell Pattison

I started this book thinking it is a Christmassy one judging by the cover and title because I always tend to judge a book by it’s cover. It is definitely Christmas themed but nonetheless a very good read. It is very fast paced and I couldn’t turn the pages faster to know what’s going on and whodunnit.

A school for the deaf takes an overnight trip to the snowy woods. Five teenagers go to sleep, but only four wake up. Leon is missing, and a teacher’s body is found in the forest… Sign language interpreter Paige Northwood is brought in to help with interrogations. Everyone at the school has a motive for murder – but they all have an alibi.  As Paige becomes increasingly involved, she suspects there’s something sinister going on. With the clock ticking to find Leon, only one thing is certain: the killer is among them, and ready to strike again…

The detailed descriptions and all flawed characters make everything believable and I have to say that I couldn’t help but picturing this story on the big screen.

I suspected the killer about midway through but I couldn’t find a real motive for it so I convinced myself otherwise and started finding suspects again. The seed was planted and the guessing game began

The mystery is revealed only in the last chapter and is jaw dropping. I played detective with Page and DI Singh and I loved it all the way.

I had no idea this was a series so now I need to find the first book and read it
