Review:

Like Alison Littlewood's earlier books this one is well paced and fast moving and keeps the reader guessing * Spectral Times * Ben Cassidy proves himself a worthwhile protagonist as he seeks to defend his family, and the story builds nicely to a climactiv final reveal . . . a satisfying return to the world of A Cold Season * Sci-Fi Bulletin * The writing is great, there are surprises and shocks and this book still delivers the chills * Blue Book Balloon * I give A Cold Silence a big 666/666 * Horror Hothouse *
