Not A Sound Reviews

Not A Sound book cover“Heather Gudenkauf is one of my favorite new authors, and NOT A SOUND explains why. You won’t be able to put down this breathless story of a young nurse, Amelia Winn, who has lost everything after a tragic accident – her nursing career, her husband, her stepdaughter, and even her hearing. You’ll root for Amelia as she battles to reclaim her life and even fights to get justice for a friend of hers, a nurse who was brutally murdered. NOT A SOUND is not only a riveting thriller, but it’s a moving portrait of a woman who is stronger than she ever believed possible, against all odds.”
–Lisa Scottoline, New York Times bestselling author of MOST WANTED

“Twisting, atmospheric and dark, Heather Gudenkauf’s NOT A SOUND will draw you right into the silent world of Amelia Winn and keep you riveted. This is a thrill ride to be sure, but it’s also a gripping tale of tragedy and redemption. If you haven’t read Heather Gudenkauf yet, now’s the time.”
–Lisa Unger, New York Times bestselling author of THE RED HUNTER

“Heather Gudenkauf has created a special thriller with a unique and brilliantly effective hook that I simply could not put down. NOT A SOUND gripped me and held me tight until the very last page — and I’m still shivering.”
–C.J. Box, #1 New York Times Bestselling author of VICIOUS CIRCLE

“Gudenkauf has created a memorable character in Amelia. Self-deprecating and sometimes angry, her candid voice is a breath of fresh air and an antidote to traditional thriller heroines. In addition, she is self-reliant and strong. The plot contains some clever twists, and the final showdown crackles with tension. It’s hard not to root for Amelia and Stitch; flawed as they are, they’re tough, engaging fighters. Come for the mystery; stay for the taut suspense, the unique heroine—and of course, the ugly, loyal dog.”
–Kirkus Reviews

“As increasingly frightening events menace the heart-tuggingly vulnerable Amelia and her fiercely loyal four-legged protector, Gudenkauf maximizes tension all the way through the literally cliff-hanging finale.”
–Publishers Weekly Starred Review
