The Silenced

Mallory Grace just killed a man. To survive the next hour, she'll have to kill again. To survive the night, she'll need a miracle.

Obadiah Macintosh doesn't seem like a miracle. He is a recluse who works alone at an animal sanctuary, and he has a secret. When the dogs in his care alert him to intruders hidden by the darkness, he knows they are coming for him.

Mallory and Obadiah were strangers, brought together for one purpose. To give new light to a terrifying world.

But now they are on the run, and evil intends to find them.

The Silenced is fast-paced, dark and electrifying - the war between good and evil is brewing...

Stephen Lloyd Jones - acclaimed author of The String Diaries and The Disciple - returns with a brand-new supernatural thriller. The Silenced will thrill and delight fans of Stephen King, Sarah Lotz and Lauren Beukes.


The Silenced will be published by Headline Publishing in April 2018.
