Title: Silent Survivor
Author: Deborah Shilan
Narrator: Laura Wills Mooney
Some secrets can be deadly….
Stepping into the darkened hospital clinic, Mackenzie (Mac) Dodd hears the faint click of a revolver before spotting the barrel pressed against the young marine’s temple. Unable to stop the suicide, Mac blames herself. Encouraged by her idealistic neighbor, she posts the incident on Silent Survivor, a blog in which she encourages veterans with PTSD to share stories. When the marine’s widow reveals there may be more to her husband’s suicide, Mac begins an investigation, risking her life to expose secrets and betrayals as she uncovers the unintended consequences of covert government research.
Silent Survivor is a military fiction where our MC, Mackenzie, is a nurse returning from the Iraq war. After everything she’s seen and had happen to her, she’s desperate to get back to life as normal. To help her cope with PTSD, she writes a blog about her experiences. When soldiers begin to mysteriously die of suicide, she is brought in to investigate.
Overall, this is a thrilling listen that kept me on the edge of my seat. The characters were all very well fleshed out, making it easy to root for the MC especially.
Narrator had a good variety of voices and emotions for the different characters and emotional situations. Very easy to listen to.
