"I’m the daughter of murdered parents.
I’m the friend of a dead girl.
I’m the lover of my enemy.
And I will have my revenge.
In the wake of the devastating destruction of the luxury yacht Persephone, just three souls remain to tell its story—and two of them are lying. Only Frances Mace knows the terrifying truth, and she’ll stop at nothing to avenge the murders of everyone she held dear. Even if it means taking down the boy she loves and possibly losing herself in the process.
Sharp and incisive, Daughter of Deep Silence by bestselling author Carrie Ryan is a deliciously smart revenge thriller that examines perceptions of identity, love, and the lengths to which one girl is willing to go when she thinks she has nothing to lose."
Carolyn's thoughts on the book:
It's no secret that I love mysteries, but I find revenge thrillers to be equally as enthralling. This book is the revenge thriller to end all revenge thrillers, full of unsavory political dealings, international corporate espionage, and one girl's remorseless quest for the truth - and, of course, revenge. The plot is crafted just as meticulously as Frances' plan is; her descent into complete vengeance is believable and even twistedly justifiable. Her brilliant plan and ruthless ambition are terrifyingly awing, and yet I oddly found myself sympathizing with Frances. The Southern setting serves as a perfect backdrop for Frances' mission, and the guise of a sweet Southern belle hides the sharply focused young woman Frances is. Complications abound, between being targeted herself for what she knows to falling in love with the son of the very politician who condemned her family (among thousands of others) to die. Without getting into dangerously spoiler-y territory, the ending of the book is ultimately satisfying, but in an unexpected way.
Daughter of Deep Silence is a great read for those who enjoy smart, engrossing thrillers, and is a fantastic addition to any reader's bookshelf.
