The missing woman is none other than Kelly Langton, once the glamour model 'Kelly,' and now an astute businesswoman with her own clothing, jewellery, and fragrance ranges and not surprising, media interest is off the scale.

Simultaneously his new Detective Chief Inspector commands his attention to a missing persons case, one Kelly Langton, former top model, wealthy businesswoman, mother of two, who has disappeared, without passport, clothing, or car. The case is not at all what it seems, and tosses the diligent DI into constant twists, dead ends, and imminent fatality. This is the kind of down home British police procedural I so admire.

    Detective Inspector Angus Henderson has his hands full. A very well-known woman has gone missing, and the media is going crazy. And as in all cases involving a missing woman, the first person of interest is always the husband, boyfriend, or ex ... someone up close and personal. Things are pointing to the husband, but DI Henderson has a gut-feeling that there is more to be looked at. And then another woman vanishes ..... and there are just too many similarities to overlook. Because these women left Detective Inspector Angus Henderson has his hands full. A very well-known woman has gone missing, and the media is going crazy. And as in all cases involving a missing woman, the first person of interest is always the husband, boyfriend, or ex ... someone up close and personal. Things are pointing to the husband, but DI Henderson has a gut-feeling that there is more to be looked at. And then another woman vanishes ..... and there are just too many similarities to overlook. Because these women left without anything and their cell phones and credit cards have not been used, he feels they're looking at a serial killer. The book is well-written, the characters are relatable. It does well showcasing how an investigation is done ... the questioning, checking motives and alibis. The plot stays more or less on an even keel ... until Henderson finds his man. Then the tension is ratcheted up ten-fold. Very good reading especially if you like British Police Procedurals. My thanks to the author / Cameron Publicity & Marketing Ltd / NetGalley who furnished a digital copy in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

    I know this author has written many books and this is part of a series but not a stand a lone. I was trying to get into the gist of it but didn't seem to be straight forward at times for me, I was getting a bit confused between plots. I think there is the same person mentioned in the main plot and the sub plot, I just couldn't really separate it. I liked the plot of the woman missing. She takes her kids to school, drops them off then something happens to her.

Repeating the same information over and over, as though the readers are small children who need constant reminders of information about characters.....information that is not relevant to the story, and after a while the extraneous information becomes tedious. Too much “character building” on characters that have no relation to the final outcome. Too much description of houses, landscape and buildings, and people’s ordinary lives when in the final event, these same characters are not part of the plot, but just relatively boring side issues to fill up space. As far as the whole book goes.....too much potatoes and not enough meat!

    This is the third of the Angus Henderson series that I have read, and compared to the previous two, I was rather disappointed. To begin it was quite slow and hard going but I was determined to persevere since I thorough enjoyed the first two. Things did start to improve when I got to about a third of the way in and as the story went on, it became more enjoyable and quite faced paced.

The actual main plot was exciting, but I felt the early part of the book concentrated more on trivial details that were not either pertinent or interesting. It is a great shame because I felt that more could have been made of the story. The final few chapters were the usual race to the end with a few breath-taking moments and the obligatory happy ending. I shall read more in this series in the hope that they return to the normal, interesting format.

After a buildup of several possible suspects, the perpetrator ends up being someone not mentioned in the entire book. Also, I had noticed that early in the book a young Pakistani police understudy had been described as smelling of garlic and sweat and later in the book the perpetrator was described as smelling of garlic and cologne.

Finally, the main character being reduced to a helpless observer to the climax disappointed me.

    Excellent! D I Henderson and team are searching for missing women. There are too many contradictions, little evidence, and conflicting stories. This is an unusual mystery but Angus perseveres and ends up in danger in the exciting final chase!

    Note that Fear The Silence is the third instalment in the series featuring Scottish Detective Inspector Angus Henderson from the Sussex police force. When I initially requested this book from the publisher, I did not know that it was part of a series.

