Suzanne Milner is a graduate student researching young offenders in Sheffield. She finds the body of a young woman. Soon another young woman’s body is found. There seems to be an unexplained connection between several young people.
Listen to the Shadows works fairly well as a psychological thriller: there are enough twists and misdirection to keep us off-balance and guessing until the end. The protagonist, though, is an exasperating mess. Beset by deep-seated feelings of inadequacy and festered guilt, she spends most of the book being buffeted by events, reacting helplessly, unable to cope.
