Thats the thread. Follow it. Youll reach the Silent Ones.
This is your way - our way - of making a difference.With this challenge from Father Edmund Littlemore, Anselm returns to the Old Bailey to fight the most difficult and troubling case of his life. The man in the dock is Littlemore himself. He is charged with grave offences against Harry Brandwell who, it seems, is both a victim and a liar. But hes the only link to these others whove chosen silence over their right to justice.Unknown to Anselm, Robert Saunders, a journalist, has been investigating Littlemores background.
And hes a man with a troubled past, always on the move, from Boston in the USA to Freetown in Sierra Leone, finally running from a London police station rather than explain himself. More disturbingly, Robert uncovers details of a carefully planned scheme to entice Anselm back into court, exploiting his reputation for honesty to secure a shock acquittal.Meanwhile Harry Brandwell - abused, abandoned and betrayed - has decided to take matters into his own hands.The Silent Ones examines the one crime that Church, State and Family thought they could hide in their own best interests- Anselms return is a compelling novel about the anatomy of silence, the courage of victims and the redemptive power of public justice.
