About the book:
Meet the Bensons. A pleasant enough couple. They keep themselves to themselves. They wash their car, mow their lawn and pass the time of day with their neighbours. And they have a beautiful little girl called Daisy.
There’s just one problem. Daisy doesn’t belong to the Bensons. They stole her.
And now they’ve decided that Daisy needs a little brother or sister.
D. S. Nathan Cody is about to face his darkest and most terrifying case yet . . .

You guys! YOU GUYS!!! THIS BOOK!!!! It definitely nearly broke me. I have such a grá (love in Irish in case you want to know!) for Nathan Cody. I never want to stop reading when I pick up any of David’s Cody series, and Don’t Make A Sound was no exception.
But I had to put it down… to catch my breath, because THINGS HAPPEN! And I wasn’t prepared for how it made me feel!!! I picked the book up again after a few deep breaths, but I was super tense until I turned those last pages.
What a bloody thrill ride!!!
There is no doubt that David Jackson is an awesome writer, but he is also a master manipulator after this one (Love you really, Dave!) because it really messed with my head, heart and emotions. I am NOT complaining though, because this knack that Dave has means that his books will keep me gripped from start to finish.
EVERY. DAMN. TIME.
Don’t Make A Sound, for me, is the best book in the series so far. Without a shadow of a doubt. The plot is pitch perfect. The atmosphere is dark and nervy. The characters are so well-drawn (goodies and baddies) that the reader becomes immersed almost immediately and that denouement, perfection.
I can’t praise Dave or his books highly enough. Firmly on my favourites list for life, this series just keeps getting better and better.
Raw, dark and with an emotional gut-punch, Don’t Make A Sound is one thriller you DO NOT want to miss.
