The Unheard – Nicci French


I have read the majority of the novels by Nicci French and have loved each and every one of them. This was yet another brilliant read.

The novel is written from the viewpoint of Tess, a single mother to three-year-old Poppy, but she shares the parenting with Jason, her former partner. They never married as they didn’t consider it necessary, although Jason has since married.

Although strained the co-parenting seems to be going well until Poppy returns from a weekend stay with Jason carrying a disturbing picture she has drawn and wets the bed that evening, something she hasn’t done for some time. Tess is fraught and tries to find out what has caused this.

It is a dark psychological thriller full of imperfect characters, several of whom have dark secrets. Cleverly plotted with twists and turns which keep coming throughout the read.

Thank you NetGalley, Simon and Schuster UK and Nicci French for my ARC of The Unheard in return for my honest review.

Another must read, highly recommended.
