Detective Jo Fournier really has her hands full with her current case. A mother is killed under brutal circumstances and one of the clues that Jo discovers is that by the way the house was found locked that the victim might have known the killer. Furthermore, the deeper investigation goes, Jo is able to make a connection to a previous cold case with a murder of another mother. Meanwhile, Joe is dealing with a personal situation involving her sister Sophie and their strained relationship.
In fact, as things start to evolve, it appears that the very killer that they are looking for may have a revenge plot against her family and Jo is trying to tie everything together before another victim is found or anyone in her family is hurt. While all of this is going on, readers are given privy to the killer‘s perspective. In fact, the killer’s identity is made clear early on. Will Jo and her team be able to assess all of the clues in front of them to find this killer swiftly?
One thing this book reminded me of was the television series Dexter. That criminal mastermind had a reason behind his killings and that similarity is something that slowly becomes evident in this exciting book. In fact, what we have is an ingenious murderer who will stop at nothing while trying to meet their objectives.
Her Silent Prayer is an excellent installment in a thrilling series. Jo is a fabulous detective and a relatable protagonist. I have loved the previous four books in this series and I am very much looking forward to continuing with the next book.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion.
