I don’t frequently read works that I regard as literary. Nor am I going to often read books of the period between the two world wars. I think this is because I’ve seen a lot of movies set then. At any rate, when I do sit down to read such a book, I want to feel as though I am an eye witness.
“The Silent Woman” works because it is an absorbing thriller written in a literary style. Much as I enjoy books written by Michael Creighton, Stephen King and Elmore Leonard, one would never anticipate that either of them could have written this sensitive historical thriller.
BLUSH FACTOR No worries here. You can feel free to read this to fellow members of your prayer group.
‘...Let go of my purse!’ Cat cried out.
The woman yanked on the bag. When that didn’t work, she reached inside, her fingers grasping Reginald’s envelope. Cat pulled her bag close to her chest and held fast. Her attacker persisted, but Cat held on.
‘Give it to me,’ the woman said.
‘Let go of me,’ Cat said.
‘You there!’ a man called out from down the street. He took off at a run towards Cat and her assailant, his tie flapping in the wind.
‘Just give me the envelope and you won’t get hurt,’ the woman said through gritted teeth.
With one final pull, Cat jerked the bag free of the woman’s grasp. The woman growled like a dog. The punch came hard and fast, like the strike of a snake. The woman’s fist connected with Cat’s cheek, knocking Cat’s head back. Stars swam before her. Her knees started to buckle. She clung to the bag as she sank to the hard pavement. Once she was down on the ground, she sat dazed and unable to move. Through the crowd of legs that stood around her, she recognised the scuffed brown shoes that belonged to the woman as she walked away, her gait sure and steady.
‘Call the police,’ someone said.
‘Is anyone a doctor? I think she’s...’
Taken from location 451, Chapter 1, “The Lost Woman” by Terry Lynn Thomas.
Not often do I read a literary work. In “The Lost Woman” we have an historical thriller that puts us squarely in a most fascinating, dreadful, period in which good faces evil. What I most appreciate is that it subtly crept into my subconscious. By around 15 percent into the book, I was hooked.
Four stars out of five.

I cannot wait to read the second book of this series!!!
