The Crime Stack: The Silent Listener by Lyn Yeowart

Welcome to the Crime Stack for April. Penguin has kindly offered 20 copies of The Silent Listener, by Victorian member, Lyn Yeowart. The book, which is loosely based on events from her childhood growing up in rural Victoria, won the Debut Fiction Award in the Indie Books Awards 2022 announced on 21 March. Lyn is now happily ensconced in Melbourne, where there is very little mud, but lots of books.

Propelling the reader back and forth between the 1940s, 1960s, and 1980s, The Silent Listener is an unforgettable literary suspense novel set in the dark, gothic heart of rural Australia. A missing 9-year-old girl… An old man murdered when he had only days to live … An ‘accident’ from long ago that no one talks about …

“The Silent Listener is simply unforgettable,” says the Sydney Morning Herald.

“A tale of suspense and revenge, beautifully written,” says The Age.
