Silver by Chris Hammer


Journalist Martin Scarsden returns to Port Silver, the town he fled as a teenager, to make a fresh start with his partner Mandy. But he arrives to find his childhood friend murdered – and Mandy is the prime suspect. Desperate to clear her name Martin goes searching for the truth.

In this, the second novel from Chris Hammer, we once again see Martin, relentlessly chasing leads, this time with the more personal task of proving his partner innocent.  Still the journalist racing to beat the others to the “scoop”,   more and more he finds himself questioning the impact his stories have on those closest to him.

The more involved he becomes in the chase the more memories return to him, and he is forced to confront the truth of those memories.

This thriller has it all – a gripping , page -turning plot that moves seamlessly between past and present, a compelling lead character bombarded  by childhood memories and difficult choices. It is an intensely written intelligent thriller. I couldn’t put it down!
