Product Details


“Susie Steiner takes the pulse of our times while weaving a brilliantly gripping tale. Manon Bradshaw is one of my favorite literary creations of all time. I’m so envious of Susie’s talent. Her writing is truly without parallel.”—Lucy Foley, author of The Hunting Party

Remain Silent is her best. Hurrah for DI Manon Bradshaw in all her tender, outrageously rude, insightful, and flawed magnificence. Flew through it, laughing out loud at her gags. And then cried at the end. Perfect. Loved it.”—Fiona Barton, author of The Suspect

Remain Silent made me laugh, kept me guessing till the end, and made me care long after I’d closed the book. No one writes crime fiction like Susie Steiner: Agatha Christie as scripted by Victoria Wood or Alan Bennett.”—Erin Kelly, author of Stone Mothers

“Funny, and sad, and astonishingly smart.”—Katherine Heiny, author of Standard Deviation

“Manon Bradshaw is SUCH a great creation. Remain Silent is so spot-on about love, relationships, middle-age, being a woman. The plot  broke my heart. So MOVING.”—Marian Keyes, author of Grown Ups

“I can’t imagine reading a better crime novel this year. A beautifully wrapped gift of a tale that both chills and warms the heart. I loved it.”—Renée Knight, author of The Secretary

Remain Silent is brilliant; I cherished every page. Funny, tender, wise, angry, and completely gripping, this book is a joy. Manon is a glorious heroine and Susie Steiner is a writer beyond compare.”—Jane Casey, author of Cruel Acts 
“Susie Steiner is a genius. Simultaneously heartbreaking and hilarious, profound and page-turning, this book contains multitudes.”—Lucie Whitehouse, author of Before We Met

“It’s [Susie Steiner’s] best yet, which is saying something. Her fictional detective Manon Bradshaw is one of my favourite creations of recent years.”—India Knight, The Sunday Times

“With Remain Silent . . . Susie Steiner flexes her authorial muscles. . . . She eloquently captures the savage, ravaging fear that underlies everything from xenophobia and sexism, to plain old, soul-destroying bitterness. But there’s a softer light shining here too in Bradshaw’s musings on middle age, the gentle teasing that goes on between her and her colleagues, and even a dose of the tough love that’s sometimes required when it comes to lasting friendship. I read this book in a single sitting, pushed to both tears and laughter.”—The Seattle Review of Books

­“Readers will be buoyed by the brilliance of Steiner’s dark humor and the power of her narrative. Recommend this to fans of Kate Atkinson, Tana French, and, of course, Val McDermid.”Booklist
“Savvy, sharp, and smart.”Kirkus Reviews