When I initially requested this book from the publisher, I did not know that it was part of a series. However, this did not prevent me from enjoying the story as Iain Cameron did a good job at providing background information whenever needed. I enjoyed this police procedural in general, especially the main plot around the disappearance of Kelly Langton and the subsequent quest for the culprit. The story was crafted skilfully enough that I kept trying to guess the killer's identity until the end. Likewise, I quite liked the character of DI Henderson, which I thought was an interesting lead and believable in his actions and words. Overall, I believe that Cameron has done a good job of bringing his characters to life, even if I did not care much for the other protagonists, such as Walters, etc. As in most crime books, there was a sub-plot to the Kelly Langton disappearance, which centred around drug shipments in the Shoreham Harbour (Sussex). This sub-plot was apparently one of the main plots in the first two books in the series and, in this latest entry, DI Henderson is still trying to nab his nemesis, the drug lord operating in the area. Now, I understand the need for sub-plots in books and I generally think that they really add to the narrative. However, I found this second plot quite confusing at first as one of the characters was common to both storylines and this made me wonder had I missed something crucial in the narrative. Similarly, I was not really drawn into the drug dealing thing. Not that it was badly written or anything, but I just felt that it detracted from the main plot and did not add much to the whole story. As for the end, I feel that it was somewhat rushed and neglected a bit. One thing that I do not understand is the meaning of the title. I did not really see any specific reference to silence in the book. Maybe I missed it. I know that it is only a detail, but I like being able to correlate the title to the story. But that is just me. Overall, Fear The Silence was a decent read but I do not think that I will read the first books in the series, nor the next one for that matter. There was just something lacking for me, that je-ne-sais-quoi that would have made it great.

With the ensuing media uproar, visible pressure is put on the police to come to a quick resolution. DI Angus Henderson is uncomfortable with being assigned to a missing person's case, but it soon becomes apparent that he has a potential murder inquiry on his hands. Without a body or physical evidence, murder is difficult to prove. The Chief Super wants the case quickly closed, and suspicion falls on Kelly's husband, an arrogant television producer. Soon after his arrest, another woman disappears in similar circumstances, drawing Angus to examine other mispers cases. Someone is kidnapping and killing women, and he needs to be stopped. Fear the Silence is a chilling police procedural that keeps the reader guessing the killer's identity until the end. While it isn't exemplary, it is a solid addition to the genre. Cameron does a good job of bringing his characters to life. DI Henderson is a fascinating lead, calm but perceptive. It is easy to underestimate him. The thoroughness of the killer adds to the tension. It never seems certain that he will be caught. The one aspect of the novel I have mixed feelings about is the inclusion of unrelated criminal activities. On the one hand, it isn't realistic for a detective to only focus on one case, so it adds to the realism. On the other hand, it doesn't add to the main plot, and can be a distraction. 4/5 I received a copy of Fear the Silence from the publisher and netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review. --Crittermom http://muttcafe.com/2015/09/fear-the-...

    Rating Fear the Silence was difficult for me. I almost stopped reading 1/3 of the way into the book. The pace was slow, methodical, and nothing had really begun to coalesce. I realized that I needed to push through this opening, if pacing didn't pick up I would have rated the book with 2. It occurred to me that police investigations are usually very slow, methodical, and don't necessarily coalesce quickly. This is the case with Fear the Silence.

It occurred to me that police investigations are usually very slow, methodical, and don't necessarily coalesce quickly. This is the case with Fear the Silence. Having not read the first two Angus Henderson novels may have been a factor. There might well be backstory or character development. So my recommendation would be to start with the first novel. The novel began to pick up pace as the original suspect was being held with only circumstantial evidence. This turning point in the pace continued until the end. Although I did find the ending to be slapped together. The ending feels like an add on rather than a conclusion. As if Iain Cameron was unsure how it should end. Other than a few grammatical errors and proofreading misses the book is well written. Mr Cameron has given readers a new character in DI Henderson. Their are other characters that may have already begun to be fleshed out from previous work but these to can help propel the series forward. I will go back and read the first two novels. In doing so there is a possibility of raising the rating on Fear the Silence. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    (Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC!) I would say this is a 2.5, maybe three star read. I liked the idea of a Scottish detective in England, and I'm always up for a good murder mystery, but this whole book was a little flat for me--lackluster writing, a murder plot that switched gears midstream, and an overall lack of twists and turns to keep me turning pages. I think it also didn't help that the plot was split between the disappearance of Kelly and a drug smuggling operation, and so neither mystery (Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC!)

    I would like to thank NetGalley and the publishers for giving me the opportunity to read this book in return for an honest and open review. This was a very enjoyable police-procedural novel. DI Angus Henderson is a well drawn character who I took to immediately. There are more twists and turns in the story than on a roller-coaster and so many of them were unpredictable.

    This book had too many storylines and time jumps to make it an enjoyable read. It was very monotonous and the various storylines would randomly pop up so it was hard to even know what you were reading about at times. There was very little mystery or suspense.
